Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Examination And Supervisory Privilege Parity Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Ed Perlmutter, D-CO
"The Dodd-Frank legislation empowered the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to regulate, supervise, and examine providers of consumer credit and financial products. Among these companies, nonbank financial institutions are typically State-licensed, and their primary regulator is often the State banking commissioner. "
Obama Economy July 24, 2014
Roger Williams, R-TX
"He should focus on what House Republicans are doing and cooperate by getting his party leaders in the Senate to act on more than 40 bills to get our economy moving, get people back to work, and roll back his administration’s harmful policies like Dodd-Frank and ObamaCare—the major force behind the transition to part-time America."
Happy Birthday To Cfpb July 22, 2014
Elizabeth Warren, D-MA
"I am here today to say happy birthday to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This week marks 4 years since Dodd-Frank was signed into law and 3 years since the consumer agency opened its doors."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 22, 2014
Mary Landrieu, D-LA
"Today I am offering a very simple, common sense provision that would cut back on some of the onerous regulations community banks are facing without compromising the safety and soundness of our financial system or important consumer protections. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, CFPB, released its final rule on consumers’ ability to repay mortgage loans under Dodd-Frank in January 2013. The final rule, implemented in 2014, defines the qualities of a “qualified mortgage”, QM, which presume that the lender has satisfied the ability to repay requirements. While I was encouraged by many aspects of the rules, I feel there is more to be done to ensure that community banks and Main Street lenders are not stifled by onerous regulations."
Fighting Hunger Incentive Act Of 2014 July 17, 2014
Don Young, R-AK
"Mr. Speaker, it is always interesting. We talk about our good chairman’s proposal for tax reform. If I remember correctly, that side of the aisle criticized that tax reform badly, and did not do it when they were in the majority. They passed ObamaCare, they passed cap-and-trade, they passed the stimulus package, and they passed Dodd-Frank. They didn’t address this issue of being fiscally responsible. That amazes me."
