Government Relations and Legal Affairs

Through its government relations program, TBA represents the interests of our member banks to state government as well as federal legislative and regulatory bodies. The department reviews, monitors and responds to legislation and regulatory action, at both the state and federal level, and serves as a resource to legislators, their staff and agency/department staff. In addition, the Government Relations & Legal Affairs staff works with TBA’s member banks to promote the association’s government relations program and to encourage active participation in the process by providing the necessary resources and information needed to communicate effectively on the issues.
