This week, America’s Credit Unions remains engaged on Capitol Hill as lawmakers near the Jan. 19 deadline to secure government funding for four appropriations measures, including Agriculture, Energy, Veterans, Transportation and Housing programs, amongst others. Funding for eight other appropriations bills that fund other areas of the government expires Feb. 2.
