Credit unions continued their advocacy in the nation's capital this week, with Leagues representing credit unions from six states in Washington, D.C.
Thirty-eight credit union leaders from California and Nevada joined their Leagues to meet with regulators and legislators, including NCUA, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Treasury, four U.S. Senate offices, and 38 House offices.
“Knowing that members of Congress and senators are taking positions that support credit unions is a testament to the difference advocacy makes within the halls of Congress,” said Stephanie Cuevas, senior vice president of federal government affairs for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues. “Our lobby day started on a high note and ended on a high note.”
The Credit Union Association of New Mexico and representatives from member credit unions visited Sen. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M., Rep. Melanie Stansbury, D-N.M., and attended the NCUA board meeting.
Kentucky credit union leaders also met with senators, representatives, and NCUA to ensure credit unions can continue to serve members.
Several Leagues also joined CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle in responding to interchange bill sponsors and setting the record straight.
