MCULs Capitol Day attracts lawmakers
LANSING, Mich. (10/18/11)--The Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) & Affiliates’ annual Capitol Day Wednesday provided several credit union representatives the opportunity to share lunch with their state lawmakers and explain the credit union position on some hot topics.

More than 75 credit union people statewide were on hand to greet about 100 lawmakers and staffers who attended the luncheon in the House Office Building, near the state Capitol in Lansing (Michigan Monitor Oct. 17). Topics discussed included potential reforms to Michigan’s current 90-day foreclosure delay process, raising the threshold for filing in small claims court, financial elder exploitation and removing the annual signature requirement for political action committee checkoff for payroll deductions. David Adams, league CEO, accepted legislative resolutions from the state House and Senate in honor of credit unions and their superior service and dedication to the more than 4.5 million members in Michigan. State Sen. Mike Green (R-Mayville) and State Rep. Lisa Posthumus Lyons (R-Alto) sponsored the resolutions and participated in the presentations. House Banking Committee Chairman Rep. Marty Knollenberg (R-Troy) and Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sen. Darwin Booher (R-Evart) also attended. Credit union participants educated lawmakers on the credit union difference. The luncheon will complement MCUL’s ongoing advocacy efforts at the state Capitol this fall, said Jordan Kingdon, league director of governmental affairs.
