OBL Supports Efforts to Reopen Ohio Economy


COLUMBUS - The Ohio Bankers League applauds the efforts of the DeWine Administration to begin reopening Ohio’s economy. Ohioans are ready to get back to work and relaunch our economy.


“Throughout this crisis, the OBL and its 170-plus member banks have been open for business to help individuals and businesses impacted by this health crisis. We applaud the work the Administration is doing to safely reopen our state’s economy,” said OBL Chairman Paul Thompson. “We appreciate the transparency and continuing dialogue between the Administration, the Ohio Bankers League and the banking industry during the extraordinary difficulties we face.”


As has been the case throughout this crisis, Ohioans are encouraged to contact their bank as early as possible to discuss financial difficulties. To ensure the safety of customers and bank employees, customers may be asked to briefly remove masks to identify themselves.
