Also on fair lending, the NCUA Tuesday released a new letter to federal credit unions (13-FCU-02) saying it will select a number of federal credit unions to undergo a fair lending examination this year. The letter also outlined the factors that agency examiners will use to determine whether a federal credit union should be subject to further fair lending reviews.
