ICBA Lawsuit Prompts Washington CU Regulator to Suspend MBL Rulemaking

Washington Division of Credit Unions has temporarily suspended its member business loan (MBL) rule-making process due to the Independent Community Bankers Association (ICBA) lawsuit challenging the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) recently adopted final rule related to MBLs.

The Division of Credit Unions concurred with the requests. The state credit union regulator believes temporarily suspending the rule-making will give it time to analyze this lawsuit and its implications for Washington State.
