Regulatory Advocacy

Working Together to Reduce Regulatory Burdens
Regulatory Advocacy brings the voice of credit unions to federal and state regulators. Our Regulatory Advocacy staff is committed to establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with regulators to ensure credit unions’ issues and concerns are heard.

The Regulatory Advocacy area keeps you informed of the latest proposed rules and regulations, their potential impact on credit unions, and provides comments to regulatory agencies to help shape regulations and lessen the compliance burden. 

The Leagues have launched an RBC2-dedicated webpage, containing the latest updates, analysis, and communications about how RBC2 may impact your credit union.

We URGENTLY need ALL credit unions to participate in an extremely important survey.
The Leagues are conducting a survey to obtain information about credit unions’ overdraft and courtesy pay programs. The survey results will be shared with the CFPB and provide them with fact based information to help inform their rulemaking and prove what we know to be true, credit unions are the best choice for consumers.

The survey was sent on Monday, November 3, 2014 to all member CEOs whose credit unions offer checking accounts. Please look for your email and complete the survey by Friday, November 21, 2014.

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?

Latest Proposal Updates, Analysis
The revised risk-based capital proposal (RBC2) is drumming up a lot of discussion among credit union leaders. At first look, the proposal includes many substantial and positive changes, but there is still work to be done and debates to be had, such as whether the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has the legal authority to implement a two-tier system, and whether the costs for implementation are worth the benefit.

To help you keep up with the conversation, the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues launched an RBC2-dedicated webpage, containing the latest updates, analysis, and communications, and how this rule may impact your credit union.
