Reduce regulatory burden.
Press the CFPB to provide more expansive exemptions to credit unions, and work with leagues to assist credit unions in their regulatory compliance.

Ensure credit unions have continued access to the housing finance marketplace on fair and reasonable terms.
Maintain marketplace flexibility.
Oppose undue limitations on member business loans or mortgages, and new price caps in any aspect of credit union operations, including interchange.
Push forward with “Plan to Win.”
Continue to build a 535-seat strategy in which credit unions and their members reach out to lawmakers to press for passage of important legislation.
