Round Two Paycheck Protection Program Loans: Will Californians Get Money This Time Around?

(CBS13) — Round two of the Paycheck Protection Program began Monday, with $310 billion available in forgivable small business loans. But the first round of funding ran out in days — and banks were criticized for giving the money to big business instead of mom and pop shops. In early April, John Richards lined up with everyone else hopeful his long-time big bank would process the Paycheck Protection loan he needed to keep his pharmacy afloat. But like most, he left empty-handed. Four big banks, i...

Klobuchar Timed Her Dropping Out To Help Deliver Minnesota To Biden

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) liked the idea of ending her campaign with a win in Minnesota — but ultimately decided to drop out earlier to help deliver her home state to former Vice President Joe Biden. “Then, the big overwhelming thing was I knew I was going to win my state,” she told the New York Times. “And I thought, ‘Well, that would be good. Good way to end.’ But then I thought, why would I just do that for myself? Maybe I can actually deliver this for Joe Biden knowing that he was at like...

(LINCOLN, Neb.) — Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri are joining forces for a study that will look for ways the states can limit flooding along the Missouri River and give them information about how wetter weather patterns could require changes in the way the U.S. government manages the basins reservoirs.

Trump Aid Means Farms Are Doing Better Than Before Trade War

(Bloomberg) -- Donald Trump is boasting that he’s made farmers “really happy.” He’s not wrong, but it’s not just the trade deal that’s left farmers optimistic for 2020.Analysts are saying the accord signed this week mostly just takes trade back to normal for American agriculture. China has committed to $32 billion in additional purchases over two years, but that buying will be market dependent and retaliatory tariffs are still in place. Even the status quo is still a welcome relief after more th...

Exclusive: More than 1 million acres of U.S. cropland ravaged by floods

Farms from the Dakotas to Missouri and beyond have been under water for a week or more, possibly impeding planting and damaging soil. The floods, which came just weeks before planting season starts in the Midwest, will likely reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year. "There's thousands of acres that won't be able to be planted," Ryan Sonderup, 36, of Fullerton, Nebraska, who has been farming for 18 years, said in a recent interview.

US weather: States reel from historic floods as fresh snow threatens parts of the midwest

Record floods that submerged parts of three Midwestern states have started retreating, but more inclement weather continues to threaten Montana and the Dakotas for weeks to come. High flood waters have already returned in the western Dakotas, northwest Nebraska and central and eastern Montana, along smaller rivers that feed into the Missouri. Once the weather warms up, river ice breaks up into giant chunks, which float down the river stream and can cause a jam, which in turn induces flooding, ...
