Mulvaney to join NAFCU’s June 29 member call-in

House Financial Services Committee member Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., will provide credit unions his perspective on key issues during NAFCU’s June 29 member-only call-in, “2Q Advocacy Update.”

Mulvaney last year introduced the NAFCU-backed “National Credit Union Administration Budget Transparency Act” (H.R. 2287/S. 924),  a bill to require NCUA to hold yearly budget hearings and release its draft budgets for comment. The House bill was marked up and reported favorably by the panel last December. In other action supported by NAFCU, he has called for a Government Accountability Office study of nearly every aspect of NCUA’s budgeting and expenditure practices.

All members are encouraged to attend the June 29 call, said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. “Representative Mulvaney has been a staunch ally of credit unions, leading the push in the House for NCUA budget transparency,” Berger said. “We thank him for his support on this issue and look forward to hearing what he has to say during next week’s call.”

Mulvaney will speak to NAFCU members at the top of the June 29 member-only call. Attendees will also hear from Berger, Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt, Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler, Director of Regulatory Affairs Alexander Monterrubio, Director of Regulatory Compliance Brandy Bruyere, Director of Political Affairs Dan O’Brien and Chief Economist and Director of Research Curt Long.
