The Senate GOP will meet next week to decide on bringing earmarks, funding members can use for their districts, back. Some GOP Senators opposed bringing earmarks back because of past abuses with the funding measure. Almost a month after House Republicans voted to approve the restoration of earmarks, Senate Republicans are expected to meet next week to discuss bringing back the so-called community funding measures. But now, both House Democrats and House Republicans have voted to bring them back, and Senate Republicans are set to meet next Wednesday to ratify their rules and discuss earmark usage, according to Bloomberg. On March 17, House Republicans voted by secret ballot to bring earmarks back as well.

GOP leadership insists less than 6% of Biden's plan goes to roads and bridges, ignoring EV investments. Amid arguments over the definition of infrastructure, Republicans are making false statements about President Joe Biden's $2 trillion infrastructure bill and labeling the Democratic effort as "socialist." "They're talking about an infrastructure bill. "Over 90% of the bill they're proposing has nothing to do with roads and bridges," he continued. "People would expect, if you're gonna have a $2 trillion bill, that it would be all about roads and bridges.

Credit Suisse Group AG flagged around $2.3 billion in problematic loans in its Greensill Capital funds, giving investors in the funds a more concrete sense of the size of their potential losses from the U.K. firm’s demise. The Swiss bank is liquidating $10 billion in a group of funds it ran with Greensill. In a Tuesday update, Credit Suisse said so far it has gotten $5.4 billion back for investors. The bank said three borrowers are “driving the valuation uncertainty” in the remainder of the four funds’ investments. GFG companies owe the funds $1.2 billion, while Bluestone owes $690 million.

Sen. Roger Wicker downplayed the odds of an infrastructure deal that included rolling back Trump's tax cuts. The law slashed it to that level from 35%, and Biden wants to lift it to 28% to generate federal dollars for his infrastructure plan. Biden administration officials said it was part of an effort to shore up support for their infrastructure plan. The Biden infrastructure plan includes major funding to repair roads and bridges and set up clean energy incentives. Republicans are lining up in opposition to the Biden infrastructure plan.

With the exception of 7/1 ARM rates, all rates have increased since this time last month. Fixed rates are starting much lower than adjustable rates, and you'll lock in a low rate for the entire life of your loan. Rates will probably stay low for a while, so you may not need to hurry to buy to take advantage of low rates. However, a 15-year fixed mortgage will cost less overall than a 30-year fixed mortgage. 30-year fixed ratesA 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is similar to a 15-year mortgage, except you'll pay off the mortgage over 30 years.

If one thing is clear about remote work, it's this: Many people prefer it and don't want their bosses to take it away. We spent years studying "digital nomads" — workers who had left behind their homes, cities and most of their possessions to embark on what they call "location independent" lives. Big-city bait and switchMost digital nomads started out excited to work in career-track jobs for prestigious employers. Yet these digital nomads told us that their jobs were far less interesting and creative than they had been led to expect. The digital nomads we studied often used savings in time and money to try new things, like exploring side hustles.

West Virginia is launching a new program aimed at luring remote workers to the state. Called Ascend WV, the program offers $12,000 cash and other benefits to workers who relocate. West Virginia is hoping to lure remote workers to the Mountain State with the promise of $12,000 and a year's worth of free outdoor activities. Smith is a West Virginia native and said in a statement that he hopes the program will allow West Virginia to "capitalize on national workforce trends" by leveraging the state's access to outdoor pursuits. West Virginia is one of a handful of states hoping to entice remote workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Meeting Mr. Roosevelt was like, as Winston Churchill said, “opening your first bottle of champagne”; meeting Mr. Biden is like one’s first encounter with a tail-wagging therapy dog. Mr. Roosevelt essentially invented intimacy in mass communications. He recalled that when he was writing his first Fireside Chat, he looked out the window of the White House and saw the inaugural scaffolding being taken down. Whatever the future holds, Mr. Biden and Mr. Roosevelt are now fused in history by the size and breadth of their progressive ambitions. Mr. Biden was lucky enough to have been elected when what the historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. called “the cycles of American history” are spinning left.

Albert Campo certified public accountantThe IRS is issuing federal tax refunds automatically starting in May. Taxpayers won't have to file an amended federal tax return unless the unemployment tax break makes them newly eligible for tax benefits like the earned income tax credit. For one, a dozen states aren't offering the federal tax break on unemployment benefits, meaning workers have state tax liability. In such cases, taxpayers who filed early may need to file an amended state tax return to get a state tax refund. 12 statesTwelve states aren't offering the unemployment tax break, according to H&R Block data as of April 5.

Yet the path ahead for Democrats looks very different from the one that produced a $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package, which Biden signed into law in March. Here are four reasons Democratic push for a huge infrastructure package will be tougher than their scramble to pass stimulus. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has suggested she wants the House to approve an infrastructure plan by July 4. The coronavirus relief package was geared to provide immediate relief to cash-strapped families and laid-off workers. Biden's infrastructure plan forms a pillar of his Build Back Better agenda, designed to be a series of long-term initiatives.

Biden held his first official meeting with eight bipartisan lawmakers to discuss infrastructure. Republican lawmakers argue his plan is too focused on things aside from physical infrastructure. For the first time since unveiling his $2.3 trillion infrastructure package two weeks ago, President Joe Biden met with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Monday to discuss the proposal. And with regards to the size of the plan, Republican lawmakers have said the $2.3 trillion price tag, along with Biden's proposed tax hikes, are too high. Psaki emphasized in the Monday press briefing that Biden genuinely wants to work with both parties to create a bipartisan infrastructure bill.

Joe Manchin’s path to becoming the Democrats’ most confounding U.S. senator started with a rejection within his own party. Mr. Manchin, then a state senator and small-business owner, was running for West Virginia governor in 1996, his first bid for statewide office. Banking and insurance groups endorsed him, along with the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce and the National Rifle Association. At union gatherings, coal miners wore T-shirts with Mr. Manchin’s name crossed out. Mr. Manchin lost the Democratic primary to a union-backed candidate.

Amazon Vote Deals Blow to Expanding Labor Union Membership

Workers’ rejection of a union at Amazon.com Inc.’s warehouse in Bessemer, Ala., is a setback to organized labor’s efforts to reverse a decadeslong decline in private-sector membership nationally. The Alabama result underscores unions’ challenges in increasing membership in the U.S. private sector, where they represent just 6.3% of workers, down from 24.2% in 1973, according to data from Georgia State University. For unions, the time appeared ripe to organize workers in an expanding sector and an environment where labor unions traditionally have operated: a large blue-collar site where many employees do similar jobs. The effort failed despite President Biden’s endorsement, his stated goal of creating more union jobs and a renewed embrace of labor by many congressional Democrats. Last year, more union members worked for the government than for private-sector employers, according to the Labor Department, showing the public sector is now the stronghold of organized labor.
