McHenry, Scott ask Fed for oversight info of failed banks
House Financial Services Committee Chairman Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., and Senate Banking Committee Ranking Member Tim Scott, R-S.C., wrote to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell Monday requesting that the Fed provide insights into its supervision of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.
In the letter, McHenry and Scott said their “oversight responsibilities to the American people require that we evaluate the root causes of these bank failures as well as the failures of U.S. regulatory agencies to prevent these collapses from occurring.”
They indicated they are interested in “obtaining full information about what appears to be glaring bank mismanagement, fundamental lack of prudence in bank risk and balance sheet management, and regulators’ lack of basic supervision and enforcement of safety and soundness rules, regulations, and principles” and asked for:
- a comprehensive timeline of events on the Fed’s lending, supervisory, and examination activity for the past two years related to the banks;
- a comprehensive timeline of events to support invoking the Systemic Risk Exception for the two banks; and
- the names and titles of all officials and employees of the Fed involved in any capacity related to the previous points.
McHenry announced last week that the House Financial Services Committee will hold a hearing on the bank failures March 29. He and Ranking Member Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) calling on the office to begin a study and an investigation into the Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank collapses.
NAFCU, as well as the NCUA, has continued to reiterate that these were not systemic issues and that the credit union industry remains strong.

Anyone that has been doing this for a while forms a network of trusted advisors and we all go to each other anytime we come across some new or complex case. [02:50] Scams have always been around but the emergence of AI has made them far more sophisticated than we have ever seen before. [05:55] Person-to-person payment apps like Zelle, Venmo, and CashApp are not protected like debit and credit cards. [08:30] Every single time that new technology comes out that makes our lives better, fraudsters will find a way to exploit it. The current state of cyber fraud points credit unions in a lose-lose situation. [20:04] By identifying the information at one credit union and getting it out to others they are getting ahead of these threats. [22:19] Fraud Fusion Centers are critical. Formalize it and make it happen. Web NAFCU firstname.lastname@example.org America/New_York public
