CUNA to drive home need for reg relief at House hearing
WASHINGTON (7/11/14)--The Credit Union National Association has asked Ohio credit union CEO Doug Fecher to speak for the credit union movement on regulatory relief before Congress Tuesday.

Fecher, president/CEO of Wright-Patt CU in Beavercreek, Ohio, with $2.8 billion in assets, will testify before the House Financial Services Committee's subcommittee on financial institutions and consumer credit at a hearing titled "Examining Regulatory Relief Proposal for Community Financial Institutions."

Fecher will address regulatory burden and its effect on credit unions. He will address topics such as the Federal Reserve's Regulation D, which places limits on pre-authorized withdrawals and transfers, risk-based capital, the Credit Union Residential Loan Parity Act, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau examination thresholds and more.

CUNA has testified more than a dozen times in the past three years on regulatory relief matters, and Fecher has testified on behalf of CUNA multiple times. The hearing is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. (ET).
