WASHINGTON – NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz, who tightened the regulatory screws when she took over at NCUA in 2009, assumed the role of de-regulator during CUNA’s Government Affairs Conference yesterday, saying the agency’s efforts now are aimed at reducing regulatory burden.

Matz told more than 4,000 GAC attendees recent efforts to expand the number of low-income designated credit unions and raising the asset threshold for small credit unions designation have delivered important regulatory relief for more than 1,000 credit unions. “Many of these changes are geared toward removing burdens and providing responsible regulatory relief,” Matz said.
