Poll: Crist keeps edge over Scott
In the first Q Poll, the margin is narrowing with Gov. Scott lagging Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist, who is seeking his old job with his new party, by seven points. Some of this is likely attributed to public opinion regarding ObamaCare, but it could simply be that Democrats are not completely sold on Charlie Crist as their gubernatorial nominee. It will be interesting to see the next poll now that the attacks are in full force. Read more here.

Radel announces leave of absence following D.C. drug bust
After being busted for cocaine possession in Washington D.C., U.S. Rep. Trey Radel announced Nov. 20 that he would take a leave of absence to get help for his alcohol and drug problem. There are growing calls in Southwest Florida for his resignation, and Connie Mack, who held the seat before Radel, has also issued a statement: “I certainly hope Trey gets the help he needs.

Mortgage rule compliance resources

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has a new list of mortgage requirements that credit unions will need to comply with at the first of the year. One thing is for sure, there are so many it can be overwhelming for those credit unions that originate mortgage loans. 

CUNA has a new webpage that breaks down the new rules and puts them in easy to understand language. The CUNA Compliance Resources page breaks it down two ways: notes and charts. There are seven different areas covered including mortgage loan origination, ATR/QM, and HOEPA. This resource makes it simple for credit unions to have the proper compliance in place by the CFPB's start date of Jan. 10, 2014.

Visit the CUNA Compliance Resources webpage to access the many resources available to credit unions which will help them stay compliant.
