This Week in Washington
Tuesday, June 13, 2017 6:45 AM

Both chambers of Congress are in Washington, DC, this week. Scheduled hearings include a look at the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), flood insurance, and more.

Today, the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution and civil justice will conduct a hearing titled “Lawsuit Abuse and the TCPA,” starting at 2 p.m. (ET). CUNA will submit a letter for the record of this hearing, outlining credit union concerns with the TCPA.

CUNA has been actively outlining concerns to the Federal Communications Commission and Congress that credit unions are being subject to TCPA-related class action litigation based on technical violations that cause little or no actual harm to consumers.

Additional information on the hearing can be found on CUNA’s Removing Barriers Blog.

Scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m. (ET), the House Financial Services Committee will begin a markup up of 7 bills relating to modernizing flood insurance.

CUNA sent a letter for the record for a Senate National Flood Insurance Program hearing last week, reiterating support for the reauthorization of the program.
