CU MANAGERS MEET
WITH COLLIN PETERSON
A group of credit union managers from credit unions in the 7th district, met with
Collin Peterson on April 22 to discuss the regulation that NCUA is proposing that
unfairly weights the risk in loan portfolios that include ag and business loans.
Congressman Peterson had been briefed prior to our meeting and understood the issue.
He told us that a letter to NCUA from the Congress of the United States had been drafted
to NCUA and he had signed on to the letter. The letter expressed the members' of Congress
concerns of the economic impact this new regulation would have on credit union members,
and asked that the NCUA board:
- Take into account the cost of implementation of the regulation
- Provide justification to Congress on the need for the proposed risk ratings that
differ significantly from other types of financial institutions
- Give credit unions more time than the regulation allows for compliance after a final rule is adopted.
