Banking Agencies Reach Agreement on Basel II Implementation

Statement from Federal Reserve Board Governor Randall S. Kroszner:

We are working diligently to ensure that Basel II implementation in the United States is largely consistent with international approaches. Our forward momentum in developing a final Basel II rule will promote continued improvements in banks’ risk-management practices and maintain capital levels in the U.S. banking system that are appropriate and risk sensitive.
