* ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (10/30/09)--Representatives of the Credit Union Association of New Mexico (CUANM) met earlier this month with U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-N.M.) to discuss some issues of concern to credit unions (CUANM Network October). Lujan was knowledgeable about the credit union position on interchange fee legislation, Community Reinvestment Act extension to credit unions and the proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency, said the association. He said he is opposed to interchange fee legislation. He also sees a need for data security legislation. Credit unions are advocating on the national and state levels to require merchants to discard any personal or credit card information gathered from consumer.
