The Legislative Committee studies and recommends changes in the banking laws and in other state statutes affecting banks.  On request, it assists the Association’s legislative agents, who are appointed by and answerable to the Executive Committee, in representing the Association at the Legislature and before committees of the Legislature or of Congress.  All new legislation proposed by this committee is submitted in writing to member financial institutions, and only upon concurrence of a majority of member institutions may the Association sponsor legislation.
