The Hill: Hensarling says he’s not holding talks on Senate banking bill

The Hill, March 13, 2018: Hensarling says he’s not holding talks on Senate banking bill

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said he’s not holding talks with key senators on making changes to a banking bill set to pass the Senate this week.

The Senate bill faces opposition from House conservatives who want the measure to include more input from the lower chamber.

K Street sources told The Hill that the bill faces a growing chance of dying in the House unless senators agree to go to a conference with the House.

House conservatives have long been skeptical of the Senate package, which they say doesn’t go far enough to rein in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
