This week: Congress heads home, NAFCU continues bold advocacy strategy

CapitolSenate and House lawmakers are in their home states and districts this week after sending President Joe Biden a continuing resolution to fund the government on Thursday. The President signed the legislation ahead of the Friday deadline, averting a government shutdown.
