Credit union members would have access to linked deposit programs from the Treasurer of State, including GrowNow, SaveNow, Ag Link, ECO Link and Bid Ohio, the league added. Credit union leaders have met with State Rep. Nancy Garland (D-New Albany), a co-sponsor; State Rep. Ted Celeste (D-Grandview Heights), and State Sen. Tom Patton (R-Strongsville).
