The National Credit Union Administration on Wednesday approved new restrictions on business lending.

The rule, which enforces a law enacted Aug. 7, prohibits credit union business lending that exceeds the lesser of 1.75 times net worth or 12.25% of total assets. Business loans for less than $50,000 are excluded from the cap, however.
