Washington, D.C. (January 30, 2018) – Credit Union National Association President/CEO Jim Nussle released a statement following remarks in President Donald Trump's State of the Union address:   

“The voices of credit union members have helped put regulatory relief for small financial institutions on the mind of the administration,” Nussle said. “CUNA, our state associations and our member credit unions are strong proponents of S. 2155, the Senate’s bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, and we stand ready and willing to work with the administration and Congress about additional ways for community financial institutions to see a better operating environment. At the end of the day, credit unions are fighting to remove these barriers for the benefit of their members, and American consumers as a whole." 

CUNA launched its bipartisan, pro-consumer Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation in 2017.
