One million people have signed up for health coverage under an Affordable Care Act special enrollment period announced earlier this year, officials said Tuesday. "That’s one million more Americans who now have the peace of mind that comes from having health insurance," President Joe Biden said in a statement. Biden issued an executive order in late January to open a special enrollment period from Feb. 15 to May 15. The federal ACA insurance marketplace typically is open for a limited annual enrollment period, usually six weeks at the end of the year. The overall $1.8 trillion proposed package also includes universal preschool, two years of free community college and expanded access to child care.

Biden Faces Russian Test Over Aid in Syria

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration is bracing for a showdown with Russia over the delivery of United Nations aid to millions of Syrians outside the control of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a flow that Moscow is poised to block in July. At stake is the U.N.’s use of the Bab al-Hawa border crossing between Syria and Turkey, which the world body has used to send about 1,000 truckloads of aid a month to a region in northwest Syria with a population of more than four million. The U.S. and its allies say the closure of the border to the U.N. would put civilians in jeopardy, especially the 2.7 million people in the area who have been displaced by the conflict. The U.N. also has just started its Covid-19 vaccination campaign in the area, an effort not easily replaced by another organization. “It’s clear that the stakes are quite high,” said a U.S. official at the U.N. “We’ll be actively engaged both with like-minded countries who are standing with us on this and with others who have expressed some skepticism.”

Biden Tax Proposal Would Squeeze Apartment-Building Owners

The tax treatment enables investors to defer capital-gains taxes if they invest profits from a real-estate sale into another property. It is used to buy and sell most types of real estate, but it has been a primary source of capital for apartment-building investors. “I think that the industry concern is that this will very much hamper transactions, and it will also then hamper reinvestment in improvements in local economies,” Ms. Conklin said. President Biden proposed limiting the profits that investors can defer from 1031 exchanges to $500,000. U.S. investors save billions on their tax bills this way every year.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Federal Reserve and other bank regulators should force banks to hold more cash to guard against potential losses due to climate change and possible steps to fight it, one of Washington’s top liberal think tanks said on Tuesday. The paper argues that regulators could move quickly to bolster banks’ capital cushions by establishing several new safeguards, including a new capital surcharge directly tied to how much pollution banks directly finance and heightened stress tests of big banks that incorporate climate risks. After lagging European counterparts on climate change under the Trump administration, the Fed has ramped up efforts in recent months, including devoting new staff specifically to exploring how climate change could affect the economy and the financial system. But the Fed has yet to adopt any new policies in response to climate change, which some argue are already overdue. It adds the Fed should go farther with the largest banks, imposing a new capital surcharge directly tied to how much carbon they finance with their activities.

REUTERS/Leah MillisThe U.S. Federal Reserve should force banks to hold more cash to guard against potential losses due to climate change and possible steps to fight it, one of Washington's top liberal think tanks said on Tuesday. After lagging European counterparts on climate change under the Trump administration, the Fed has ramped up efforts in recent months, including devoting new staff specifically to exploring how climate change could impact the economy and the financial system. "It is increasingly clear that climate change could have important implications for the Federal Reserve in carrying out its responsibilities," said Fed Governor Lael Brainard in a March speech. But the Fed has yet to adopt any new policies in response to climate change, a move the paper argues the regulator can ill afford.

"While certainly would have preferred a W, I send my heartfelt congratulations to @glennyoungkin on a tremendous race + deserved win. Virginia's off-year governor's election, which always takes place the year after a presidential election, is often read as a bellwether of the national mood a year into a new presidential term.

Five young undocumented migrants, including a 2-year-old and an infant, were by themselves when they were apprehended in South Texas at the U.S.-Mexico border, authorities said Monday. The oldest of the migrants, all of whom were girls from Honduras and Guatemala, was 7, Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. An agent with Customs and Border Patrol spotted the girls near Normandy, about 2½ hours southwest of San Antonio, on Sunday, the agency said. As of Friday, Mayorkas said, 700 children were in Border Patrol custody across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, down from a record of nearly 6,000 in March. The children apprehended Sunday were taken to a processing facility before being transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, according to Customs and Border Protection.

A growing number of Republican-led states are moving to end the extra $300 a week in Covid-19 pandemic-related unemployment benefits, arguing that the relief is discouraging U.S. workers from rejoining the labor force. "The purpose of unemployment benefits is to temporarily assist Mississippians who are unemployed through no fault of their own." Reeves directed the state to enforce all eligibility requirements to receive unemployment benefits, a process that was waived during the pandemic. "Incentives matter, and the vast expansion of federal unemployment benefits is now doing more harm than good. He said in a letter Friday that the federal unemployment measures "have accomplished their purposes."

Wind, Solar Power Made Strong Gains in 2020, IEA Says
  + stars: | 2021-05-11 | by ( David Hodari | ) + 0.78   time to read: +1 min
Renewable power capacity grew at its fastest pace this century in 2020, the International Energy Agency said Tuesday, raising its growth forecast for wind and solar power for this year and next. The addition to the world’s renewable electricity capacity last year was 45% more than in the prior year—the biggest jump since 1999—as wind and solar farms sprang up across the world’s major economies, the IEA said in a report. The increase of 280 gigawatts in 2020 was partly driven by a rush to complete projects before government subsidies elapsed in China, the U.S. and Vietnam. The IEA raised its 2021 and 2022 growth forecasts by around 25%, with an addition of 270 gigawatts in capacity expected this year and 280 gigawatts next year. Growing demand for renewable power comes as governments and companies around the world try to cut carbon emissions with the aim of limiting global warming.

REUTERS/Yuri Gripas/File PhotoChina should implement its commitments to equal treatment for foreign business and abandon "implicit" guidance to replace foreign products with domestic alternatives, the American Chamber of Commerce in China said on Tuesday. When ties worsen, U.S. firms see poorer implementation of regulations promising equal treatment for foreign business, affecting investment project approvals and market access, said Greg Gilligan, chairman of AmCham China. Legislation promising equal treatment for foreign and domestic companies is only unevenly implemented, said the paper, which also called for emerging sectors like cloud computing to be opened up to foreign companies. U.S.-China tensions were seen as a challenge to doing business in China for 78% of companies polled by AmCham, according to a survey released in March. China also pledged to toughen intellectual property protections, and improve agriculture biotechnology and financial services access for U.S. firms.

Renewable power generation grew at the fastest rate in two decades last year, and that growth is set to continue in the aftermath of the pandemic, according to a new report from the International Energy Agency. IEA sees 270 GW added in 2021, followed by 280 GW in 2022. "Wind and solar power are giving us more reasons to be optimistic about our climate goals as they break record after record," said Fatih Birol, IEA's executive director. IEA believes solar installations will continue to break records, and predicts more than 160 GW installed annually by 2022. "If enacted, the bill would drive a much stronger acceleration in the deployment of renewables after 2022," the report said.

Indeed, Israel’s Supreme Court was slated to rule Monday on whether the Palestinians could be expelled but delayed the decision because of the violence. Palestinians argue that it is unfair that Jews can reclaim land or homes they owned in East Jerusalem before 1948 but Palestinians have no legal means to reclaim land they owned in West Jerusalem or anywhere else in Israel before 1948. Clashes over these sacred dates and sacred spaces would be incendiary enough, but they were also fueled, as I said, by scenes on TikTok. In April, some Palestinian youths uploaded a short video of themselves assaulting an Orthodox Jew on public transportation, as a way of inspiring copycat attacks. By the way, the Biden administration has no interest right now in being forced to react to those headlines.

REUTERS/Drone BaseSupplies of gasoline tightened further in parts of the United States on Tuesday as the shutdown of the nation’s biggest fuel pipeline by hackers entered its fifth day, raising concern about price spikes at the pumps heading into the summer driving season. The top U.S. energy regulator issued a call on Monday for mandatory cybersecurity standards for pipeline operators. It is unknown how much money the hackers are seeking, and Colonial has not commented on whether it would pay. Fuel demand in the southeastern United States, a region that relies heavily on the Colonial system, has already risen as consumers fear looming shortages. The Department of Transportation on Sunday lifted driver restrictions on fuel haulers in 17 states affected by the shutdown.

Semiconductor companies and big businesses that use semiconductor chips have formed a new coalition to push for tens of billions of dollars in federal funding for semiconductor research and manufacturing in the United States. The new group, the Semiconductors in America Coalition, announced its formation on Tuesday amid a global semiconductor shortage that has caused disruptions throughout the economy. Its members include chip companies like Intel, Nvidia and Qualcomm and companies that rely on semiconductors like Apple, Google, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Verizon and AT&T. The coalition is calling on Congress to provide $50 billion in funding for semiconductor research and manufacturing, which President Biden has proposed as part of his $2.3 trillion infrastructure package. “Leaders from a broad range of critical sectors of the U.S. economy, as well as a large and bipartisan group of policymakers in Washington, recognize the essential role of semiconductors in America’s current and future strength,” said John Neuffer, the president and chief executive of the Semiconductor Industry Association, a trade group that represents semiconductor companies.
