Top 10 INews NowI stories in November
MADISON, Wis. (12/2/09)--Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act stories again topped last month’s list of most-read News Now stories for the second consecutive month. CARD Act stories also topped News Now’s July and August most-read lists. The top 10 News Now stories for November are: 10. New Dodd bill would set overdraft rules WASHINGTON (11/20/09)--Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.), who heads the Senate Banking Committee, unveiled his new bill Monday that would limit the fees financial institutions can charge on overdraft protection services. 9.

Regulation is the better overdraft approach: CUNA WASHINGTON (11/13/09)--The Federal Reserve Board's final rule on overdraft protection plans, which was released on Thursday, “should give Congress pause before it proceeds further with the various legislative proposals that are now pending,” according to CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica. 7.

Fed rate action impacts CUs WASHINGTON (11/5/09)--Wednesday's decision by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to stay the course and keep the fed funds target interest rate between 0%-0.25% will maintain a steep yield curve for a while longer, and that will impact credit unions, says a CUNA economist. 3.
