State Legislative Issues

While most of the laws and regulations that impact credit union operations are federal in nature, state law and regulation do play important roles, as well. Each year, your League tracks and monitors dozens of bills and proposals that have the potential to impact your credit union and its members.

In fact, many state legislatures, including the Virginia General Assembly, now wrestle with legislative issues more often thought of as federal issues, including consumer privacy protections and data breaches.

That's why your League remains ever-vigilant in monitoring issues at the state level and in working to shape a legislative and regulatory environment that empowers credit unions to thrive.
