The House passed the FY23 National Defense Authorization Act late Thursday with several CUNA-supported provisions, including the SAFE Banking Act, extended CARES Act Central Liquidity Facility flexibility, and language supporting fair hiring in financial services.
The Credit Union Board Modernization Act (H.R. 6889) would free up credit union resources to better serve members, CUNA wrote to bill sponsors Reps. Juan Vargas, D-Calif., and Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio.
Congress should recognize the role of credit unions in serving military members and their families, CUNA and the Defense Credit Union Council wrote to a House Oversight and Reform subcommittee for a hearing on protecting servicemembers and veterans from fraud.
CUNA supports legislation that would repeal Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Act and require the CFPB to explicitly justify decisions that ignore the interests of small businesses during the rulemaking process.
CUNA joined organizations in supporting the addition of the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act to the House version of the FY23 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which is scheduled for a House floor vote this week.
CUNA Senior Economist Dawit Kebede noted prices rose 9.1% year-over-year, higher than the consensus expectation, leading to a higher chance the Fed will raise interest rates by 75 basis points if not more by the end of the month.
