March 8, 2021

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) announced Monday he will not seek re-election in 2022. Blunt has served in the Senate since 2011 and represented Missouri in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1997-2011.

“Sen. Blunt has been a strong supporter of credit unions and a friend of mine dating back to our time together in the House. We’ve worked closely with him on data security and regulatory relief legislation, and he has always welcomed meetings and other engagement with our partners at the Heartland Credit Union League,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “CUNA, Leagues, and credit unions will miss Sen. Blunt. We wish him and his family the best going forward.”

Blunt co-sponsored the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155), which was signed into law in 2018. He also introduced CUNA-backed data security legislation with Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) in previous Congresses and has appeared at CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference.
