Since the passage of the National Banking Act of 1933, the right of banks to branch has been determined by state law. Prior to the passage of the Act, inconsistencies between federal and state legislation made the controversy over branch banking an issue of national prominence. The change in 1933 removed the disharmonies between state and federal law by allowing state law to be the determining one with respect to the right of banks to branch. With the matter left in the hands of individual states, the controversy over branch banking has faded as a vital issue of national banking policy and lost the heated and excited tone of the 1920’s and early 1930’s.
