    Credit unions hold in-district meeting with Congresswoman Davids

    Nearly 40 credit union advocates serving members in Kansas District 3 met with U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS District 3) at Mazuma Credit Union in Overland Park, Kansas on September 30.  The meeting gave attendees the opportunity to thank Congresswoman Davids in person for her support as sponsor of H.R. 1595, the REAL Banking Act, as Congress had just passed the bill five days before our meeting.  She provided insight on the legislative session, the committees she serves on, and her interest in hearing back from members of the community regarding issues of concern.
