Building on Victories, CA League Engaged 40 of 2,800 Bills in 2023

The California Credit Union League’s 2023 State Legislative Recap is live, where you can view the latest victories and League-engaged bills on behalf of ALL credit unions across the state!

This year’s California Legislative Session was a grueling yet successful period for the League and credit unions. The California State Legislature introduced nearly 2,800 bills, the most seen in a decade.

The League was heavily engaged in more than 40 of these measures and successful on many high-profile pieces of legislation, such as stopping Senate Bill 278 (elder financial abuse liability) and securing a carve-out for Senate Bill 478 (“junk fees”).

The League’s mission has been magnified as it continues focusing on helping credit unions change people’s lives across California and beyond. The League is ready for any challenges 2024 may bring as it looks forward to serving credit union leaders and professionals as they, in turn, work hard serving their members.

Additionally, these state legislative successes and League-engaged bills during the 2023 session represent direct examples of how the League’s victories and mere political presence in Sacramento positively impacts ALL credit unions across California. These supported, opposed, neutral, or “watched” pieces of legislation include 23 California State Assembly bills, one California Assembly concurrent resolution, and 17 California State Senate bills.

“Thank you for helping us foster a successful legislative session by attending the California Government Relations Rally (GRR) last April, as well as making important phone calls to our state lawmakers’ offices,” said Robert Wilson, senior vice president of state government affairs for the League. “With your continued support all year long, we always look forward to building upon our yearly victories to serve your credit union and your members. We look forward to engaging legislators in Sacramento with you in 2024!”
