Arguments for two amendments to S.B. 333, which allows officers going from depository to non-depository institutions to get a temporary license while they pass both a state and federal test for a non-deposition license, were heard last week and accepted without opposition, reporting the bill out unanimously, according to The Hannah Report and Gonwer. The first amendment prevents a “legal vacuum” and maintains the “current status quo,” ensuring statutory law on a kind of international funds transfers known as remittance transfers, the Gongwer article said. The second amendment would enable Ohio to regulate derivative transactions so that Ohio banks are on “equal footing with national banks and banks chartered by other states, which, due to changes in their laws, are able to continue to engage in risk-mitigating transactions,” the Gongwer article said.
