Chuck Schumer Named U.S. Senate Minority Leader

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) was elected Wednesday leader of the Senate Democratic minority, making the seasoned senator from Brooklyn a key check on Republican control of Congress and the White House.As Senate minority leader, Schumer is up against a 51-48 GOP majority that will likely gain one more seat in a Louisiana runoff election next month. But because Senate rules require 60 votes to end debate on bills before legislation can be passed with a simple majority vote, Schumer and the Democratic caucus are effectively the last stand against President-Elect Donald Trump’s agenda.“When we can agree on issues, then we’re gonna work with him,” Schumer told reporters during a news conference announcing that Democratic senators voted to promote him. “We’re not just gonna—as some have done here in the past—say, ‘Just because it’s President Trump’s idea or thought, we’re going to oppose it, per se…’ On issues where we disagree you can expect a strong and tough fight.”Schumer, 65, who voters re-elected to a fourth six-year term last week, will replace retiring U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). His counterpart, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is reportedly facing a potential challenge as she seeks re-election to her leadership post.Since the election last week, political observers are watching closely to see if Republicans will move to curtail Democrats’ use of the filibuster to block Trump’s agenda, much like the GOP did for President Barack Obama when Democrats had the majority. But experts suspect that U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) likely doesn’t have the votes needed to change the rules, since some Republican senators may be reluctant to limit their use of the filibuster the next time they’re in the minority.Besides the proposed repealing of Obamacare, the top issue expected to come before the Senate in the 115th Congress is the appointment of a replacement for the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Schumer noted that he was “deeply disappointed” that the GOP didn’t confirm Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland. Trump has said he would name a right-leaning Supreme Court nominee within his first 100 days in office.last_img read more

Irish supervisor reaffirms concerns about DB investment risk

first_imgThe latest batch of actuarial data submitted by Irish defined benefit (DB) schemes has the country’s pension supervisor “just as concerned” about the amount of investment risk inherent in DB plans as in previous years, according to a report from The Pensions Authority.In its latest review of DB statistics, it said the asset and liability data that schemes had submitted showed very little change. It showed that 86% of continuing schemes met the legally-required funding standard, compared with 84% the year before.Elaborating on its observation of investment risk, it said: “This risk is not borne equally by all scheme members: it is mostly concentrated on members who have not yet retired.“Because so many DB schemes have closed to new members, this group is getting smaller over time, and as a result the risks are becoming more and more concentrated.” Its latest review of DB statistics is based on an analysis of data returns submitted by 567 schemes by the end of March, with an average data return date of February 2019.In total, the schemes had €65.3bn in assets, with liabilities at €58bn, both virtually unchanged from last year.The asset allocation data from the Pensions Authority shows that schemes were moving out of equities and into bonds and cash.Over the last year under review, the total equity holding of DB schemes has fallen by 3.9 percentage points, from 28.4% to 24.5% – a reasonably significant fall, according to Roma Burke, partner, LCP Ireland.Meanwhile, bonds and cash increased by a combined 3%, while “other investments” – largely alternatives – increased by 1% to 22.7%.“This reweighting of asset classes suggests that trustees are taking action to reduce investment risk,” said Burke. “However, the asset allocations do indicate significant interest rate risk remains for many schemes, and this risk tends to be a particular focus for the Pensions Authority.”The regulator also reiterated its intention to subject all schemes to a periodic supervisory review as required by IORP II, once the directive has been transposed into Irish law.Burke sees this as a challenge, given the 73,000 pension schemes in Ireland.She said it is possible the Pensions Authority will adopt a risk-based approach, focusing on those schemes that may be less likely to meet the new requirements. Alternatively, it might focus on the larger schemes.In last year’s report, the Pensions Authority set out its top three priorities, which Burke considered might help inform the supervisor’s approach to selecting schemes to review.These priorities are: the misappropriation of pension assets or contributions; lack of governance or maladministration affecting benefits, or failure to pay benefits due; and DB scheme solvency.A spokesperson for the Pensions Authority told IPE it had no further comment at this time.A legal challenge from the Association of Pension Trustees of Ireland has delayed transposition of the EU pension fund directive into Irish law, more than a year after the original EU deadline.Read more: Ireland’s pensions: All set for big changesTo read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here.last_img read more

West Brom down sloppy Spurs

first_img Eyebrows were raised when the Scot was named Pepe Mel’s successor in the summer, with the Baggies’ alarming start to the season exacerbating fans’ concerns. Supporters booed West Brom after Everton’s 2-0 win at the Hawthorns last weekend, although they had a smile on their face on Sunday as James Morrison’s second-half header secured a 1-0 win at Tottenham. West Brom celebrations were cut short soon after when the offside flag resulted in a close-range Berahino strike being chalked off, while at the other end Lescott was doing well to frustrate former Manchester City team-mate Adebayor. Lescott stopped him latching onto balls from Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen, with Adebayor failing to meet a cross from the latter on the one occasion he found space in the box. An off-target Kaboul header was the only shot Spurs could muster by half-time, from which they returned seemingly rejuvenated as Eric Dier and Nacer Chadli had chances in quick succession. However, Pochettino’s men were not on the front foot for long as Gardner sliced a half-volley wide before Berahino all too easily cut inside Chiriches to sting the palms of Lloris and Kaboul hacked clear. Paulinho and Roberto Soldado were introduced with 30 minutes remaining in a bid to change the game, with the latter denied by a brave Ben Foster save after the Baggies goalkeeper fumbled an Eriksen cross under pressure. The England international denied Soldado again soon after, but West Brom were still enjoying too much possession for Spurs’ liking. Lloris gathered a 20-yard strike from Morrison as Irvine’s men pushed forwards, with the Scotland international finally beating the Tottenham goalkeeper in the 74th minute. Lamela was guilty of losing the midfielder from a Chris Brunt corner, allowing him to head home with ease. It was a gut punch Spurs were unable to recover from, with a wayward, acrobatic effort from Paulinho the best they could muster as West Brom held out for an impressive win. It was their first win at White Hart Lane since 1984 and one which looked likely from the outset, with Joleon Lescott denied a goal on an impressive debut after an unfortunate block by team-mate Craig Dawson. West Brom should have had a first-half penalty when Emmanuel Adebayor handled a Dawson header, but they continued to press after the break in a display that belied their lowly standing. A header from Morrison, left unmarked at a corner by Erik Lamela, in the 74th minute proved the difference, condemning Spurs to back-to-back home defeats in the league for the first time since November 2012. This was a match for which Mauricio Pochettino reverted to his starting line-up from the 2-2 draw at Sunderland after Thursday’s trip to Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League. That meant a recall for Younes Kaboul and Vlad Chiriches – a centre-back partnership that looked shaky from the very start, highlighted by early Dawson and Saido Berahino efforts. West Brom came closer still in the 11th minute after foolish, over-complicated play from Chiriches saw him concede a corner. While the first set-piece was cleared, the following cross fell to debutant Lescott, whose powerful strike was heading in until team-mate Dawson accidentally blocked. It was a huge let-off for the hosts and, in particular, the Romanian, while Hugo Lloris came to the rescue when Craig Gardner was afforded space to strike a low, goalbound effort from the edge of the box. Pochettino’s men were playing terribly and all they appeared to have going for them was luck, with referee Kevin Friend missing Adebayor clearly handling Dawson’s header in the 31st minute. Under-fire Alan Irvine secured his first league win at the West Brom helm after deservedly overcoming sloppy and ponderous Tottenham at White Hart Lane. Press Associationlast_img read more
