Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton repeated her pledge to remove regulatory burden on credit unions and community banks during a speech Thursday. Addressing a crowd in Warren, Mich., Clinton spoke at length about the economy.
As part of her “major push” to empower small businesses, Clinton said she will roll out “new national initiatives to cut red tape at every level and expand access to credit, especially through community banks and credit unions.”
Clinton previously spoke of the need to support businesses through regulatory relief for credit unions and community banks, thereby increasing access to capital.
CUNA has had discussions in recent weeks with the campaigns of both Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Credit union stakeholders can continue to tack action during the campaign by visiting CUNA’s MiddleClass2016.com, which allows them to inform the candidates and their staffs about the importance of serving the middle class by supporting credit unions.
