Note: The Competitive Equality Banking Act of 1987 was largely amendatory. Most of the free-standing provisions of such Act, while still in effect, did not have a permanent or long-term application and therefore are not shown in this compilation. Title Vi, the Expedited Funds Availabilty Act, appears under its own heading in this compilation.
