Publicly Share Your Statement

Your voice on key issues is important. The best messenger with policy makers in Washington is the credit union who is out there every day trying to meet the needs of their members. Having NAFCU members explain how decisions in DC impact credit unions is incredibly powerful. We are asking you to share a statement NAFCU can publicly use with media, members of Congress and others to support or oppose legislation as we work to level the playing field for credit unions—because we want you to grow and thrive.

SEEKING: Quotes and statements about how the new interchange bill will hurt you and your members

New legislation in the Senate would essentially impose a back-door price control on credit card interchange fees.  While the bill seeks to limit these new requirements to only institutions over $100 billion, the history of the failed exemption in the Durbin amendment has shown that these price controls will negatively impact all institutions. Review NAFCU’s Interchange Advocacy Page for more information on our long-standing opposition to federal price controls on interchange.
