CUNA to push for ‘modernizing’ Federal Credit Union Act

first_imgThe federal Credit Union Act is outdated and needs to be modernized, CUNA officials said Monday, in announcing a comprehensive effort to send a plan to Capitol Hill during the next Congress.“It’s been about 20 years since the Credit Union Act has been updated,” said Ryan Donovan, CUNA’s chief advocacy officer. During that time, state laws governing credit unions have changed, as have federal banking laws.CUNA’s Credit Union Powers Subcommittee has been examining the issue, he said, adding the association also has contacted member leagues and credit unions to determine areas of the law that are outdated.He said, for example, the federal law prescribes when a credit union’s fiscal year begins, adding that some credit unions might want to have more flexibility in determining their fiscal years. He said that credit unions might want more flexibility in scheduling their board meetings than is allowed in federal law. And credit unions might want more power to expel abusive members. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

Gov. Wolf Offers State Perspective, Progress Fighting the Opioid Crisis at 2019 BIO International Conference

first_img Press Release,  Substance Use Disorder Philadelphia, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today addressed the participants in the 2019 BIO International Conference panel, “Addressing Barriers to Coverage and Access to Pain and Addiction Treatment: Where Are We Now?,” by offering the state’s perspective and progress in addressing the opioid crisis.“Finding ways to decrease the number of opioid overdoses and deaths has become a priority for my administration,” Gov. Wolf told the group. “State agencies working collaboratively in the Opioid Command Center, which I created via a disaster declaration in January 2018, have been able to implement strategies such as expanding Medicaid so more people can access treatment, promoting a 24/7 helpline, strengthening our Prescription Drug Monitoring Program and introducing the Pennsylvania Overdose Information Network, or ODIN.”ODIN collects data about overdoses, opioid seizures, locations of opioid-related incidents and other opioid-related information from more than 1,000 police stations and 300 other agencies.By bringing together data about overdoses, opioid seizures, locations of opioid-related incidents and other crucial information, law enforcement officials have been able to make better decisions about how to target heroin and fentanyl distributors. And healthcare and public safety officials can more adeptly respond to potential crises, which can ultimately save lives.The 2019 Biotechnology Innovation Organization, or BIO, international conference features more than 500 education sessions focused on various aspects of biotech and life sciences and their importance in discovering new cures and treatments for people in need of life-saving medications.BIO represents more than 1,100 biotechnology companies, academic institutions, state biotechnology centers and related organizations across the United States and in more than 30 other nations.“In Pennsylvania, we’re serious about ending the opioid crisis and we’re always looking for new ideas,” Gov. Wolf said. “Though some communities reported a drop in overdoses in 2018, we still have much work to do. I’ll continue to do everything in my power to help address this crisis.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter June 04, 2019center_img Gov.

Holloway challenge to players

first_img The Eagles head to St Mary’s on the back of a disappointing 2-0 home defeat by Swansea, where they never recovered from falling behind to a goal from Michu inside two minutes. Despite his side having now lost four of the opening five matches on their return to the top flight since winning promotion via the play-offs, Holloway remains confident this new-look Palace squad will soon gel – and is determined to make them harder to beat while also capable of landing a knockout blow of their own. Press Association “We will have to be slightly different away from home, but part of our game is drawing teams onto us and then knocking them out with a (sucker) punch,” Holloway said. “I don’t think we are going to be a Sugar Ray Leonard, I think we are going to be more of a Muhammad Ali against Joe Frasier (rope-a-dope in the 1974 Rumble in the Jungle). “I just want our lads to grow, and if we can give ourselves half a chance, then that will do. “We are going to have to set our stall out and then look to counter-attack, maybe get a set-piece and hurt them, if we can get a goal, then away we go. “It is more about staying in the games long enough when I can make those changes to try to go get the points – we have not had a draw yet, which is unbelievable if you think about the way we have played.” Southampton, who not so long ago were languishing in League One, picked up an impressive away win at previously unbeaten Liverpool last weekend as Mauricio Pochettino’s side continue their own development back among the elite clubs of English football. Holloway, though, is confident his men can rise to the challenge. “We will have massive respect from Southampton, where they have come from and where they are going, with their new ground now, and with what they have spent this summer, they are really going to have a go,” said Holloway, who can call on South African midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi again after his one-match suspension for a red card at Manchester United, although defender Damien Delaney (ankle) is sidelined. “They have some fantastic players, with great deliveries from dead balls and have Rickie Lambert who is the England striker at the moment, yes we have got to be aware of that, but we can also hurt them at the other end. “Southampton will be a fantastic opportunity to go and play on a wonderful surface to see if we can learn from the last game.” Holloway continued: “I am totally convinced our attitude and the way we are going to work hard for each other and what we have learned from last week, that we can take all of that into this next game. “We have got to be right at it and on our game, but we are trying to gel this lot together and learn from our mistakes. “As long as you improve and move forwards and don’t go backwards on your belief, that is all you can ask from the players.” Manager Ian Holloway has challenged his Crystal Palace players to box clever just like Muhammad Ali when their battle for Barclays Premier League survival continues at Southampton on Saturday.last_img read more
