Senate GOP Tweets And Then Deletes Criticism Of Marijuana Banking Provision In House COVID Bill

The Senate Republican Conference (SRC) tweeted—and then promptly deleted—a post on Tuesday that characterized a marijuana banking provision of a new coronavirus relief bill filed by House leadership as a “political-pipe-dream.” Shortly after the House unveiled its COVID-19 legislation, which included language that would protect banks from being penalized by federal regulators for working with cannabis businesses, the SRC account began listing items in the legislation that it said Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had inserted that were not germane. “THIS is what trying to take advantage of a crisis looks like.
