IBAT’s goal is to provide a diversity of opinions and viewpoints
about national banking news. Some news articles do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the Independent Bankers Association of Texas. ICBA President and CEO Cam Fine wrote in his latest blog post that while Wall Street supporters are seeking to maintain the status quo in financial regulation, community bankers want real reform. “Community bankers cannot afford to stand by silently,” Fine wrote in Finer Points. “If no financial reform bill passes, community bankers will continue to see their franchise values erode, Wall Street’s profits rise and the mega firms get even bigger and more bulletproof.”
ICBA also offers a new bullet-point fact sheet with key ICBA positions on financial reform issues and why maintaining the status quo will harm the nation’s community banks. Read Finer Points. Read ICBA Fact Sheet.
