Mortgage limits hurt Utah Valley

Utah’s representatives in Washington should push the Federal Housing Authority to make adjustments to loan limits that unfairly impact north Utah County and threaten the sputtering market in local real estate.

The FHA recently raised its limits on home loans in some areas — meaning a buyer can get a larger loan at a lower interest rate. The move is part of the economic stimulus package Congress passed earlier this year. But the agency has denied a request to raise such loan limits in Utah County.

Signed by the Governor: Michigan Bans “Material Support or Resources” for Warrantless Federal Surveillance

LANSING, Mich. (March 20, 2018) – On Monday, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill that bans “material support or resources” for warrantless federal surveillance programs. This is an essential step every state needs to take at a time when the federal government seems unlikely to ever end unconstitutional spying on its own.

Rep. Martin Howrylak (R-Troy) introduced House Bill 4430 (HB4430) last spring. The new law prohibits the state and its political subdivisions from assisting, participating with, or providing “material support or resources, to a federal agency to enable it to collect, or to facilitate in the collection or use of a person’s electronic data” unless one of five conditions apply:

(a) The person has given informed consent...

Utah Lawmakers Consider Cutting Off The Water Supply To NSA Data Center
Utah lawmakers are weighing the option of cutting of the water supply to the National Security Agency’s (NSA) data center in Bluffdale.

Legislation to cut off the water supply was debated in the state’s Public Utilities and Technology Interim Committee on November 19; it will go before the entire Utah House of Representatives in 2015.

According to Wired.com, NSA brought the massive data center “online about a year ago.” It is a 1-million-square-foot building housing servers that hold data for NSA. “Millions of gallons of local water” are required to keep the servers cool.

Utah state representative Marc Roberts (R-Dist. 67) introduced HB 161, the legislation fashioned to cut off the water supply...
