Ready to Get to Work
It was good to see new Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), move quickly to get the chamber refocused on taking up the peoples’ business.
While the past several weeks created some uncertainty, it also focused attention on perhaps the most crucial domestic policy agenda in front of our nation and elected officials: the state of the U.S. economy. AFSA members play a crucial role in helping consumers meet their financial needs and goals, and, more broadly providing consumers with the credit that fuels businesses’ bottom lines. Our fellow citizens want and deserve an America that works, with Federal and State elected officials, bureaucracies and policies that enable opportunity security and prosperity.
And, as our letter to the Speaker notes, AFSA and its members stand ready to work with policymakers at every level of government and look forward to working with Speaker Johnson and a bipartisan Congress on financial services policies that contribute to those worthy goals.
