Our second guest is Jason Brewer, Executive Vice President, Communications & State Affairs RILA he will discuss and offer insight into the CHOICE Act, swipe fee reform and how you can voice your concerns regarding swipe fee legislation with your elected officials.  Mr.  Brewer leads RILA’s state affairs and grassroots advocacy campaigns, in addition to managing the organization’s strategic communications efforts. Brewer works closely with our partners at the state level to ensure retailers’ issue priorities are well-represented and communicated effectively to policymakers.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) recently responded to the House Financial Services Committee’s introduction of the CHOICE Act, legislation that would roll back many of the financial reforms passed in the wake of the financial meltdown in 2008. Retailers have vowed to fight any financial reform bill that repeals swipe fee reform, bipartisan legislation passed in 2010 that stopped large banks and card networks from charging merchants exorbitant fees on debit card transactions.

The CHOICE Act gives the largest banks and card networks a green light to charge billions in higher fees from every business in America that accepts debit cards. Repealing swipe fee reform is a billion-dollar giveaway to banks that are generating record profits and passing out record bonuses; it’s a poison pill for any bipartisan effort to enact meaningful financial reform. Higher fees from banks would undoubtedly mean higher prices for consumers. Retailers believe repealing swipe fee reform is bad for the economy and bad for America. Americans agree. For more information go to: www.rila.com
