IFA leadership on small business access to capital continues

News Round-Up

As noted in today's POLITICO Morning Money newsletter, IFA continues to expand its "Small Business Access to Capital Coalition.

Following the POLITICO oped last week from IFA President & CEO Steve Caldeira, Financial Services Roundtable President & CEO Steve Bartlett, Consumer Bankers Association President Richard Hunt and National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders President & CEO Tony Wilkinson, IFA today delivered a letter signed by 21 trade groups representing small business, retail and banking groups asking Congress:

"for an increase in SBA funding for FY 2012 above FY 2011 levels; funds to extend the loan guarantees for SBA's 7a; and funds to extend fee waivers for the 7a and 504 programs.”

Here's a link to the letter.
