Washington, D.C.: Success for Credit Unions in 2019!

In Congress it’s easy to focus on all the noise regardless of political preferences; however, 2019 was a significant year for credit unions with the issues addressed to protect and advance the industry. This did not happen by accident, but by design … credit unions, Leagues and CUNA work together to bring attention to the key issues in Washington, D.C., and help shape thinking through the Hike the Hill visits and in-district meetings. It is through working together that real change can be achieved! Legislative victories included:

Georgia was instrumental in several of these efforts, particularly on updating BSA/CTR thresholds and removing the regulatory hurdles in place to serve people in or around the legal cannabis-based businesses. Our thanks to all the Georgia credit unions who engaged on these issues, as well as connecting with U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-11) multiple times on the BSA/CTR issue, which he introduced at the start of this year. By continuing to work together at the federal level, between credit unions, Leagues and CUNA, there is no limit to the success credit unions can achieve!
