Washington, DC (November 1, 2017) – Following the announcement for House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling that he will not seek reelection in 2018, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) president/CEO Jim Nussle released a statement:

“CUNA thanks Chairman Hensarling for his work in Congress, particularly for his leadership on the House Financial Services Committee where we had many fruitful discussions about ways to improve the operating environment for credit unions. When I was Budget Chairman, Hensarling served on my committee his freshman year and I’ll never forget working with him. He was a welcome voice calling for properly tailored regulations, and we wish him the best in the next phase of his career.”
