Washington, DC (March 1, 2018) – Today, the Senate announced it will give floor consideration to S. 2155, the bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act.
"America's credit unions thank Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for their help in getting this important piece of legislation to the floor," said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. "This carefully crafted bill includes commonsense improvements that will allow community banks and credit unions to better serve their customers. We strongly urge for the enactment of S. 2155 as this bill is vital to small businesses, consumers and community-based financial institutions."
CUNA has activated grassroots efforts in support of The Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation. Credit unions have generated over 30,000 messages to Senators urging their support for S. 2155, and will continue to engage through the legislative process.
