We are joined by Kenneth Thomas, who is widely-viewed as the nation’s leading CRA expert and has advised federal regulators on CRA reform. After reviewing CRA’s origins and previous reforms, Ken shares his views on the current OCC/FDIC proposed changes, including why reform is a White House priority, differences in perspectives among CRA regulators, the proposal’s deposit-based approach to assessment areas and performance standards for larger banks, using a phased-in approach to reform, and the Presidential election’s impact on reform.
