On November 29, two Subcommittees of the House Financial Services Committee held a joint hearing regarding the federal banking agency proposals to implement the Basel III international regulatory capital accords. As with a Senate hearing on the same topic last week, committee members focused bipartisan attention on the proposals’ potential impact on community banks and insurance companies that are holders of depository institutions. The committee also explored the interplay between the Basel III proposals and the pending rules to set forth the “qualified mortgage” standard and the “qualified residential mortgage” standard. The regulators promised lawmakers that they would carefully consider the concerns of community bankers. The regulators did not provide a timeline for their final rulemaking.
