CUNA engaged with House votes, PPP hearings this week

CUNA will be engaged in House floor votes and several hearings in both chambers of Congress this week.

  • The COVID-19 Fraud Prevention Act (H.R. 6735), which would establish a working group that would be a collaboration between the Securities and Exchange Commission and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau with the goal of helping to protect scam attempts during the pandemic.
