NASCUS Part Of Ceremony
ARLINGTON, Va.-NASCUS CEO Mary Martha Fortney took part in a signing ceremony of Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) information sharing.

NASCUS state regulators have been working for several months with CSBS, FinCEN, federal banking agencies and the IRS to produce agreements to allow BSA information to "flow" back and forth between state credit union and banking departments and federal agencies.
