SAN ANTONIO -- Despite setbacks in the quest to get an increase in the cap on member business loans, CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney said prospects are "not dead yet."
The Credit Union Association of Oregon and the Washington Credit Union League announced plans Thursday to merge, effective next January.
CUNA and state leagues said last week their massive lobbying effort to oppose the Durbin interchange amendment triggered an estimated 35,000 letters and e-mail messages to U.S. senators, but that was apparently dwarfed by retailers' counter campaign.
