Gay Clark Jennings, que acaba de terminar un período de seis años en el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, anunció el 5 de junio que se postula para presidente de la Cámara de Diputados.Jennings dijo en un mensaje en Facebook que tomó esa decisión “luego de haber orado mucho y de muchas conversaciones con episcopales de toda la Iglesia”.“Pido vuestro apoyo, ideas, participación y oraciones”, dijo ella, pidiéndoles a las personas que se le unieran en la página “para que podamos intercambiar ideas e interrogantes sobre la obra que Dios nos llama a realizar”.Jennings anunció también sus intenciones a través de una carta dirigida a los miembros de la Cámara de Obispos y a la lista de correos electrónicos de los diputados.“Me gustaría trabajar con ustedes y con otros líderes para cambiar nuestra manera de funcionar en el próximo trienio”, dice en la carta. “Para que la Iglesia Episcopal tenga importancia en el siglo XXI, tenemos que encontrar medios de avanzar juntos. Creo que Dios nos llama a abrazar un futuro sin más falsas opciones entre misión y gobierno. Sin falsas guerras entre individuos o grupos. Sin más forcejeo por autoridad o control”.Jennings dijo que, más que pedir el apoyo de los diputados, ella “esperaba que todos ustedes invertirán y participarán en la edificación de asociaciones colaborativas e interconectadas para la obra que Dios nos ha llamado a realizar en esta Convención General y en el próximo trienio”.Si resulta electa, Jennings prestaría servicios desde el fin de la reunión de la Convención General en Indianápolis, Indiana, del 5 al 12 de julio, hasta el final de la próxima reunión de la Convención General a celebrarse en Salt Lake City, Utah, en julio de 2015. Ella sucedería a Bonnie Anderson, que ha sido presidente de la Cámara de Diputados durante dos períodos de tres años.Anderson anunció el 23 de mayo que no le pediría a la Convención que la eligiera para un tercer y último período como presidente [de la Cámara de Diputados].La Cámara de Diputados aceptará nominaciones para la presidencia durante la próxima reunión de la Convención el 8 de julio, y la elección para el 32º. Presidente de la cámara tendrá lugar al día siguiente.El 10 de julio, la cámara recibirá nominaciones para vicepresidente, según información que puede encontrarse aquí. Ese cargo ha estado vacante desde el 15 de febrero de 2010, cuando Brian Prior, que era el vicepresidente, fue ordenado obispo.El vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados debe ser de un orden diferente al del presidente.La Cámara de Diputados incluye hasta ocho miembros con derecho a voto de cada una de las 109 diócesis de la Iglesia, una zona de misión y una convocación. La Convención General es uno de los cuerpos legislativos más grandes del mundo.El [o la] presidente de la Cámara de Diputados sirve como vicepresidente del Consejo Ejecutivo y de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera [DFMS, por su sigla en inglés] (la entidad corporativa de la Iglesia Episcopal). El [o la] presidente encabeza la Cámara de Diputados en la Convención General, nombra clérigos y miembros laicos de todas las comisiones permanentes y comités legislativos de la Convención, y realiza muchas funciones de enlace, desarrollo y oportunidades entre convenciones.El cargo no tiene salario, pero en el trienio 2010-2012 la Convención General aprobó un presupuesto (vea aquí el renglón 140-145) de alrededor de $589.000 para cubrir los gastos de Anderson, compensar al personal que la ayuda y cubrir los costos de mantener un consejo asesor, nombrado por la presidente.Desde que Anderson anunció su decisión de jubilarse, algunos observadores han comentado sobre cómo las exigencias del cargo podrían afectar económicamente a posibles candidatos.Jennings, de 61 años, vive en Sagamore Hills, Ohio, y ha sido directora asociada de CREDO Institute Inc. durante los últimos nueve años. CREDO ofrece toda una gama de materiales de conferencias y posconferencias que ayudan a las personas con derecho a participar del Fondo de Pensiones de la Iglesia a examinar, evaluar y re-energizar su salud y bienestar.“Estoy trabajando para garantizar que tendré todo el tiempo necesario para dedicarme al cargo de Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados”, dijo Jennings a Episcopal News Service poco después de haber anunciado su intención de presentarse a elecciones.Antes de unirse a CREDO, Jennings prestó servicios como canóniga del ordinario en la Diócesis de Ohio durante 17 años. Fue ordenada al diaconado en 1978 y al presbiterado en 1979, y atendió parroquias en Virginia y Ohio a principios de su ministerio. Se presentó a la elección del obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia a principios de 2007, ocasión en que resultó electo el actual obispo Shannon Johnston.Ella está casada con el Rdo. Albert Jennings, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Timoteo [St. Timothy’s] en Macedonia, Ohio, y deán de la zona de misión de Summit en esa diócesis.Jennings presidió el comité de Gobierno y Administración para la Misión del Consejo Ejecutivo durante los últimos tres años de su permanencia en el Consejo. Como parte de su trabajo, el comité tomó la iniciativa de revisar los estatutos de este organismo y el manual de la política de personal de la DFMS.Ella es también miembro clérigo de la delegación de la Iglesia Episcopal al Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, cuya próxima reunión este otoño es en Auckland, Nueva Zelanda.— La Rda.

Financial Services Committee Voices Opposition to Changes to CRA

first_img January 29, 2020 1,173 Views Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Community Reinvestment Act House Financial Services Committee OCC Financial Services Committee Voices Opposition to Changes to CRA The Housing Financial Services Committee met with Joseph Otting, Comptroller of the Currency, Officer of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), on Wednesday to discuss proposed changes to the Community Reinvestment Act (RCA).Chairwoman of the Committee, Maxine Waters (D-California), voiced opposition to Otting’s proposal to update the legislation. “Under Comptroller [Joseph] Otting, the Community Reinvestment Act would become the Community Disinvestment Act. Such a radical change to the CRA demands a heightened level of public scrutiny,” she said. Waters said that proposed changes to the CRA by the OCC would lead to “widespread bank disinvestment from low and moderate communities.” She added the changes set forth by Otting would allow banks to receive a passing grade by doing the bare minimum. Waters said Otting was determined to push changes through “as soon as possible,” allowing just a 60-day comment period. However, all 34 Democrats on the Committee, as well as other advocates, requested a minimum 120-day comment period, which has been customary for prior bills. The CRA was enacted in the 1960s as a response to redlining—a practice where banks discriminated against prospective customers based primarily on where they lived, or their racial or ethnic background, rather than creditworthiness.Under the current CRA framework, the primary banking regulators—specifically the OCC, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Federal Reserve—conduct regular examinations to evaluate banks’ activities to provide credit, services, and make investments in low and moderate-income communities where the banks operate. The act only applies to banks with federally insured deposits. The legislation was last updated in 1995. Committee member Patrick McHenry said reform of the CRA is a “long-time coming.” “The rise of mobile and online banking helps more consumers and communities than the CRA was intended to serve,” he said. McHenry added that current CRA regulations are “outdated and technologically ineffective.” Also voicing opposition was Committee Member Gregory Meeks, as he noted there is still evidence of discrimination in lending—something the CRA was meant to solve. “Your proposal decouples CRA from outcomes for intended communities, discounts the value of direct lending in mortgages to low and moderate-income communities and communities of color, cuts out community organizations that work directly with these targeted communities, and is just not supported by data,” Meeks said of Otting’s proposal. Meeks added that numerous banks are opposed to the plan and community groups have called possible changes “betrayal of the original intent of the CRA.” Otting, in response to the accusations against his proposal, said his intent is to strengthen the CRA, not weaken it. He said this proposal can achieve that by utilizing four metrics: Clarify what counts, clarify where it counts, measure CRA performance, and make reporting transparent and timely. He said that Congress was informed of a proposal to change the CRA in 2007 and the Department of the Treasury received recommendations in both 2017 and 2018. “This has been a lengthy and transparent process and has been consistent with the letter and spirit of the Administrative Procedures Act,” Otting said. He added that more than 90% of the comments his office received said the CRA lacks objectivity, fairness, and transparency. Otting called the claim his proposal would permit redlining “blatantly false.” “Nothing in this proposal changes the agency’s authority to enforce fair lending laws to prevent discrimination and redlining,” he said. He also said claims his proposal would use a single metric to determine a bank’s CRA rating are false. Otting said his proposal requires examiners to use retail lending tests for each product. Examiners would then evaluate the impact of a banks’ CRA activity by measuring the dollar value of that activity in each assessment and that overall bank. Among the concerning aspects of the CRA to Waters is the ability of banks to receive CRA credit for financing sports stadiums. Otting said this practice has been a part of the legislation since 1993. His current proposal doesn’t change that but noted the OCC is open to suggestions. Waters, however, objected to this notion, saying sports stadiums located in opportunity zones come with little regard to how they impact low and moderate-income communities. She also questioned whether the Fed signed off on this proposal, to which Otting said no. Otting, however, said later in the hearing that he has been engaged with the Fed “thousands of times” on this matter. She said that Otting and his office “do not wish to work with us,” as members of the committee came to a board meeting to let their opposition to possible changes be known.“You’ve decided you will work with no one. This is your proposal. This is what you want. This is what we get,” Waters said. “Forget about the Congress of the United States or anybody else—that you know better than anybody else.” The latest proposal clarifies the approach of the bill and, for the first time since 1977, lists eligible investments that qualify for CRA credit. Otting added his office will not extend the comment period to 120 days. He said the document was published on December 9, 2019, and will be closed on March 9, 2020—leaving it open for comment for 88 days.  in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
