July 16, 2012 – Rep. Gary Peters, D-Mich., a House Financial Services Committee member and a cosponsor of legislation that would increase the current member business lending cap to 27.5 percent of total assets, is the latest lawmaker to join NAFCU’s 2012 Congressional Caucus speaker slate.
Peters, who also serves on the House Small Business Committee, is an original cosponsor of H.R. 1418, the House MBL cap-lift bill.
Joining Peters at NAFCU’s 2012 Congressional Caucus will be Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, vice chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and a member of the President’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, political commentators Jason Cabel Roe and Jimmy Williams – both regular faces on Fox News and MSNBC, respectively, and Mark Calabria, director of financial regulation studies at the Cato Institute.
The 2012 Caucus, one week after the end of Congress’ August recess, will provide participants the opportunity to hear directly from lawmakers and regulators about issues affecting their operations and memberships. Between the general sessions, attendees will meet with lawmakers and staffs in their Capitol Hill offices to discuss what impact this year’s legislation on consumer financial services, small-business lending, tax reform and more will have on credit union constituents back home.
The NAFCU Congressional Caucus is headquartered at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington. Early registration discounts end this Friday; register now.
