Robert Pittenger, R-N.C., urged the Government Accountability Office to conduct a study on the impact of Regulation D’s limit on transfers from savings accounts and that the GAO consult with credit unions and community banks on the issue.A similar study was called for under the House-passed “Regulation D Study Act,” H.R. 3240. While cleared unanimously by the House, the bill failed to get action in the Senate. Hensarling and Pittenger want the GAO to study the issue anyway.“Federal Reserve Regulation D limits consumers to six transfers per month from their savings account to any other accounts.

Prior to the bill’s passage, sponsors Pittenger, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., both cited NAFCU’s support of the measure in their remarks before the full House. continue reading »last_img
