Credit union trade groups endorse CFPB advisory opinion plan; consumer groups oppose it

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » A Consumer Financial Protection Bureau proposal to allow financial services providers and trade groups to apply for advisory opinions would help bring more certainty to the regulatory process, credit union trade groups said last week.A coalition of consumer groups warned that the proposal would circumvent the regulatory process that is designed to protect consumers.In announcing the proposal in June, the CFPB said that the proposal, if adopted, would focus primarily on clarifying agency rules. “Under the program, parties will be able to request interpretive guidance, in the form of an [advisory opinion] to resolve such regulatory uncertainty,” the agency said.The proposal also would allow trade groups or outside counsel to submit a request on behalf of a group of clients or members without those entities being named.last_img read more

Conservation Officers save girl from drowning

first_imgRichmond, IN—Two Indiana Conservation Officers rescued an 11-year-old girl from drowning Friday, after she fell into the Whitewater River in Richmond, below the Weir Dam. The rescue was a result of the officers being in the right place, at the right time while patrolling the river.At approximately 5:30 p.m., Indiana Conservation Officers Rhett Braun and Cole Hollingsworth were on foot, checking fishing licenses, when they heard someone yelling for help. They observed a young girl in the river, struggling to remain on the surface. Both officers entered the water, swam to the girl, and brought her back to shore.The girl was checked out by EMTs with the Richmond Fire Department and found to be uninjured.It was determined that the girl, who did not know how to swim, had fallen into the river while walking the bank below the low-head dam with family members. The river in this area was 8 to 9 feet deep, with a strong current at the time of the incident.Indiana Conservation Officers remind the public to use caution while recreating near the water and recognize the dangers of low-head dams. It is also a good practice to have children and non-swimmers wear personal flotation devices while on or near the water.last_img read more
