Maine Revised Statutes

§828. Powers of federally chartered credit unions

Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, a credit union has the power to engage in any activity that a credit union chartered by or otherwise subject to the jurisdiction of the Federal Government may be authorized to engage in by federal legislation or regulations issued pursuant to such legislation. In the event any law of this State is preempted or declared invalid pursuant to applicable federal law, by a court of competent jurisdiction or by the responsible federal chartering authority with respect to any power that may be exercised by a credit union chartered by or otherwise subject to the jurisdiction of the Federal Government, that law is invalid with respect to credit unions authorized to do business in this State. The superintendent may adopt rules to ensure that such powers are exercised in a safe and sound manner with adequate consumer protections. Rules adopted pursuant to this section are routine technical rules as defined in Title 5, chapter 375, subchapter II-A. [1997, c. 207, §2 (AMD).]
