Washington
Rep. Sherman of California added to GAC lineup
WASHINGTON (2/18/10)--Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) will join fellow lawmakers House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), House Minority Whip Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), among others, as a speaker at the Credit Union National Association’s Government Affairs Conference (GAC), which begins this Sunday in Washington, D.C. National Credit Union Administration Chairman Debbie Matz, U.S Small Business Administrator Karen Mills, and Reps. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) and Ed Royce (R-Calif.) are also among those scheduled to speak at the GAC. Sherman, who is a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee, has repeatedly called for Congress to lift the credit union member business lending cap, which currently stands at 12.25%, and has been a proponent of permitting credit unions to access secondary forms of capital. The GAC, which will take place Feb. 21-25, will give credit union leaders the opportunity to learn the latest, first hand, from influential policymakers, as well as a platform to advocate for credit union issues. The GAC will also feature former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and a point-counterpoint discussion between former Congressman Joe Scarborough and ex-presidential candidate and former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean.
