House expected to vote on S. 2155 next week

The House intends to vote on the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155) next week, as early as Tuesday, according to numerous reports. CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle is urging credit unions to make a final push to encourage members of Congress to support the bill.

“We’re entering the home stretch for this bill, and we’ve gotten this far because credit union leaders from around the country have told their members of Congress how this bill will help them serve their members better,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “It’s time to give a final push and get this thing across the finish line. Tell your members of Congress this bill is vital to the American consumer, that it needs to be signed into law to remove barriers keeping hard-working Americans from accessing safe products and services.

“The more votes we get, the more we’ll be able to convince members of Congress that regulatory relief is a truly bipartisan issue, and the better we’ll be positioned to see future regulatory relief,” Nussle added.
