Congress on recess; Yellen to testify next week on monetary policy

Lawmakers are working in their home district and state offices this week, providing a great opportunity for credit unions to reach out on top industry issues, including the ongoing push for regulatory relief.

NAFCU’s Grassroots Action Center allows credit unions to find contact information for their lawmakers and look up key credit union-related legislation to see where their members of Congress stand on those bills.
