Washington, DC (February 3, 2017) – President Donald Trump signed an executive order focused on the financial system that calls for “efficient, effective and appropriately tailored” regulations. This is a key objective of Credit Union National Association’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation which seeks to relieve regulatory burdens to better allow local institutions like credit unions to make decisions that best suit their communities.
“We appreciate the administration’s direction to ensure that regulations are appropriately tailored to target those harming consumers and to provide more consideration to the impact of these regulations on American consumers,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “The current one-size-fits-all style of regulation does not work for Main Street – local credit unions, small banks, and the consumers and small businesses they serve. We’re hopeful that the core principles spelled out today will help ensure community financial institutions and the millions of Americans that rely on them are able to operate in a more favorable environment. We stand willing to work with the administration and Congress to make appropriate changes to achieve these goals.”
