American Farm Bureau Files Brief in Egg Law Case

first_img“It is more than sufficient to establish … standing to allege that one state has enacted a law that threatens broad-based harm to an entire industry within another state,” according to AFBF’s brief.  “The injury to each state’s egg-consuming public assuredly is enough (to warrant the suit against California),” according to AFBF. “The claim is straight-forward: By playing with the levers of the national supply of shell eggs, California’s legislation is likely to drive up the cost of eggs for consumers within the plaintiff states. That is all that is necessary to establish … standing.” Home Indiana Agriculture News American Farm Bureau Files Brief in Egg Law Case SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 11, 2015 Facebook Twitter A California law that regulates agricultural production in other states is unconstitutional for multiple reasons, and a lower court ruling that barred other states from bringing suit against California on behalf of their citizens should be reversed, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation. In a friend-of-the-court brief filed today in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (State of Missouri, et al. v. Harris, et al.), AFBF urged the court to find that six states have standing to challenge California’s egg law. Facebook Twittercenter_img SHARE Previous articleBiofuel Leaders and Petroleum Institute Spar over Reforming the RFSNext articleTechnology Solving Nitrogen Guesswork Gary Truitt A federal district court in California dismissed a lawsuit brought by officials from Missouri, Alabama, Iowa, Kentucky, Nebraska and Oklahoma on behalf of their citizens in October of 2014, months before a new California law imposed hen cage size restrictions on any shell eggs sold in the state, including those produced out-of-state. California’s legislature enacted the law to protect California egg producers from a competitive disadvantage resulting from the 2008 Proposition 2 ballot initiative that imposed cage size restrictions on California egg producers. “It is unfortunate that California’s voters put egg producers in their state at a clear competitive disadvantage, and we sympathize with the California farmers who will bear the brunt of that action,” said AFBF President Bob Stallman. “Freedom from unreasonable restrictions on interstate commerce, however, is a hallmark of our nation and the federalist system of government established in the U.S. Constitution. Without a legitimate health or safety justification, the California Legislature simply does not have the authority to regulate how eggs are produced in other states. A foreign trading partner attempting this kind of trade-barring action would cause an outcry all across the world trade arena.” The California law presents out-of-state egg producers with an untenable situation and, because all “consumers will suffer,” the states of Alabama, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma should be allowed to file suit against California on behalf of all their citizens, AFBF said. According to AFBF’s brief, the law would have detrimental effects on the national egg market, since California accounts for one in every eight eggs sold in the U.S.   As for out-of-state egg producers, they “are placed between a rock and a hard place,” deciding whether to opt out of that sizeable market, or comply by incurring enormous capital costs associated with installing cage systems required by California law. The Congressional Research Service estimates compliance costs between $25 and $30 per hen. For a medium-sized farm with 300,000 hens, costs would be between $8 million and $9 million.

Army of Islam threatens to kill BBC correspondent Alan Johnston

first_img Receive email alerts News Organisation Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists News Reporters Without Borders voiced alarm today at the contradictory signals coming from Hamas representatives and the Army of Islam militant group about the fate of British reporter Alan Johnston of the BBC, who has been held hostage by the Army of Islam in the Gaza Strip since 12 March.“We are very worried by the latest developments in this case, especially the irrational demands being made by Johnston’s abductors, the radicalisation of their position and their threat to kill him,” the press freedom organisation said. “The chaos reigning in the Palestinian Territories are hampering the negotiations and we do not even know if they are being conducted by the dismissed Palestinian prime minister, Ismael Haniyeh, in Gaza or by the Palestinian Authority’s President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.”After Haniyeh’s Islamist party, Hamas, seized control of the Gaza Strip, a Hamas representative in Iran, Abu Osameh al-Mo’ti, told journalists on 16 June that Johnston would be freed “in the next few hours.” But a Hamas spokesman in Gaza, Sami Abu Zuhri, was more cautious, saying he could be freed in next few days. “Major efforts are under way and should result in Alan Johnston being freed soon,” he said.But the Army of Islam, the Palestinian armed group holding Johnston, has denied reaching any agreement with Hamas. “If we do not manage to reach an accord and if the situation gets more complicated for us and our group, then we will ingratiate ourselves to Allah by slaying this journalist,” a masked Army of Islam militant said in a video broadcast by the pan-Arab satellite TV station Al-Jazeera yesterday. One of the station’s reporters was driven blindfolded to a unknown location to film the statement.Johnston is due to complete is 100th day in captivity on 20 June. Reporters Without Borders has called on 100 news media around the world to join in an appeal for his release and the release of 14 other journalists currently held hostage in Iraq. The press freedom organisation will unveil the logos of the 100 media on the Champ-de-Mars, opposite the Eiffel Tower, in Paris on 20 June to demonstrate the extent of the support for their release.

MEPs reinforce protection for whistleblowers in proposed EU directive

first_img Help by sharing this information RSF nonetheless regrets that the version approved by the Legal Affairs Committee restricts what whistleblowers are allowed to report to illegal activities and abuse of law. This significantly weakens protection for whistleblowers. The directive should cover activities prejudicial or potentially prejudicial to the public interest in general.  RSF also welcomes these changes:- The directive’s scope is extended by means of a non-exhaustive list of European laws whose violation could be the subject of whistleblower reporting.- Protection is provided not only to whistleblowers but also to the colleagues who help them and to journalists.- There is increased protection against retaliatory measures, including gag orders. Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes the significant improvements to the European Commission’s proposed directive on whistleblowers that were approved today by the European Parliament’s Committee on Legal Affairs. The committee’s amendments would increase protection for whistleblowers throughout the European Union and would reinforce their right to go straight to the media with information. It is now up to the European Council to approve the proposed EU directive. RSF_en The ball is now in the court of the Council of the European Union, consisting of EU member states. RSF urges the Council to accept the amendments approved by the MEPs, in particular, the protection for whistleblowers going directly to the media. It is also vital that the Council should take a decision by the end of the year, so that the directive’s final adoption can take place before the European elections. Whistleblowers November 20, 2018 MEPs reinforce protection for whistleblowers in proposed EU directive “The MEPs have significantly expanded the range of circumstances in which whistleblowers can turn directly to the media without first using internal or external reporting channels,” said Julie Majerczak, RSF’s representative to the European institutions. “This is essential both to protect them and to protect the freedom to inform and the right to information in the public interest. The importance of the role that whistleblowers play in exposing activities prejudicial to the public interest has repeatedly been confirmed in recent years in such affairs as the Panama Papers, LuxLeaks and the Mediator case in France. It is therefore vital to provide whistleblowers with the broadest possible protection when they alert public opinion via the media. The decision to go through journalists, who are in a position to verify the facts of a case, should even be seen as a sign of good faith on the whistleblower’s part.” News Under the amended version of the proposed directive (which was adopted by 22 votes to none against, with one abstention), whistleblowers would be allowed to go directly to the media if they had reasonable grounds for believing they could not use internal or external reporting channels because of, for example, a manifest or imminent danger, a threat to the public interest, or special circumstances such as collusion, the implication of the relevant authorities or the danger of destruction of evidence. Furthermore, the list of circumstances in which whistleblowers could go straight to the media is open-ended. The version proposed by the European Commission was very restrictive, limiting the circumstances to an imminent and manifest danger or a risk of irreversible damage.

Rates Go Down, but Things Are Looking Up

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac backed mortgages are hitting a 15-year high, according to the July 2017 Housing Finance at a Glance Monthly Chartbook recently released by Urban Institute. The share from 2007 to 2013 was approximately 40 percent, but Q1 2017 is reflecting an increase to 47.8 percent. This is one of the few rates that are increasing—but decreasing rates, in this sense, are certainly a good thing.The appreciating home prices in today’s market are good for those that are under water. According to the report, homes in negative equity (LTV greater than 100) are declining as housing prices appreciate.Compared to the share of all residential properties with a mortgage, as of Q1 2017, those in negative equity were at 6.1 percent. Properties near negative equity (LTV between 95 and 100) stood at 1.6 percent. To paint the picture, in Q3 2008, those in negative equity were hovering right around 25 percent until around Q4 2012, when rates slowly began to decline.That’s not the only figure looking better for consumers—90 day delinquencies are resuming their decline after a slight seasonal increase in Q4 of 2016 from 1.60 percent to 1.37 percent in Q1 2017. Foreclosures are falling to 1.39 percent of all loans. Combining both delinquencies, this is down from Q4 2016’s 3.13 percent and Q1 2016’s 3.29 percent to 2.76 percent in Q1 2017.The Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE) had a slowing in Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) refinances due to the high volume of borrowers who have already done so.Data from the FHFA Refinance Report and Urban Institute points to this trend continuing, considering the recent rate increases. HARP refinances total 3.46 million since Q2 2009 (HARPs inception), and accounts for 12.6 percent of all GSE refinances in Q1 2016. Compared to all refinances, HARP refinances were 3 percent. This is based on all data that is available until April 2017.

first_imgABC News(NEW BERN, N.C.) — Hurricane Florence pummeled North Carolina, making landfall Friday morning with storm surges and wind gusts before contributing to at least five deaths.Authorities have confirmed those storm-related deaths, including a mother and her infant child who died after a tree fell on their home in New Hanover County, where the storm hit Friday morning with a 105 mph wind gust, the strongest wind in the city since 1958.The child’s father was transported to a hospital with injuries, according to Wilmington police.A third person died nearby in coastal Pender County, North Carolina, where an official called it a medical fatality but did not elaborate.Another two people died in the city of Kinston, said Lenoir County Emergency Services Director Roger Dail. A 78-year-old man was electrocuted at his home while attempting to connect two extension cords outside in the rain, Dail said. North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper had previously said that a person in Lenoir County was killed while plugging in a generator.A 77-year-old in Lenoir County is believed to have died after he was blown away by heavy winds while attempting to check on his hunting dogs, Dail said. The man’s family found his body Friday morning at his home, Dail said.Flood conditions will worsen through the relentless rainfall over the next couple days, officials warned. The system was downgraded to a tropical storm on Friday afternoon but remained a slow-moving destructive storm.Cooper told ABC News’ David Muir that residents should continue to shelter in place, even though Florence is no longer a hurricane, because roads are covered in debris and water, and rescues are still taking place in coastal areas.“There’s a great temptation to want to go back east and to view you property,” he said. “Do not go, and stay in place.”Rain forecasts show an additional 10 to 20 inches possible on top of the 10 to 20 inches that have already fallen. North Carolina’s Newport and Morehead City have seen about 19 inches of rain so far.“The sun rose this morning on an extremely dangerous situation and it’s getting worse,” Cooper said, calling Florence a “thousand-year rain event.”Wilmington Police Chief Ralph Evangelous agreed, telling Muir, “I see a biblical proportion flood event that’s going to occur. I see the beach communities’ being inundated with water and destruction that will be pretty, pretty epic.”Here’s the latest:As the rough winds toppled trees and power lines Friday, power was knocked out to more than 700,000 North Carolina customers. Officials are predicting that potentially 2.5 million customers could be without power as the storm continues on.In Bayboro, North Carolina, one of the areas under evacuation, resident Kim Dunn stayed behind. She was trapped in her truck surrounded by rising water Friday as her boyfriend and his cousin were stranded on a paddle boat less than a mile away.The water was as high as street signs, and “we have no way to get to them,” Dunn told ABC News Friday morning.“They’ve been out there for about six hours now just screaming for help,” she said. “Only communication we have with them is just me flashing my lights to them and I think they have a flashlight they’re flickering back to us.”Dunn, the mother of a 10-month-old, a 3-year-old and an 8-year-old, said she made a decision to stay behind while others fled.“We were trying to figure out if we had enough finances to get out and if we were to get out, were we going to be able to get back home. So we made a decision to stay,” she said. “I don’t know how long it’s going to be before the water actually starts to come into the apartment.”In nearby New Bern, where water levels reached at least 10 feet overnight, 150 people requested a rescue. Volunteers are using private boats to pitch in and help, city spokeswoman Colleen Roberts said.The downtown area, at the confluence of two rivers, is mostly underwater.New Bern resident George Zaytoun chose not to evacuate and is trapped inside his home.“It’s like a bomb has gone off,” Zaytoun told “Good Morning America” Friday. “Everything around us is underwater.”Zaytoun now regrets his decision, he said.“I think we kind of let our guards down,” he said of his community’s response to the storm’s being downgraded to Category 2 from 4.Florence “is twice the size of Hurricane Hugo,” which tore through the Carolinas in 1989, New Bern Mayor Dana Outlaw told “GMA.”Gov. Cooper said Friday, “As soon as it is safe, first responders will make sure they go and rescue people who need to be saved from this storm.”Some people were arrested for breaking into cars as Hurricane Florence approached North Carolina Thursday night, Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram told ABC Wilmington affiliate WWAY-TV.“If you seek to prey upon the citizens of Brunswick County, we’re going to do everything we can to lock you up,” Ingram warned. “I made sure ahead of time that we had adequate space for anybody that wanted to try that.”The rainfall is forecast to reach up to 40 inches in some areas over the next several days.Storm surge could be as high as 11 feet in parts of North Carolina, prompting officials to closely watch the rise of rivers in the eastern part of the state. River flooding may be worse than Hurricane Floyd in 1999.“We are expecting several more days of rain and our focus now is getting people away from immediate danger and then we will shift to putting our communities back together,” Cooper said Friday.“I know North Carolinians. We’re going to make it through this because we’re going to stick together and we’re going to work together.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
