In Brief: Oregon Senate Passes CU Deposit Bill
SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill that would let Oregon municipalities deposit their funds in credit unions.
The bill passed by a margin of 22-to-5 Thursday and now moves to the House for a vote.
Meanwhile, House leaders agreed Thursday to hold a hearing on a bill that would tax the state's largest credit unions. Had it not agreed by Friday, April 11, to hold a hearing the bill would have expired. The bill would apply the state's 6.6% excise tax to state-chartered credit unions with more than $100 million of assets.
