Public Statements & Remarks

Statement of Concurrence by Commissioner Scott D. O’Malia on the Volcker Rule Treatment of Certain CDOs Backed Primarily by TruPS

    January 14, 2014

    I support the interim final rule adopted by the Commission and the OCC, Federal Reserve Board, FDIC, and SEC (“Agencies”). When an unintended consequence of a regulation is discovered, it is imperative that it be expeditiously corrected to avoid unintentional harm to affected parties. Broken rules must be fixed, and I applaud the work of the Agencies to quickly respond to the public’s concerns and comments regarding the holding of TruPS CDOs by community banks affected by the Volcker Rule.
