NCUA Adds Loan Participation Rule To Thursday Agenda
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (6/19/13)--A final rule on loan participations has been added to the National Credit Union Administration's June open board meeting agenda.

While the details of the final rule will not be available until the board meeting, the Credit Union National Association has raised serious concerns about the proposal as it was issued December 2011 and is hopeful important changes will be included in the final rule.

In its comment letter and subsequent advocacy efforts on the proposal, the CUNA urged the agency to withdraw it, as the net worth limitations on loan originations from one originator and one borrower in particular would be very problematic. CUNA also urged the agency to provide a waiver process.

CUNA also raised concerns about the impact of the proposal, saying it would add to the regulatory burden of affected credit unions in a manner that is wholly disproportionate to the risks associated with loan participations.

A proposed Illinois Member Business Loan rule is the other item on the open board meeting agenda. Supervisory activity considerations will be considered during the closed board meeting.

The open meeting is scheduled to being at 10 a.m. (ET) on Thursday. The closed meeting will follow shortly thereafter.
