Hairston, associate administrator of the Office of Management and Administration; * Subash S. Iyer, special assistant to the administrator; * Joseph G.

Lipscomb, general counsel; * Ana M. Ma, chief of staff; * Toby J.G. McGrath, associate administrator for the Office of Field Operations; * Kimberly A.

The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) has emphasized that credit unions are ready to help the nation’s small businesses revive the economy and has worked with the SBA on issues affecting credit unions. CUNA is currently monitoring provisions of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus package regarding SBA lending. SBA 7(a) and 504 lending would benefit from a provision in the package that would raise the percentage of a loan that the SBA can guarantee to 90% from 85%. Credit unions benefit from the increase because the guaranteed portion of such loans does not count toward the member business lending cap of 12.25% (News Now Feb. 10).
