League PACs help secure primary election wins for many credit union-supporting candidates

Public policy has a direct impact on how credit unions do business, making it imperative that the Movement supports legislative leaders who have a strong track record of standing up for the cooperative model. Thanks to the generous support of credit union advocates across Ohio, the League’s Political Action Committees (PACs) had the financial power to significantly help allies win their primary elections, including:

  • Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (D-OH 3), an influential member of U.S. House Financial Services Committee, who was instrumental in helping credit unions with private share insurance gain access to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
  • Representative George Lang (R-West Chester), running for the Ohio Senate, who helped coordinate the Movement’s representation before the  House Economic Recovery Task Force.
  • Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin), running for the Ohio Senate, who supported state-chartered credit union modernization.
  • Representative Gil Blair (D-Weathersfield),  recently appointed to the legislature, who has supported legislation to enact more strident cyber-security laws and provide credit unions regulatory relief.

Thank you for your passionate and consistent support to advance and protect the interests of more than 3 million credit union members. Please contact a member of the League’s legislative and political team for more information on the primary election results.
