    Tired of Banker Whining?

    Had enough of bankers’ whining about credit unions?  The Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) created a flyer to counter the many handouts distributed by the American Bankers Association and Independent Community Bankers of America.  Both organizations are papering Capitol Hill with misinformation about S. 2231, the Credit Union Small Business Jobs bill. MCUA distributed the flyer to Missouri’s U.S. Senators.

    JOBS Act Becomes Law: Tell Senators “Now It’s Time to Help Main Street”

    President Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act on April 5.  The new law includes language that helps the banks, including a provision that raised the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registration threshold for banks.   The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) is touting this as a legislative win, which allows more banks to change their tax status to Subchapter S and reduces their regulatory requirements.
