Pennsylvania Bankers Public Affairs Committee (PaBPAC)
History of PaBPAC
The Pennsylvania Bankers Public Affairs Committee (PaBPAC) was created in 1974 to assist individual bankers and others in organizing for more effective political action, raising funds for this action, and making contributions to political candidates who support banking ideals.
Today, PaBPAC still honors this primary purpose by supporting the election campaigns of selected candidates for Pennsylvania Legislature and U.S. Congress in the best interest of our members and the banking industry.
PaBPAC Federal is a political action committee through which contributions are raised to support the U.S. Congress. PaBPAC Federal is affiliated with the American Bankers Association’s BankPAC. This affiliation requires the Committee to share a single limit on contributions made to Federal candidates and other political committees.
Nothing on this web site constitutes a solicitation of contributions to PaBPAC Federal. Contributions to PaBPAC Federal must be pre-authorized by your financial institution’s CEO. Please contact the Government Relations Department for more information.
PaBPAC State is a separate political action committee through which contributions are raised to support selected candidates for the Pennsylvania Legislature.
Both PaBPAC State and PaBPAC Federal are governed by the PaBPAC Board of Directors and comply with applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing political action committees. Campaign expense reports are filed with the PA Department of State’s Bureau of Elections for PaBPAC State and with the Federal Election Commission for PaBPAC Federal.
