CUNA strongly supports closure of the fund and for NCUA to begin issuing refunds starting in 2018, the only national trade association for credit unions to hold that position.“CUNA’s number one priority is ensuring credit unions get their money back starting in 2018, so we’re glad to see it as an item on NCUA’s upcoming board meeting agenda,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “We look forward to engaging with NCUA to ensure closure of the fund in a safe and sound manner.”CUNA fully supports NCUA’s proposed plan, issued in July, to close the TCCUSF, merge its assets into the share insurance fund and repay credit unions a portions of stabilization fund premiums in 2018.CUNA does have concerns with provisions that authorize NCUA’s to raise the normal operating level (NOL) to 1.39%, and addressed them in its comment letter filed with the agency last month.last_img read more

Bravo extends fine batting form in Big Bash T20

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):All-rounder Dwayne Bravo extended his fine batting form, upstaging both West Indies teammates Chris Gayle and AndrÈ Russell, as he fired Melbourne Renegades to a handsome five-wicket win over Sydney Thunder yesterday.Chasing a challenging 174 at the Sydney Showground Stadium, Renegades swept to victory in the final over with Bravo hammering a stroke-filled 47 off 24 deliveries.He struck three fours and three sixes and put on 91 for the third wicket with captain Cameron White, who top-scored with 61 from 46 deliveries.Bravo, who also got a half-century at the weekend, looked en route to another when he moved into the 40s with two sixes off medium pacer Russell in the 18th over.However, he was deceived with the fourth ball, top-edging a slower delivery for Russell to snare the caught and bowled chance. Three balls later, Russell accounted for White to finish with two for 42 from his four overs.Gayle had earlier struck a breezy 28 off 20 deliveries as he put on 46 off 29 balls for the first wicket with Tom Cooper who got 25.He perished in the fifth over, caught at fine leg off seamer Clint McKay, looking for his sixth boundary of the innings.Opting to bat first, Thunder mustered 176 for five off their allotted 20 overs, with opener Usman Khawaja (62) and Shane Watson (62) both top-scoring.Khawaja helped add 61 for the first wicket with Jacques Kallis (13) and a further 57 for the second wicket with Watson.Russell, batting at number four, belted a four and a six in scoring 16 from nine balls, while Bravo picked up two for 26 from four overs of medium pace.last_img read more
