CUNA/League system to testify before Senate Banking Committee

first_imgRachel Pross, Chief Risk Officer at Maps Credit Union, Salem, Ore., will testify on CUNA’s behalf before the Senate Banking Committee Tuesday during a hearing titled “Challenges for Cannabis and Banking: Outside Perspectives.”CUNA supports the ability of credit unions to serve cannabis-based businesses in states where it is legal but does not have a position on legalization or decriminalization of marijuana. In states where cannabis is legal for medicinal and recreational purposes, credit union members are engaged in this market but have difficulty accessing traditional banking services. The public safety risk continues to grow among credit unions and communities at large due to the lack of access to banking services.Pross testified before the House Financial Services Committee in February about the need for Congressional clarity on this matter.Last week, Fox Business published an op-ed co-authored by CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle on the need for a solution caused by this discrepancy in state and federal laws. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The electric winger joined the club on an initial loan deal in January 2019, where he chipped in with four goals in 17 games in all competitions.

Commenting on the player, Goal journalist Robin Bairner tweeted: “Monaco don’t expect him to play again this season.” Portuguese international Martins reacted by pushing Lesage, with the official then swiftly brandishing the ex-Atletico Madrid forward a red card.

And now Ligue 1’s governing body – the LFP – have launched an investigation into the incident, with Martins handed an indefinite ban until they reach their verdict. The minimum amount of time Martins is expected to be out for is eight matches, though he could be ruled out until the end of the season.

Senate OKs bill on higher alcohol, e-cigarettes excise tax hike

first_img Senators also included a provision restricting the selling of vape products to those 21 years old and below. The measure will have vape products in the same tax rates as conventional tobacco products which will have a P45 per pack excise tax next year. For vape products, proposed rate is P45 per 10 milliliter and the rate is to increase by P5 per year until it reaches P60 in 2023. For sparkling wines, the measure seeks to impose a specific tax of P50 for 750 milliliter bottle with a NRP of P500 or more beginning next year. By 2021 onwards, the P50 rate will be increased annually by six percent. For still wines and carbonated wines, the same P50 specific tax rate will be imposed next year and it will have a six percent increase beginning 2021. With 20 senators voting in favor, the Body approved Senate Bill No. 1074, which is projected to yield an additional P20 billion to P24 billion yearly, on top of the more than P100 million being collected from taxes on so-called “sin products.” In the measure, P26 will be the specific tax for distilled spirits and alcopops in 2020 plus 50 percent of the net retail price (NRP). By 2021, the specific tax will be P30 plus 50 percent NRP. It will be adjusted to P33 plus 50 NRP in 2022; P37 and P41 plus NRP in 2023 and 2024 respectively. Those who will engage in illicit trade of HPTs and vape products will be slapped with higher penalties, which will be 10 times higher than what is provided in the existing laws or from P50,000 to P500,000 and imprisonment of two years to four years.center_img By 2024 onwards, the P60 tax rates will be increased annually by 5 percent under SB 1074.

Senators moved to scrap the proposed imposition of excise taxes on the tobacco heating systems and vapor products device as they viewed this difficult to implement administratively.

From 2024 onwards, the P30 excise tax rate for HTPs will have an annual increase of five percent.
