Rep. Chu Statement on Omnibus Spending Bill

first_img 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it More Cool Stuff First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Today, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) voted against the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill. The bill, which would fund much of the government through 2015, also included a number of unrelated “riders.” One of these would repeal a crucial provision of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which requires Wall Street banks insured by the government to independently fund their riskiest derivative trading so tax payers are not left accountable. And another would increase the cap from $32,400 to $324,000 on individual campaign contributions. Rep. Chu released the following statement:“I was hoping to vote for an imperfect but necessary funding bill today. Instead, Republicans gave us a bill that went beyond funding the government to hurt taxpayers and weaken the integrity of our elections. Both of these provisions are unacceptable and have been presented to us at the point of a fiscal gun without any Congressional hearings or debate.“The Dodd-Frank law was passed to prevent the kind of risky trades that led to the historic economic collapse in 2008. This provision, written by Wall Street lobbyists, would roll back crucial protections and allow banks to use risky bets at taxpayer expense. We cannot subsidize Wall Street profits.“I am also very opposed to the incredible ten-fold increase in the amount an individual can contribute to a campaign. Our elections are predicated on the democratic value that all Americans have an equal say. This bill further weakens our campaign finance laws and allows the wealthiest to have an even greater voice in our elections, at the expense of every-day citizens. These dramatic changes to our laws have no place in a temporary funding bill. I urge my Republican colleagues to present a clean spending bill to keep the government open and allow the legislative process to work as it should for more serious bills that will have a substantial impact on our country.” EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Herbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Secrets That Eastern Women Swear By To Stay Young LongerHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Faith: Building Community Pew by Pew

first_imgFaith Leader Q&A Interview Faith: Building Community Pew by Pew By MARY TRETTER Lake Avenue Communications Director with MARY BOYLE & NANCY SMITH Published on Thursday, October 6, 2016 | 9:30 am Subscribe Community News When Mary Boyle first received the invitation she thought it was a great idea and was looking forward to meeting people, especially being fairly new to the Lake Avenue Church community.She shared, “As often happens at church, worshipers find themselves sitting in the same general area and pews of the Worship Center each week. We smile and say hello to the people we sit near, but usually don’t really have an opportunity to get to know them.”Recently Tom and Nancy Smith came up with an idea for their Section M, rows 1 through 14 worshipers. They decided to host a “Get to Know Our Family” potluck lunch at their home. For the next two weeks they placed colorful invitations on the seats in those rows inviting whoever sat there to the potluck. Guests were invited to bring a dish to share  a favorite or cultural specialty.Boyle continued, “My husband and I decided to go because we love to meet people and feel more a part of things at Lake. Sunday, August 21, over 40 LAC worshipers came to the potluck. The next few hours were spent eating delicious food and getting to know each other. We now have names and blossoming friendships with our section neighbors.”When asked to share why she decided to do this, Nancy said “Everyone has a need to build relationships where they worship but there isn’t time for that on a Sunday morning, so I thought we could create an opportunity for just that. I was inspired to help people follow through on our church’s Guiding Statement, emphasizing the second Community Essential: Learning in Diverse Communities.”Everyone loved the idea for helping make this large diverse congregation into a smaller community of new friends. The gathering was made up of all ages and backgrounds; some have attended Lake Avenue for years but there were many newcomers as well.Nancy continued, “Until you know some names and faces and share a meal together with people in our ‘unexpected family,’ a Worship Center like ours can feel big and lonely. Spending time together outside of the church building shrinks the facility and builds the Church Body. Everyone benefits. It wasn’t hard, and it has been very rewarding! You can even contact me if you want help with planning, just e-mail me at [email protected] or call (626) 817-4568.”In closing Boyle said, “As relatively new members of the LAC community, this simple, casual get together made my husband and I feel especially welcomed and at home.” It’s Community Weekend!

Clamping suspended at city’s Potato Market

first_imgNewsLocal NewsClamping suspended at city’s Potato MarketBy admin – September 30, 2010 449 Email Last month, the Limerick Post highlighted complaints from several motorists after they had been clamped while attending to their duties at the Courthouse and City Hall, where because of court sittings and meetings with city hall authorities, they were unable to return to their vehicles to insert additional money into ticket machines.Further good news for motorists is that council is to examine the possibility of introducing new by-laws against the clamping of vehicles. Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon repeated a call he made some months ago that clamping in Clare Street be prohibited.He revealed that on St Patrick’s Day a young mother with two children had “been victimised” by having her car clamped on Clare Street.“She parked in front of a business premises, which uses four or five feet of space for its own staff – half of the space is on the pathway and there’s a sign up that clamping is in operation. She was just a few minutes over the time and didn’t have €120 on her to pay the clampers., She had to wait, with her young children for almost two hours until a friend was able to get to her with the money. This is extortion – a motorist gets a fine of €40 for a parking offence – why is it €120 for a clamping offence?“We as a city council do not operate clamping  – it is antisocial and I was glad to see that this week the Market Trustees agreed that clamping in the Potato Market will be discontinued for a month. “I’m curious to find out the legal position on this and  hopefully, the city manager will agree that the by-laws in relation to the issue need changing as clamping is of no good to the commercial value of the city”.Equally opposed to clamping, Cllr John Gilligan described it is “the worst form of antisocial behaviour.“People are frequently left distraught on finding their car clamped – I know of a senior citizen who was picking up his grandchild from school and had no other way of getting home – it’s a draconian activity and should be stopped immediately. I don’t recall any discussion taking place on the clamping being allowed”.Cllr Kevin Kiely said that the Market Trustees had not been set up to compete with the city’s car parks.“I’ve made a complaint to the Planning Department and have asked them to investigate as I believe it is totally illegal”.

20 families flee Fairview Crescent

first_imgNewsLocal News20 families flee Fairview CrescentBy admin – November 11, 2010 2013 WhatsApp Anti social activity is rampant in areaTHE HSE can refuse rent subsidy to an applicant, but the question is, have they ever done so?Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This was the question posed by Cllr Diarmuid Scully in City Hall on Monday, when it was revealed that 20 families have been forced out of the Fairview Crescent in Garryowen, due to “shocking” anti social activity. Print Facebook Advertisement Linkedin It emerged on this Tuesday that one family had been issued with a court order to be out of their house within 60 days.“All anti social activity is criminal and people’s lives are made miserable and absolute hell, and the HSE has failed to do its job in this area but unless we get the courts to back us up with more support from the Garda Siochana, we are fighting a losing battle,” said Cllr ScullyArmed with a new draft policy on anti-social behaviour, councillors and City Hall executives heard Cllr Pat Kennedy say:“We need to be more hard nosed in dealing with this – the garda commissioner should come to Limerick and see what is happening in Fairview Crescent. There is a breakdown in law and order and the people are not being properly protected from these criminals who should not be rehoused.“It’s incredible that the organisations of the State have failed the people of Fairview – it’s a terrible indictment on the Minister for Justice. – criminals should not be rehoused – we should ask for repossession of the house – we are not talking about “evictions”, we are entitled to repossess our properties”.The new draft strategy does not go far enough, according to Cllr Kevin Kiely who said it is a poor reflection on the Department of Justice“We are taking about people who are breaking every housing law – they are into drugs, murder and criminal activity and are, at the same time, renting houses from the council – we have no obligation to give them houses but I spoke to someone in the Planning Department who said, ‘do you think my job is worth going out and examining these people – I’m afraid to do so”.Senior executive officer, Jean Ryan, assured Cllr Jim Long that the Draft Policy document has been vetted by the council’s legal department and director of services, Kieran Lehane said that it will be presented to Court.
