Dear Chairman Sarbanes:
On behalf of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the nation's 82 million credit union members, I commend you for moving expeditiously on the nomination of Wayne Abernathy for assistant secretary for financial institutions of the Treasury Department. CUNA strongly supports his nomination and we are confident that Wayne will be a valuable asset in implementing the policies of the Treasury Department.
We have known Wayne to be a fair-minded, open public servant for many years. There is every reason to believe that his calm, but measured, approach to policy will serve him and our nation well as he embarks on a new chapter of his public service career.
Daniel A. Mica
