STATEMENT BY DFS SUPERINTENDENT LINDA A. LACEWELL ON NEW YORK STATE-CHARTER ADVISORY BOARD EXTENSION:

“The State Charter Advisory Board is an essential voice to helping ensure that a thriving state-chartered banking system remains in communities across New York State, and I commend both the Governor and the Legislature for swiftly extending the authorization of the Board for an additional five years. The State Charter Advisory Board works with the Superintendent to facilitate promotion of the state banking system and provides a forum for exchanging views and discussing supervisory and regulatory developments. The Board is an important means to foster regular discussions with the industry and consumers concerning industry trends and other issues of concern, and DFS looks forward to continuing to work closely with all Board members.”
