Committee members heard testimony from representatives of state financial services regulator associations on the merging of banks, securities firms and insurance companies. They testified about the risks, such as financial insecurity,and benefits, such as increased competition, of such mergers, which would bring the banking industry more in line with current business and financial practices.
