Welcome to the Legislative and Legal Affairs area of the CSBS website.
CSBS is the professional association of state officials responsible for chartering, regulating and supervising the nation's state-chartered banks and state-licensed branches and agencies of foreign banks. CSBS is the only national organization dedicated to advancing our dual system of bank regulation.
The CSBS Legislative Affairs group is responsible for advocating on behalf of the state banking system on Capitol Hill, among federal regulatory agencies on legislative issues, and in the courts. As the central clearinghouse for information on federal legislation and litigation affecting the state banking system, the Legislative Affairs group is available to answer inquiries about the system from members Congress and Senators, Congressional and Senate staff, the public, and the financial services industry.
