Reps. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Chief Deputy Whip and Vice-Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, and Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) visited Transaction Alley on Monday, August 22nd – meeting with Board Chairman Scott Meyerhoff, board member Barry McCarthy, board delegate Bob Skiba, and ATPC Executive Director H. West Richards at InComm for more than two hours, discussing the vibrant payments ecosystem in our state. This meeting was particularly important for two reasons. First, Rep. McHenry is co-chairing the Innovation Initiative along with his colleague Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) whose district includes Silicon Valley. In addition, this not only leveraged the ATPC’s relationship with the Congressman and his staff to meet again in Washington, D.C., but also further influence the Innovation Initiative policymakers to visit Atlanta.
