Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) visited Landmark CU, New Berlin, Wis., this month, meeting with the leadership team and taking a tour of the administrative offices. CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan said earlier this month that credit union visits are an essential part of CUNA’s bipartisan, pro-consumer Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation.
"We were honored to host Speaker Ryan," said Jay Magulski, president/CEO of Landmark CU. "His visit provided a wonderful opportunity to share Landmark's success story and discuss legislative topics of importance to us."
Ryan has addressed the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference in the past, and has a strong relationship with the Wisconsin Credit Union League and Wisconsin credit unions, with league President/CEO Brett Thompson calling him one of “our strongest supporters” when he was voted Speaker of the House in October 2015.
Rep. Rod Blum (R-Iowa) visited a credit union in his district earlier in April, where he manned the teller line, in addition to speaking with staff and members.
The Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation aims to reduce regulation on credit unions by compelling Congress to end one-size-fits-all regulations better suited for Wall Street than credit unions on Main Street.
