January 4, 2011
The New York State Consumer Protection Board joined with the Credit Union Association of New York and others to announce the start of a new, innovative program to protect consumers and financial institutions from fake check scams.
CUNA wrote in support of legislation Monday that is a step forward in addressing the threat of litigation under the Americans With Disabilities Act, urging legislators to consider how credit unions are being impacted by frivolous litigation.
The House Financial Services Committee passed 8 CUNA-supported regulatory relief bills Thursday. CUNA wrote in support of the bills prior to the markup, particularly one that would raise the CFPB's supervisory threshold to $50 billion.
