The 117th Congress can take several actions in its final weeks to improve consumers’ financial well-being, CUNA Deputy Chief Advocacy Officer Jason Stverak wrote to all members of Congress Wednesday.
“Credit unions support several common-sense, bipartisan priorities that would benefit communities still reeling from the pandemic and its economic effects,” Stverak wrote.
Credit union priorities are:
CUNA reiterated its support for the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act (which would provide a safe harbor for institutions serving legal cannabis businesses), and legislation promoting fair hiring in financial services.
CUNA also remains strongly opposed to any legislation that would end popular overdraft products, including H.R. 4277.
