On August 29, 2018, Greg M. Ohlendorf, President and CEO of First Community Bank and Trust in Beecher, and David Schroeder, Senior Vice President of Federal Governmental Relations of the Community Bankers Association of Illinois, met with Congresswoman Robin Kelly (D-02) and Matthew McMurray (Legislative Assistant) to discuss a variety of topics of interest to FCB&T and the communities it serves. Ohlendorf and Schroeder began the meeting by expressing their honest disappointment with Congresswoman Kelly for not voting in favor of recent legislation for long-overdue, well-deserved and meaningful regulatory relief that will benefit FCB&T including a simplification of community bank capital rules, an exemption from the new HMDA data collection rules, and automatic “qualified mortgage” status for real estate loans held in the bank’s portfolio. Despite this disappointment, Ohlendorf and Schroeder stated a sincere willingness to work with Congresswoman Kelly going forward
