$177 Million in SBA Loans for Upstate NY
SBA Names Top Southern Tier Lenders for Fiscal Year 2018

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK

Small businesses in Upstate New York are accessing the affordable capital they need to start and expand with SBA-backed loans,” said SBA Syracuse District Director Bernard J. Paprocki.

Paprocki also announced the most active lenders in the Southern Tier region for the recently ended federal fiscal year 2018. M&T Bank, Five Star Bank, and Tioga State Bank had the highest number of 7(a) approvals in their respective categories based on asset size.

For the twelfth year in a row, M&T Bank topped all large commercial banks in the Southern Tier and the entire 34-county Syracuse District. This year M&T Bank assisted small businesses in Southern Tier with 33 loans at a value of $3.5 million and district-wide with 102 loans totaling $7.8 million.

Five Star Bank was the most active large community lender in the Southern Tier for the fourth year in a row, with 20 loans valued at $723,800.

For the second year in a row, Tioga State Bank ranked the top small community lender in the Southern Tier with five approvals worth $409,400.

“Strong relationships with our lending partners and streamlined application processes will continue to help more Southern Tier entrepreneurs use SBA financing to create jobs and invest in their businesses and communities,” noted Paprocki.

Although SBA does not make direct loans to small business, the agency’s use of its guaranty authority enables commercial lenders to make loans to small businesses they would otherwise not have made. The 7(a) loan program is the most widely used access to capital SBA program, with flexible use of proceeds and loan maximum of $5 million. The 504 program offers long-term, fixed-rate financing for major assets such as land, building and equipment with loan maximum of $5 million. The SBA Southern Tier region covers the following counties: Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins.

ICBA Testifies on Behalf of Community Bank Regulatory Relief

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) today testified before the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit on behalf of legislation to establish a more efficient financial regulatory regime. Robert Fisher, president and CEO of Tioga State Bank in Spencer, N.Y., expressed ICBA’s support for several bills to promote tiered and proportionate community banking regulations that will strengthen local economic growth and job creation. “Community banks didn’t cause the financial crisis, and we should not bear the weight of overreaching regulation intended to address it,” Fisher said. “ICBA is strongly encouraged by recent, bipartisan momentum for community bank regulatory relief from both sides of the Capitol, and we are optimistic that meaningful relief will soon be signed into law.” The fifth-generation community banker advocated the following bills, which include provisions recommended in ICBA’s pro-growth Plan for Prosperity regulatory relief platform.

  • The Community Financial Institution Exemption Act (H.R. 1264), introduced by Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), would exempt community banks with less than $50 billion in assets from all prospective rules and regulations issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
  • The Home Mortgage Reporting Relief Act of 2017 (H.R. 4648), introduced by Reps. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) and Randy Hultgren (R-Ill.), would provide temporary enforcement relief from new Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data collection and reporting requirements and restrict the CFPB’s ability to make the new data publicly available.
  • The Community Bank Reporting Relief Act (H.R. 4725), also introduced by Rep. Hultgren, would provide for short-form call reports in the first and third quarters for banks with assets of less than $5 billion.
  • The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155), bipartisan legislation that has passed the Senate Banking Committee on a bipartisan vote, would provide robust community bank regulatory relief to strengthen economic growth and job creation.
  • ICBA thanks the sponsors of these pro-growth bills and urges lawmakers to take action on them for the benefit of local communities.

About ICBA The Independent Community Bankers of America®, the nation’s voice for more than 5,700 community banks of all sizes and charter types, is dedicated exclusively to representing the interests of the community banking industry and its membership through effective advocacy, best-in-class education and high-quality products and services.

Tioga State Bank Joins ICBA For Meeting with President Trump

White House meeting focuses on regulatory relief to ‘Make Community Banking Great Again’

Washington, D.C. (May 1, 2017)— Robert Fisher, President & CEO, Tioga State Bank joined more than 100 community bankers and the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) this week for a meeting with President Donald Trump and other top administration officials at the White House as part of the 2017 ICBA Capital Summit. In the meeting with President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, NEC Director Gary Cohn and Small Business Administration chief Linda McMahon, Trump said the administration is focused on addressing regulatory burdens to help community banks lend to small businesses. “Tioga State Bank was deeply honored to be invited to attend today’s historic meeting, where the president reiterated his support for community banking,” said Robert Fisher. “Tioga State Bank is proud to be in Washington this week to advocate on behalf of our industry so we can continue to serve our community and be a powerful job creator and economic engine right here in the Southern Tier of NY and Northern PA.” During the meeting community bankers presented President Trump with a red “Make Community Banking Great Again” cap. In attendance at the meeting were community bankers from ICBA’s Executive Committee, board of directors, Federal Delegate Board, and policy committees. More than 1,000 community bankers are in Washington this week for ICBA’s Capital Summit to discuss critical issues facing community banks and their communities, such as excessive regulatory burdens that affect their ability to serve their customers, make loans and create jobs. The industry’s solution to the regulatory burden problem—ICBA’s Plan for Prosperity—is a pro-growth platform to eliminate onerous and unnecessary regulatory burdens that inhibit lending and innovation. The summit features meetings this week with policymakers, remarks from speakers such as Secretary Mnuchin and House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), and the first-ever ICBA Future of Banking Symposium, which offers insights into the future of the rapidly changing community banking industry. “The nation’s community banks are dedicated to fostering local economic and job growth by serving the consumers and small businesses in their communities,” said ICBA Chairman Scott Heitkamp, president and CEO of ValueBank Texas in Corpus Christi, Texas. “Unfortunately, one-size-fits-all regulations are preventing community banks from lending and promoting prosperity at the local level. ICBA looks forward to continuing to work with President Trump, his administration and Congress to advance common-sense reforms that will help unleash the economic power of community banks.” More information about ICBA’s Capital Summit, Future of Banking Symposium, and Plan for Prosperity is available on the ICBA website.   About ICBA The Independent Community Bankers of America®, the nation’s voice for more than 5,800 community banks of all sizes and charter types, is dedicated exclusively to representing the interests of the community banking industry and its membership through effective advocacy, best-in-class education and high-quality products and services.
