ARLINGTON, Va.-A number of key members of Congress will address NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus next month. Senate Banking Committee Member Tom Carper (D-Del.), who was instrumental in herding bankruptcy reform through the legislative process in the Senate, and House Financial Services Committee Member Artur Davis (D-Ala.) were the latest added to the speaker lineup. NAFCU plans on more than 400 credit union representatives in town for the event. These two lawmakers join fellow Financial Services Committee Members Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), author of the Net Worth Amendment for Credit Unions Act (H.R. 1042), and Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.), co-author of the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (H.R. 2317), and Ranking Committee Member Barney Frank (D-Mass.). Treasury Secretary John Snow is also speaking, as well as NCUA Chairman JoAnn Johnson and Board Member Debbie Matz. “We’ve gotten lots of calls from Senate and Hill staffers asking us what’s going on in September because they’re getting calls from all their credit union people who are trying to set up meetings and we know our members are active and they’re taking their job seriously in coming to Caucus,” NAFCU Director of Political Affairs Murray Chanow said.
