BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Tenacity seems to be Alabama State Democratic Representative William Parker’s middle name. Parker has vowed to re-introduce his proposal to limit the ATM fees banks charge non-customers to $1 per transaction or 50 cents each for the surcharge and interchange fee, according to the Birmingham News.

Parker seems to have retaliated by opposing an Alabama Bankers Association-backed bill that would have reduced the foreclosure redemption period, which is the time owners have to pay off a loan and reclaim their property, from one year to six months. Now the bankers seem willing to discuss the matter with Parker in hopes of reaching a compromise.
