State Issues

On March 18, the Indiana governor signed House Enrolled Act No. 1353, which amends various provisions concerning financial institutions and consumer credit, including those related to first lien mortgage lenders, credit unions, and surety bond requirements for licensed mortgage loans originators, pawnbrokers, and money transmitters, among others. Among other things, the act also amends a provision in the state statute governing credit unions, which provides that loans made by a credit union to the credit union’s individual officers (and to the immediate family members of an officer, director, or supervisory committee member) must be made in accordance with Regulation O of the Federal Reserve Board. The act also stipulates that required appraisals connected to mortgage loans made to credit union members must be “consistent with the appraisal standards and transaction value limitations” outlined in the National Credit Union Administration’s appraisal regulations. The amendments take effect July 1.
