Legislative, Policy & Regulatory Updates

Take Action: Ask Congress to Oppose Credit Union Charter Enhancement Legislation

Ask your Nebraska Congressional delegation to oppose H.R. 7003.

H.R. 7003 would allow credit unions to expand their field of membership by adding areas 10 miles or more from the nearest financial institution branch and low-income areas. However, the bill does not require credit unions to demonstrate that they are providing financial services to underserved individuals and businesses. The legislation also creates a loophole in credit union commercial lending restrictions by exempting loans to borrowers living or operating in an underserved area from the lending cap.

The NBA recently joined other state banking associations in a letter opposing H.R. 7003.

NBA Legislative Update - April 8

NBA Joins Letter to CFPB on Fees

The NBA and 50 state banking associations provided comments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) regarding fees charged by financial services providers. The letter provided evidence that the market for consumer financial services is competitive and refuted the CFPB's assertion that institutions charge fees that are hidden, exploitative and unavoidable.

FDIC Asks for Notice of Bank Crypto-Related Activities

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) recently sent a letter to FDIC-insured banks asking that any institution considering crypto-related activities notify the agency and provide "all necessary information that would allow the FDIC to engage with the institution regarding related risks."

The American Bankers Association (ABA) President and CEO Rob Nichols said the guidance “runs counter to the administration’s intent to foster responsible innovation, and risks tilting the playing field even more in favor of unregulated crypto firms that are not subject to rigorous oversight and supervision that banks face.”
