Merkel lashed out at comments made by Thilo Sarrazin, who joined Bundesbank’s board last year, and said the bank should dismiss him. Sarrazin, who released a book on immigration yesterday, was quoted telling a German newspaper that “all Jews share a particular gene”.Merkel said his comments have harmed “the bank’s reputation domestically and abroad”.The Bundesbank board has sought to distance itself from Sarrazin although it has not called for his resignation. A statement said: “The Bundesbank board is of the view that Dr Sarrazin’s comments hurt the image of the Bundesbank.”Sarrazin’s book, Germany Abolishes Itself, is a critical look at immigration in the country. He says his comments have been taken out of context. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy Fanautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite Herald whatsapp Tags: NULL last_img read more

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Among them: The minimum age to purchase firearms was raised to 21; a three-day waiting period was imposed to buy firearms; bump stocks were banned, and greater authority was granted to law enforcement to seize weapons under red-flag laws.Since Florida became one of 16 states and the District of Columbia to adopt red-flag laws under SB 7026, they have been applied more than 3,500 times to confiscate firearms from individuals who police agencies and civil courts have deemed under mental duress or threatening, according to an Associated Press analysis.Of the slate of gun-control and gun-rights bills filed for the 2020 session, only two have advanced into committee hearings: SB 7028, sponsored by Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, which would close to the so-called gun-show loophole, and House Bill 183, filed by Rep. Mel Ponder, R-Fort Walton Beach, which would allow elected members of governing bodies with concealed weapons permits to carry at public meetings.HB 183 has passed three committees and awaits adoption on the House floor. Its Senate companion, SB 1524, sponsored by Sen. George Gainer, R-Panama City, however, has not been heard in any Senate committees.SB 7028, which proposes to create a record-keeping system for private gun sales and to set aside $5 million to establish a statewide strategy for violence prevention, also would expand the state’s red-flag law.The Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee unanimously endorsed the measure Jan. 13, the day before the session formally convened. It has not been heard before a committee since and has been criticized as unnecessary by House Leader Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes.

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The bill may go before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week, in its final meeting of the session, but Lee has conceded “all of the common-sense gun legislation is going to be very difficult to pass procedurally.” As the 60-day session marked its midpoint this week and the state observed the somber two-year anniversary of the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Friday, few of the bills have had committee hearings, and not one is likely to pass.In the wake of the school shooting that left 17 dead in Parkland, the Legislature, which was in session at the time, adopted Senate Bill 7026, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act – a quickly assembled, $400 million response that included several gun-control measures previously inconceivable in Florida. More than 100 gun-control bills and dozens of gun-rights bills were introduced by Florida lawmakers before the 2020 legislative session began in January. Please enter your comment!last_img read more

Stutzman Renews Efforts to Split Farm Bill from SNAP

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Stutzman Renews Efforts to Split Farm Bill from SNAP Facebook Twitter Marlin StutzmanAhead of the 4th of July recess – there was talk amongst House Republicans about splitting the farm bill into two measures. Several Congressmen who voted against the measure would like to split farm programs from nutrition programs. Indiana Representative Marlin Stutzman actually offered an amendment to the Rules Committee to split the FARRM Act apart – but it was ruled out of order. He said last week (week of June 24) what has worked in the past didn’t work. He said during a House Republican Conference meeting that members could moan and groan and blame each other or admit times have changed, things are different and a different strategy is needed. Stutzman argued the best way forward is to separate the agriculture language of the bill from the nutrition program and work on them individually. Facebook Twitter Stutzman Renews Efforts to Split Farm Bill from SNAP By Gary Truitt – Jun 29, 2013 According to Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina – a group of members told leadership they would vote for the agriculture portion with no problems if the bill were split. But according to House Ag Chair Frank Lucas – splitting the bill is unacceptable. Splitting the bill – he said – simply means not having a bill. Lucas said that is the least acceptable option – but everything else is on the table and he’s working through the scenarios with his friends. Lucas had said earlier in the week that leaders have to decide if they need to try for more Republican support or seek to bring on new Democrats.

The Bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Siddhartha Varma refused to grant permission for organizing the festival as the same is “subject to guidelines prescribed by the Government of Uttar Pradesh to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.” It asked the Petitioners, Pronob Kumar Roy and another, to “agitate their cause before the District Magistrate, Prayagraj who will consider the cause in accordance with law and by taking into consideration the necessary guidelines given by the Government of Uttar Pradesh.” The Petitioners had sought permission to organise Durga Puja under the guidelines laid by the Central/ State/ District Administration on the eve of COVID-19. They had sought for a writ in the nature of mandamus, directing the district and police administration to call a meeting of the office bearers of the Bengali Welfare Association and the Durga Puja Committee, at least 21 days prior to taking any decision in this regard, for appraisal of their difficulties. The writ was however disposed of with a direction to approach the Magistrate. A similar direction was passed by the High Court earlier this year, in a plea seeking permission to open mosques for offering Eid prayers in congregation. Plea Seeking Opening Of Mosques Offering Eid Prayers: Allahabad HC Directs Petitioner To Approach State Authorities First Recently, the High Court permitted Majlis (religious congregation) at the Waqaf Imambada Masjid, subject to Unlock-4 guidelines and ensuring social distancing norms. “Considering the fact that no orders have been passed and only the petitioners are being restrained by means of oral communication, it is clear that the rights of the petitioner enshrined under Article 19(1) read with Article 25 are being denied without any reasons whatsoever,” the High Court had observed.
