WASHINGTON — In a recent comment letter on the latest round of amendments to the Federal Reserve’s Regulation D, CUNA looked forward to a time when reserve requirements on transaction accounts would be zero.

“Before addressing the proposed amendments, CUNA would like to comment on a more general issue regarding reserve requirements,” the association said in its March 28 letter. “Effective in 2011, the Federal Reserve Board is authorized to reduce reserve requirements on transaction accounts to zero. This is a very positive outcome given the fact that Regulation D reserves are not important for monetary policy purposes.
