League Preps for Hike the Hill

The Nebraska Credit Union League and credit union advocates/representatives from each of Nebraska’s three Congressional Districts, are preparing for this year’s Hike the Hill in mid-July.  The aim of Hike the Hill is to advocate the position of Nebraska credit unions on key legislative and regulatory issues to our Congressmen, Senators, and federal regulators.

The five advocates traveling the nation’s capital for the two-day Hike will meet with each of Nebraska’s three Congressman and two U.S. Senators as well as NCUA Board Chairman Mark McWatters.  During the Congressional office visits, the issues focus will include reducing regulations and exempting credit unions from the CFPB’s rules, protecting the credit union federal tax exemption from any tax reform bill that would be introduced, and holding merchants accountable for data breaches and the increasing costs of those breaches on credit unions and their members.  During their visit with NCUA Board Chairman Mark McWatters they will focus on examination fairness, credit union merger proposed rule, the lawsuit on NCUA’s field of membership rule, and the Stabilization Fund.

In addition to the five Hill visits and visit with the NCUA, the advocates will also meet with representatives from the Credit Union National Association and attend the Nebraska Congressional Delegation’s “Nebraska Breakfast” that is held on Capitol Hill each Wednesday that Congress is in session.
