Cannabis banking bill reintroduced in US Senate
Thursday, Apr 11, 2019

The lead sponsors are Jeff Merkley, an Oregon Democrat, and Cory Gardner, a Colorado Republican.

A House panel recently advanced its version of the SAFE Banking Act, a landmark development for a cannabis industry seeking to tap traditional sources of capital and wean itself from cash-only transactions that can cause security problems.

The full House vote on the act is expected as soon as June.
