HOUSTON (9/9/13)--Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) told Texas credit unions here that, in his experience on Capitol Hill, credit unions are the "gold standard" when it comes advocacy efforts, and he complimented the group on their advocacy efforts in the past.
 
During a meeting with the credit union and Cornerstone Credit Union League representatives during the congressional district work break, which ends this week, Brady met with the credit unions to discuss issues of interest to the credit union system and give an update on what Congress may do this session. Federal tax policy was one of the hot topics discussed.
 
Brady briefed the group on the tax reform issue, providing an overview of the options and challenges facing the Congress.
 
Brady reminded the group that the U.S. House Ways & Means Committee, which is responsible for tax-related issues, wants to move forward on tax reform this year. He strongly encouraged the group to stay in touch with him and other members of Congress about the issues of concern to the credit union system. 
 
The Credit Union National Association and credit union leagues nationwide are planning to welcome back Congress tomorrow with another #DontTaxTuesday promotion. Round two of the Don't Tax My Credit Union campaign will provide yet another opportunity to engage credit union staff, volunteers and members, and to let Congress and Washington know that a tax on credit unions is a tax on 98 million members.
