Web content accessibility concerns for websites
September 18, 2016
Monday, OBA President and CEO Roger Beverage participated in a conference call with the ABA and some of his colleagues across the country. A Pittsburg law firm, Carlson Lynch Sweet, Kilpela and Carlson, has notified at least seven banks across the country (and it will be more than that soon) that their websites do not comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG - 2).
The issue is whether your website has made accommodations to allow visually impaired persons to ldquo;read rdquo; what is on your site. The lawsuits that have been ndash; and will be ndash; filed targeting banks of all sizes are trying to force banks to settle these claims, which include costs and attorney fees.
This issue has already jumped up and bitten restaurant owners and others costing them a great deal of time and money. In one case, a Colorado company incurred a $4,000 penalty and more than $100,000 in attorney fees because it was not in compliance with the statutory provisions.pp

OBA president to Congress: Over-regulation harms small banks, communitiesExcessive regulation is making it more difficult for the nation's community banks to aid their customers, particularly in small, rural communities, according to testimony on Thursday from the Oklahoma Bankers Association's president and CEO to the U.S. House Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access.
OBA President and CEO Roger Beverage told the subcommittee a community bank is much more than simply a bank to residents of small and rural communities and the excessive regulations currently being placed on the industry, particularly from the Dodd-Frank Act, are forcing these community banks to merge with larger ones or simple shutter their doors.
