Randolph-Brooks FCU Employees at Texas Capitol to Oppose HB 1752
Wednesday, April 26, 2017 6:45 AM

RBFCU Employees at Capitol

Employees of Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union from San Antonio, the Austin Administrative Services Center, and the greater Austin area branches came to the Capitol on Tuesday to express opposition to HB 1752 to the House Investments and Financial Services Committee.

HB 1752 is the House companion to SB 714, the bill that will increase the requirements on credit unions when opening new or modifying existing accounts that offer a payable-on-death feature.

"We appreciate all the credit union leaders who made time to come to the Capitol, including the large number of credit union activists from RBFCU," said Jeff Huffman, president of the Texas Credit Union Association. "The work of everyone engaging lawmakers and activating grassroots to fight SB 714 and HB 1752 has been key to slowing these bills down. We get feedback from lawmakers more each day that they are hearing from credit unions about these bad bills. By credit unions across Texas working together, we are making progress in the fight against SB 714 and HB 1752, but the battle is not over. We need every state and federal credit union responding to the legislative alert this week."

The attendees (pictured) are Jim Cavanagh, Beth Wood, Mark Matthews, Anna Postelle, Debra Lively, Felipe Estrada, Seth Rodriguez, Anna Rangel, Candice Halsell, Shawn Johnson, Kim Torres, Lisa Fogle, and Theresa Lockingen. Salvador Guerrero, not pictured, also attended.
