Support regulatory relief effort

July 16, 2014

We're asking all bankers in Oklahoma to help us convince their congressman to co-sponsor three bills that have been moved to the House floor for consideration yet this year.

The first bill listed would treat “portfolio” mortgage loans as being compliant with the new Ability to Repay (ATR) regulations. The second bill (H.R. 4521) would exempt banks under $10 billion in total assets from the escrow requirements of Dodd-Frank. The third bill (H.R. 4466) would require federal banking regulators to review and reconcile existing regulations that may be in conflict with or duplicative of new rules being promulgated by the banking agencies.

The ABA has made it easy to send a letter by going to the following website and following the simple instructions to send a letter by email by clicking here.
