Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Congressional Role In Trade Policy May 21, 2015
Sander Levin, D-MI
"Recently, Senator Elizabeth Warren drew heavy criticism for expressing the concern that TPA could be used by a Republican President to undermine Dodd-Frank. The concern was dismissed as speculative and desperate, but as explained below, the concern is genuine and legitimate."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
Elizabeth Warren, D-MA
"In response, Congress passed some commonsense financial reforms—the Dodd-Frank act. These new rules cracked down on the cheating and lying in the financial marketplace. They required the big banks to raise more capital so they wouldn’t need a bailout if they started to stumble. They gave our regulators new tools to oversee the biggest banks to make sure the rules were followed."
Dodd-Frank Regulations Are Crushing Small Community Banks May 15, 2015
Erik Paulsen, R-MN
"Just a week ago, I met with a group of small independent and community bankers who shared some pretty striking stories. A set of regulations issued as a result of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law have now led to a more than 100 percent increase in the length of the quarterly financial status report that they must file each quarter."
Bureau Of Consumer Financial Protection Advisory Boards Act April 21, 2015
Randy Neugebauer, R-TX
"H.R. 1195 is a straightforward and bipartisan piece of legislation. It would amend the Dodd-Frank Act to create a small business advisory board to advise the CFPB. This bill would also codify two other advisory committees created by Director Cordray: the Credit Union Advisory Council and the Community Bank Advisory Council. "
Personal Explanation April 21, 2015
Raul Ruiz, D-CA
"I would have voted against H.R. 650, the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act, which reduces regulatory restrictions on high-cost mortgages in the manufactured housing industry to increase the maximum interest rates manufactured housing vendors can charge. This bill would hamstring Dodd-Frank regulations designed to protect consumers from predatory lending practices in the manufactured housing industry. The bill seeks to reduce the regulatory restrictions on high-cost mortgages in the manufactured housing industry by increasing the maximum interest rates manufactured housing vendors can charge."
