Banner Year: FSR’s 2017 Priorities
March 16, 2017Visit our YouTube Channel
FSR’s members finance the American economy—creating jobs, driving economic growth, and helping more individuals and families reach their financial goals. 2017 can be a banner year for our nation, and the financial industry wants to help deliver greater opportunity for more Americans than ever before. That’s why we’re committed to working with public officials and policymakers to bring forth common sense reforms that help grow the economy and create more good-paying jobs, all while protecting taxpayers and the consumers we serve. Let’s make 2017 the year we finally fix our broken tax system. Let’s unleash America’s innovators and collaborate to move forward the biggest ideas in FinTech. Let’s modernize our regulations to keep up with innovation while getting rid of the inefficient ones holding us back like the Durbin Amendment. And let’s keep America safe and protect our critical cybersecurity infrastructure. This is the year we can bring accountability and transparency back to Washington by reforming important agencies like the CFPB. It’s been nearly a decade since the financial crisis and the bailouts of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Now is the time to rebuild our housing finance system so it better protects taxpayers without making it harder to get an affordable mortgage. We cannot keep kicking the can down the road. FSR is confident America’s best days lie ahead. Let’s make 2017 the year Washington expands opportunity and gets things done for the American people.
“This industry provides vitally important services to nearly every American – every day. Affordable access to financial services is key to growing the American economy and fueling the American dream.” -Tim Pawlenty, FSR CEO

FSR strongly supports enacting a simpler, fairer, and a more efficient tax code that significantly reduces tax rates on individuals, businesses, and investment income. Such reforms will create jobs, increase wages, bolster economic growth, and make America a more attractive place to invest.
