The conference began Sunday and concludes today.“NAFCU and the DCUC have a strong partnership and remain committed to working together to ensure servicemembers and their families have access to safe, affordable financial products and services,” Berger said.Last week, NAFCU and DCUC teamed up to reiterate their opposition to a provision included in the Senate-passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which would require the Department of Defense to treat large banks the same as not-for-profit defense credit unions on military bases. The two organizations will continue to advocate that this provision not be included in the final NDAA as House and Senate conferees reconcile differences in the two chambers’ bills.last_img read more
