This week: Congress returns, works to avoid partial government shutdown

This week, lawmakers return to Washington with plans to tackle some government funding items set to expire March 1 in order to avoid a partial government shutdown. America’s Credit Unions will continue to keep credit union industry advocacy priorities top-of-mind.
