Are we one step closer to being able to access banks?

The republican-controlled Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs scheduled a meeting to review the Secure And Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act. This was considered a long-shot not too long ago. In a sign that federal legalization might be on the horizon, lawmakers are finally paving the way toward access to financial services for cannabis business owners.

How would it affect your individual business?
