FDIC Holds Hearings on CRA Reform

Yesterday, the FDIC held hearings in Arlington, VA as part of a four-day event to discuss reforming the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).  The CRA was created in 1977 to address discriminatory lending practices and redlining and to encourage commercial banks to meet the needs of all borrowers in their communities.  Lisa Hall, our Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer, participated in the hearings that focused on the CRA and Community Development.  Click on the links below to read the testimonies from Lisa and other industry leaders in Community Development.
