Missouri State Senate


SB 591 - This act creates new standards under which the Director of the Division of Credit Unions must operate in order to authorize the expansion of a credit union's membership. Credit unions may be formed in a county or within a city not within a county and may expand into counties contiguous to those areas.

Notice of the decision of the director regarding expansion must be published in the division of credit union's electronic bulletin instead of in the Missouri Register.

Under current law, any person claiming to be adversely affected may challenge the expansion authorization. This act confers standing only to those who are aggrieved upon a showing of pecuniary damages.
