HIGHLIGHTS 

SAFE BANKING ACT OMITTED FROM THE NATIONAL DEFENCE AUTHORISATION ACT

Back in September, the SAFE Banking Act was passed by the House in its initial version within the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) with language to protect banks that work with state-legal cannabis businesses.
