Washington, D.C. (May 12, 2015) – Richard Hunt, President and CEO of the Consumer Bankers Association (CBA), issued the following statement in response to the release of the discussion draft of “The Financial Regulatory Improvement Act of 2015,”sponsored by Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala):

“Chairman Shelby’s discussion draft appropriately addresses the repercussions of the ‘one-size-fits-all’ framework implemented by the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.  We appreciate the Chairman’s thoughtful approach to regulatory relief for U.S. financial institutions and, given the bipartisan support for a number of these provisions in the past, hope Republicans and Democrats can work together in the coming days to advance these reforms,” said CBA’s President and CEO Richard Hunt.
