State Banking Board Approves Reduction in 2020 Assessments

In furtherance of the “Top Ten State” initiatives pursued by Governor Kevin Stitt, State Bank Commissioner Mick Thompson announced this week that the Oklahoma State Banking Board approved the Commissioner’s recommendation to discount the assessments paid by Oklahoma state-chartered banks.  This year’s discount is 20% for each bank with assets less than $1 billion and 10% for each bank with assets more than $1 billion. The Commissioner presented a proposed agency budget to the Board that reflected how the Department can continue its efficient operation with the discount to assessments.

When combined with previous reductions, Oklahoma state-chartered banks have saved over $14 million in assessments during the past nine years.  The Banking Department has used the assessment discount as both an opportunity to reduce regulatory burden on state-chartered banks as well as an endorsement of Governor Stitt’s fiscal responsibility initiatives for state agencies.
