Rep Cole applauds resolution to extend county road patrols

first_img Measure helps local communities maintain public safety 20Sep Rep. Cole applauds resolution to extend county road patrols State Rep. Triston Cole today hailed House Appropriation Committee approval of a resolution that enables county law enforcement to patrol the streets of cities and villages.Cole, of Mancelona, said some of the local governments in Otsego County have faced economic hardships that required them to make cuts to their police departments. Otsego County Sheriff’s Department road patrols have helped maintain public safety in the past, and the resolution, introduced by state Rep. Aaron Miller of Sturgis extends secondary road funding to county sheriff’s departments so they can provide the patrols.“Many communities are still feeling the effects of the Lost Decade, and as a result are trying to make ends meet by reducing staff, including police officers,” Cole said. “This funding to help maintain public safety in our cities and villages must be renewed every year with a resolution, and I support the measure passed today by the Appropriations Committee. This bill provides the means for keeping families safe and businesses secure.”The resolution now goes to the full House for consideration.#####The resolution is House Concurrent Resolution 13.center_img Categories: Cole News,Newslast_img read more

VanSingel bill eliminating unnecessary state regulation signed into law

first_imgState Rep. Scott VanSingel, left, and his legislative aides Marie Minarik and Travis Chapman, right, take part in a bill-signing ceremony Tuesday with Gov. Rick Snyder.Legislation introduced by state Rep. Scott VanSingel eliminating a confusing and unnecessary state regulation was recently signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder.VanSingel’s bill was part of a four-piece package repealing the Michigan Explosives Act.“The Michigan Explosives Act was a useless law that generated confusion and created a liability for the state,” said VanSingel, of Grant. “People cannot legally possess explosives in Michigan without obtaining a federal permit, which requires applicants to go through a better screening process than the outdated and inefficient state law.”VanSingel said eliminating this state regulation makes it absolutely clear that a federal permit is required to possess explosives in Michigan.The legislation, House Bill 4524, was VanSingel’s first bill signed into law. It becomes Public Act 28 of 2018.### 21Mar VanSingel bill eliminating unnecessary state regulation signed into law Categories: VanSingel Newslast_img read more

Humanitarian Aid as an Act of Aggression

first_imgShareTweetShareEmail0 SharesAugust 24, 2014; New York TimesLast Friday, Russia sent more than 200 trucks with what they said were humanitarian supplies over the Ukraine border. Ukraine, in the midst of what President Poroshenko terms an “undeclared war” with separatists who have Russia’s support, was naturally suspicious of the convoy and insisted upon a process that would involve the Red Cross in inspecting and accompanying the supplies. But after repeated delays, the Red Cross refused to participate because their requirements for safe passage were not met.The convoy came through anyway in what Ukraine has termed an invasion of sorts. Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen of NATO made a statement condemning the convoy’s entry, and according to the White House, Vice President Biden “commended Ukraine’s restraint in the face of Russia’s blatant provocation and disregard of Ukraine’s sovereignty.”Meanwhile, as the trucks returned to Russia, that country congratulated itself on a successful humanitarian mission. The fact that the trucks went in and returned without incident—most of them, anyway; reportedly, only 185 were counted as coming back, with the others suspected as having been diverted to Donetsk—is being seen by some to be a PR win for Russia, in that it places those who were suspicious in a position where they might be viewed as alarmist.Russia’s Foreign Ministry said their goals had been strictly humanitarian all along. “We are satisfied that the Russian humanitarian aid for southeast Ukraine was delivered to the destination,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “We were guided in this exclusively by the goal of helping needy civilians.”—Ruth McCambridgeShareTweetShareEmail0 Shareslast_img read more

FCC chairman Tom Wheeler A US appeals court has up

first_imgFCC chairman Tom WheelerA US appeals court has upheld regulator the FCC’s Open Internet rules, sparking wildly opposing responses from the cable industry and the likes of Netflix.If enacted, the rules will reclassify broadband providers as telecommunication services under Title II of the US Federal Communications Act, effectively subjecting them to stronger regulation and banning them from paid prioritisation of internet ‘fast lanes’.Both the National Cable and Telecommunications Association (NCTA) and the American Cable Association (ACA) said they were “disappointed” by the decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.The ACA said its members – which are among the smallest players in the US market – would be willing to be subject to net neutrality regulation, but said it was strongly opposed to “onerous Title II rules” claiming these would impose “unnecessary and significant costs.”“ACA is disappointed that the D.C. Circuit supported the FCC’s decision to regulate the complex, computer-like networks of ISPs as though they are ‘dumb’ pipes provided by monopoly telephone companies,” it said in a statement.The NCTA urged Congress to “renew their efforts to craft meaningful legislation that can end ongoing uncertainty, promote network investment, and protect consumers.”It added that the appeals court ruling is “unlikely the last step in this decade-long debate over internet regulation” – a sentiment echoed by FCC commissioner Michael O’Rielly, who said he expected the decision to be appealed in the US Supreme Court.On the other side of the debate, Netflix welcomed the ruling, claiming that it  “underscores what’s possible when millions of consumers unite to be heard and government officials listen.”Netflix said that by defining “interconnection as a central part of net neutrality”, over-the-top service providers will be able to reach consumers “without ISP interference.”“Now the FCC has clear authority to hold ISPs to these openness rules and turn its attention to policies that support an affordable, faster internet,” said Netflix.FCC chairman Tom Wheeler described the ruling as a “victory for consumers and innovators who deserve unfettered access to the entire web.”In a statement, he said the DC Circuit court decision “ensures the internet remains a platform for unparalleled innovation, free expression and economic growth” and “affirms the commission’s ability to enforce the strongest possible internet protections – both on fixed and mobile networks – that will ensure the internet remains open, now and in the future.”FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel agreed that the decision “supports internet principles of fairness and openness—the principles that keep us innovative, fierce, and creative.”However, not everyone at the FCC was in support. O’Rielly said that, if allowed to stand, the decision will be “extremely detrimental to the future of the internet and all consumers and businesses that use it.”FCC commissioner Ajit Pai said: “I continue to believe that these regulations are unlawful, and I hope that the parties challenging them will continue the legal fight.”last_img read more

My only wish is that people see it and learn from it.“I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family and friends who have assisted me with the collecting process over many years.“I would also like to pay tribute to Libraries NI for the invigorating and exciting conversations I have had with them when initially considering donating my collection.”last_img read more
