On Thursday, June 23rd, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs will hold a hearing entitled “Bank Capital and Liquidity Regulation Part II: Industry Perspectives.” The witnesses scheduled to testify are Ms. Rebeca Romero Rainey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Centinel Bank of Taos (on behalf of the Independent Community Bankers of America); The Honorable Wayne A. Abernathy, Executive Vice President, Financial Institutions Policy and Regulatory Affairs, American Bankers Association; The Honorable Greg Baer, President, The Clearing House Association and Executive Vice President and General Counsel, The Clearing House Payments Company; and Ms. Jennifer Taub, Professor of Law, Vermont Law School.

The hearing will likely touch on a number of topics, including recent U.S. and global rulemakings on the liquidity coverage ratio and capital requirements set forth by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
