Below is a list of current federal issues.
Data Security Act - HR 2205/S 961
The Data Security Act is a new precedent for a congressional committee to endorse CUNA’s view that card-accepting vendors and the credit unions that issue them be held to the same security standard.
Member Business Lending Expansion - HR 1188/HR 1422
This especially vital initiative would reform the lending cap (currently set at a low 12.5%) to more than double in size, which would allow willing credit unions to make significantly more capital available to Michigan businesses.
Tax Reform - HR 4377
Current tax reform legislation introduced by California Congressman Devin Nunes would lay a foundation for tax reform while keeping the credit union federal income tax exemption in place. As several tax studies have shown, the value of the credit union tax exemption far outweighs the cost, benefiting consumers in the marketplace.
