HOA Opens, slew of Health Bills on Agenda; Key questions to Border Control Minister Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Oct 2014 – Provo may never experience the flooding as had been seen in the deluge of TS Cristobal again. We have learned that Government has spent $162 thousand dollars on wells & drains and new wells & drains in the aftermath of that retreating rainy system which grid locked the nation for over a week. Seventeen drains have been re-drilled, while 14 new drainage wells have been dug – all on the island of Providenciales. New wells will mean more run off points for any prolonged rains, the flooding so severe that it trapped people and created health risks. The Ministry of Health on Tuesday confirmed that those flood waters and the fact that they became mosquito breeding grounds did cause the cases of Dengue Fever and Chikungunya to surge dramatically for Turks and Caicos. The figures so high and changing so rapidly, especially in the case of Dengue Fever, that officials explained they are still collating numbers… and never gave new numbers for Dengue which is linked to one death in Grand Turk. There are now five new wells in Leeward; three in Long Bay; two in Blue Hills and one each for Juba Sound, Caicos Lodge and Airport Road. The re-drilled wells included the five in Leeward, four in Five Cays, four in The Bight, two in Kew Town and one each for Juba Sound and Long Bay.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR Many House Republicans have been eager to suspend the chamber’s eight-year-old ban on earmarks, but House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recently has been urging the GOP Conference to step back and let Democrats make the first move when they assume control of the House in the 116th Congress. “Let the new party wrestle with whether they want to do that. The first move is theirs on this issue now,” Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), chairman of the House Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee, told Politico.The House Democratic Conference is expected to consider reinstating earmarks, sometimes referred to as congressionally directed spending by lawmakers, when it meets to set its own rules for legislation. Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), who is expected to become chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, said she does not know how Democratic members would vote on a resolution to restore earmarks. “But if there is bipartisan consensus, it’s in Article I, and we have a right to have them. And if there’s bipartisan support, they can come back,” Lowey said.If the Democratic Conference in the House moves to bring back earmarks, the chamber still would need to coordinate with the Senate to ensure the change wouldn’t hold up new spending measures.
