AFBF Applauds Introduction of Estate Tax Repeal Bills

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News AFBF Applauds Introduction of Estate Tax Repeal Bills SHARE AFBF Applauds Introduction of Estate Tax Repeal Bills Facebook Twitter Previous articleThe Hoosier Ag Today Podcast for March 10th, 2021Next articleHAT Market Analysis for 3/10/21 with Tom Fritz, EFG Group American Farm Bureau Federation The American Farm Bureau Federation is calling on Congress to remove barriers to farm ownership. Bills aimed at eliminating the estate tax were introduced in the Senate and House Tuesday. Both are supported by the American Farm Bureau Federation.Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) and 25 cosponsors introduced S. 671 and Reps. Jason Smith (R-Mo.) and Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) introduced H.R. 1712, with 121 cosponsors. Both bills would allow for a complete repeal of the estate tax, which, according to AFBF analysis, threatens more than 74,000 family farms across the country and nearly half of all farmland.“Farmers and ranchers already face unpredictable challenges beyond our control yet persevere to protect our nation’s supply of food, fiber and renewable fuel. The tax code should encourage farm business growth, not add to uncertainty,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “Eliminating the estate tax removes another barrier to entry for sons and daughters or other beginning farmers to carry-on our agricultural legacy and make farming more accessible to all. We appreciate Senator Thune and Representatives Smith and Bishop for introducing their bills and look forward to working with them to get this important legislation passed.”If the estate tax is not eliminated, instead of spending money to improve their operations, farmers and ranchers, along with all small businesses, will be forced to continue to divert resources to pay for estate planning to account for a shifting and unpredictable tax code.The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act temporarily doubles the estate tax exemption to $11 million per person indexed for inflation through 2025. However, without congressional action, the estate tax exemption will revert to $5.5 million per person in 2026, putting even more farms and ranches at risk.

I have tried to contact several authorities including District Magistrate and Superintendent of police. There is no response. Everyone is talking about some oral order but its source and authority is not disclosed. No written order for banning “Azaan” is being shown” the letter states.In light of this, the MP enunciates that since it is “Ramadan is the month of prayers” and “this time everyone has decided to pray from their respective home”, Azaan is essential as it alerts people about the time of prayer, especially at the time of “Sahree and Iftaar”.Praying for directions from the court to allow Azaan by only one person, i.e. the “Moazzin” from the respective mosques within the district, the petitioner avers that doing so would protect Fundamental Rights of people of Ghazipur.The letter reads,”As a democratically elected representative of the people of ghazipur, it is my duty to hear the grievances of my electorate. I am addressing the present letter on behalf of my electorate for enforcement of their Fundamental Right emanating from Article 14, 21, 25 of the Constitution of India” Click Here to download the letter[Read Letter]Next Storylast_img read more

India escorts its first WFP vessel in Somalian waters

first_imgAn Indian Navy frigate reached a milestone recently as it became the first Indian warship to escort a vessel of UN’s World Food Program.INS Sunayna completed the escort for the first time since counter-piracy deployments began in 2008, following an escort request by EU NAVFOR.A WFP dhow was transporting 360 tons of food aid from Bosaso to Berbera, in northern Somalia. Over 1.5 million people face acute levels of food insecurity in Somalia, and 2.6 million are internally displaced.INS Sunayna has been deployed for anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden since October 6, 2018. EU NAVFOR sent an escort request to other international naval forces earlier in December, to which the Indian Navy responded. This support demonstrates the good work and cooperation that can be achieved in the region between the EU and partner nations.Coordinated efforts between EU NAVFOR and other international maritime organisations are vital to ensure the free flow and safe passage of commerce around the Horn of Africa. The frequent Shared Awareness and De-confliction (SHADE) conferences held in Bahrain provide a critical mechanism to work out and share best practices.As of 8 January 2019, EU NAVFOR and its key regional partners have protected 450 WFP vessels and enabled the safe delivery of nearly 1.8 million tonnes of aid into Somalia since the commencement of operation Atalanta in December 2008.

Drag Race comes to Oxford

first_imgOxford’s streets will see an influx of multicoloured flags and cross-dressing this Saturday as the second annual Drag Race takes place in the city centre. The event will be hosted by Oxford Pride, a non-profit organisation founded in 2002 which describes itself as “a celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life in Oxfordshire”. Through sponsorship, the event aims to raise money and awareness for the local LGBT community.This year’s event will see large numbers of people making their way through Oxford’s streets in drag. Meeting at midday at the Jolly Farmers, the race will begin at 1pm, progressing down Cornmarket Street and Queen Street, and will finish on Paradise Street.An information booth will be set up outside the Westgate Centre all day, where information can be found on Oxford Pride and about the wider LGBT community in Oxford.Rafe Jeune, the Chair of the Oxford Pride Group, stressed the community-centric and family-centric nature of the event. He commented, “I am looking forward to the celebration of what we have achieved as a community, and to bringing everyone in Oxford together. Not just LGBT people, but everybody. I think it is great when we see people bringing their families who are not necessarily LGBT, and everyone celebrates together.“This is always a fun and colourful day that helps to raise awareness of the LGBT community in Oxford while raising much needed funds”.Some students, however, seemed confused by the notion of a Drag Race. One New College undergraduate said, “I attended this event last year hoping to compare the skills on show with my carefully honed Need for Speed ability, only to find myself surprised by the nature of the event and lack of automobiles – madness!”Another added, “The high heels were a definite mistake. Although they made my legs look great, it wasn’t worth the pain…or the blisters the next day!”last_img read more

EPA Announces New Method To Test For Additional PFAS In Drinking Water

first_imgThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) took another key step in implementing the agency’s PFAS Action Plan by announcing a new validated method for testing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in drinking water. This new validated test method complements other actions the agency is taking under the Action Plan to help communities address PFAS nationwide.“EPA’s important scientific advancement makes it possible for both government and private laboratories to effectively measure more PFAS chemicals in drinking water than ever before,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “We can now measure 29 chemicals, marking a critical step in implementing the agency’s PFAS Action Plan—the most comprehensive cross-agency plan ever to address an emerging chemical of concern.”EPA’s new validated Method 533 focuses on “short chain” PFAS, those PFAS with carbon chain lengths of four to 12. Method 533 complements EPA Method 537.1 and can be used to test for 11 additional PFAS.Method 533 accomplishes a key milestone in the EPA PFAS Action Plan by meeting the agency’s commitment to develop new validated methods to accurately test for additional PFAS in drinking water. Method 533 also incorporates an analytical technique called isotope dilution, which can minimize sample matrix interference and improve data quality.For more information visit: www.epa.gov/pfasBackground on the PFAS Action PlanPFAS are a large group of man-made chemicals used in consumer products and industrial processes. In use since the 1940s, PFAS are resistant to heat, oils, stains, grease, and water—properties which contribute to their persistence in the environment.The agency’s PFAS Action Plan is the first multi-media, multi-program, national research, management, and risk communication plan to address a challenge like PFAS. The plan responds to the extensive public input the agency received during the PFAS National Leadership Summit, multiple community engagements, and through the public docket. The PFAS Action Plan outlines the tools EPA is developing to assist states, tribes, and communities in addressing PFAS.EPA is taking the following highlighted actions:Highlighted Action: Drinking WaterEPA is committed to following the national primary drinking water regulation rulemaking process as established by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).EPA has sent the proposed regulatory determination for PFOA and PFOS to the Office of Management and Budget for interagency review.The agency is also gathering and evaluating information to determine if regulation is appropriate for other chemicals in the PFAS family.Highlighted Action: CleanupOn June 10, 2019, EPA concluded public comment on the draft Interim Recommendations for Addressing Groundwater Contaminated with PFOA and PFOS, when finalized it will provide cleanup guidance for federal cleanup programs (e.g., CERCLA and RCRA) that will be helpful to states and tribes.EPA will follow through on the regulatory development process for listing perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).Highlighted Action: MonitoringEPA will propose nationwide drinking water monitoring for PFAS under the next UCMR monitoring cycle.Highlighted Action: ToxicsEPA has issued an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking that would allow the public to provide input on adding PFAS to the Toxics Release Inventory toxic chemical list.A supplemental proposal to ensure that certain persistent long-chain PFAS chemicals cannot be manufactured in or imported into the United States without notification and review under TSCA is currently undergoing interagency review at the Office of Management and Budget.Highlighted Action: Surface Water ProtectionEPA is exploring data availability and research to support the development of Clean Water Act human health and aquatic life criteria for certain PFASEPA is examining available information about PFAS released into surface waters by industrial sources to determine if additional study is needed for potential regulation.Highlighted Action: BiosolidsEPA is in the early scoping stages of risk assessments for PFOA and PFOS in biosolids to better understand any potential health impacts.Highlighted Action: ResearchOn November 22, 2019, EPA announced availability of $4.8 million in funding for new research on managing PFAS in agriculture.EPA continues to compile and assess human and ecological toxicity information on PFAS to support risk management decisions.EPA continues to develop new methods to test for additional PFAS in drinking water.The agency is also validating analytical methods for surface water, ground water, wastewater, soils, sediments and biosolids; developing new methods to test for PFAS in air and emissions; and improving laboratory methods to discover unknown PFAS.EPA is developing exposure models to understand how PFAS moves through the environment to impact people and ecosystems.EPA continues to assess and review treatment methods for removing PFAS in drinking water.EPA is working to develop tools to assist officials with the cleanup of contaminated sites.Highlighted Action: EnforcementEPA uses enforcement tools, when appropriate, to address PFAS exposure in the environment and assists states in enforcement activities.EPA has already taken actions to address PFAS, including issuing Safe Drinking Water Act orders and providing support to states. See examples in the PFAS Action Plan.Highlighted Action: Risk CommunicationsEPA will work collaboratively to develop a risk communication toolbox that includes multi-media materials and messaging for federal, state, tribal, and local partners to use with the public.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Use strategy to enhance your credit union’s culture

first_img 43SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Stuart R. Levine Founded in 1996, Stuart Levine & Associates LLC is an international strategic planning and leadership development company with focus on adding member value by strengthening corporate culture.SL&A … Web: www.Stuartlevine.com Details Your strategic planning process must address a dramatic level of change that credit unions face in today’s world of rapidly evolving technology, regulation and economic dislocation. You need every competitive advantage to compete effectively. The strategic planning process, when done well, can provide huge advantages to your organization.   It is a great opportunity to improve employee engagement and enhance your organizational culture. An engaged culture is critical to the execution of strategy. Studies show that an engaged workforce is correlated with multiple benefits including a higher financial return. Successful strategy involves paying attention to your people. They are the foundation who will carry out the ideas and ensure that your strategies are executed and goals are achieved.  An effective planning process relies on inclusion and candor. Confidential data gathered from a representation of your employees, not just senior leaders, create a foundational platform upon which the plan is based.  Participants engage with each other to share honest critical thinking. Everyone understands that their input matters and their voices will be heard. This level of inclusion generates enthusiasm and motivates people to have a say in creating the plan which builds ownership and accountability towards its achievement. Outside advisors are usually retained to ensure this process is conducted independently and everyone can become an active participant.   Tailored instruments are created for in-person interviews and employee surveys, and a thoughtful sharing of findings can be provided without individual attribution. Personal one-on-one interviews with senior managers are supplemented with other tools, including digital surveys, to gather data broadly and deeply.  Internal information is augmented by external data from members, the community, the financial services industry, and even from the competition. This comprehensive data platform forms the baseline for the creation of strategy, giving a full and accurate picture of the credit union’s current standing, and a good read on how your people see the future. Any successful strategy is founded on your credit union’s mission, vision, and core values. Senior leadership defines the three to five key drivers through which the organization’s mission will be fulfilled and vision will be achieved. They are clarified and refined into a prioritized set of strategies and goal statements. Performance metrics for each key strategic driver are articulated and become dashboard items that are shared throughout the organization. The process is disciplined. There is a clear understanding that people are being held accountable. Moreover, the inclusive planning process means that people feel ownership and responsibility for the success of the strategy.Clear, simple, and direct strategic communication is designed to assure that everyone is on the same page in understanding the mission, vision, and core values. Values and your culture are also strategic weapons in the recruitment of talent to carry out any plan. Now more than ever, capable people are focused on alignment of their personal and organizational values.  They list values as a top reason to either join or avoid an organization. Your effective strategic planning process can accomplish many things including strategically preparing your organization effectively for the future, enhancing your culture, and ensuring that your credit union has a strong edge to face the future. last_img read more
