CU tax exemption likely safe; House & Senate prep to resolve differences

first_imgThe tax overhaul legislation passed by the Senate early Saturday retains the credit union tax exemption—virtually ensuring that it will be retained in any tax legislation sent to President Trump this year.The Senate passed its tax bill, 51-49 early Saturday.While last-minute changes were being made late Friday night, no credit union-related changes were made.Since the House and Senate bill retain the credit union tax exemption, it would be difficult to kill the exemption when House and Senate conferees meet on the legislation.“Something that is in neither the House or Senate bills but then appears in a conference report is beyond the scope of matters committed to conference by either House and subject to a point of order,” said Donald Wolfensberger, former staff director of the House Rules Committee and a congressional scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

(AP Photo/Michael Wyke)ExpandHOUSTON — The chants started with just over five minutes left.The Lakers were leading by 16, and streams of red-clad fans were heading up the Toyota Center aisles. Emboldened, a remaining cadre of Lakers faithful filled the arena with shouting: “LET’S GO LAKERS!”Clad in a blazer, a gold polo and a pair of Chuck Taylors, injured All-Star forward Anthony Davis waved his fingers in time as if he were directing them. As the arena pumped music in to suppress them, the dissidents only got louder.The Lakers were impossible to drown out on Saturday night. Off the court as well as on it. Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersLeBron James had 31 points and 12 assists, Kyle Kuzma added 23 points and the Lakers (34-8) pounded the Houston Rockets 124-115 with a second-half rally that blew the supporting fans out of the arena.James and Kuzma led a 65-50 second-half rally, and the Lakers tightened their defense on James Harden and Russell Westbrook, arguably the toughest offensive backcourt duo in the NBA. While the two Houston stars combined for 69 points, the Rockets’ bench struggled while the Lakers’ own reserves helped push them to 4-1 in this most recent stretch without Davis.The only loss, a one-point defeat to Orlando on Wednesday that snapped their nine-game win streak, seemed to chafe them.“We hated the loss that we had the other night against Orlando,” James said. “We had a couple days to just reshape, refocus and start the second half of the season the right way, and we did that tonight.”A physical first half made the Lakers seem destined for a 48-minute mudfight. The Rockets (26-15) made James muscle in for his drives against defensive bulwark P.J. Tucker and ruthlessly chased 3-point shooters off the free-throw line. The Lakers were just 4 for 14 from long range in the first half, and James – playing again without Davis – had only one other teammate (Danny Green, 10 points) in double figures after the first half. The Lakers’ rally seized on several momentum-shifting plays, including back-to-back blocked shots by JaVale McGee that helped energize the crowd and spur a 32-17 third-quarter advantage.That sequence included a celebration by McGee which earned him a technical foul, one of three the Lakers were surprised to receive on the evening (including one for Davis on the bench). But they also felt it was part of the formula, along with the crowd and the energy they had on the court, that kept them churning along atop the Western Conference.James might as well have had the chants still ringing in his ears as he packed to leave.“It’s something that you really can’t explain unless you’re involved in it,” James said after the Lakers improved to an NBA-best 18-3 on the road. “We love the Laker faithful when we’re in Staples Center or when they travel with us. Tonight they showed (themselves) and we just tried to give it back to them by performing the way we did on the floor.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions center_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The other end wasn’t looking promising, either, as the Lakers couldn’t wall off the bruising drives of Westbrook, who backed down defenders at will to the tune of 22 first-half points (16 in the paint). With Harden also getting to the free-throw line, the Lakers looked taxed and in need of a second star to contend.They didn’t need one, as Kuzma scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also scored 20, as the Lakers’ guards found a rhythm back-cutting Houston’s Clint Capela for 54 points in the paint.But the biggest change was defense. The Lakers tweaked their trap scheme on Harden, the league’s leading scorer, to force him to pass out to his supporting cast. Those players weren’t able to punish the Lakers: Eric Gordon and Danuel House combined for 23 points, the only points the reserves scored, and none of the other Houston starters finished in double figures.Double-teaming Harden was a unique scheme the Lakers had only practiced on Friday, the day before the game. Green said that experience helped carry them through.“If you haven’t done it all year, even if you have practiced, it’s tough to make an adjustment on the fly,” he said. “You can do it in film, but when you have veterans like we have on this team, it’s easier … because guys have been doing it for some time in this league. We kind of trust each other.”The other adjustment was having Kuzma defend Westbrook. While Westbrook found the strength to back down Caldwell-Pope and Alex Caruso, moving the 6-foot-9 Kuzma was not as simple. It took away post touches that Westbrook had been using to carve up the Lakers in the first half.“Just try to keep him in front, take tough shots and just not foul,” Kuzma said. “These guys, they look for fouls. And if you keep them off the line, it bodes pretty well for you.”Harden and Westbrook ended up taking a combined 27 free throws, but just 12 were in the second half.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years last_img read more

Keeping the faith – a letter from our CEO

first_img April is the month when traditionally many golfers and their clubs come out of hibernation.The clocks have changed, the weather improves and The Masters whets the appetite for a new season.I’m no different to every other golfer in England who loves this great game of ours.Normally I’d be looking forward to this weekend’s County Foursomes at Chippenham Golf Club.In a fortnight, myself, county colleagues and many friends from clubs around Wiltshire would be ready for the County Championships at Tidworth Golf Club.I’d have been cramming for these ‘exams’, playing with my friends at Marlborough Golf Club and trying to shake off the winter rust.Instead, we have all been living through difficult times and golf courses remain closed as we all play our part by staying at home to protect the NHS and save lives.However, golf WILL return. We will get to enjoy our sport again, our friendships, our rivalries and experience all the highs and lows that come as part and parcel of this wonderful game.Since the 23 March shutdown, the sacrifices we have all made in our daily lives have helped to play a part in a huge national effort to combat COVID-19.The way everyone in golf has rallied together in these uncertain times fills me with great optimism for the future.Now is the time for us all to keep the faith and see this through until the end.The way golf clubs and golfers have played their part at a time of national crisis has been exemplary. The spirit shown has reinforced just why this game is so precious to so many.At England Golf we made the responsible call to close courses and we are unwavering in this decision. This is a stance made in the national interest and validated by government.Throughout these challenging times, England Golf has collaborated like never before with our colleagues in golf administration and presented a united front during many conversations with government.This collective approach has continued this week as we work with government to try and find the right conditions under which golf can return.‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ is the message and, as mentioned in my letter last week, proposed guidelines to prepare for when golf returns will soon be sent out to all clubs and counties.I would like to thank everyone who has dealt with the frustrations of the last five weeks by acting to save lives.We must continue to do the right thing in the belief that when it is safe for golf to return we can look back with pride at how our community of golfers handled a situation that turned our sporting world on its head.Please remain optimistic, keep the faith as we will Play Safe and Stay Safe on the fairways together again soon.Jeremy TomlinsonChief Executive, England Golf 29 Apr 2020 Keeping the faith – a letter from our CEO Tags: Coronaviruslast_img read more
