Don't Tax My Credit Union
Grassroots campaigns and PAC promotions aren't just ideals; they're the daily work of the Cornerstone Credit Union League. We advance the credit union mission and foster the public trust via multilayered grassroots efforts, PAC fundraising with sustained giving, and community involvement. Through our network of legislative coordinators, participation in special events with lawmakers, and strategic activities designed to strengthen our political influence, we strive to positively impact the current financial climate and the future health of credit unions.
One of the primary goals of the Cornerstone Credit Union League is to advocate on behalf of the credit unions in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. An important aspect of advocacy is engaging our members to participate. Contributing to PAC is just one way you can and SHOULD participate in the political process!

Exercise your American right, and Get Out the Vote! Tomorrow, March 4, is election day for the Texas primaries, and casting your ballot on behalf of your community and your credit union is essential.
Only one more day to vote EARLY in the Texas primaries, and with so many key positions on the ballot, your vote could not be more important. Early voting (in person) for the Texas primary began Feb. 18 and runs through Feb. 28, with the actual primary election day next Tuesday, March 4. Early voting means shorter lines, and that makes getting in and out of the voting booth a breeze.
If you think tax reform isn't going anywhere in Congress, it's important to understand that Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means committee and top Republican tax writer, intends to release his long-awaited proposal to revamp the tax code as early as next week. You can read more about it at CUNA and on Bloomberg.com. The Camp memo said now is the time to pursue a tax overhaul in the interest of boosting the economy, and he added, "We simply cannot afford the business-as-usual mentality that keeps Washington comfortable but complacent."
