Legislative and Regulatory Affairs

The financial services industry is broad and very diverse, and no segment of the industry is more important than the community banks.  Responsiveness, flexibility and creativity are the hallmarks that allow community banks to so ably serve the families and businesses on Main Streets across Pennsylvania.  We finance family dreams and are the economic engine that drives small business.

PACB is the only trade association in Pennsylvania that advocates exclusively for the community banking industry.

While many issues like debit card interchange restrictions pit all financial institutions and consumers against the big retailers, other issues – like how a bank is assessed for FDIC insurance – pit large banks against community banks.  In Harrisburg and Washington, PACB is the front line of defense protecting Pennsylvania’s community banking industry.
