Sen. Rounds Reintroduces Tailored Regulation Bill

Posted on 2/15/2017

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) yesterday reintroduced the Senate version of the TAILOR Act (S. 366), which would require financial regulators to consider bank risk profiles and business models when taking regulatory actions.

In addition to requiring a tailored approach for future rulemakings, Rounds' bill would require a review of regulations issued in the past seven years and a report on how they might be better tailored. Regulators would be required to state in notices of proposed rulemaking how they applied the TAILOR Act.

Championed by Rounds and Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO-3) in the 114th Congress, the bipartisan TAILOR Act cleared the House Financial Services Committee earlier this year. A new House version of the bill is expected to be introduced soon.

"South Dakota is home to some of the smallest and the largest banks in the world, with wide variations in their business models," said Curt Everson, president and CEO of the South Dakota Bankers Association. "Bankers from those institutions agree that today's one-size-fits-all regulatory scheme doesn't make sense. We applaud Sen. Rounds for introducing the TAILOR Act to start the conversation about matching bank regulation to risk."
