Barr Attends Signing Ceremony for Pro-Growth Financial Regulatory Relief Package


Washington, D.C. – Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) attended a White House signing ceremony today for S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, the most pro-growth regulatory relief legislation in a generation. This package includes two bills introduced by Congressman Barr – H.R. 2226, the Portfolio Lending and Mortgage Access Act, and H.R. 1699, the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act.

Kentucky banks and credit unions have been closing their doors at an alarming pace since the enactment of the 2,300-page Dodd-Frank Act,” said Congressman Andy Barr. “Endless red tape has led to led to Kentucky consumers being unable to access the credit they need to purchase a home, start a business, or finance their American Dream. I am proud that more than half of the provisions included in this bill originated from the House Financial Services Committee, including my Portfolio Lending and Mortgage Access Act and Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act. Now, we must build on our success to provide additional relief from burdensome financial regulations and continue our work to unleash economic growth in our communities.”
