Resolution Plans Required for Insured Depository Institutions

ICBA supports the FDIC's push for complete resolution plans and associated testing for banks with total consolidated assets at the $100 billion level and above utilizing a bridge depository institution approach that would give the FDIC adequate time to find an appropriate acquirer or multiple acquirers in an organized bid offering.

Letter to House Urging Support for SJRes 32 to Nullify 1071 Rule

On behalf of ICBA and the nearly 50,000 community bank locations we represent, I write to urge your support for S.J.Res.32, a Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB’s) Small Business Loan Application Data Collection Rule under Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Act.

S.J.Res.32 would nullify a rule that will create a chilling effect on the credit small businesses need to survive and prosper in a time of economic uncertainty. Notably, this important resolution passed the Senate on a strong bipartisan vote on October 18. ICBA and community banks urge all members of the House to vote YES when it comes to the House floor.

Request for Advance Notice of Fair Credit Reporting Act Proposal

On September 15, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB or the Bureau) unveiled potentially sweeping changes to the Fair Credit Reportng Act (FCRA) rules (Regulation V) when it issued its “Outline of Proposals and Alternatives Under Consideration for the Small Business Advisory Review Panel for Consumer Reportng Rulemaking.”

The undersigned trade associations urge the CFPB to issue an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) before it publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Regulation V. A rushed, inadequate rulemaking process raises the stakes for dramatic changes to the foundation of the American economy.
