    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Senate Republicans on Monday released a $2.73 billion proposal to repay the state’s debt to the federal government for unemployment benefits during the pandemic and prevent a looming tax hike on businesses. Minnesota’s unemployment trust fund swung from a $1.7 billion balance in January 2020 to a deficit of $1.2 billion after businesses closed or laid off workers due to the pandemic and more than 1.3 million Minnesotans applied for unemployment benefits from the start of the pandemic through September 2021.

Jason...

There has been much talk of "transitory" inflation, "stagflation," or, as I have described it, "panflation," or pandemic-induced inflation. I have altered my view about this environment, to a degree, after a trip to Savannah, Georgia this week, where I spoke to members of the Savannah Economic Development Authority. Among those in attendance were officials in charge of Savannah's port, the fourth-largest port in the U.S. Unlike some others, JP Morgan's Jamie Dimon for instance, port officials were a little less sanguine that global supply chain disruptions, and attendant shortages of material goods, will abate by mid-2022. They believe these issues will dog us into the autumn and, quite possibly, for all of next year. With a massive shortage of dockworkers,...

Bayer vowed to keep defending its weedkiller Roundup after losing a second trial over claims it causes cancer, indicating that the embattled company isn't yet ready to consider spending billions of dollars to settle thousands of similar lawsuits. The company said it reached an agreement with plaintiffs’ lawyers that it is presenting to a San Francisco federal judge who last year rejected a $1.25 billion proposal, according to a statement issued by Bayer Wednesday. The company said it disclosed in 2020 that it made provisions...
    More On: new york sports club NYSC can’t charge members whose gyms remain closed, judge rules NY Sports Clubs illegally profited off shutdown measures, AG says NYSC sets aside $850,000 to pay back members it billed during shutdowns New York Sports Clubs’ bankrupt owner secures $20 million loan The owner of New York Sports Clubs will work to resolve complaints about its controversial billing practices under a court order approving the company’s bankruptcy plan. The plan paves the way for a group of lenders including private equity firm Tacit Capital to take control of Town Sports International in exchange for $80 million of the company’s debt, according to Bloomberg News. The attorneys general of Massachusetts and the District of Columbia objected to the plan earlier this week, citing Town Sports’ practice of charging customers for membership dues while their gyms were closed during the coronavirus pandemic. In his order approving the Chapter 11 plan, US Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Sontchi said the New York-based chain will “reasonably cooperate with the offices of the Massachusetts and Washington DC Attorneys General to...
    RALEIGH, N.C. – Pending a legal review, the North Carolina State Board of Elections is suspending steps to allow voters to correct absentee ballots lacking the required witness signature by signing an affidavit. In a memo sent to county elections officials on Thursday, the state board's executive director, Karen Brinson Bell, ordered them to hit the brakes on the plan. “Absentee envelopes with a missing witness signature shall be kept in a secure location and shall not be considered by the county board until further notice," Bell wrote. Last week's memo had directed counties to send out affidavits to the thousands of voters who need to correct witness-related issues in order for their ballots to count. State data has shown that ballots cast by Black voters have been set aside by county boards because of incomplete witness information at a higher rate than other voters. Before the state began encouraging the use of affidavits, local elections officials had to send out an entirely new ballot for voters to complete with all the necessary information. A federal judge on...

Cuomo emphasized New York exceptionalism all around in his morning press conference Thursday, coyly letting the de Blasio Administration know that there is still an April deadline for submitting a plan to address police violence against communities of color while railing against the crime wave that has come into the national radar and drawn criticism from President Donald Trump. “For any state that could be the first COVID free state, how about the state that can say our population is vaccinated… What are the advantages of that state in terms of public confidence, economic development, etcetera? You feel now the advantages that New York has to having a lower infection rate? People want to come here, they...
