Last chance for CUs to make voices heard before today’s S. 2155 vote

The House is set to vote on the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protect Act (S. 2155) today, and CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle is urging credit unions to make one final push to their members of Congress. Stakeholders can contact their members of Congress using CUNA’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation website.

“This is it, time for credit unions to make their voices heard one last time to get this bill across the finish line,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “Our voices helped get S. 2155 to where it is now, and we can’t afford to leave any stone unturned. This bill will benefit consumers around the country, particularly the 110 million Americans who choose credit unions as their best financial partner, and we need each member of Congress to know that their constituents want a ‘yes’ vote when it comes up on the floor today.”

CUNA joined the Independent Community Bankers of America to write to House leadership in support of the bill, and CUNA advocacy staff recently met with conservative-leaning Democrats to discuss the bill in the lead up to House consideration.
