Federal banking agencies will hold an outreach meeting on February 4, 2015, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as part of their regulatory review under the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 (EGRPRA). This will be the second outreach meeting that the OCC, FDIC, Board of Governors and the Federal Reserve have held throughout the country.
The meeting will feature panel presentations by industry participants and consumer and community groups. It also provides an opportunity for interested persons to present their views on any of the 12 categories of regulations listed in a June 2014 Federal Register notice that started the EGRPRA public comment process. Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry, Governor Jerome H. Powell, and Chairman Martin J. Gruenberg are scheduled to attend the meeting in Dallas. In addition, Commissioner of the Texas Banking Department Charles G. Cooper will attend, and state banking regulators are invited to participate through the State Liaison Committee of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC).
The agencies also plan to hold an outreach meeting focused on rural banks. These meetings may be viewed live online at http://egrpra.ffiec.gov/.
