As legislators work to balance a multitude of interests, we work to preserve and enhance consumer choice and the credit union charter.
In Washington and Baton Rouge, we are vigilant to threats large and small, and we look for enhancement and opportunity along the way. LCUL meets regularly with legislators and key agencies to ensure the credit union perspective is part of the discussion when legislation is being considered. With the help of our retained lobbyists Adams & Reese, LLC, thousands of bills are reviewed and monitored annually with timely analysis provided by the League.
The Louisiana State Legislature was in session from March 12 through May 18, reconvening in three special sessions: the first from February 19 to March 5, the second from May 22 to June 4, and the third from June 18 to June 24. During the 2018 session, a number of bills passed that will impact financial institutions.
What does this mean for Louisiana credit unions? With the help of LCUL strategic partner Kudulis, Reisinger, and Price LLC (KRP), we've put together a summary of those bills and the impact they will have on Louisiana credit unions.
