Commissioner Thompson Attends OBA Senators Summit
The Oklahoma Bankers Association recently hosted a meeting with Senator James Lankford to discuss various banking-related topics and answering questions. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho, chairman of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee) also Skyped in to take some questions from the gathered bankers.
Commissioner Mick Thompson used the meeting as an opportunity to impress upon the Senators that the appointments to the the FDIC and Federal Reserve Boards - both of which have multiple current vacancies - will have significant impacts on the community banking industry. Thompson also raised the point that President Trump could alleviate current regulatory burdens by issuing an Executive Order allowing regional offices of the FDIC and Federal Reserve to make regulatory decisions instead of being controlled by Washington, D.C.
