While your credit union is busy taking care of its members, the League regularly heads to the Ohio Statehouse to advocate for your ability to serve them more efficiently and effectively. This past week two League-priority bills received hearings in the Ohio House and Ohio Senate.
The League advocated for House Bill 116 in the Ohio Senate Judiciary Committee to close a glaring legal loophole that bad actors exploit to access sensitive data and information without penalty. By creating criminal penalties and providing civil restitution recourse, your credit union and its members are better protected from any attempted and identifiable breaches. The League also advocated for House Bill 646 in the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee to create stronger consumer protections for residential Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE). Residential PACE loans. As residential PACE lending programs become available in Ohio, the state must require reasonable, fair, and equitable mortgage loan and consumer protection practices that are currently practiced by and required of credit unions.
While the League will continue to monitor both House Bill 116 and House Bill 646 for additional movement, you can help us secure passage for both by taking a few moments to contact your Ohio legislators through VoterVoice.
