FARMERS BRANCH, Texas – The Texas Credit Union League has joined the handful of leagues that have the capability of accepting online PAC contributions. The Texas League launched a Web site – https://www.tcul.coop/Contribute_Online.html – for contributions to its Political Action Committee.

In 2004, TCUL PAC estimates it will raise more than $200,000 which it said is a new record.
