Webinar: Credit Union Impacts of Senate Bill 2155

Hosted by: Compliance Council

Date: Wednesday, November 7, 2018
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. CST


On May 24, 2018, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (Regulatory Relief Act) was signed into law. The Regulatory Relief Act (also referred to as Senate Bill 2155) provides significant and specific regulatory relief to credit unions. Some relief will be available immediately while other changes will require regulatory changes by the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP) or other federal regulators. This webinar will analyze the impact of the Regulatory Relief Act, specific changes and areas of relief, and what credit unions should expect going forward.

Specifically, this webinar will analyze the new safe harbor category of Qualified Mortgages, new exemption for appraisals in rural areas under certain conditions, changes to the HMDA data collection and reporting requirements for small lenders, escrow requirement changes, and the possible impact of Section 213 on utilizing and retaining IDs obtained when providing online services. Additional areas of focus will be changes to requirements under the Servicemember Civil Relief Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Truth in Lending Act.


  • Overview of the Regulatory Relief Act’s impact on credit unions
  • Review of changes to non-owner occupied 1- to 4- family dwellings and the National Credit Union Administration’s final rule making corresponding changes to its regulations
  • Clarification on the impact of the Act’s changes to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act requirements
