Mica to represent CUs at Senate Banking hearing today
WASHINGTON (3/24/09)—Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Dan Mica is scheduled to testify today before the Senate Banking Committee during its second hearing this year on modernizing financial institution supervision. Mica will state the credit union case that a separate federal regulator is an imperative for credit unions because their structure and, in some ways, operations are so distinct from banks and thrifts. Mica will be seated on a panel of witnesses comprised of credit union, bank, and consumer group representatives. This hearing follows by less than a week the committee’s opening session on the issues. Last week, financial institution regulators, including National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Michael Fryzel, testified. Fryzel told the banking panel that credit unions deserve and require a separate regulator because they are fundamentally different in structure and operation than other types of financial institutions. Other witnesses at today's hearing include:
* Gail Hillebrand, senior attorney, Consumers Union of U.S., Inc.; * William Attridge, president/CEO/COO, Community River Community Bank, for the Independent Community Bankers of America * Aubrey Patterson, chairman/CEO, BancorpSouth, Inc., for the American Bankers Association; and * Richard Christopher Whalen, SVP/managing director, Institutional Risk Analytics.
