See Why NYS Senator James Sanders Condemns President Trump's Rescinding Of The Community Reinvestment Act

From The Office Of State Senator James Sanders



State Senator James Sanders Jr. today condemned President Trump’s proposal to revamp or rescind the Community Reinvestment Act, something that would be detrimental to low-income and working class families.  The CRA is legislation, which states that banks should lend a certain amount of money to people who live in the neighborhoods where the banks are located.

Prior to this legislation, redlining was a common practice. Banks literally drew a red line around neighborhoods that they did not want to lend to – minority and so-called “high risk” neighborhoods – places where people had the most need.

“I would suggest that those in need of a loan get one right away, before the protective regulations of the CRA all come crashing down,” Sanders said. “Banking systems are necessary, but we must examine how much is profit and how much is greed.”
