The Wall Street Journal reported The Federal Reserve is expected next week to vote on measures to ease liquidity and capital rules for large U.S. banks, signing off on a plan that may lower regulatory costs for regional U.S. lenders under the $700 billion asset line.

According to the Journal, the Fed plans to divide large U.S. banks into four categories based on their size and other risk factors. Regional lenders would be either entirely free from certain capital and liquidity requirements or see those requirements reduced.
