TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Sunshine State CU said its members approved the switch of the $170 million credit union to a bank–for the second time.

Members approved the switch more than two years ago, but the credit union was forced to withdraw its bid to convert to a mutual savings bank after an upheaval in management left it without a CEO and chief lending officer.
