Vernon, Texas Savings & Loan Opposes Proposed Rule / concerning Deposits


Carter, Kim, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The proposed adoption of a new rule affecting Oklahoma agencies of savings and loan associations based outside of Oklahoma was opposed Thursday before the Oklahoma Savings and Loan Board by Vernon Savings and Loan Association of Vernon, Texas.

The rule would deny the agency authority to receive deposits, although the savings and loan code in Oklahoma does give it the authority, said Leonard Gasperin, senior vice president of Vernon Savings & Loan, which operates an agency in Frederick.

The matter was tabled by the board, allowing the Oklahoma Bankers Association to submit written arguments in response to the opposition by the Vernon firm. The board will address the matter once again in late November or early December.

In addition, the rule would require the agency to clearly show it is an agency, rather than a branch of a savings institution, by conforming signage to display the name of the agent up front, then state the name of the affiliation.

"The public and potential depositors have a strong interest in knowing Vernon is affiliated with the agency," he said. "The potential customer might assume we are entrusting funds to the individualagent rather than the association.

Trevor Swett III, a Washington, D.C., attorney representing Vernon's agency in Frederick, said the proposed rule is a clear threat to the continued operation of the agency. …
