<p>WASHINGTON-According to Federal Election Commission reports, the Credit Union Legislative Action Council of CUNA (CULAC) slowed its outflow of funds to federal candidates for 2002 elections. CULAC only recorded $70,346.65 in disbursements for the month of November, compared with more than $213,000 in October and nearly $112,000 in September in the midst of the September 11 events. In all, CULAC has given out more than $1.15 million in 2001, on track to top the nearly $2 million in the last election cycle. On the other hand, CULAC took in more than $117,000 last month-beating October’s numbers of approximately $103,000-for a total of $234,565.87 on hand at the end of November. Candidates receiving CULAC’s top contributions include Democratic Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed ($5,000) and Representative Heather Wilson (R-N.M.) ($5,000). Newcomers John Boozman (R-Ariz.) and Jon Porter (R-Nev.) also received $5,000 each for their House races. Katherine Harris, a Florida Republican made famous by the presidential election conflicts last year as the Florida Secretary of State, also received $5,000 for her bid for the House.</p>
