French Hill Hosts Bankers Meeting

French Hill

Representative French Hill hosted an all-day discussion Monday at the local offices of the Arkansas Bankers Association to hear concerns about key legislative and regulatory issues facing Arkansas’ financial and banking community.

Hill, a former Little Rock banking executive and ranking Republican member of the House Committee on Financial Services, said he held the Arkansas Bankers roundtable so he could meet with Arkansas bankers still struggling to comply with so-called Dodd-Frank regulations put in place following the Great Recession.

“As many of you have heard me say before, community banks are bearing the brunt of Dodd-Frank Act even though they did not cause or contribute to the 2008 crisis,” Hill said during his opening remarks at Monday’s event co-sponsored by the ABA, the Arkansas Community Bankers Association and the Kroll Bond Rating Agency.     MORE
