NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger, with several members of NAFCU’s lobbying team, met with high-ranking members of Congress yesterday to thank them for their attention to credit union issues and concerns.Berger and NAFCU’s lobbyists met with House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas; committee Ranking Member Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman and House Financial Services member Ed Royce, R-Calif.Under Hensarling’s leadership, the House Financial Services Committee has reported out several regulatory relief bills, including the NAFCU-backed H.R. 2769, which would require NCUA to “stop and study” its risk-based capital rule. During his remarks on the bill at markup in late September, Hensarling said NCUA’s RBC rule is a “solution in search of a problem.”The House Financial Services Committee has recently also reported out NAFCU-supported H.R. 1266, which would replace the CFPB director post with a bipartisan commission; and H.R. 957, which would transfer authority to appoint a CFPB inspector general from the Federal Reserve to the president. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
