Congress Focuses on CUs
Legislation that addresses the credit union industry’s member business lending cap gained noteworthy support recently as
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA, Los Angeles), the ranking member and senior democrat on the House Financial Services
Committee, decided to co-sponsor H.R. 1188 and H.R. 1422.
“Credit unions play a crucial role in providing access to credit and capital for businesses across the country,” Waters said.
“Today, I'm proud to join with representative Ed Royce and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support bipartisan
legislation that responsibly expands credit unions’ ability to lend and, in the process, help businesses succeed.”
