PSECU Does its Part in Durbin Blitz by Hosting Lawmaker
In a follow-up to the ongoing industry campaign fighting the Durbin amendment, the $3.7 billion PSECU hosted a leading CU backer, U.S. Rep. Tim Holden, a Schuylkill Democrat, at its headquarters meeting with the CU board and employees.
It was the first formal visit by the local Congressman to PSECU in seven years, said a spokesman.
“Tim has been a friend to the industry and a co-sponsor of the new interchange delay bill and we thought it a good idea to invite him to the headquarters,” said the spokesman.
During the day, the congressman discussed with board members and senior managers a number of topics including protecting the credit union tax exemption and congressional reapportionment.
Apart from Holden, PSECU has also extended visit invitations to U.S. Rep. Todd Russell Platts (R-York County, 19th District) as well as U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-Centre County, 5th District). Thompson was invited to stop in at PSECU’s facility in State College, Pa., encompassing his district.
