Credit Card Competition Act, NCUA Third-Party Authority Absent from Senate NDAA Agreement

Lawmakers have released the text of the bipartisan agreement on a Senate substitute amendment for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which is likely be considered by the Senate in November. Absent from the list of amendments included in the substitute are the Credit Card Competition Act of 2022 and NCUA Third Party Vendor Authority, marking wins for the credit union industry, which has fought hard against the inclusion of those two measures in the NDAA and a third proposal that seeks to study interchange costs for those in the military, which is also absent from the substitute amendment.

"We can view these latest developments as wins for credit unions, but it's critical we remain engaged with lawmakers on the interchange issue and third-party vendor examination authority for NCUA. The Credit Card Competition Act remains before Congress with versions in both the Senate and House, as does third-party vendor examination authority for NCUA," notes League President/CEO Carrie Hunt. “We appreciate the good work of credit unions in helping us keep these issues top-of-mind for our lawmakers. But as we well know, the legislative process is just that, a process, so these wins are a promising sign, but vigilance is key.”
