Washington
Bushs signature lifts CLF lending cap
WASHINGTON (10/1/08)--President George W. Bush last night signed into law a government funding resolution that also contains a borrowing cap increase for the National Credit Union Administration's (NCUA's) Central Liquidity Facility (CLF) for Fiscal Year 2009. The increased borrowing ceiling was included in a continuing resolution (CR) to keep the government funded into 2009. The legislation was approved 78-12 by the Senate on Saturday and was passed 370-58 by the House on Wednesday. The CLF provision temporarily lifts an arbitrary $1.5 billion lending cap placed on the NCUA's liquidity facility. The increased cap would allow the CLF to lend up to approximately $41 billion to the Credit Union System. Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan said the higher lending cap has been sought by the NCUA in order to have an additional regulatory tool at their disposal, if needed, and CUNA has been “working very hard over the past week to make this happen."
