Final push for Action Alerts on regulatory restructuring
05/10/2010 05:00 pm
The LSCU Governmental Affairs team sent out a number of Action Alerts last week asking credit unions to let their Senators know how
S. 3217 will affect how they do business.
Many have already called or utilized CapWiz and the LSCU appreciates those efforts. However, with the final push coming this week, the LSCU is asking credit unions to invite their membership to participate in this grassroots effort. An amendment favoring the merchants on this issue continues to gain momentum, and the LSCU needs a critical mass of communication from credit unions and credit union members conveying their position.
A pre-written letter is available for credit unions at the Credit Union Grassroots Action Center,

Senator Richard Shelby – has stated we do not need to call him as he is with us on the amendments. Senator Jeff Sessions – 202.224.4124
Senator Bill Nelson - 202.224.4124 Senator George LeMieux – 202.224.3041
