In discussions with lawmakers, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) lobbyists continue to build opposition to a bill that would give merchants an antitrust exemption to negotiate interchange fees. During a DNC event yesterday, MasterCard International General Counsel Noah Hanft pointed out that CUNA was very effective with the interchange message and thanked the association and credit unions for the efforts. At another meeting, CUNA lobbyists Michele Johnson urged Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) to include credit unions in any public hearings on the interchange bill.
