“Hike the Hill is an excellent forum for delivering our message to lawmakers and regulators,” said Jim Phelps, SVP of advocacy for Cornerstone.  “Despite this being an election year, there is still activity on key issues like tax reform, data security, and regulatory relief.  It is also an opportunity to express our views on new rules such as the CFPB’s Arbitration Plan, which includes significant changes to the arbitration process for credit unions and other financial institutions.”
