Interstate Banking: Its Impact on Ohio Banks

Interstate banking is rapidly becoming a marketplace reality. The pace of change is so rapid that 1985 may be a watershed in eliminating interstate banking barriers. No state permitted interstate banking until 1975. Today, 27 states allow some type of out-of-state entry by commercial banks.
