Cordray may have fanned the flames in February when he defended the Bureau’s oversight of credit unions and several of the Bureau’s mortgage-related regulatory changes, namely the Qualified Mortgage rule and the new servicing rules, in a public speech at CUNA.Reps. Adam Schiff (D-California) and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) led the bipartisan group of House members in writing the letter, which praised credit unions and community banks for the “safe and sound” lending opportunities they provide for their customers. The lawmakers also noted in their letter that the CFPB routinely does not distinguish credit unions and community banks from the largest lenders for which their regulations were intended.The CFPB “may unintentionally burden community-based financial institutions and limit the choice and availability of consumer credit,” according to the letter.“(The CFPB) may unintentionally burden community-based financial institutions and limit the choice and availability of consumer credit.”The letter cited a recent report by the Government Accountability Office on the regulatory impact of some of the provisions set forth by Dodd-Frank, and “the study found that there are a number of cases where financial services have been limited or discontinued by community-based financial institutions due to new requirements.”The lawmakers pointed out that Section 1022(b)(3)(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act gives the CFPB authority to exempt “any class” of entity from its rulemakings and regulations.“As you undertake rulemakings, we urge you to consider the benefits credit unions and community banks provide and ensure that regulations do not have the unintended consequence of limiting services or increasing costs for credit union members or community bank customers,” the House members wrote.The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) praised the lawmakers’ efforts.“We thank Representatives Schiff and Stivers for their leadership on this issue, as well as all of the members of Congress that signed the letter for their recognition of the overwhelming regulatory burden facing today’s credit unions,” NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler said.Click here to view the entire letter. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

It is colorful and vibrant and happy. The animals have expressions. I like what you are doing.”Several of Feng’s other students also gave Aldridge’s artwork high praise.“He paints like a guy,” Penelope Dawson said, indicating that’s a good thing and adding that, no matter the style, Feng was always supportive.Feng encouraged her students to believe in themselves and their abilities and gave them confidence to develop their own styles. That’s what a good teacher does, Pritchett said.“Feng made a lasting impression on her students and the staff at the JCA. She came in and made a place for herself at the Johnson Center. By being a part of the Johnson Center, she enriched many lives. We wish Feng and her husband all the best.” By The Penny Hoarder The couple returned to China but came back for his graduation in December. Since that time, the couple has been considering the opportunities before them. With their decision made, they will be leaving very soon for San Francisco where they will make their home.Before leaving Troy, Feng wanted to get together with her students.  On Monday, several of them gathered at the Johnson Center to look back and also look to the future.“It was a pleasure to work with these wonderful students and people at the Johnson Center,” Feng said. “They made my time here very enjoyable.”Feng said her hope was to encourage her students’ love and appreciation of art and their desire to make art.

We were excited to have someone with her talent and her experience to teach art lessons at the Johnson Center.”From 2015 to 2016, Feng taught sketching and painting at the JCA on Wednesdays and Fridays. Some days there would be as many as 12 students in class, sometimes only two or three.
