Sends Letter to NCUA
Senator Dean Heller, R-NV, has written a letter to the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) on behalf of the Nevada Credit Union League stating his concerns with the agency’s risk-based capital proposal.
Heller is the most recent to raise concerns from the Senate Banking Committee.
“I am concerned the proposed rule would establish a new risk-based requirement for a credit union to be considered well-capitalized,” Heller states. “The risk weights in the proposed rule may be unduly burdensome on credit unions and reduce the availability or affordability of loan products, and restrict credit to citizens in Nevada.”
Heller also stated his concern that the NCUA hasn’t “adequately explained” the need for the risk-based capital proposal, adding that he would like the agency to “provide clear guidance on how credit unions should plan for supervision in the future,” with plenty of time to adjust and comply with any new rules.
