During CEO roundtable discussions this summer, it was decided we must take a proactive approach regarding likely rulemaking by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on overdraft programs. Initiating the first step the Leagues conducted a survey in December 2014 to obtain information about credit unions’ overdraft and courtesy pay programs.
In January, California and Nevada credit union leaders met with the CFPB Assistant Director of Financial Institutions Dan Smith to share the survey results with the bureau and discuss concerns regarding the possible regulation of overdraft plans by the CFPB.

Integrated Mortgage Disclosures – Resources Available
Your League, CUNA, and the CFPB want to ensure you have the necessary information and resources to successfully implement the CFPB’s rule on Integrated Mortgage Disclosures under RESPA/TILA. The rule is effective Aug. 1, 2015.
In addition, we want to hear from you about any issues that may conflict with or impede implementation of the new disclosures, particularly after you have discussed implementation with your vendors and settlement service providers. Will they be ready?

The rule positions credit unions to offer more products and services to growing and expanding communities, and strengthens the dual-charter system. “Every credit union, regardless of charter, should submit a comment letter,” said Sharon Lindeman, vice president of regulatory advocacy for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues.
