The House Financial Services Committee today is scheduled to mark up a slate of ICBA-advocated bills:

  • Rep. Andy Barr’s (R-Ky.) Promoting Access to Capital in Underbanked Communities Act of 2023 (H.R. 758), which would provide more regulatory, capital, and lending flexibility to facilitate the creation of de novo banks.

  • The CDFI Fund Transparency Act (H.R. 3161), introduced by Reps. John Rose (R-Tenn.) and Brittany Pettersen (D-Colo.) to require annual Treasury Department testimony on CDFI Fund operations.

  • Barr’s Bank Resilience and Regulatory Improvement Act (H.R. 8337), which would raise the asset exemption thresholds of five burdensome regulatory provisions.

  • Barr’s Bank Supervision Appeals Improvement Act (H.R. 8264) to create a workable appeals process for bank examinations.

  • The Small Bank Holding Company Relief Act of 2023 (H.R. 4346), Rep. Alex Mooney’s (R-W.Va.) bill to raise the asset threshold to qualify as Small Bank Holding Companies from $3 billion to $10 billion to help community banks raise capital.

  • Barr’s Rectifying UDAAP Act (H.R. 6789), which would clarify and balance the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s authority to oversee unfair, deceptive, and abusive acts and practices.

  • The Small Lenders Exempt from New Data and Excessive Reporting Act (H.R. 1806), Rep. French Hill’s (R-Ark.) bill to expand exemptions from the CFPB’s 1071 rule and extend the rule’s compliance deadline.

  • The Bank Loan Privacy Act (H.R. 1810) from Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.), which would require the CFPB to conduct a rulemaking on financial institution and credit applicant data it plans to publish under the 1071 rule.
