This bill establishes additional requirements for bank mergers and acquisitions, including by requiring

  • approval from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for certain mergers involving a provider of consumer financial products,
  • financial regulators to determine that the public benefits of any merger outweigh the costs,
  • specified community reinvestment ratings, and
  • institutions to meet certain financial stability standards and stress testing.

Applicants for a bank merger must disclose specified communications regarding the proposed merger.

The bill provides citizens with standing to file a civil action to review a merger approval.
