Top lobbyists list Mica effective for CUs
WASHINGTON (5/26/09)--Dan Mica, president/CEO of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), remains on the list of Washington's top lobbyists named annually by The Hill newspaper. It’s the seventh year in a row that Mica has been named to the list. The Hill noted Mica’s long and successful history of advocating for the credit union movement: “Mica is a former member (of Congress) who has been pushing credit union interests effectively for more than a decade.” Under Mica’s watch in 2008, credit unions witnessed such developments as:
* A delay in an ultimately unsuccessful bill that would give merchants an antitrust exemption to negotiate interchange fees; * Regulatory relief measures for credit unions; and * The beginning efforts that resulted in the corporate credit union stabilization plan signed into law just last week.
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.
