Credit Unions Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of H.R. 1151
Posted August 07, 2018 by CUNA Advocacy

Yesterday, CUNA's President and CEO, Jim Nussle published an op-ed in the Credit Union Journal celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the enactment of H.R. 1151, the Credit Union Membership Access Act.  As a Member of Congress, Jim was a proud supporter of the legislation because he understood it was necessary for credit unions to be able to continue to serve their members and their communities.

“Today, I am even prouder of the work credit unions have done since to take advantage of H.R. 1151 – growing the credit union movement to more than $1 trillion in assets, expanding service to more than 110 million Americans and delivering billions of dollars of financial benefit every year.” -- Jim Nussle
