Too Small to Succeed?Posted by Staff on January 04, 2016

The report specifically warned of the consequences of the regulatory burden on small banks saying:
“Smaller community banks appear to have a valid concern that their compliance burden is rising and the playing field is becoming more uneven.”
The report went on to say:
“Regulatory oversight should match the level of risk an institution poses to the financial system and economy at large. Otherwise, more banks may become too small to succeed.”
Translation? One-size-fits-all regulations do not work. And what’s worse is that it’s hurting community banks and credit unions and the hardworking Americans on Main Street who rely on them.
The Financial Services Committee is working to change this. In 2015, 28 of our Committee bills were signed into law, including 6 dealing with Dodd-Frank. In 2016, we’ll be working to present visionary proposals laying out a better vision for financial reform – bold ideas that promote more opportunities for low and moderate-income Americans, protect taxpayers from future Wall Street bailouts, and empower families and individuals to achieve financial independence.
