Action Needed! Contact Congress and Tell Them to Repeal the Durbin Amendment

As Congress prepares to consider the Financial Choice Act, the CBA is strongly urging all bankers to contact and encourage their members of Congress to support efforts to repeal the Durbin Amendment and eliminate the government-imposed price controls on debit card interchange.

To help bankers craft their messages to lawmakers, the American Bankers Association has created a customizable draft message and a fact sheet about the negative effects of the Durbin Amendment on both banks and consumers.
