<p>PEWAUKEE, Wis. – Discussions on the Financial Modernization 2001 bill, compromise legislation supported by credit unions, the Wisconsin Bankers Association and the Community Bankers of Wisconsin, will headline the agenda at the Wisconsin Credit Union League’s upcoming Government Affairs Conference, January 30-31. The legislation, Assembly Bill 299, was passed by the State Assembly last year. The session adjourns this year March 14, so there is a big push for the Senate to pass the measure by then. Invitations have been sent to all members of the state Senate and Assembly Financial Institutions committees, and WCUL Director of Government Affairs Georgia Maxwell said more than half have accepted and are expected to address attendees. A breakfast with the governor and reception with all legislators and their staff is also scheduled, as are visits to the state capital to meet with legislators and a luncheon with Ginger Larsen, director of the Office of Credit Unions of the Department of Financial Institutions. Other speakers expected include WCUL CEO Brett Thompson and grassroots political consultant Buddy Gill who will speak on CUNA’s Rennaissance Commission. CUNA Manager, Senate Legislative Affairs John Dimos is expected to give a federal issues update, focusing on bankruptcy legislation.</p>
