New CUNA tool spotlights 2014 legislative outlook
WASHINGTON (1/14/14)--Credit unions are watching as the U.S. House and Senate begin their work for 2014, and the latest edition of the Credit Union National Association's Legislative Update Webinar breaks down vital information on these congressional concerns into an easy to access and understand format.

Topics tackled in this month's edition include:
  • Data security;
  • Patent reform;
  • Housing finance reform;
  • Regulatory relief; and
  • Tax reform.
CUNA Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan, in the webinar, updates participants on last year's top happenings regarding these topics, and the 2014 prospects for possible legislation to address these issues.

"The legislative process is a marathon, not a sprint," Donovan emphasizes in the webinar.

The monthly webinars are 15 to 20 minutes in length, and focus on current Capitol Hill events and how CUNA is working on the biggest issues for credit unions.

CUNA staff is also preparing a special edition of the update to prepare credit unions for the upcoming CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference. The GAC edition will include an overview of the issues that CUNA will be discussing during the conference, and key message points to deliver to members of Congress during Capitol Hill meetings.

The special edition pre-GAC webinar is scheduled to be posted in early February.

Donovan has also provided a brief preview of this week's legislative outlook in the CUNA Legislative Update.
