Credit union trade associations are praising legislation introduced Tuesday by House Financial Services Committee members Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) and David Scott (D-Ga.) that would protect credit unions from frivolous lawsuits that occur when required physical fee disclosures are removed from ATMs.
