Hunt Schrader named Oregons legislators of the year
BEAVERTON, Ore. (10/14/10)--The Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) has named Oregon Speaker of the House Dave Hunt (D-Clackamas County) “State Legislator of the Year” and U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) “Federal Legislator of the Year.” Hunt was recognized for his leadership in helping to pass CUAO’s Public Funds Bill in the last special session of the Oregon Legislature. Schrader was honored for his leadership in sponsoring HR 3880, which would increase member business loans. “Both Speaker Hunt and Congressman Schrader have been long-time supporters of credit unions and they have proven that commitment again this last year,” said Pam Leavitt, CUAO vice-president for governmental affairs. Hunt made passing the Public Funds Bill a top priority in the February session. “Speaker Hunt didn’t waver in his support despite the strong rush of opposition from some powerful lobbyists,” said Pat Smith, president/CEO of Unitus Community CU, Portland. The bill will allow government entities to deposit funds such as tax receipts and payroll into credit unions for the first time in the state. “Congressman Schrader has always been there for us,” said Rick Hein, president/CEO of OSU FCU, Corvallis. “To take a leadership role on this important bill, as a freshman in Congress, is quite remarkable.” Schrader was the first member of the Oregon delegation to sign on to the federal legislation to increase the cap on member business loans. “We hope Congressman Schrader will continue to be a strong advocate for the bill in the next Congress and that will help us leverage his support to obtain additional sponsors,” Leavitt said.
