Before serving in Congress, I spent more than 30 years in the financial services industry. I have seen firsthand the important role that local financial institutions play in helping families realize the American dream. We live in a world where banking is becoming more concentrated and lending is constrained.
As my colleagues and I continue to work on the reintroduction of the Financial CHOICE Act, I would like you to know that I am collecting stories of financial institutions and their customers who have lost access to credit, seen increased costs and fewer services, and have faced a restricted ability to get a mortgage, buy a new car or grow a business. Please share any stories with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
