CUNA Engaged with FCC, SBA, Cybersecurity Hearings This Week

WASHINGTON – Both chambers of Congress are in session this week, and CUNA will be tracking a number of hearings of interest for credit unions.

CUNA plans to send a letter for the record for two separate hearings on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The letters will reinforce CUNA’s concerns with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which CUNA believes could negatively impact credit unions that need to contact members with important account information.

The first will be conducted by the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on communications and technology on the FCC’s budget, the second will be conducted by the Senate Commerce Committee on oversight of the agency. Both will take place Wednesday.

Other hearings CUNA is tracking include:

  • Wednesday, 11 a.m., House Small Business Committee hearing titled “Small Business Cybersecurity: Federal Resources and Coordination;”
  • Thursday, 10 a.m., House Financial Services subcommittee on housing and insurance, hearing titled “Flood Insurance Reform: Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Perspective;” and
  • Thursday, 2 p.m., House Small Business subcommittee on investigations, oversight and regulations hearing titled “An Overview of the Small Business Administration’s 7(a) Loan Program.”
