Stakes Are High in Federal Review of Coal Lease Program

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享By Devin Henry in The Hill: Miners and Western Republicans are lining up against the Obama administration and environmentalists in what some consider the next front in the “war on coal.”Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced a three-year moratorium on new coal leases on public lands in January, launching a review that could potentially result in mining companies paying  higher rates.“It fits tidily into their overall view of coal,” said Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), the chairwoman of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.“You can call it a ‘war on coal,’ you can call it whatever you want. It is a policy directive coming out of this administration that says coal has no part in our country’s energy portfolio. I think that’s short-sighted and very unfortunate.”Administration officials held the first public meeting on the review on Tuesday in Wyoming, with four more to follow. The review is moving ahead at a time when coal has become a flashpoint in the presidential race.Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is running on a platform of undoing Obama-era environmental regulations and has promised coal-state lawmakers he will do what he can to help prop up the commodity. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, has been on the defensive after saying she was going to “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” She apologized for her choice of words but said she was making a broader point about helping coal miners as their industry shrinks.The federal review of new coal leases could take up to three years and will look at several hot-button issues, including whether the cost of climate change should be incorporated into the fees that mining companies pay. Environmentalists, local officials and mining interests all see high stakes in the review.Green advocates say coal companies have skirted paying proper royalty rates for years. They contend the industry should be forced to pay taxpayers a fair return for using public resources and say they should chip in extra to offset the impact of coal on climate change. “This sort of comprehensive look at climate has not happened before,” said Cesia Kearns, the Associate Northwest Regional Director for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign.“It’s a wonderful opportunity to even have the conversation and to acknowledge the impacts of climate change are bigger than we have considered before in a program like this.”Another underlying issue is the shrinking revenue that the government receives from mining on federal lands. A 2012 report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis blamed flawed Interior market appraisals for undervaluing coal on public land. It said the government has lost up to $30 billion in potential revenue over three decades in the Powder Ridge Basin, a tract of land in Wyoming and Montana that provides 85 percent of the coal mined on public land.“Interior has consistently failed to achieve what the Mineral Leasing Act requires, which is that the taxpayers receive a return based on the fair market value of coal, and that is what Congress has said they are supposed to do and that is what they have failed to do in the past,” Dan Bucks, the former director of the Montana Department of Revenue, told reporters last week. Full article:  http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/280442-coal-war-intensifies-with-obama-review Stakes Are High in Federal Review of Coal Lease Programlast_img read more

GOP tells lies about profit redistribution

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI thought Gazette readers would enjoy seeing how the members of the Republican Party are the most egregious liars. Not only is it unlikely that corporations will use tax gains to increase wage payments, they are in fact forbidden from doing so. That’s right; it’s against the law. The “fiduciary obligation” of for-profit corporations is first to their stockholders. They can’t use profits to pay their workers a bonus or increase their pay; they’re legally obligated to distribute profits to their stockholders. This “fiduciary obligation” of corporations was established by the Michigan State Supreme Court in 1919. This legal concept has been challenged in other cases since the 1950s.But it’s the economic and financial viewpoint supported by the Republican Party. Every Republican knows this, but they promoted the bald-faced lie that increased net corporate profits would be used to pay new hires or pay higher wages, both of which would be a violation of their “fiduciary obligation.” If they did use the profit gains from tax cuts to pay workers, the stockholders could sue and win. The question of the century, this so-called “New American Century,” is why do American voters cast votes against their own self-interest? Why do Americans lack the ability to detect who is lying and who is telling the truth? John Manimas MedeirosSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicAnderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more

Keenan Allen keeps it real with Le’Veon Bell, calls his rap song ‘trash’

first_img (Twitter) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/8d/fd/leveon-bell-song-review-twitter_yb7zgggmq5981brl9skqzokcg.png?t=-636607431&w=500&quality=80 Newly signed Jets running back Le’Veon Bell released his rap album “Life’s A Gamble” on March 14, and he’s still trying to promote it to his fans.On Sunday night, Bell released a tease for a music video for his song “Free At Last.” In his promotion for the video, Bell asked his followers if the song was “fire or trash.” REVIEW: Le’Veon Bell’s rap album ‘Life’s a Gamble’ underwhelms are youu ready? 🔥 or 🗑 pic.twitter.com/NrvAwiXpB2— Le’Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) April 1, 2019Not too surprisingly, many responded by tweeting the garbage can emoji back at Bell. As I mentioned in my album review, there weren’t too many positives to take away from Bell’s album. He has weak lyrics and his voice sounds the same on many songs.But Twitter users were a little more harsh with their opinions.  MORE: Breaking down Le’Veon Bell’s contract with JetsBut the funniest response wasn’t from an anonymous Twitter user. The best reply came from fellow Chargers receiver Keenan Allen who couldn’t help but just be completely with Bell. He told Bell on Twitter that the song was bad, adding he’s just “shooting the facts.” I gotta keep it band bro. This ain’t it. 🗑 https://t.co/59gGirHyMZ— Keenan Allen (@Keenan13Allen) April 1, 2019And if you thought Allen was joking or just being a troll, think again. Bell responded to that tweet saying Allen should have just texted him privately that he didn’t like the song. And Allen kept it 100 again and told Bell if he doesn’t like criticism, he shouldn’t be asking for it.He even went a step further, essentially saying his friends should quit encouriging Bell to rap.I was not trolling on my momma bro. I don’t troll. Like I said I speak facts. You shouldn’t have asked if you ain’t want the truth. All love over here bro https://t.co/FK1pa651Sd— Keenan Allen (@Keenan13Allen) April 1, 2019It should’ve been your real friends that said it tho🤷🏽‍♂️🚫🧢 @LeVeonBell— Keenan Allen (@Keenan13Allen) April 1, 2019Unfortunately the Jets and Chargers won’t play in the regular season this year. Otherwise we would have had a fun storyline heading into the matchup.last_img read more

Mayoral Primary Race In Little Silver

first_imgNeff is being challenged by Rick Brandt, a 30-year-old resident with a passion for philanthropy and volunteerism, who says he plans to help the borough “evolve and grow in the 21st century” with improved communication. During a Feb. 25 interview with The Two River Times, Neff said he and the council are monitoring the Fort Monmouth situation, but his focus remains on challenges within the borough itself. “I’m concentrating on the challenges that are of immediate importance to our residents. And it’s not always sexy. It’s bread-and-butter stuff. And it’s our job, mine and the council, to work together and make sure we don’t break the back of the taxpayer while addressing these concerns,” Neff said. This includes his runningmates Donald Galante andcouncil president CorinneThygeson, who are also upfor re-election. “My church has a smartphone app you can download and watch sermons if you happen to miss one. This is inexpensive technology we should be offering our residents because they aren’t always able to make every meeting. We should make it easy for them,” Brandt told The Two River Times. LITTLE SILVER – The race for Little Silver’s Republican mayoral candidate will be decided at the June 4 primary, when two borough men with strong connections to the community face off. “I want to aggressively go after grant funding. There are literally millions of dollars in grants that are sitting out there for communities just like Little Silver. It takes a lot of effort, but it’s something we’ve had a lot of success with at Lunch Break and, if done correctly and assertively, there’s an opportunity to bring significant revenue into the community as well as stabilize taxes,” Brandt said. “It really is a significant expense and the county will not put them in. They always leave it up to the town and that puts a burden on the community. But the council is prepared to dig in and take on some limited debt to get these types of projects done,” Neff added. “And that’s unique to Little Silver. While other towns bond for capital projects, we’ve worked to put ourselves in a position to get it done in the most cost-effective way possible.” Brandt said he also has infrastructure on his mind, but hopes to approach funding for capital projects and beautification initiatives in a different way, and believes his work in the nonprofit sector, including a position on the board of trustees for Lunch Break in Red Bank, could be a big help. Brandt said he is also taking aim at the massive Fort Monmouth redevelopment project. “It’s a unique scenario. The shore area is basically getting a new town put in and it’s happening right next to us. We should be more heavily involved in those discussions because there will be a significant impact to Little Silver, both good and bad. We need to be proactive not reactive,” Brandt said, noting concerns about potential overflow traffic coming through the borough. Little Silver Mayor Robert Neff has announced he’ll make a run for his third consecutive four-year term and has received a full endorsement from the Little Silver Republican Party, as well as backing from all sitting members of the borough council. Neff said sidewalks and curbs can be the most expensive part of any roadwork project and several of the county roads cutting through borough neighborhoods are in need of both, which can be problematic. The mayor pointed to theupcoming hearing on LittleSilver’s affordable housingsettlement, as well as schoolfunding reforms needed atthe state level, as at the topof the list of priorities. Rick Brandt But no topic was morepressing for Neff than localinfrastructure, including theinstallation of sidewalks andcurbing in various parts ofa community known for itsfoot traffic. In order to better understand community needs, Brandt said he has embarked on a journey to knock on the doors of all 2,498 Little Silver households. During those conversations with homeowners Brandt said he is collecting data and, after approximately 850 doors, he is beginning to see trends, though he is not ready to speak about his findings. Despite the effort and Brandt’s service time on the recreation committee and shade tree commission, Neff said it’s experience that sets these two candidates apart. The fort’s Oceanport Avenue entrance is located less than a mile away from the Little Silver train station and Brandt believes the time is now for the borough to get involved in the revitalization efforts of the 1,127-acre parcel and its approximately 1,000 standing structures that stretch across portions of Eatontown, Tinton Falls and Oceanport. “It’s important to have someone in place with a real sense about how government works; with a desire to make people happy, but an understanding that you can’t be successful at that 100 percent of the time,” said Neff. “There are going to be tough decisions you need to make. I’ve helped make those decisions with over a decade of service in our municipal government. That experience is an enormous advantage.”last_img read more
