Hunter Named Legislator of the Year

Michigan Senator Tupac A. Hunter was named "Legislator of the Year" by the Michigan Credit Union League yesterday. His district includes the Warrendale neighborhood as well as portions of Dearborn and Inkster.

Mr. Hunter sponsored several initiatives to assist financial institutions, including establishment of Individual or Family Development Accounts, under which eligible individuals and families could establish special savings accounts to be used for education, first-time home purchases, or business capitalization. He was also responsible for Public Act 192, which streamlines financial institution operations by repealing sections of statutes that required duplicate filings on suspicious activity.

He was also cited by the MCUL for his tireless leadership on numerous consumer protection issues.
