Cordray says CFPB will help level playing field for CUs
WASHINGTON (3/20/12)--Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray noted Monday that credit unions provide "high quality products and services" to their members.

He said that the not-for-profit model makes credit unions unique and especially pro consumer. He praised credit unions for their efforts on financial literacy, including the mortgage classes that many of them hold.
