Kutak Rock attorney Jeff Makovicka authored the article “Community Reinvestment Act Modernization: A Touch Up or a Total Overhaul?" for the September/October 2018 issue of Nebraska Banker.
In the article Makovicka explains that currently there are a number of possible reforms to the existing Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) framework, and whether regulators implement a significant overhaul or just a touch-up remains to be seen. Makovicka advises banks to submit comments to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).The article appears as the Counselor's Corner feature in Nebraska Banker and can be read in its entirety here.
