|McWatters confirmed to NCUA board|
The U.S. Senate confirmed J. Mark McWatters to the National
Credit Union Administration board, a term that will last through Aug. 2,
McWatters was nominated in January to succeed Michael
Fryzel on the board. He testified on his nomination this March before
the Senate Banking Committee. During the hearing, McWatters told the
panel he intended to look closely at NCUA’s risk-based capital proposal –
“the devil is in the details,” he said. He also said he saw
opportunities for low-income credit unions to do more to meet the needs
of underserved consumers.
Only two of NCUA's three board members
may be from the same political party. McWatters is a Republican.
Democrats Debbie Matz, the board's chairman, and Rick Metsger, a member
of the board, have terms that will continue through Aug. 2, 2015, and
Aug. 2, 2017, respectively.
McWatters, once sworn in, could
participate in his first NCUA board meeting next month. The board is
scheduled to meet in open session July 31.
