Ohio lawmakers hear message CUs safe sound secure
COLUMBUS, Ohio (4/2/09)--Nearly 80 Ohio credit union leaders converged on the state Capitol Square Tuesday to share insight into credit union initiatives with their state legislators during Credit Union Day at the Statehouse.
Rose Bartolomucci, assistant superintendent of credit unions for the Ohio Division of Financial Insitutions, addresses credit unions at Ohio's Credit Union Day at the Statehouse.
In all, they conducted 82 meetings with Ohio General Assembly members. Discussions centered on mortgage moratoriums and allowing credit unions to accept municipal deposits. Attendees also heard top state legislative and political leaders discuss their agendas. Speakers included House Speaker Armond Budish (D-Beachwood), Senate Finance and Institutions Chair John Carey (R-Wellston), state Treasurer Kevin Boyce, and state Auditor Mary Taylor. Credit union regulators from the Ohio Division of Financial Institutions also addressed the group. "We have great credit union leadership in the state of Ohio, and they understand the importance of building relationships with their local leaders," said Ohio Credit Union League General Counsel John F. Kozlowski. "With so many pieces of legislation focused on financial institutions, we need to make sure our state leaders understand that our credit unions are safe, sound, secure, and ready to lend," he said. A reception, sponsored by OCUL Services Corp., was held after the meetings.
