WASHINGTON, DC – February 28, 2020 – GrayRobinson’s government affairs and lobbying group released its weekly federal lobbying newsletter, The Golden Apple, reporting on the most recent issues, individuals, and discourse deemed fairest in Washington. The seven bills recently approved by the House Financial Services Committee (HFSC) are among the topics discussed this week, along with the report by the FDIC that revealed lower net interest income and higher expenses led to a decline in the banking industry’s overall net income in 2019. The “Confirmations, nominations, departures, etc.” section announces that Representative Ralph Abraham (R-LA) will not run for reelection this year. “Next Week in Washington” and “The Ellis Insight” close up the newsletter.
