League Continues Outreach to Lawmakers on Looming Federal Government Shutdown

There’s little movement in Washington on the looming federal government shutdown. Your League identified a potential federal government shutdown as a key issue for CUs and members as we met with lawmakers during a series of Legislative Receptions across the state this summer and during our Hike The Hill events last week. We’ve continued outreach to lawmakers this week, outlining the hardships members will face should a federal government shutdown occur.

League, CUs Continue Critical Fight Against Interchange Legislation; Email Sens. Warner, Kaine Today

The Senate co-sponsors of interchange legislation attempted to rev up support for the measure this week with a press conference and a show of support from small business groups. We continue to push back against efforts to move the interchange bill through ongoing engagement with our Congressional delegation and through our grassroots campaign that asks credit union supporters to write Sens. Warner and Kaine in opposition to the interchange measure. We appreciate your campaign participation to date, which has helped us generate 748 emails. Keep up the good work by urging other credit union champions to log on to our Advocacy Action Center and email the senators today!
