OHIO ADOPTS THE UNIFORM STATE TEST & THE USE OF FEDERAL CALL REPORTS
On June 16, 2014, Governor Kasich signed House Bill 483. OMBA was able to insert language in the bill that allows Ohio to move to the Uniform State Test (UST) for mortgage loan originators (MLOs), that has been developed by the National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) and the State Regulatory Registry , LLC (SRR). To date, the UST has been adopted by 36 states, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia. House Bill 483 also allows non-depository lenders to submit federal call reports, in lieu of separate state financial reports. The Department of Commerce Division of Financial Institutions has announced the implementation of both the UST and the use of Federal Call Reports will be effective September 15, 2014.
