Association President/CEO William J. Mellin, Vice President of Governmental Affairs Amy Kramer and Senior Vice President/General Counsel Michael Lanotte discussed Congress' proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency, overdraft protections, credit unions' member business lending cap and a controversy surrounding interchange with Tonko. "The congressman listened to and is considering credit unions' point of view on the issues we reviewed, especially in relation to interchange," Mellin said. "We will continue to follow up with his staff on all matters to keep the credit union perspective front and center." "District meetings are extremely beneficial," added Kramer. "They present a unique occasion to capture the ear of our legislative leaders when they are away from the hectic daily routine they experience within the halls of Congress."
