LSCU honors Bachus, Hastings as lawmakers of the year
WASHINGTON (2/27/14)--The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) honored U.S. Reps. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) and Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) as its Lawmakers of the Year Tuesday.

"Reps. Bachus and Hastings have shown, through their actions, that they understand the issues facing credit unions," said LSCU President/CEO Patrick La Pine. "Each has co-sponsored multiple pieces of legislation that will help credit union members."
 
Both consistently meet in-person with credit union advocates throughout the year and are open to listening to real-world stories, La Pine added (eSignal Feb. 26).
 
Hastings, who is a member of Sunrise, Fla.-based BrightStar CU, said he was humbled by receiving the award from people who really are on the ground in the business of credit.

Hastings has co-sponsored legislation for supplemental forms of capital, privacy notification reform and member business lending.
 
Longtime supporter Bachus said he didn't think there's ever been a greater need for credit unions. There is such a need for a local financial institution "where you know the people and they know you," he said.

He also is a co-sponsor of supplemental capital and privacy notification reform legislation.

The reception was held in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association's 2014 Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.
