Thaler cites merchant push-back, calls for Durbin amendment grassroots action

first_imgNAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler on Thursday called on NAFCU members to contact their lawmakers and seek support for repealing the Dodd-Frank Act’s Durbin amendment through passage of the Financial CHOICE Act.“The House Financial Services Committee is expected to mark up the legislation as early as next Tuesday,” Thaler wrote in a message to association members. “It may see action on the House floor before the end of May. The merchants have launched a grassroots campaign to try to strike this provision from the bill.“NAFCU is asking each credit union to make as many contacts as possible from your executives, staff, volunteers or members in the next few days to the representatives of the districts where your credit union has a presence,” Thaler continued. “Now is the time for credit unions to take action and counter the merchants’ message and urge support for the Durbin amendment repeal.” 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

CUNA comments on NCUA proposal on combination transactions

first_imgNCUA headquarters continue reading » While CUNA supports the majority of NCUA’s proposed rule on bank-credit union combination transactions, there are aspects not statutorily required, several of which may be problematic, CUNA wrote to NCUA Wednesday. NCUA is accepting comments on the proposal through March 30.“The proposal essentially codifies current requirements and practices related to combination transactions with non-credit unions. While the proposal does not introduce much that is new, we believe codifying and centralizing the existing requirements will aid credit unions pursuing such transactions,” the letter reads. “Many of the elements of the proposal come from existing requirements, such as statutory factors the NCUA must weigh when considering an application for a combination transaction.”In its letter, CUNA disagrees with the proposed approach to exclude a limit on the length of time the NCUA may take to consider a combination transaction.center_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Discussions have been held with the Germany international regarding his future, with his current deal due to expire in the summer of 2022.Ter Stegen has remained open minded when quizzed on his plans, while speculation has been sparked regarding supposed interest from Premier League giants Chelsea.Barca had been hoping to bring any unwelcome rumours to a close by putting fresh terms in place as both sides have shown a willingness to get a deal done, but reaching a compromise that suits all parties is proving difficult.With that in mind, negotiations have been put on hold until the end of the season.Sources close to the Catalan outfit have revealed to Goal that Ter Stegen is looking to land an annual salary of around €15 million a year (£13m/$17m).That wage packet would position him among the top earners at Camp Nou, with only talismanic captain Lionel Messi sat above him.The 27-year-old believes that, after six years with the club, he deserves to have pay parity with the likes of Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and former favourite Andres Iniesta.Barca are not questioning his value to the collective cause, they merely cannot afford to dig that deep when Financial Fair Play regulations are taken into account.The reigning Spanish champions were forced to tighten their purse strings during the last transfer window, with it clear that investing heavily in January was not an option.last_img read more

Rules

first_imgEvery day it seems you read about another major mistake made by officials in the interpretation of the rules of the game.  From the roughing of the kicker that was not called in an NFL game to a major error in the WNBA finals, and the seemingly parade of calls going to the replay booth, the games become more rule interpretations rather than game play.  What is happening with the officials calling today’s games?  I think there are few good answers.First of all, long-time officials have huge egos and they think they never make a mistake.  Also, the speed of the game keeps increasing and the age of the officials keeps going up.  This in itself is not good.  Part of these interpretations come from constant rule changes.  Players don’t know what they can do and officials are not sure how to make the calls.There is a constant parade of rule changes.  Who could keep up with it?last_img read more
