WASHINGTON — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) lived up to her controversial reputation among credit unions, making a partisan pitch to CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference attendees to advocate on Capitol Hill for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the confirmation of Richard Cordray during her Feb. 27 address.
WASHINGTON — New senator asks credit unions at GAC to advocate for CFPB and confirmation of Richard Cordray while hiking the hill later Wednesday.
“If I have anything to do with it, there will not be taxation on our credit unions,” the House Financial Services chairman said.
Alabama, Georgia, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia would join Oklahoma, South Carolina and Michigan in challenge to CFPB, FSOC.
Although the District of Columbia Circuit Appeals Court invalidated President Barack Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board and potentially overturned the board’s decisions since early 2012, credit unions shouldn’t assume the ruling means the CFPB will meet the same fate, said NAFCU President/CEO Fred Becker.
NLRB plaintiffs say the ruling was significant because it occurred in the same court that is hearing the Cordray suit.
Friday's decision invalidates NLRB appointees, could impact Richard Cordray's recess appointment last year to CFPB.
The hearing will take place the day after Valentine’s Day, but there probably won’t be any candy and flowers for the witnesses.
Congressional Republicans think President Obama has some explaining to do with regards to the appointment of Richard Cordray.
