Georgia sees huge drop in people on food stamps

AJC reports:
Georgia is seeing a significant decrease in the number of people receiving food stamps as the improving economy lifts many recipients into new jobs and frees them from the fear of going hungry.

The number of Georgians getting food stamps has dropped by 300,000 from 1.9 million in April 2013 to 1.6 million. That decrease of 16 percent in the federally funded program saves taxpayers tens of millions of dollars monthly.

That may sound great, but it’s also fueling a passionate debate about which people should get food stamps and for how long. Here in Georgia, unemployment has dropped to pre-recession levels. But Georgia’s food stamp program, despite the decrease, would have to lose another 692,115 people to reach its 2007 level of participation.

The fact that food stamp use has remained relatively high, while the economy has largely rebounded from the recession, makes some believe that many food stamp recipients are taking advantage of the system.

California attorney general adds 4 states to state travel ban

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Decrying a “scourge of discrimination” against LGBT individuals in four states, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Thursday doubled the number of states subject to California’s state-sponsored travel ban.

Speaking in San Francisco, Becerra increased the number of states that California state employees cannot travel to on official government business from four to eight.

The four additions — Alabama, Kentucky, South Dakota and Texas — each passed state legislation that took effect starting in March that Becerra alleged discriminates against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families.

“The state of California is not going to participate in discriminatory conduct by other states,” Becerra said.

The states join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee on California’s list of banned states. The first four were put in place by then-Attorney General Kamala Harris.

Thursday marked Becerra’s first action on the matter since he took office, and he blamed the delayed rollout on the complications of analyzing four separate pieces of state legislation.

Under a California law that took effect in January, there are a number of exemptions to the ban on travel. The restrictions do apply to the University of California and other state schools.
It would be too bad if these "banned" states started banning California. You can't say Becerra isn't an expert on the subject of illegals..

Latest Chicago cab medallion sale shows need for relief, cabbies’ union says

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
A union representing struggling Chicago cab drivers pointed to results of this week’s auction of taxicab medallions as proof that cabbies need relief.

Thirty-two medallions — once valued at $360,000 before the city’s two-tiered regulatory process ushered in the ride-hailing era — were auctioned Wednesday for far less, with prices ranging from $44,000 to $45,000 apiece, officials said.

The remaining 28 medallions were acquired by Capital One, the original lender on loans that had been used to purchase the medallions.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 2500 — representing hundreds of cabdrivers — called the auction results a “prime example” of how city regulations governing medallions “strip drivers of due process rights” that cover “other types of foreclosure proceedings.”

“Instead of going through the regular foreclosure process which provides both parties due process, the city has set up a system where a lender can auction off one’s property out from under them,” said the union’s spokesman, David Kreisman.

“The city should fix these rules so drivers have justice and their property isn’t taken away from them until their day in court. The city needs to help protect their investment in these medallions. We enjoy due process in this country. These regulations strip people of their due process. We’re looking at this medallion crisis and they are not doing anything to provide drivers any sort of assistance.”

Rape Culture Cover-Up In England

Some theaters say they will no longer invite Sun-Times critic Hedy Weiss to openings

The Chicago Tribune reports:
Being a critic can be a difficult business, not to mention being the one critic that some Chicago theaters say they will no longer invite to review their shows.

Hedy Weiss is the longtime theater and dance critic for the Chicago Sun-Times and a regular on-air contributor to WTTW-Ch. 11's "Chicago Tonight." In the last week, a petition calling on theaters to stop inviting Weiss to productions in the wake of her June 13 review of "Pass Over" at Steppenwolf Theatre has garnered more than 3,500 signatures.

The petition at Change.org was created by a group of local artists calling itself the Chicago Theater Accountability Coalition, which claims 70 of the city's 200-some theaters have agreed not to offer Weiss complimentary tickets to review a show (part of a longstanding and common arrangement between theaters and arts presenters and members of the media covering their work, including the Tribune). After suggesting the names of those theaters would be released this week, co-founder Sasha Smith said Thursday her group is not planning to release the list because "at this point it is just already public knowledge (which theaters stand with the coalition), and the list keeps growing and expanding day by day, so at this point it's sort of a moot point to release one specific list."

Some theaters have posted public statements about their positions on the controversy. Steep Theatre representatives announced on Facebook they will suspend offering complimentary tickets to Weiss, reversing a decision theater leadership made more than a month ago when they were asked by members of the arts community to stop inviting her to their productions. Artistic Director Peter Moore said the company revisited the issue after the "Pass Over" review and determined "it's a stance that we felt we needed to take." He added that the theater may reconsider its position if Weiss responds to the criticism.
