Subject: FW: Proposed Changes to Loan Classifications
Dear Sir or Madam:
I am opposed to the proposed changes to loan classifications for the following reasons:
1. The proposed system will be more complex and more burdensome on
the smaller institutions.
2. The regulators and the bankers have developed a common vocabulary and understanding
of terminology. I see no need to change our vocabulary and confuse everyone involved.
3. I question whether there is a big enough problem with the rating disparities to
require a completely new rating system.
4. Why should the proposal apply to all banks? Why not propose a
threshold of $1 billion or higher?
Robert J. Barnes, Chief Credit Officer
