Faucette and Hudson discussed the material differences in the degree of regulatory scrutiny given to banks with a high supervisory rating and the banks not enjoying a high rating. Both Mr. Faucette and Mr. Hudson pointed out the significant increase in banks enjoying a high rating since the economy turned around and the relative lack of supervisory involvement in their compensation practices.
