Additionally, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued a safe harbor list of countries (Aruba, Brazil, China, Ethiopia, and Libya) that qualify for an exception in subpart B of Regulation E, which implements the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, and published this list on its website. The current list is unchanged from the prior release in the Federal Register. The bureau intends to revise the list periodically.

NCUA: FLOOD INSURANCE RULE
updated 06/23/15 10:12 AM
Also, Overdrafts Still Regulatory Priority
Five federal regulatory agencies including the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), have approved a final rule that modifies the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIAA). The final rule applies to loans secured by properties located in special flood hazard areas and implements provisions related to the escrowing of flood insurance payments and the exemption of some detached structures from the mandatory flood insurance purchase requirement. The final rule also implements provisions in the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 (the Biggert-Waters Act) relating to the force placement of flood insurance.
