Dear colleague,

I want to let you know about an important issue brewing in Washington that we need to act on: protecting debit swipe fee reform. Debit swipe fee reform first happened in 2010 when Congress passed legislation that protected businesses and consumers from unfair debit swipe fees.

But big banks are at it again. They’re lobbying Congress to allow banks to increase unfair debit card swipe fees by passing H.R.10, the Financial CHOICE Act of 2017.

Since 2010, businesses and consumers have saved billions. We can’t let banks go back to charging unfair debit swipe fees. Will you contact your members of Congress? Use this link to contact Congress now:

I urge you to stand with small businesses and consumers, and protect swipe fee reform. Don’t let the debit swipe fee reform repeal remain in H.R.10, the Financial CHOICE Act.
