WASHINGTON - The Senate Banking Committee may hold a hearing on Carla LeÃ³n-Decker's nomination to the NCUA Board on Nov. 17, according to several industry sources.
No official announcement has been made.
Decker, the president/CEO of the $47 million District Government Employees FCU in Washington, has been nominated by President Obama to succeed outgoing NCUA Board Member Gigi Hyland. Hyland's term expired in August but continues to serve until a successor is sworn-in.
NCUA announced Tuesday that it would investigate the apparent leak of D.C. Government Employees FCU's credit union examination results after a press report earlier in the day cited examination information that identified such things as DC FCU's CAMEL rating. The NCUA in a release said credit union examination results are confidential information and not for public release under the law.
"This trust has been violated in the case of DC Federal Credit Union," the agency added.
The Senate Banking committee will likely also take up the nomination of Thomas Hoenig as vice chairman of the FDIC. Until recently, Hoenig was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
