Warren: CUs Have Input
WASHINGTON — The woman setting up the new Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection said the bureau will be a strong ally of credit unions that "want to work on behalf of their members."
Elizabeth Warren told CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference that the bureau will have an ongoing dialogue with credit unions to ensure that credit unions can serve their members and not face more regulations. She said her bureau will combine TILA and RESPA rules, and this should simplify things for small lenders. Warren also promised that the bureau would seek to ensure that there are consistent rules and enforcement for nonbank lenders so that the financial service market can be a more level playing field.
