Senate Banking Committee Passes Regulatory Relief Bill
In the five years since Congress passed Dodd-Frank, CBA member banks have undergone significant transformation in response to this legislation, while still meeting the needs of the American consumer and small business. As you all know, however, Dodd-Frank is not perfect. Now is the time for Congress to address the unintended consequences of the one-size-fits-all legislation and determine if it is best serving the consumers it was intended to protect. To these ends, we are pleased the Senate Banking Committee passed a regulatory relief bill this week. Since it is only Memorial Day, we remain optimistic a bipartisan consensus can be achieved in the coming months—doing so is obviously in the best interest of consumers.
CFPB, DOJ Step Up Interest in Redlining
In case you missed it, the Department of Justice and CFPB are using a new approach to screen for redlining. This new method—as highlighted at CBA LIVE 2015—has both agencies comparing banks with their peers rather than just internally. We will update you as this new process unfolds.
