Bill to Open FHLBs to Privately Insured CUs Clears Committee

Legislation that would allow privately insured credit unions access to the Federal Home Loan Bank system cleared committee last week and is headed to the House floor for a vote. Introduced in December by Rep. Steve Stivers, R-OH, and Joyce Beatty, D-OH, H.R. 3584, the Capital Access for Small Community Financial Institutions Act of 2013, would amend the Federal Home Loan Bank Act to allow privately insured credit unions to be eligible for FHLBank membership. H.R. 3584 was voted out of the House Financial Services Committee by a vote of 55-0.

Poll

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.
2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.
Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.
Not in my lifetime.
