Human Resources Regulatory Reporting

House Passes Hydropower Bill  February 13, 2013 – 11:21 pm
Human Resources, Regulatory Reporting and Risk Management

The U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly, 422-0, in favor of a bi-partisan piece of legislation, H.R. 267, would streamline the process for approving certain hydroelectric development and thus allow the use of smaller hydro projects and conduit hydro projects.  The legislation also directs Department of Energy (DOE) to conduct a study on pumped storage project opportunities and to study potential hydropower from existing conduits.

There are two things that strike me about this legislation. First, it appears sensible and straight forward. It has a goal of increasing electricity generated from a renewable source. Second, it is a bi-partisan piece of legislation with members like Reps Rogers, Terry, Walden and Latta supporting it from one side of the isle and Reps. DeGette, Dingell, Markey, Matheson and Lujan on the other side. This is exactly the kind of legislating that we should be doing more of where we find areas that we can agree and we then go out and get it done!

The NAM supports the streamlining of the regulatory process for hydroelectric power development through the elimination of redundant or contradictory regulatory steps and avoiding the imposition of conflicting clauses in other legislative initiatives.

The NAM embraces an “all of the above” energy strategy and hydroelectric power certainly fall into that category. Hydropower is a renewable resource that is clean, efficient and is responsible for more of the Nation’s renewable energy supply than any other source of renewable energy. Hydro provides 67% of the domestic renewable energy and 7% of the total electricity generation. As we streamline the regulatory process and build more hydroelectricity capacity there are job opportunities.

Crisis in the Balkans

Crisis in the Balkans
Kosovo is another illustration of U.S. policy

On March 24, U.S.-led NATO forces launched cruise missiles and bombs at targets in Yugoslavia, “plunging America into a military conflict that President Clinton said was necessary to stop ethnic cleansing and bring stability to Eastern Europe...erely proclaimed with passionate rhetoric. The consequences of such violations have to be assessed carefully—in particular, what we take to be “predictable.” For those who are minimally serious, the reasons for the actions also have to be assessed on rational grounds, with attention to historical fact and the documentary record, not simply by adulation of our leaders and their “moral compass.” Z

Supression of Indigenous Sovereignty in the 20th Century

Suppression of Indigenous Sovereignty
in 20th Century United States
By Ward Churchill
As the 20th century prepares to take its rightful place in the dustbin of history, the last vestiges of sovereignty among the more than 300 indigenous nations trapped inside the claimed boundaries of the United States are rapidly sliding into a kind of final oblivion. In one of official Ameri...r to recoup what has been lost. We are nonetheless obliged to regain our stride, however painfully and belatedly. We are obliged because if our histories have taught us anything at all it is that, whatever the future may hold for our peoples, it must be something we collectively forge for ourselves or it will be truly too dreadful to contemplate. Our coming generations surely deserve far better.
