Mary Landrieu (D-La.) after the senator said she and U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) would introduce a Senate bill identical to the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (H.R. 1537), currently making its way through the House. The announcement came during Wednesday’s GAC general session in Washington, D.C. “Credit unions reach people where they are and get them to where they need to be,” said Landrieu. “Sen. Lieberman and I will do the best we can to move this bill in Congress on your behalf” and on behalf of the people credit unions serve, she concluded. (Photo provided by CUNA)
WASHINGTON (3/6/08)--Credit union attendees of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference responded with a raucous standing ovation yesterday to Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-La.) news that she will introduce a Senate version of the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) will co-sponsor the credit union bill, which is identical to the House bill, CURIA, H.R. 1537. CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica praised the action. The bill could be introduced as early as today. “Our sincere thanks to Sen. Mary Landrieu for introducing credit union regulatory improvement legislation in the Senate. Our gratitude also to Sen. Joe Lieberman for co-sponsoring,” said the CUNA leader. “This is a significant development for credit unions, as this bill is identical to a measure in the House--which has earned the support of 145 members, and continues to add co-sponsors,” said Mica. Mica said he looks forward to working with Landrieu, Lieberman and other senators in “building similar backing for this bill in the Senate in the weeks to come.”
