Mica named a top Washington lobbyist
WASHINGTON (5/6/08)--Dan Mica, president/CEO of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), has again been named as one of Washington’s top lobbyists by The Hill newspaper’s list. This is the sixth consecutive year Mica has been named to the list. The Hill noted that Mica is working to get legislation passed that would improve the regulation of credit unions. The Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (CURIA), supported by CUNA, is H.R. 1537 in the House and was introduced last week in the Senate by Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) as S. 2957. Mica also has spoken out against a Treasury blueprint that would place credit unions and banks under the same regulator and charter. Mica garnered press attention from major media outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal, CongressDaily and Politico. The Hill’s list of top lobbyists is created based on conversations with aides, other lobbyists and members of Congress. The newspaper covers lobbying and Capitol Hill activities. It is read largely by congressional members and lobbying organizations (News Now May 4, 2007). Other lobbyists to make this year’s list include: Steve O’Connor, Mortgage Bankers Association; Ed Yingling, American Bankers Association; Dan Berger, National Association of Federal Credit Unions; and Camden Fine, Independent Community Bankers of America.
