GAC Roundup: Veteran Reporter Schieffer and Various Legislators Address Gathering of CU Advocates

WASHINGTON – On the final day at the Washington Convention Center, CUNA Governmental Affairs (GAC) attendees heard from veteran CBSNews reporter Bob Schieffer and a parade of legislators.

Schieffer addressed the effect that the “digital age” has had on the delivery of information and how people are connected.

Attendees also heard from legislators, who brought messages of credit union support to the stage. Their message was loud and clear: They are hearing from credit unions about regulatory burden and understanding the impact.

Tuesday’s speakers included Rep. Denny Heck (D-Wash.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), while Wednesday’s lineup included Reps. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.), Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.), Ed Royce (R-Calif.), Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.), Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).

Hill visits started in earnest as credit union advocates made their way to Capitol Hill to express the need for regulatory relief.
