house Bill H.R. 1679

Expediting Bank Holding Times for Check Deposits in American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands

Argument in favor

American Samoa’s exclusion from Regulation CC places a substantial financial burden on those living in American Samoa.

Argument opposed

American Samoa is a territory, not a state, so rules should be different. (Though in truth waiting 3 weeks for a check to clear seems nuts.)
