'Roll to Repeal' campaign focuses on community banks

Altoona, Blair County, Pa. - Members of the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers are traveling across the state to spread a message about community banks. 

Nick Defrancesco and Troy Peters stopped at the Altoona First Savings Bank in Altoona. 

They say the Dodd Frank Act has decimated the community bank industry. 

The act is a series of reforms meant to prevent financial crisis.

"It's important for us to fight for our customers," said Chairman Troy Peters.  "That's what we're really driven by not the profits on Wall Street but the profits of our main streets across America."

The "Roll for Repeal" campaign plans to make 10 trips across Pennsylvania to community banks. 

This is the second day of their first trip.
