GAC closes CURIA backers increase
WASHINGTON (3/10/08)—Reps. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) and Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) added their official support to the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (CURIA, H.R. 1537) just as the four-day Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference—complete with grassroots Hill visits--ended. The addition of the two names brings the total of official CURIA supporters in the House to 147. Credit union representatives from both South Carolina and New Jersey were among the hundreds flooding Capitol Hill to garner support for CURIA and other credit union issues. Also, it was at the CUNA GAC that Sen. Mary Landrieu unveiled her plan to introduce a Senate version or CURIA. The general visibility of the cornerstone credit union legislation was acutely heightened last week, between Landrieu’s announcement, the credit union Hill visits, and a comprehensive House Financial Services Committee hearing on credit union regulatory relief issues, which highlighted CURIA. Use the resource link below for CURIA details and a full list of co-sponsors.
