WASHINGTON (1/19/11)--Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) is the latest member of Congress who will speak at the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) this February. Capito late last year was named chair of the House financial institutions and consumer credit subcommittee, which will cover financial institutions, federal deposit insurance, and safety and soundness. Capito, who has served in Congress since 2001, has backed regulatory relief for credit unions and has pledged to support the credit union tax exemption. She was backed by the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) during her successful 2010 reelection campaign. Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), and Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) are currently slated to speak at the GAC. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau architect Elizabeth Warren and co-authors of The New York Times No. 1 best-seller "Game Change" Mark Halperin and John Heilemann are also scheduled to address GAC attendees. The GAC will also feature keynote speeches from actor and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals co-founder John Schneider and "Miracle on the Hudson" pilot Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III.
