Our nation's credit unions serve over 90 million Americans and are a critical source of consumer lending that strengthens our communities and drives our economy.

However, under current law, many financially-sound credit unions are being forced to turn away deposits in order to satisfy overly rigid regulatory capital requirements.

Fortunately, H.R. 719, the "Capital Access for Small Businesses and Jobs Act," would empower the federal regulator of credit unions to authorize supplemental capital for well-managed credit unions, enhancing access to credit and affordable financial services for millions of consumers.

Reps. Peter King & Brad Sherman on Importance

of Supplemental Capital for U.S. Consumers:

"There are many issues facing the credit union system today, but none more important to those credit unions that need help than alternative capital."
