OCC Allows National Bank Offices in Florida to Close if Necessary

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has issued a proclamation allowing national bank offices to close during the week of November 17, 2003, if events related to the Ministerial Meeting of the Free Trade Area of the Americas in Miami, Florida, should necessitate such action.

In issuing the proclamation, Comptroller of the Currency John D. Hawke, Jr. said he expects that only those bank offices directly affected by these conditions will close. Those offices should make every effort to reopen as quickly as possible to address the banking needs of their customers, he added.
