Royce Camp join GAC lineup
WASHINGTON (1/27/09)—Two long-time Republican friends of credit unions from Capitol Hill, Reps. Ed Royce and Dave Camp, are scheduled to address the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) 2009 Governmental Affairs Conference in February. Royce, from California, is well known to credit unions as a primary sponsor to credit union legislation such as the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (CURIA) and other regulatory relief measures. Royce will address the GAC during the morning general session on closing day of the conference Feb. 26. The GAC this year begins on Feb. 22. Camp, from Michigan, has weighed in as a CURIA co-sponsor and was recently selected by the GOP to be ranking member on the important tax-policy committee, Ways and Means. He replaced Rep. Jim McCrery (R-La.), a member not known as a credit union supporter. Camp is also slated for Feb. 26. Royce and Camp are just part of a top of the line list of key speakers, including House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), its ranking member, Rep. Spencer Bachus (R_Ala.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), formerly head the panel's subcommittee on financial institutions and consumer credit and now chairman of the Joint Economic Committee. Also among those scheduled to speak are House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.).
