Washington, DC (December 16, 2015) - Jim Nussle, president/CEO of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) issued a statement following the release of the omnibus spending bill:
“While there are provisions in the bill that provide some positive impact for credit unions, we are disappointed Congressional leaders were unable to reach an agreement on the bipartisan issues impacting small financial intuitions that would garner significant regulatory relief for credit unions and our over 100 million members.”
With its network of affiliated state credit union leagues, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) serves America's credit unions, which are owned by more than 100 million consumer members. Credit unions are not-for-profit cooperatives providing affordable financial services to people from all walks of life. For more information about CUNA, visit www.cuna.org or follow @CUNA on Twitter.
