Trump feels shutdown pressure from economists, Nancy Pelosi

By LISA MASCARO, CATHERINE LUCEY and JILL COLVIN WASHINGTON — Shutdown pressure on President Donald Trump mounted Wednesday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on him to delay his State of the Union address and his own economists acknowledged the prolonged standoff was having a greater economic drag than previously thought. In a letter to Trump, Pelosi cited security concerns, noting that both Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security are affected by the partial government shutdown...

Congress Will Skip Planned Recess If Shutdown Continues

WASHINGTON (AP) — Staring down the next deadline to pay federal workers, the White House shifted tactics, trying to bypass House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to negotiate with rank-and-file lawmakers even as President Donald Trump dug in for a prolonged shutdown. The House and Senate announced Tuesday they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely. On the shutdown’s 25th day Tuesday, Trump did not move off his demand to have Congre...

The Ultimate Guide to States with Laws Requiring Collection of Internet Sales Tax

As of June 21, 2018, the United States Supreme Court changed the laws regarding the collection of sales tax by internet sellers. The Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc., established that individual states can require ecommerce retailers to collect state sales tax on the goods they sell. The ruling overturned previous law which made the consumer responsible for paying sales taxes to the state, rather than through the retailer. The former legislation meant that states were only a...

Best things about Indianapolis

In a sea of cornfields and conservatism, Indiana’s bustling capital of Indianapolis is an island. From the independent art galleries on Mass Ave. to the vintage boutiques in Fountain Square, Indy has steadily been making a name for itself one of the Midwest’s preeminent cultural hubs. Sure, it’s no Chicago — but that’s a good thing if you hate crowds. For now, it’s one of the best-kept secrets south of the Great Lakes. But no one is quite sure how much longer the city can fly under the radar...

These states drink the most wine

People in the US are drinking more wine than ever before — twice as much as in the 1960s, according to the National Institutes of Health. And while Americans are sipping more vino from coast to coast and northern border to southern border, some states are breaking out the bottles more than others. The NIH compiled data on exactly how much wine each state drinks based on wine sales (which it calls “apparent alcohol consumption for the States”) in 2016, and the results might not be what you’d...

Montana GOPer Proposes State Give ‘Small Token’ Of $8M For Trump’s Wall

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana politician is proposing the state give more than $8 million to help build President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the Mexican border as a government shutdown over the $5.7 billion project continues. The proposal seems unlikely to pass in a state with a Democratic governor exploring a run for president. At least one other state, South Dakota, is considering voicing support for Trump’s wall.

6 top tax issues of 2018 and what to expect in 2019

Whew! We made it through 2018, the first full year that the latest major tax law changes were in effect. Now we're about to see, depending on when Congress and the White House can agree to get the government (including the Internal Revenue Service) fully operational, if we can deal with the first tax filing season under those laws. But before we get lost in the intricacies of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), I'm taking this one early day in 2019 to look at the six tax stories that turned out t...

Trevor’s Travels: Rejuvenated Integratron draws Earthlings to Mojave Desert site

The desert is definitely blooming — not with plants and flowers, it’s a little too late in the season for that, but with humans. Driving through the Mojave Desert recently from Lucerne Valley to Yucca Valley, it was obvious to me that there were a lot more houses out in the desert than before. In the late autumn sun, there were reflections of windows out in this normally vast empty space. Mailboxes seem to have sprung up everywhere. One of the stops that I have made in the past, when driving alo...

In South Dakota, the Yankton County Commissioners have approved the conditional use permit for a proposed $200 million ethanol plant in Napa Junction which will allow the project to continue development with an eye to start construction this summer after securing state and federal permits.

Wealthy donors giving more, getting added tax breaks

Yes, I know I've been a bit fixated the last few days on charitable giving. But it is Christmas week, the traditional time of giving gifts, which also coincides with nonprofits' annual year-end quest for more money. Those solicitations are more intense this year as charities are dealing with the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Standard increase could cut into charitable gifts: The new tax law essentially doubled the standard deduction amounts. That means more folks are likely to c...
