The report shows that Michigan has had 3,582 contacts, mostly through the website, donttaxmycreditunion.org that CUNA set up for the campaign.
Across the nation, nearly 207,000 contacts have been made with Congress on the issue.
Contacting Capitol Hill is critical for the credit union movement as Congress considers a sweeping revamp of the federal tax code. On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that leaders of the Senate Finance Committee said they planned to start with a “blank slate” as the rewrite the country’s complex tax code.
“We need credit unions to reach out to their members to ask them to contact their lawmakers,” Adams said. “Even if your congressman is a known supporter of credit unions, send him or her a letter thanking them for their support.
“This battle is real and it’s critical that we tell Congress how important credit unions are to the national economy and the local communities they serve.”
