The Banking Industry’s Voice on Capitol Hill

For more than 100 years, the Pennsylvania Bankers Association (PA Bankers) has played a key role shaping legislation and regulation impacting the banking industry. Our commitment to members is to shape and influence legislation and regulation in Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. PA Bankers represents the financial industry before the Pennsylvania Legislature, Governor's Office and various state departments and agencies as well as before Congress and the federal regulatory agencies.

State Legislative Priorities

The association's legislative priorities and positions on state issues impacting member banks are determined by the Government Relations Policy Committee. The committee is dedicated to reviewing and monitoring relevant bills to keep members aware of changes throughout Pennsylvania. 

Federal Legislative Priorities

PA Bankers is a member of the State Bankers Association Alliance with the American Bankers Association (ABA). This relationship provides a framework for the state banking associations to work together on federal legislation and regulation. PA Bankers' officers, the chair of the state Government Relations Policy Committee and Pennsylvania’s ABA Direct Contact Banker State Coordinator determine the Association's federal policy positions.
