The Iowa Legislature has adjourned, and thanks to you, there was no tax increase to Iowa credit unions and their hard-working members. We communicated frequently about the need to contact your legislators the past few months, and your voice was heard. Thank you!

With your help, more than 40,000 emails were sent to legislators from Iowa credit union members, more than 2,500 handwritten letters were mailed, and more than 750 people showed up to rally for financial choice at the Capitol.
Amid continued consumer abuse by banks in the media headlines, credit unions are needed now more than ever. We are glad that legislators and Governor Reynolds chose to preserve this needed cooperative structure in the marketplace, and we look forward to continuing to help Iowans improve their financial lives.
While you may have been just one among many, it was everyone’s individual contribution that made the difference. Banks may be bigger and have deep shareholder pockets, but they don’t have members like you, and we showed that we are truly stronger together.
Thank you again for your support!
