GOP NCUA Board Members to Push Divisive Rules to a Vote

The two Republicans on the National Credit Union Administration board intend to join forces to bring final rules that Chairman Todd Harper opposes to a vote by the agency board, Washington Credit Union Daily has learned.

Republicans Rodney Hood and Kyle Hauptman intend to push three final rules onto the board agenda starting in October, according to a source familiar with the agency. The three rules were considered as proposed rules before Harper, a Democrat, was appointed as chairman to replace Hood. As a board member, he opposed the three rules. They have not been brought back to the board in final form.
