IN WAKE OF DECISION UPHOLDING MOST OF NCUA’S FOM RULE, ITO PRAISES NCUA’S DETERMINATION TO MAINTAIN AN EFFECTIVE FEDERAL CHARTER

Arlington, VA –  In a victory for NCUA and the credit union system, the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals upheld virtually all aspects of NCUA’s Field of Membership Rule, overturning the lower district court which had struck down two provisions of the rule.

NASCUS President and CEO Lucy Ito issued the following statement in response to the ruling:

“NASCUS congratulates NCUA on the field of membership ruling and commends the Agency’s efforts to maintain an effective federal charter. We have long held that a competitive federal charter is vital to preserving a robust dual charter system and today’s ruling certainly advances that goal.”
