PCUA CEO testifies on CUs financial conditions

Credit unions will be affected indirectly in the long term by the current credit crisis, but credit unions are well-capitalized and have healthy reserves, he explained to the committee (Life is a Highway Sept. 24). “Our deposits grow organically. We have healthy balance sheets, and we’re in the business of lending to consumers,” McCormack said. Also testifying were Steven Kaplan, secretary of banking; Robin Wiessmann, state treasurer; and representatives from the Pennsylvania Securities Commission, including: Robert Lam, acting chairman; Michael Byrne, chief counsel; and John Quinn, director, corporation finance. The committee will hold a future meeting after the U.S. Treasury unveils its proposal, PCUA said.
