- The banking agencies have issued the attached 2005 host state loan-to-deposit ratios used to determine compliance with Section 109 of the Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act. These ratios update information published on August 26, 2004.
- Section 109 prohibits any bank from establishing or acquiring a branch outside its home state primarily for the purpose of deposit production. This prohibition applies to any bank branch controlled by an out-of-state bank holding company.
- As part of the test for compliance with Section 109, a bank’s statewide loan-to-deposit ratio is compared to the appropriate host state loan-to deposit ratio.
