‘Leave Your Checkbook at Home’: New Seminar Alert Update
America’s Retirement System Is Too Inconsistent
Some House members are fighting to give state insurance commissioners the final say when commissioners and the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) get into fights over jurisdiction.
Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., has introduced H.R. 3746, the Business of Insurance Regulatory Reform Act of 2017 bill.
Provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act, the act that created the CFPB, already limit the CFPB’s ability to regulate insurance. The act blocks the agency from regulating the business of insurance, except in some cases in which providing insurance coverage is closely related to providing credit.
H.R. 3746 would further restrict the CFPB’s ability to get involved with insurance.
The bill would limit the CFPB’s ability to regulate any person overseen by a state insurance regulator.

free penny stock picks: iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond (TLT)
- [By Tom Gentile]
An ETF is a fund that tracks indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. ETFs basically let you trade an entire sector instead of having to pick and choose specific stocks to trade within a sector. ETFs are also a great way for you to hedge against rising interest rates. When it comes to equities, a good ETF to monitor is the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE Arca: DIA). For bonds, the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NYSE Arca: TLT) is a good way to gauge the bullishness or bearishness of the overall bond market.
