Vote on S.2155 Looms- Contact Your Reps and Tell Them to Vote Yes
Thanks to the efforts of credit union advocates, our Credit Union Associations, and CUNA, the vote for passage of significant regulatory relief is visible on the horizon. Mountain West Credit Union Association encourages all credit unions to contact their legislators in the House for another push to ensure they vote yes when the bill comes to the floor.
On Tuesday, May 8th, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said the House will vote on the bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155). During his press conference, Ryan also said the House and Senate are working on additional regulatory relief legislation.
Here’s how you can help:
- Contact your rep. CUNA’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation Relief website makes it easy.
- Post your support on social media. Tag your representative and add #CommonSenseReg.
- Ask your friends, coworkers, and members to do the same.
We urge all credit unions to contact their representatives in Congress to vote yes on this substantial regulatory reform.
CUNA and Mountain West Credit Union Association are encouraging credit unions to sign up for and use the Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation website.
By working together, we’ll achieve real, significant regulation relief, so we can better serve our members and improve our communities.
