WASHINGTON-The credit union lobby has boasted 10 new co-sponsors for the Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act (H.R. 2317) since Congress has come back in session. Mary Bono (R-Calif.), Sam Farr (D-Calif.), Wayne Gilchrest (R-Md.), Grace Napolitano (D-Calif.), Brian Higgins (D-N.Y.), Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.), Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), Don Young (R-Alaska), Mike Sodrel (R-Ind.) and Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) have added their names to the list since the August recess. Credit union lobbyists had said previously that they were hoping for a hearing on the bill this year, but issues surrounding Hurricane Katrina could preempt that, though they have argued that CURIA’s provisions could help credit unions weather the adverse effects of Katrina. Credit unions are hoping for at least 100 co-sponsors by year-end.
