Washington
Omnibus spending bill signed into law
WASHINGTON (1/16/14)--The U.S. government is funded into October after President Barack Obama late last week signed a $1 trillion omnibus spending bill.

As well as providing overall funding for the government, the bill increases funding for the Community Development Revolving Loan Fund at an annualized rate of $1,144,746 and the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund at $210 million. The maximum loan limitation of the National Credit Union Administration's Central Liquidity Facility will also be maintained at its current statutory ceiling of 12 times its paid-in capital.

The Credit Union National Association in a Jan. 7 letter urged lawmakers to restore funding to these two vital programs at levels proscribed in a 2012 law. (See Jan. 15 News Now story: CUNA-requested CDRLF, CDFI Fund funding levels restored under House bill.)
