FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 9, 2023
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., announced Thursday he will not seek re-election. Manchin chairs the Senate Energy Committee and has served in the Senate since 2010.
“We thank Sen. Manchin for his support of many credit union priorities, including examination fairness, and co-sponsoring S. 2155, which was eventually enacted into law,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “His support for common-sense regulatory relief helped credit unions increase service to members and communities, and we wish him and his family the best going forward.”
Manchin was an original co-sponsor of S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. He also sponsored bills in several Congresses to reform financial institution examination processes.
CUNA and the West Virginia Credit Union League supported Manchin in his last election with a partisan communication campaign.
