Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL)
Congressman Randy Hultgren (R-Plano) is facing an energized general election opponent who is well-organized and well-funded. Congressman Hultgren has served as a crucial ally to the banking industry both at the state level while serving on the Illinois House and the Illinois Senate Financial Institutions Committees and at the federal level while serving on the U.S. House Financial Services Committee.
In fact, Congressman Hultgren first ran for Congress after the Dodd-Frank Act was passed, and it has been a core goal of his to roll-back this over-burdensome law which has been so harmful to community banking.
During his time in Congress, Congressman Hultgren has shown true leadership in advocating on behalf of the banking industry. He currently serves on the Financial Services Committee, where he serves as Vice-Chairman of the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities and Investment, as well as serving on the Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance.
Congressman Hultgren has co-sponsored countless beneficial banking industry bills over the years. In the 115th Congress alone, he has co-sponsored the resolution to roll back the CFPB Arbitration Rule (H.J. Res. 111); the BALE Act of 2017 (H.R. 831); the TAILOR Act (H.R. 1116); the CLEARR Act of 2017 (H.R. 2133); the Portfolio Lending & Mortgage Expansion Act (H.R. 2890); and the Systemic Risk Designation Improvement Act (H.R. 3312).
During this Congress, Congressman Hultgren introduced a bill to require agencies to analyze the consumer privacy, identity theft, and legal risk associated with releasing mortgage applicant information related to HMDA reporting obligations (H.R. 2204), as well as a bill to support the Federal Home Loan Bank System (H.R. 2890).
It is very clear that Congressman Hultgren is a true champion of the banking industry and is worthy of our support! Consider ensuring that Randy Hultgren will continue to be a voice for community banking in Congress.
