“Our community bankers and housing leaders are our eyes and ears on the ground,” Congressman Gonzalez said. “Connecting with these individuals has given me a clearer picture of the local impact of what we have already done in the banking and housing space and where we need to go. I look forward to working with each and every one of them to continue building a brighter future for South Texans from all walks of life.”
The Dallas Federal Home Loan Bank, in conjunction with the office of Congressman Gonzalez, hosted the roundtable in downtown McAllen. The discussion focused on the effects of banking regulation on independent and community banks’ ability to foster housing lending.
