WASHINGTON (4/18/14)--In the April edition of the Credit Union National Association's "Legislative Update Webcast," CUNA Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan gives a quick update on five essential credit union issues: Capital reforms, housing finance reforms, merchant data breaches, patent reforms and regulatory burdens.
This list of issues, when combined with others such as interchange and overdraft protections, represents a number of topics that could come up "on any given day" for credit unions on Capitol Hill. There are plenty of things CUNA hopes Congress will take care of, and other things they hope Congress won't touch, Donovan emphasized.
Each month, CUNA's legislative update webinar breaks down vital information on top congressional concerns into an easy to access and understand format.
The May edition of the legislative update webinar will be released in early May in advance of that month's Hike the Hill meetings.
