The League, along with representatives from several of Alabama's state chartered credit unions and Sarah Moore, the new head of the Alabama Credit Union Administration, joined Gov. Robert Bentley for a ceremonial bill signing at Alabama's Historic State Capitol. The signing took place in the Old House Chamber. Bentley, who had officially signed the legislation updating the Alabama Credit Union Act back in April, thanked credit unions for their help in passing this important legislation.
HB 165 by Rep. Greg Wren (R-Montgomery) and Sen. Slade Blackwell (R-Mountain Brook) was a much needed update to the Act and was the first piece of stand alone credit union legislation passed in Alabama in more than two decades.
