WASHINGTON (June 8, 2017) – Today, the House of Representatives passed the Financial CHOICE Act by 233-186. Rep. Jeb Hensarling’s (R-Texas) legislation contains regulatory relief provisions that benefit credit unions and their members.

And, as the debate moves to the Senate, we will continue to play offense to ensure Congress enacts common-sense legislation that improves the operating environment for credit unions to more fully serve their members.”
