Government Affairs

Tell our members of Congress: "Vote YES on S. 2231/H.R. 1418"




Take action now to help pass credit unions' federal jobs legislation, which would increase credit unions’ member business lending (MBL) Cap from 12.25% to 27.5% of total assets.


A vote in Congress is expected during the Lame Duck session, between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We will be competing with hundreds of other issues fighting for attention, so please prepare an action plan now for this small window of time to ensure our voices are heard!
