New Uncertainty in Washington, But League Remains Focused on Derailing CU-Opposed Measures

The situation in Washington remains unchanged. The expected vote for a House Speaker has yet to materialize, but we’re continuing to engage with lawmakers and their offices. Once business resumes in the House, it’s possible we’ll see a flurry of activity around the appropriations measures given that the temporary funding for the government ends in a month. We remain concerned that credit union-opposed measures might advance via one of the appropriations bills – with the Credit Card Competition Act (interchange bill) topping that list of concerns. You can aid our advocacy efforts by emailing lawmakers today via our Advocacy Action Center.
