President's Message


The Bottom Line

Howard Headlee, President, Utah Bankers Association

"From this point forward, bankers can’t look at the political process the same.

Everything changed the moment the President of the United States of America nominated Saule Omarova to be the top banking regulator. This is a person who is vocal about wanting to eliminate the U.S. Banking system as we know it. Some found her views to be shocking, but for me, they confirmed everything I’ve been watching for the last 15 years or so.  The fact is, she is NOT the only person inside the beltway that wants to eliminate banks."
