This week, America’s Credit Unions remains engaged on Capitol Hill as lawmakers near the Jan. 19 deadline to secure government funding for four appropriations measures, including Agriculture, Energy, Veterans, Transportation and Housing programs, amongst others. Funding for eight other appropriations bills that fund other areas of the government expires Feb. 2. Congress released a proposal over the weekend that would extend some funding through March 1 and the rest through March 8.
Of note, America’s Credit Unions Sunday kicked off the Credit Union Board of Directors Conference, where attendees will gain the knowledge and insight needed to develop forward-focused policies that improve the financial lives of members and the communities their credit union serves.
