How do You Feel about the Proposed SBA 7(a) Oversight Legislation?
Please answer our quick one minute poll. Results will be published next week.
(Poll Closes Tuesday at 3:00pm ET) Submit answers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you support the bill as presented?
Assume SBA’s 7(a) oversight fee increase is a fait accompli to the industry. How should it be paid for?
As proposed, Split Premiums over 108, 3 basis point portfolio fee
Entirely by a portfolio fee
Should banks with less than $1 billion in assets be exempt from the fee?
Should lenders with a small 7(a) portfolio, say less than $10 million or $20 million be exempt from the fee?
Should CDCs be exempt from the fee?
Should lenders who have a market share of greater than 1% ($235 million annually) be solely responsible for the fee?
Open-ended Response — Any additional comments?
For you policy wonks, we have transcribed yesterday’s hearing, and it can be accessed here.
Also, please note my stupid math mistake in yesterday’s report — 1% of $23.5 billion is $235 million, not $23 million!
Finally, feel free to join the discussion in Coleman’s LinkedIn Small Business Lending Group
Enjoy your long Memorial Day weekend!
