CU System
Dakotas elections mean CU advocates will be busy
BISMARCK, N.D. (11/16/10)--The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas will have to become acquainted with new legislators because the elections earlier this month saw a shift in power in the U.S. Senate and House seats in North Dakota and South Dakota. Heading into the Nov. 2 election, Democrats held five of the six federal congressional seats in the two states--including three of four in the Senate and both at-large House seats. After election night, the Republicans picked up three seats--one Senate seat in North Dakota and the two lone at-large House seats in both states to take control of four of the six congressional seats. In the North Dakota state legislature, there will be 28 new legislators this session, the association said. Of the 28 new legislators, the association said it was able “to reach out and engage” 15 of the new lawmakers through legislative chapter meetings or credit union-sponsored events. In South Dakota, Republicans gained seven seats in the state senate for a 29-6 advantage. In the state house, Republicans gained three seats and will have a 49-21 edge in members. Although it was able to reach out to some candidates during the campaign season, the association said it will have to quickly provide other new legislators with information on important credit union matters and issues.
