Credit Union 24 credit union-owned ATM and POS network is advocating against the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) proposed information disclosure regulations on CUSOs. Credit Union 24 is providing tools to credit unions to help make their voice heard and is encouraging credit unions to lobby the NCUA against these regulations and posted a letter on its website, indicating the regulations will inhibit CUSO innovation and collaboration by replacing value and service factors with regulatory compliance and information disclosure, thereby not providing the same level of financial products and services for which credit unions have come to rely on CUSOs. Accordingly, it will also put CUSOs at a competitive disadvantage, thereby diminishing the intellectual value that they provide credit unions via their services, by having to disclose proprietary, confidential information to a government regulator where it may become publicly available under FOIA or equivalent laws.
