CUNA will be engaged with several hearings on Capitol Hill this week, including ones related to consumer data-related cyberthreats. The House is expected to release the complete text of its reconciliation bill and potentially vote on it by the end of the week.

The Federal Communications Commission should delay implementing its call-blocking deadline, CUNA and other organizations wrote in an ex parte letter filed in response to a petition regarding requirements that voice service providers that block calls notify callers of the block using certain codes.
