The state banking department has announced a 45% cut in its fourth-fiscal-quarter assessment on state-chartered banks and foreign bank agencies in Texas.

State regulators said the cut, which should save the affected banks and agencies more than $900,000, comes because they've been able to predict their expenses more accurately for new budgets. The department is barred by law from collecting more from banks than it costs to operate the agency.
