We are a rural 40 million bank in Saunders County, Nebraska, with a 104 year 
old charter and over 100 years experience in our loan officers.  The
regulation that requires us to obtain an outside/certified appraisal on
loans of $250,000 and more is out of date and a burden.  The $250,000
threshold has been the same since the regulation was put on the books many
years ago with no allowance for inflation.  It requires us to spend $1000 to
$1500 on a farm appraisal to tell us less than what we knew about the value
of the land at the time the loan application was received.
