first_imgNAFCU on Monday urged the House Financial Services Committee, which holds a mark-up today of financial sector regulatory relief measures, to ensure the relief contemplated in one bill for the thrift industry is met with a measure of relief for the nation’s credit unions.In a letter to the committee Monday, NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler noted support for H.R. 3738 the “Office of Financial Research Accountability Act of 2015,” which ensures improved transparency and more-efficient interagency coordination while heightening cybersecurity protections at the Treasury Office of Financial Research. The bill is authored by Reps. Ed Royce, R-Calif., and Patrick Murphy, D-Fla.NAFCU also noted supported for H.R. 3557, the “FSOC Transparency and Accountability Act,” which would improve the deliberative process at the Financial Stability Oversight Council by limiting the specified members of FSOC to one vote per member, among other provisions.In other comments, the association lodged opposition to H.R. 1660, the “Federal Savings Association Charter Flexibility Act of 2015,” which would extend certain powers now held by national banks to federal savings associations, without requiring a change in charter. NAFCU is urging against the measure unless credit unions also receive additional relief from current regulatory constraints – for example, through an easing in member business lending limits, access to supplemental capital or changes in statutory field-of-membership restrictions. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Authorities could also practice performing first aid on artificial dog parts. The training can be tailored to what the unit would like more practice with or where they feel improvement is needed. First time attendee Brian Zinser and his K-9 ‘Hank’ have been taking advantage of multiple training exercises.“Patrol guys and K-9 guys, especially, put a lot of work into our dogs,” said Zinser. “We do that because we don’t just track bad guys, we track missing people, and we take it very serious. We put a lot of time and effort into making our dog the best he can.”The training allows dogs to get closer to their handlers and form a stronger bond when heading into the field. The facility also provides a large space for a multitude of exercises in order to simulate real world situations. The group of 300 will continue training until Thursday.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Canada, Canine, Combat Readiness Training Center, K-9, Man’s Best Friend, National Association of Professional Canine Handlers, training, United States, WorkshopContinue ReadingPrevious Art in the Loft Brings Awareness to Human Trafficking in Thursday’s ‘Red’ ExhibitNext What’s Trending on October 3last_img read more

first_imgMASON CITY — Iowa National Guard soldiers, including those from a Mason City-based guard unit, are continuing deliveries across the state of medical personal protective equipment and other supplies needed during the coronavirus outbreak.Guard spokesmsn Colonel Michael Wunn says the group dropped off supplies in ten counties Tuesday and were headed to 21 more counties Wednesday.“The National Guard has a unique role to play because it’s both a state entity and a federal entity and so we have unique capabilities with our equipment and the trained personnel that we have. It’s available to the governor for her to call up in a time of need,” Wunn says.Wunn says there are currently 42 soldiers on state active duty status.  “This really is one of those operational types of missions where we’re able to use our military equipment to help transport important commodities across the state to those who need it,” Wunn says. Wunn says soldiers this week also delivered and assembled two large tents in Oskaloosa for the Mahaska County Health Partnership.Jasper County Emergency Management- Program Coordinator, Josh Harding, helped line up some of the supplies that were delivered. He says the National Guard has always been a vital partner to emergency management — and in this situation, it’s a little more visible than normal.He says the Iowa Guard helps in many ways that often go unnoticed. “Even in day-to-day operations, the National Guard is always a partner. Like today, with the National Guard delivering supplies, the CST team that’s always available to us out here in the public to support missions that may be unique or different or outside of what we are used to dealing with,” according to Harding.The missions are supported by units from the 1034th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion out of Camp Dodge in Johnston. Soldiers from the 1133rd Transportation Company, out of Mason City and Iowa City, and Detachment 1 of the 1168th Transportation Company, out of Marshalltown, worked alongside the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to distribute the supplies.last_img read more
