CURIA Supporters Grow to 93, CUNA, Leagues to Spread Awareness
WASHINGTON -- Freshman Democrat Christopher Carney (Pa.) joined the growing list of co-sponsors to the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act prior to the congressional Memorial Day recess.
With primary sponsor Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) that brings the list in the first session of the 110th Congress up to 93. Over the two years of the last Congress, the bill attracted 125 co-sponsors. With the addition of Carney and others, credit unions have been able to rally 10 co-sponsors around CURIA who had not previously been on the bill, including new and returning members of Congress. CURIA had lost 11 co-sponsors from the previous Congress due to retirement, lost re-elections, representatives running for higher office or death.
