WALLINGFORD, Conn. (6/4/08)--Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell recently signed into law an act that would allow credit unions to open temporary offices in the state in an emergency, according to the Credit Union League of Connecticut (CULC). The act will be effective Oct. 1. An emergency is defined as: conditions that arise from enemy action or threat of enemy action, from riot or threat of riot, or from extreme weather conditions, said Kelly Ramsey Fuhlbrigge, league vice president of government relations. “This is an important act because it will allow our state commissioner to act quickly in the event of a disaster, so that credit union members can have seamless access to their credit union services in emergency situations,” said Tony Emerson, CULC president/CEO.
