Bentivolio, who represents Michigan's 11th District, met with credit union representatives at the Livonia headquarters of Co-Op Services CU (Monitor Jan. 20).

CEO Tony Carnarvon started the meeting by discussing credit unions' costs as a result of the compromised debit and credit card information. (See related story: "CUs' state-by-state breach data can inform advocacy efforts.")
 
Bentivolio shared his interest in raising data security standards for merchant payment systems. He also offered his assistance to efforts that could help prevent data breaches of this magnitude, the Monitor reported.
 
The group also discussed government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) reform, member business lending and Bentivolio's continued support of the credit union tax exemption.
