according to authorities would continue to hover over the city for the next three days The three workers union in the Enugu State Broadcasting Service (ESBS) has called on the State Governor Mr Sullivan Chime to dissolve the Board of Directors of the establishment over what they described as “gross mismanagement of the stations resources” Members of the three unions which included NUJ and RATTAWU also accused the Board of Directors of insensitivity to the plight of workers and arrogating to themselves powers that do not belong to them in the establishment The grievances of the workers were contained in an address signed by the leadership of the three unions and presented when they made a peaceful visit to the Government House Enugu In the address read by the spokesman of the unions and chairman of RATTAWU in the establishment Mr Ifeanyi Udeh they expressed gratitude to the Governor Mr Sullivan I Chime for his special interest in the affairs of the broadcasting house since he assumed office They specifically thanked the governor for total refurbishment and digitization of the establishment with state of the Art Broadcasting equipment and procurement of Outside Broadcasting Road and TV Vans among others The unions noted with satisfaction the prompt action taken by the governor to stop the on-going refurbishing work at the establishment’s property at Number Two Forest Close GRA Enugu in accordance with the unions’ earlier request They stated that if the renovation work was not put on hold it would have gulped over ten million naira that would have been used to pay workers salary arrears offset pension arrears and take care of other operation running costs The labour unions then appealed to the Governor to inherit ESBS into his office as was the case at the inception of the Broadcasting Station with the name ATV in 1981 They also added that inheritance of the establishment by the office of the Governor would bring the station in the same condition with their Sister Stations like Ebonyi and Anambra Broadcasting Services that are directly under their Government House Addressing the workers unions at the Government House the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Governor on Media Matters Mr Afam Okereke commended the workers of the ESBS for adopting mature and peaceful method to express their grievances against the establishment’s board of directors Mr Okereke assured the workers that their grievances would be made known to the governor whom he said would not hesitate to take necessary action to address them The SSA noted that government had invested much in the station and would ensure that her drive to resuscitate the establishment for effective service delivery would not go in vain But legislative leaders agree that funding for oil country is the biggest issue heading into the sessionIt’s a debate that will play out as crude oil prices sag at their lowest point in five years just above a threshold that if broken for five straight months would trigger an oil tax exemption that could cost the state a projected $54 billion in lost revenue in 2015-17Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner R-Dickinson said lawmakers will need to scrutinize spending more closely and make adjustments to Gov Jack Dalrymple’s executive budget proposal which calls for a 54 percent increase in general fund spendingBut he also noted that the revenue the state continues to reap from oil would have had lawmakers “dancing in the streets” in yesteryears“Yes the price of oil has gone down but the sky is not falling” he saidHouse Majority Leader Al Carlson said he expects the most discussion over proposals by western GOP lawmakers and Gov Jack Dalrymple to change the state’s oil production tax distribution formula and fast-track at least $800 million to give the oil and gas region – and to a lesser extent non-oil-producing counties – a jump on the 2015 construction seasonThe formula proposals call for changing the revenue split from 75 percent state 25 local to 60 percent local 40 percent state in order to send a larger share back to oil counties and their political subdivisions so they can address roads and other infrastructure needs Dalrymple has said it would mean $17 billion for oil counties or $1 billion more than what they’re expected to receive this biennium“Those will be obviously two big things because that is where the money lies” Carlson saidLawmakers say their job won’t be any easier with state coffers overflowing to the tune of a general fund surplus of $577 million and about $24 billion in reserves projected by the end of the biennium“It’s easier to say no and it’s real hard when you’ve got $3 billion in the bank to say ‘We can’t do this’ ” said House Minority Leader Kenton Onstad D-ParshallEye on oil taxes Senate Minority Leader Mac Schneider D-Grand Forks said addressing oil impacts with so-called “surge” funding will be the Legislature’s first order of business“I think it’s actually critical to get that catch-up funding out” he said adding Democrats felt strongly that it should have been done during the 2013 session or during a special session which Dalrymple refused to callBut Wardner said getting the funding approved is “not going to be as fast as we probably would like it” given the uncertainty over oil pricesLawmakers are closely monitoring crude prices to see if oil dips below the “trigger price” that would exempt oil wells from the state’s 65 percent extraction tax for the first 24 months of productionThe trigger price for 2014 is $5206 and it increases to $5259 in 2015 For the exemption to take effect the posted price for West Texas Intermediate crude oil would have to average below the trigger price for five consecutive months As of Tuesday the WTI price was around $5340 a barrel“That five-month threshold is a high standard It’s a high hurdle to meet” Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger saidIf the trigger were hit before July 1 North Dakota would collect a projected $29 billion in oil taxes in the next biennium – $54 billion less than the latest forecast of $83 billion Rauschenberger saidA smaller exemption will cut the extraction tax from 65 percent to 2 percent on new wells drilled if the WTI price averages less than $55 a barrel for a month Rauschenberger said the net effect in lost revenue would be a maximum of $160000 per well but he noted the incentive will expire June 30 unless lawmakers extend itDalrymple’s budget proposal is based on an oil price forecast of $74 per barrel at the start of the biennium and $82 by the end considerably higher than current prices But he pointed out that the general fund is limited to $300 million in oil tax revenues every two years or about 36 percent of the budget“In terms of what adjustments might need to be made I don’t really see that impacting on our general fund operating budget at all because we’re really not relying much on oil tax revenue” he said adding lower oil revenues are more likely to postpone projects that are funded with reservesHowever House Majority Leader Kenton Onstad D-Parshall noted that the general fund also is fed by sales and income taxes which have grown substantially as a result of oil development and stand to take a hit as lower prices prompt operators to idle drilling rigsThe state’s next revenue forecast will be released on a date yet to be determined by lawmakers but it’s expected to be around early to mid-March shortly after the crossover date for bills which is Feb 27Onstad and the other legislative leaders said lawmakers won’t necessarily have to wait until then to approve the surge funding because the money would come from existing reserves namely the Strategic Investment and Improvements Fund“We’ve got money in the bank to handle it so we should do it” Onstad saidLeaders said they expect a healthy debate over the 60-40 oil revenue split and how many years it should be in effect if approved Dalrymple said the revised formula “is certainly warranted” and “probably should continue until we feel that we are in a sense over the hump”Other issuesAmong the other anticipated hot-button issues:A bill drafted at the request of Rep Jim Kasper R-Fargo would require the state to dump the standards and craft its own standards for K-12 students It’s already drawn strong opposition from the Greater North Dakota Chamber and the North Dakota Council of Educational LeadersCarlson said he believes it’ll be the “sleeper bill” of the session“The Common Core issue might be a little more contentious than people thought” he saidThe bills are expected to face resistance from members of both parties with Democrats arguing the focus should instead be on property taxesThe system requested a $177 million increase in its general fund appropriation for 2015-17 Dalrymple is recommending a $159 million increase“The higher ed budget will be analyzed very closely” Wardner saidRepublican leaders said they haven’t heard of any abortion bills coming forward with Carlson adding “We’ve got a lot of good stuff on the books” Schneider said he hopes lawmakers who thrust the state into the middle of the controversial issue “learned their lesson” from November’s election when North Dakota voters soundly defeated a “right to life” amendment and voted out two of the Legislature’s strongest anti-abortion advocatesScience’s Sarah Crespi. a cumbersome legal phrase that basically refers to the way people are treated in the public square.C. relative to this issue and the promotion thereof” Until “extraordinarily recently” he said “this issue was not an issue” In North Carolina LGBT rights activists are asking not only that the law be repealed but that the state go further in the other direction adding explicit protections covering sexual orientation and gender identity in non-discrimination laws What happens in that state will flesh out this story further: just days after Gov Pat McCrory signed the bill the ACLU filed a lawsuit on behalf of transgender and lesbian residents alleging that the new law is a form of sex discrimination as well a a violation of constitutional protections like the Fourteenth Amendment’s due process clause The state attorney generala Democrat who is running against McCrory for governorcalled the law “a national embarrassment” and refused to defend any named parties challenged in the lawsuit McCrory meanwhile has since said he’s “open to new ideas and solutions” But don’t expect that to bring an end to these fights On March 30 the Mississippi senate passed the "Protecting Freedom of Conscience From Government Discrimination Act" Among its stipulations: gender is determined at birth and the belief that reserving “sexual

their land crossings with Gaza which have reduced its economy to a state of collapse UN and Egyptian-led efforts are under way to mediate a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas who have fought three wars since 2008 The bid is also meant to tackle humanitarian issues in Gaza and improve its economy Adham Abu Selmeya one of the flotilla organizers said the event was meant to send a message to all parties involved in the ceasefire efforts "We want the world to see the reality of the blockade and the suffering of the people of Gaza and we will not accept anything less than lifting the

from the 2019 election We must be ready to protect the essence and idea of India which this government is seeking to extinguish" She said the recently held Assembly elections hold vital lessons for the party both in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand "With an energised cadre and effective leadership we were able to defeat a sitting NDA government in Punjab but in Manipur and Goa we failed to convert our winning numbers into forming a government This outcome reminds us that the BJP will use their enormous resources and muscle power to steal mandates from us just as they did in Arunachal Pradesh and earlier in Uttarakhand We cannot let this happen again" she said Towards this end Gandhi said the party organisation must be strengthened "The ongoing organisational elections must be completed
