S. 366 introduced to TAILOR regulations for traditional community banks

February 15, 2017

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) has introduced essentially the same bill he sponsored in the 114th Congress (S. 3153). The new bill, S. 366, would require federal regulatory agencies to take risk profiles and business models of institutions into account when crafting regulations.

Rounds is a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs.

“It is the first step in achieving a truly 'bifurcated' regulatory system by which traditional community banks are treated differently than their larger brethren when it comes to applicability of federal banking rules and regulations,” OBA President and CEO Roger Beverage said. 

S. 366 would also require a review of regulations issued in the past seven years and a report on how they might be better tailored. If the review finds regulations issued since 2010 do not conform to the TAILOR Act, the agency would be required to revise those regulations.
