WASHINGTON (3/27/15)--Nine regulatory relief bills supported by CUNA were approved by the House Financial Services Committee Thursday after a two-day markup of a series of bills.
"These bills are a step in the right direction toward removing barriers and allowing credit unions to efficiently serve their members," said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle.
"I look forward to seeing these pieces of legislation that reduce regulatory burden come the House floor for a vote.

The bills that passed the committee Thursday include:
The next step in the House for these bills would be a vote on the House floor.
