Riding For Dodd-Frank Regulatory Relief

What Is Rolling For Repeal?

Pennsylvania’s Community Banks are responding to urgent concerns about bank regulations on bank customers and consumers. The Rolling for Repeal motorcycle tour highlights the crippling costs Pennsylvania communities and consumers pay because of Dodd-Frank legislation (The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009) signed into law by President Obama.


Why Are We Rolling For Repeal?



Pennsylvania cannot afford to lose one more community bank due to misguided regulations. The intent of the 2,300 page “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” was to reign in the risky, unethical practices of our nation’s largest financial institutions. FDIC statistics will prove that over the past 8 years the largest financial services companies (those over 1 trillion in assets) grew larger, which can easily be interpreted as posing a greater risk to our nation’s economy. The regulations have significantly strained Pennsylvania’s community banks by introducing an environment that forces mergers and threatens consumer options. Dodd-Frank has become a political litmus test to the two political parties in Washington, DC, but on Main Streets across America, the aftermath is fewer community banks and fewer consumer choices.


Rolling for Repeal is Making an Impact!

The Rolling for Repeal tour continues to sound the alarm warning that Pennsylvania cannot afford to lose one more community bank. Our warning has been heard and the U.S. Senate has taken action. On March 14, 2018 the Senate passed pro-community bank legislation and urged the House to advance needed relief immediately. The bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155) would bolster local economic and job growth by providing much-needed relief to Main Street community banks.
