“With the current economic environment we have a good story to tell about how credit unions can empower small businesses with new capital, and it’s essential that we keep telling our story until this common-sense, job creating reform passes,” he continued. “I want to thank those who took time to help bring the story of credit union cooperation to Washington.”
