Entry Title Date
Honoring The Life Of Maurine Williamson Cain July 29, 2014
Ralph Hall, R-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of the life of Maurine Williamson Cain of Rockwall who passed away June 19 at the age of 95. Maurine was a faithful church member; dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother; a crucial member of the Rockwall community in her role as an educator; and a dear friend of mine. The youngest of five children, Maurine was born May 27, 1919 in Forney, Texas to two loving parents—Jim and Grace Williamson. She grew up in Chisholm and Rockwall and enjoyed an active and involved family life. After Maurine graduated from Rockwall High School in 1936, her brother Clifford and his wife Elva helped Maurine with her first step into higher education. She studied two years at Texas Military College in Terrell, Texas and continued her education at East Texas State Teachers College (known today as Texas A&M University-Commerce) where she earned her Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees. She then began her 38-year career as an educator at Scurry Rosser High School and Quinlan High School. On June 8, 1941, Maurine married Ted Cain in Holdenville, Oklahoma. The couple celebrated the birth of their son, Dewayne, as well as the births of two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren over the course of their 70-year marriage before Ted passed away in 2012. One year after their marriage, Ted left Texas to serve overseas in World War II. At home, Maurine worked at the defense plant in Garland and began teaching in a one-room school known as Locust Grove Community School. She taught all seven grades by herself and also served as school janitor, cook, and nurse. Maurine spent the last 34 years of her career in education teaching various grade levels at Rockwall Elementary School and Dobbs Elementary School before retiring in 1987."

Marsha Blackburn, R-TN
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise in support of a bill I introduced to prevent the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that was unlawfully created by executive memo on August 15, 2012. H.R. 5160 is the House companion to legislation introduced by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and would freeze DACA by defunding it."

Safe Act Confidentiality And Privilege Enhancement Act July 29, 2014
Shelley Capito, R-WV
"The success of this registry has not gone unnoticed. Since April 2012, State regulators have been working with other financial services providers to use the NMLS as a platform for the licensing and registry of other financial services providers, like money service businesses, debt collectors, pawnbrokers, and check cashers. In fact, my home State of West Virginia is now using this platform for their money service businesses."
Examination And Supervisory Privilege Parity Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Ed Perlmutter, D-CO
"In establishing the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Congress neglected to extend bank supervisors’ historical protections over privileged information to either the CFPB or the state regulators of nonbanks, with whom the Bureau is expected to share information and coordinate examinations. Therefore, the proprietary information of nonbank consumer finance companies does not enjoy the same legal protections as that of banks when disclosed during the course of supervision or other regulatory processes. Recognizing the importance of promoting effective supervision, Congress enacted H.R. 4014 in December 2012 to protect privileged information disclosed to the CFPB by covered persons. H.R. 4014 amended the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act) to add the CFPB to the list of federal regulators with whom no applicable privilege is waived when disclosing privileged information by or about a company under supervision. The FDI Act also permits enumerated agencies to share such privileged information with “state bank supervisors” without waiving the privilege. However, in the case of a nonbank institution, federal law currently provides comprehensive protection of existing privilege if and only if the company does business exclusively in states where it is regulated by state bank supervisors, per se."
