WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#wolterskluwer–Regulatory compliance experts from Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions will offer insights on fair lending issues and Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) modernization at the Consumer Bankers Association’s national conference, CBA LIVE 2020, in a virtual conference on September 30-October 1.

They will share a forecast of CRA modernization efforts by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and Federal Reserve Board (FRB). The FRB issued for public comment on September 21 an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) requesting input on issues relating to the Board’s regulations and related supervisory framework that implement the CRA. The discussion will include a look at community groups’ assessments of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s CRA final rule and what might be ahead from the FRB and the FDIC.
