CBA on the Issues

The Consumer Bankers Association engages on a host of issues to support our member banks and the customers they serve. Each year, CBA’s member-driven committees formulate the Association’s top priorities to address current policy needs for the retail banking industry.

2019 Priorities

Modernize the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA)

Advocate for changes to provide long term benefit to CRA and the communities our members serve.

Right-Size Federal Student Lending

Promote policies to unleash the private marketplace’s ability to serve students’ higher education goals and ensure the federal government serves those most in need in a responsible manner, and develop a public service “Know Before You Owe” campaign to inform students how much they will owe prior to borrowing.
