In Case You Missed It... CSBS Highlights from May

May was a busy month for financial regulation, and state regulators achieved several important goals and milestones:

Elections and Appointments

  • State regulators elected Mississippi Commissioner Charlotte Corley to be Chair of CSBS.
  • Tennessee's Greg Gonzales and Virginia's Joe Face were appointed to the FFIEC State Liaison Committee, a voting member of the FFIEC that represents states' interests while working with the federal government.
  • The Senate approved Jelena McWilliams to lead the FDIC. CSBS endorsed McWilliams earlier this year.

Legislative Progress and Achievements

  • CSBS came out in strong opposition to legislation that would prevent states from supervising student loans and protecting students from financial abuse. 
  • CSBS applauded Congress for passing into law S. 2155, legislation that includes several provisions backed by state regulators.

CSBS Projects

  • Eastern Kentucky University won the 2018 CSBS Community Bank Case Study Competition. In their submission, Eastern Kentucky students interviewed Kentucky Commissioner Charles Vice.
  • CSBS announced it will provide the most sweeping cybersecurity training program in state regulators' history.
