WASHINGTON (1/19/11)--Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) is the latest member of Congress who will speak at the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) this February.

Capito, who has served in Congress since 2001, has backed regulatory relief for credit unions and has pledged to support the credit union tax exemption. She was backed by the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) during her successful 2010 reelection campaign. Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), and Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) are currently slated to speak at the GAC.
