Knollenberg a new CURIA supporter

Knollenberg is a first-time supporter of CURIA this year and his backing brings the number of sponsors to 141. Knollenberg is also known to credit unions for his support of the credit union tax exemption. In a 2004 letter to the Michigan CU League expressing his strong support, the federal lawmaker said the presence of credit unions in a community provides needed financial opportunities to small businesses, families and workers. He noted that credit unions are unlike other financial institutions as not-for-profit financial cooperatives owned by their members and said “(c)learly, credit unions' tax-exempt status should not be repealed or altered."
