Compliance Weighs Heavy for Credit Unions

A House subcommittee hearing recently began an investigation into the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. According to CUNA News, lawmakers were told that “every dollar a credit union must spend complying with regulatory changes is a dollar it cannot spend to benefit its member.”

While I agree on a certain level (because that is obvious), I also believe compliance protects the members’ money as well. If the credit union is fined for a violation, then the membership pays for that error. There is no board of directors to incur the costs. The burden rests squarely on the shoulders of the membership.
