Kansas & Missouri Credit Unions Represented at Congressional Swearing-In

Congressman Roger Marshall

On Tuesday, January 3, 2017, members of the 115th Congress were sworn in on Capitol Hill.  The Kansas and Missouri delegations included U.S. Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS District 1), the newest member of the Kansas delegation.  Heartland Credit Union Association (HCUA) executive director of Advocacy, Amy McLard, traveled to Capitol Hill on January 3-4, and met with Missouri and Kansas lawmakers and staff in all four U.S. Senate and 12 U.S. House offices. Several lawmakers held open houses or receptions to welcome visitors. 

"The Congressional swearing-in is an excellent time to touch base with our delegations and reiterate top credit union priorities – regulatory relief, data security and the importance of the credit union tax status," said McLard. "With a new Congress and administration, we are discussing these priorities early in anticipation of potential legislation and action."

Credit union advocates from Kansas and Missouri will join counterparts from across the country in Washington, D.C. February 26-March 2 for the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC). Hill visits will take place during the GAC on March 1-2.
