Bernanke wants small bank oversight

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is

making a fresh pitch for the Fed to retain its oversight of small

banks.

Bernanke says that what the Fed learns from overseeing those

banks helps it assess the overall health of the entire U.S.

financial system.

The Fed chief is weighing in against a Senate proposal that

would scale back the Fed's banking duties.

Bernanke's remarks came in a speech Saturday at the Independent

Community Bankers of America's meeting in Orlando, Fla.
