Mar. 4, 2021 - Washington, D.C.--U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), a senior member of the Senate Banking Committee, and U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho) have co-sponsored S. 563, the Fair Access to Banking Act, which would prevent discrimination by banks and financial service providers against constitutionally-protected industries and law-abiding businesses, such as firearms manufacturers. The bill is led by Senator Kevin Cramer (R-North Dakota) and co-sponsored by 24 Senators.
“Over the last few years, we have seen a disturbing trend in the financial services industry involving the intentional discrimination of entire industries by the largest banks in the United States,” Crapo said. “As Chairman of the Banking Committee, I repeatedly pressed financial institutions and federal regulators for fair treatment of lawfully-operating companies, and I will continue to provide strong oversight on this issue. Companies and customers complying with federal and state law must have access to credit and services based on their creditworthiness, rather than social or political pressure.”
