A bill to protect banks that service state-legal marijuana businesses could get a fair shot of advancing through the Senate next year, even if Republicans maintain control of the chamber. While it remains to be seen if Democrats will be able to secure enough seats to reclaim the Senate in two Georgia runoffs in January, the GOP member expected to take the helm of the Banking Committee if his party maintains a majority said recently that he’s open to the modest reform. “I am open to working with my colleagues on how we could enable businesses that are operating legally in their respective states to be able to have ordinary banking services,” he said. “I think that’s something we should work on.”
