Tennessee League Visits D.C. Ahead of GAC

Your League was in Washington, D.C., yesterday meeting with the Tennessee delegation on issues facing credit unions on the national level.

We discussed the Credit Card Competition Act and the potential hearing on the bill on April 9 in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Last week, Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Jack Reed (D-RI) announced they would co-sponsor the Credit Card Competition Act ahead of the hearing. We encourage you to continue to educate your membership about the negative impacts of CCCA. Here’s the latest ad from America’s Credit Unions that is being served to consumers across Tennessee.

On the House side of the Hill, we discussed CDFI modernization and reform, namely the CDFI Fund Transparency Act and new legislation to give tax credits to businesses that invest in CDFIs. We continued discussion on overdraft protection and credit union board modernization and everyone in Washington looks forward to seeing our Tennessee credit unions next month at the GAC!
