Final DNC speaker lineup featured heavy CU hitters
DENVER (9/2/08)—Those keeping score of Thursday’s Democratic National Convention speaker lineup would have noticed each House member had a common credit union streak: With the exception of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), each was a cosponsor of the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (CURIA, H.R. 1537). While the Speaker of the House generally does not co-sponsor legislation, these seven CURIA co-sponsors spoke in advance of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s acceptance speech Thursday at Invesco Field in Denver:
* Mark Udall (D-Colo.); * John Lewis (D-Ga.); * Diana DeGette (D- Colo.); * John Salazar (D-Colo.); * Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.); * Jan Schakowski (D-Ill.); and * Louis Gutierrez (D-Ill.).
According to Credit Union National Association Legislative Affairs Vice President Ryan Donovan, the convention’s final night is generally reserved for the party's most well respected and influential members. “Credit unions should be very proud of that,” said Donovan. “It is a terrific illustration of the influence credit unions have developed with leaders in the House of Representatives as well as the success of our grassroots advocacy programs."
