Bankers Meet With Feenstra, Axne and Ernst

Iowa’s congressional delegation is back in Washington, D.C., after a couple weeks spent in-district. While Iowa’s congressional delegation was in the state, bankers took the opportunity to engage with them.

Meetings were held with Sen. Joni Ernst, Rep. Cindy Axne and Rep. Randy Feenstra. Bankers thanked Feenstra for introducing the Enhancing Credit Opportunities for Rural America legislation and encouraged Axne and Ernst to co-sponsor and support it. The bill makes income on farm real estate loans tax-exempt, lowering costs for Iowa farmers and allowing banks to compete for these loans on a level playing field. Bankers also updated the delegation on the state of their local economies, the Paycheck Protection Program, postal banking and tax equity.

These in-district interactions are invaluable and directly contribute to the banking industry’s success. Thank you to the following banks for hosting and/or attending meetings with Iowa’s delegation and their legislative staff.

  • First Bank Hampton
  • First National Bank, Ames
  • Lincoln Savings Bank
  • Bank Iowa
  • Northwest Bank
  • MidWestOne Bank
