The Keelen Group has been hard at work since the Seller Finance Capitol Hill Fly-In on July 18th and 19th. Currently, we have 20 co-sponsors signed onto HR 1360, which is an increase of thirteen since July. Keelen Group Staff has taken meetings with many members of Congress and applicable members of the House Financial Services Committee.
Furthermore, the real rock stars are Bob Repass and Jeff Watson. During the month of October, Bob and Jeff executed an impressive 25 meetings promoting HR 1360. Bob is responsible for getting Rep. John Ratcliffe (TX-4), Rep. Bob Gibbs (OH-7), and Rep. Bob Latta (OH-5). Jeff should be applauded for landing Rep. Dave Joyce (OH-14). We expect many more members to agree to sign onto the Bill in the coming weeks due to their efforts.
Seller Finance Coalition Leadership and The Keelen Group will be at it again tackling a small fly-in during March or April 2018. At that point, we hope the House Financial Services Committee will move on our bill. Please continue to call and write your members of Congress in hopes of gaining support for the Bill.
