August 20, 2018

CUNA will be engaged with the Senate Banking Committee’s markup of several nominees Thursday, most notably director of Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection nominee Kathy Kraninger. The Senate Banking Committee is expected to meet in executive session to consider the nominees at 9:30 a.m. (ET) Thursday.

CUNA wrote to the committee in July for the record of the hearing in which Kraninger testified, supporting the nomination process and calling for a bipartisan commission to lead the bureau. Two members of the committee supported a commission during the hearing.
