New bill would push CFPB supervision trigger to $50B
WASHINGTON (8/1/14)--Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) have introduced a bill that would raise the credit union threshold for supervision by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to $50 billion in assets, up from the current $10 billion. If passed, the bill would exempt all but one credit union from direct CFPB supervision.

"Our thanks to Sens. Toomey and Donnelly for introducing this legislation, which would ease the regulatory burden facing credit unions affected by direct CFPB supervision," said John Magill, executive vice president of government relations for the Credit Union National Association.

"While this bill is a welcome development, CUNA continues to urge the CFPB to use its broad exemption authority for credit unions more extensively, as we strongly believe there is more CFPB can and should do on its own to exempt credit unions from unnecessary regulations," Magill added.

Former congressman and House Banking Committee Chair Barney Frank, a Democrat from Massachsetts,  testified at a House Financial Services Committee hearing last week that the examination threshold should be raised.
