Grassroots Advocacy Plays Huge Role
The California Credit Union League won a significant victory last week in the state legislature with the defeat of Senate Bill
308 on bankruptcy (authored by Sen. Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont) in a reconsideration vote of the entire Assembly.
SB 308 would raise the amount debtors can claim as exemptions in bankruptcy, leaving credit unions and their members

charged off more than $77 million in bankruptcy last year.

Grassroots Advocacy efforts connects you to your government. Whether issues arise at the Federal or State level, you can be an advocate for your credit union by participating in our programs. Using traditional Grassroots tactics, the Leagues connects you to our cause.
Political Action Committees are organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates, representing business, labor or ideological interests.
If your credit union would like talking points for an issue, such as member business lending (MBL) or supplemental capital, the Leagues' Consumer Advocacy Department can develop one to suit your particular needs. Please contact Public Affairs and Consumer Advocacy Specialist Tina Ramos-Ingold at email@example.com
