With the 2021-22 Minnesota legislative session now underway, legislators from both parties and in both bodies have begun introducing proposed bills. Each year, Senators and Representatives draft thousands of proposals to be considered for adoption into law. Well over 90% do not get adopted and a majority of those will never even receive a hearing in a committee. Nonetheless, tracking introduced legislation to identify proposals worthy of support or opposition is one of the more important things MnCUN staff engage in each year. In order to keep our members updated, the Network has created a bill tracking document enabling credit union advocates to keep track of bills that would affect credit unions.
In addition, we would like to encourage our members to register and participate in Credit Union Impact Week – the virtual version of our annual Credit Union at the Capitol Day. We have a lot advocacy in store and it’s going to be an amazing opportunity to engage legislators in ways we haven’t before on issues affecting our industry. You can register to join us for the kickoff on February 1 at the information below.
