2020 advocacy agenda: reducing regulatory burdens

Published by: Kim Connor

January 23, 2020 | Government Affairs

We’re living in a new decade, but the League’s mission remains the same with a laser focus on helping credit unions grow and serve their membership by reducing regulatory burdens. Your League is committed to a robust strategy to tackle this and other state and federal advocacy priorities in 2020.

To provide guidance for loan services and collection officers, we amended House Bill 38 to clarify that legal notice must be sent to a borrower only before a foreclosure action is made on a loan secured by a residential piece of property. We need you to take action by contacting members of the General Assembly to help ensure passage, which is easy to do by submitting or customizing a pre-written message on VoterVoice. Additionally, to alleviate burdensome and complex regulations surrounding marijuana related businesses (MRBs), we’re encouraging Ohio Senators Rob Portman (R) and Sherrod Brown (D) to support The Safe Banking Act. Action on this important piece of legislation can also be made through VoterVoice.

If you would like to learn how you or your credit union can help with our efforts, we encourage you to contact Senior Vice President of Advocacy Emily Leite , Director of Legislative and Political Affairs Cory Fleming, or Manager of Legislative and Political Advocacy Andrew Canan.
