IBANYS’ Government Relations Committee and Board of Directors recently held a conference call to discuss strategies on how to proceed on the list of bills of interest to community banks that were passed by both the State Senate and Assembly this past legislative session and may now be sent to Governor Cuomo for his signature or veto. View the list of bills discussed.
In addition, they include legislation related to credit unions, foreclosure/”zombie” properties and CRA. IBANYS’ President & CEO John Witkowski, Legislative Counsel Bill Crowell and Government Relations Director Steve Rice reviewed the list of bills. Note: Bill Crowell will be at our September Banking Executive Symposium in Clayton, New York to provide an update on the 2019 session and a preview of what likely awaits in 2020.
