CU Magazine Highlights CUNA, League State Advocacy
Posted October 05, 2015 by Chandler Schuette

The October edition of Credit Union Magazine features an article exploring the collaborative efforts by CUNA and the Leagues to strengthen and protect credit unions at the state level. The article, States Carry Out a Winning Game Plan, sheds light on the state offensive and defensive victories of the 2015 Legislative Session.

Successes include the modernization of state laws to ease the regulatory burdens of credit unions, new powers to conduct promotional savings raffles, fending off tax threats, defeating burdensome interchange fee requirements and protections from potential losses by transportation network company drivers. League initiatives for the 2016 Legislative Session are also explored in the piece.
