Tester joins colleagues in putting Main Street first

With the partisan divide appearing wider than ever, Senator Jon Tester is working to rise above it all by joining his colleagues to release a common-sense regulatory reform package focused on making a better environment for small Main Street financial institutions like credit unions.
Sen. Tester should be commended for ignoring party labels and putting together a piece of legislation that would give consumers better access to mortgages and other products, while freeing up credit union small business capital that can immediately be reinvested in their community.
As one of the authors of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, Sen. Tester has put politics aside for the good of his constituents and declared that one-size-fits-all regulations aren’t helping community-based financial institutions and they certainly aren’t helping consumers.
