Growing Public Blowback Against More U.S. Pipeline Projects

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享SNL:Returning to protest the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at its first meeting in months, opponents of natural gas pipelines said protests at the agency and a backlash against President Donald Trump helped set the stage for a recent string of victories at the state level and in federal appeals courts.“We are starting to see with Trump as president that there are state regulatory agencies and federal court judges who seem to be now acting a little differently,” said Ted Glick, a leader at Beyond Extreme Energy. “Maybe it is because if Obama is no longer president, they feel more responsibility.” Beyond Extreme Energy would like to lead the country away from gas transportation infrastructure and fossil fuels because of climate and community impacts.“The fact is that state environmental agencies in New York, West Virginia and North Carolina in the last month have all made decisions very much to the displeasure of the pipeline industry,” including extra scrutiny and even denial of Clean Water Act permits issued by the states, Glick said. In a Sept. 20 interview, he also pointed to a Delaware River Basin Commission move toward a ban on hydraulic fracturing and the U.S. Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit’s decision to vacate an approval of the Enbridge Inc.-led Sabal Trail gas pipeline, which sent the matter back to FERC for more analysis of downstream greenhouse gas emissions.“All those things are going against what Trump wants to do” and against FERC, which Beyond Extreme Energy and others believe is thwarting the transition to a clean, efficient energy future by approving pipelines, compressor stations and LNG terminals, Glick said.“I think there is a connection between the protests that have been happening at FERC over the last three years and [protests] that happened at the Senate in relationship to the Trump appointees … and the growth of this movement,” Glick said.Protesters from Beyond Extreme Energy and Delaware Riverkeeper Network interrupted the FERC monthly meeting Sept. 20, singing “We Shall Overcome.” Delaware Riverkeeper leader Maya van Rossum warned of dangers that fossil fuels pose to the climate as she was escorted out of the chamber by security. A display in front of the commission showed the gas industry as a puppeteer with the commissioners on strings.More: ($) Pipeline protesters return to FERC energized by recent wins, Trump backlash Growing Public Blowback Against More U.S. Pipeline Projectslast_img read more

The song was the first #1 single by an artist who didn’t have a recording contract!

CFPB issues interpretive rule clarifying loan originator screening requirements

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Greetings Compliance Friends!I’d like to start off today’s blog with a brief scenario: ABC Credit Union is seeking to expand its staff of loan originators to accommodate an uptick in loan applications. One new employee comes from another state and although she has applied, does not yet have the required license to conduct loan originator activities in the state where ABC Credit Union is located. ABC’s prudent compliance officer remembers that there is a provision in Regulation Z requiring specific screening and ongoing training for loan originators who are not state licensed and wonders if this rule applies to this new hire. The CFPB explains that this is not the case in its recently issued interpretive rule, clarifying that a loan originator organization is not required to follow the screening and periodic training requirements under section 1026.36(f)(3) of Regulation Z where a loan originator who is required to be licensed is operating with temporary authority due to a pending state license application.The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act) prohibits individuals from “engaging in the business of a loan originator” without meeting certain requirements. Loan originators who are employees of federal credit unions are generally required to register as a loan originator under Regulation G and obtain a unique identifier from the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLSR). Loan originators employed at state-chartered credit unions are also required to be registered and may be subject to state licensing requirements under Regulation H or applicable state law. See also, NCUA Risk Alert 14-RA-05.A state may but is not required to impose licensing requirements for loan originators if such individuals are lawfully registered and maintain their unique NMLSR identifier in accordance with section 1008.103(e)(5) of Regulation H. For loan originators that are not required to be state-licensed, section 1026.36(f)(3) of Regulation Z provides certain screening and ongoing training requirements that a loan originator organization is required to fulfill before its employee may act as a loan originator in a dwelling-secured consumer credit transaction.last_img read more

Italy, Vatican lower flags, observe silence to honor coronavirus dead

first_imgItalians marked a minute of silence and flags at government buildings were lowered to half mast on Tuesday to honor the thousands of victims of the coronavirus outbreak.The Vatican, a tiny city-state surrounded by Rome, lowered its own yellow-and-white flags. Italians on the other side of the border lowered their green, white and red national tri-color as well as the flags of their cities and of the European Union.The initiative was promoted by a group of mayors to show solidarity with the towns suffering the most in the north, the epicenter of the crisis. “All the mayors have gathered together in a kind of ideal embrace, most importantly to be close to the places that are suffering the most, where the virus has been the most ferocious, to be close to the mourning for those who have died,” Decaro said.The lockdown was due to end on Friday, but has been extended until sometime after Easter, which falls on April 12 this year.As the total number of dead on Tuesday rose by another 837 to well over 12,000, Decaro said the mayors’ initiative was a sign of respect for all suffering families.”We are trying to send a message of hope,” he said.  Italy is the world’s hardest hit country in terms of deaths and accounts for more than a third of all global fatalities.”This moment of silence of mayors, in which even the presidential palace and the Vatican participated, is an important moment for our country, showing unity from north to south,” said Antonio Decaro, mayor of the southern city of Bari, which so far has been spared the worst of the outbreak.Mayors wearing their official tri-colour sashes and some donning surgical masks looked on somberly as buglers played on empty streets that before the lockdown to try to contain the virus would have been packed with residents and tourists.Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro stood by the unusually still waters of a canal, free of boat traffic because of the national lockdown.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgAPG is to invest in Indian commercial real estate with the Xander Group.The Dutch pension fund asset manager expects to invest as much as $500m (€360m) in India’s office sector, targeting existing properties with low levels of vacancy.Xander said the two companies were looking to capitalise on “continued strong tenant demand for office space”.The joint venture, with an initial $300m to invest, will focus income-generating, institutional-grade properties – ideally let to IT and financial firms in Mumbai, NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune.
