Paul, Miller, Ross at Congressional Caucus
Sept. 6, 2013 – Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Reps. Gary Miller, R-Calif., and Dennis Ross, R-Fla., have joined the Sept. 11 speaker slate for NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus, “Storming the Hill,” in Washington.
Paul serves on the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. He is a lead cosponsor of S. 968, the “Small Business Lending Enhancement Act of 2013.” The bill would promote small business growth and economic development by increasing the member business lending cap credit unions face. He is also a key leader in the Senate debate on the situation in Syria, which will be addressed in Senate action next week.
Miller, vice chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, introduced a NAFCU-sought credit union regulatory relief bill, H.R. 2572, the “Regulatory Relief for Credit Unions Act of 2013,” which would help advance the association’s five-point plan for comprehensive regulatory relief for credit unions. The centerpiece of the legislation is a risk-based capital proposal supported by the credit union industry.
Ross is a member of the House Financial Services Subcommittees on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises, and Housing and Insurance, and is involved in the current debate on housing finance reform.
NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus begins Sunday at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel. Credit unions participating will hear directly from lawmakers and will have the chance to meet with them on Capitol Hill to discuss issues that matter most to the credit union industry.
Political analyst and columnist Paul Begala is the Caucus keynote speaker. Congressional Caucus general sessions begin Sept. 9. All NAFCU members and nonmembers may register.
