Alexander Votes Against Bill to “Turn Treasury Department into Our National Bank”

Posted on September 16, 2010

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on his vote against the Small Business Lending bill:

“While I support the bill’s tax incentives for America’s job-creating small businesses, I can’t support creating yet another lending fund that turns the Treasury Department into our national bank. The Senate majority has shut down what could have been a truly bipartisan bill by not allowing debate or Republican amendments.”
