The Federal Reserve

Washington D.C. – Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), who has led the effort challenging the use of TARP funds through two administrations, Tuesday questioned whether or not “banks are parking a historic amount of taxpayers’ money in the Federal Reserve while the businesses and consumers across America are starved for credit” and whether the Federal Reserve is “paying banks not to make loans.”

Kucinich raised the question in a hearing this morning before the Government and Oversight Committee at which the Special Inspector General for TARP, Neil Barofsky, testified.

Kucinich cited Tuesday’s Fed news report on Bloomberg.com:

Meanwhile, banks’ excess reserves at the Fed rose to a record $877.1 billion daily average in the two weeks ended May 20, from $2 billion a year earlier. Excess reserves — money available for lending that banks choose to leave with the Fed instead — averaged $743.9 billion in the first two weeks of this month. – Bloomberg.com

BOPP celebrates 10 years, honors probation/parole officers’ work

 

boppNashville – The Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole (BOPP) celebrates 10 years as a merged probation and parole agency this month.  At the same time, BOPP is joining with other agencies across the country for Probation, Parole and Community Corrections Week to honor the probation and parole officers who supervise offenders.

The Board of Probation and Parole was created by the Legislature in 1999 when the role of the old Board of Paroles was expanded.  Besides managing parole in Tennessee, the new agency was given the additional assignment of monitoring probationers placed on supervision by the courts.  At the end of its first year as a merged agency, BOPP was supervising approximately 42,000 offenders.

Statistics gathered at the end of June 2009 showed BOPP officers now supervise 60,993 offenders, including 11,139 parolees and 49,854 probationers.  Community correction officers in locally run agencies supervise an additional 6,925 offenders placed on alternative sentences by judges. «Read the rest of this article»
