Roughly 30 advocates from credit unions across California and Nevada Hiked the Hill in early September to meet with their members of Congress. Credit union representatives pressed the message of Don’t Tax My Credit Union on Capitol Hill, which was well-received by members of the California and Nevada congressional delegations. Messages about the need for regulatory relief measures, such as member business lending (H.R. 688), were also on the agenda. Advocates also held a private fundraiser for Sacramento-area first-term Congressman Ami Bera, who previously served on the board of directors at American River HealthPro CU.
