Judge rules HHS can't pay cost-sharing subsidies to QHPs, but allows funding to continue
In a May 12, 2016, decision, a US district court judge granted summary judgment to the US House of Representatives on the question of whether funds had been appropriated to pay qualified health plans (QHPs) for reduced cost-sharing subsidies under Section 1402 of the ACA. The court answered in the negative and enjoined "any further reimbursements under Section 1402 until a valid appropriation is in place." However, it stayed the injunction pending any appeal, which the Obama Administration has already indicated it intends to file.

The effect would be to treat mortgagees as a special category of applicant but not necessarily to their advantage.

Large energy, mining, forestry, pipeline, railroad and other infrastructure projects related to land and resources may involve Aboriginal and treaty rights and claims.

The Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (the Act) was proclaimed in force by the Government of Canada on June 1, 2015. As a result, Canada has joined the ranks of the EU, UK and US in promoting transparency and accountability in the extractive sector. The Act, a surprisingly swift response to promises made by Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the 2013 G8 Summit, establishes new mandatory reporting standards for exploration and commercial companies that develop oil, gas or minerals. The Act is intended to deter and detect corruption by implementing rigorous and transparent public reporting obligations. While the Act sets out the reporting framework, a reporting template and guidance documents will provide further compliance instructions once they are made available. Until these details are published, companies are left with an incomplete understanding of the full requirements of the Act. Read more
