L-R: Reps. Ed Royce, R-CA, and Brad Sherman, D-CA
CONGRESSMEN CONCERNED OVER RBC RULES

Questions Arise During Hearing
Reps. Ed Royce, R-CA, and Brad Sherman, D-CA, questioned National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) General Counsel Mike McKenna on the effectiveness of the NCUA's proposed risk-based capital rule during a House Financial Services Committee hearing last week.

Royce voiced concern that the risk weights applied to residential mortgage loans and member business loans under the proposal do not reflect actual risk, nor are they comparable to the community bank system.

Sherman also showed concern during the hearing and questioned McKenna on the proposed rule's effectiveness.

The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has said the proposed rule could prove costly for many credit unions nationwide, forcing them to collectively increase capital levels by $7.3 billion to maintain current margins above the proposed "well capitalized" thresholds.

Credit unions are strongly encouraged to provide comments to the NCUA on this proposed rule at PowerComment or at the CUNA's Action Center. Please note the comment deadline is May 28.
