WASHINGTON-CUNA has issued a “call to action” urging all credit union league presidents, league governmental affairs and political specialists, and other credit union leaders to voice support for final passage of bankruptcy reform legislation. During a meeting with House Judiciary Committee staff members, the staffers suggested that credit unions use their grassroots network to build support for the legislation in the remaining days before Congress returns from recess. CUNA President and CEO Dan Mica urged the league and credit union leaders to deliver several key messages to House members in Town Hall or District meetings during the August congressional recess. “This may be the last real opportunity to get the bankruptcy bill through the 107th Congress,” he wrote. Credit unions were asked to emphasize that the Bankruptcy Abuse Reform Bill is credit unions’ top legislative priority; that since the legislation was introduced during the 105th Congress, credit union members and credit unions have lost almost $3 billion; and that lawmakers should vote `yes’ on the rule to bring the Bankruptcy Conference Report to the floor, as well as on the bill itself, and send it to the president’s desk.
