Ohio Banks: Hitting the Interstate Acquisition Road

Changes in state banking laws have allowed interstate banking to spread rapidly throughout the United States during the past two years. As the process continues, and the geographic restraints on the banking industry fall away, there is increasing pressure for banks, particularly medium and large institutions, to move into new markets, and to compete on a regional, or even a national scale for retail deposits.

The views authors express in Economic Commentary are theirs and not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland or the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The series editor is Tasia Hane. This paper and its data are subject to revision; please visit for updates.
