California Bans Its Employees From Traveling To States With Anti-LGBTQ Laws

The Golden State is once again making a bold show of support and solidarity with queer people across the country.  California has banned state-funded travel for employees to four states that have enshrined anti-LGBTQ legislation in their law books since June 29, 2015.  The ban stems from Assembly Bill 1887 and affects state-sanctioned travel to North Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kansas.  “California must take action to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people,” the bill reads. Assembly Bill 1887 was signed into law in Sept. 2016 and went into effect with the turn of the new year on Jan. 1, 2017. It serves as a response to bills like North Carolina’s anti-LGBTQ HB2, which bans many trans people from using the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity. “California has said clearly, our taxpayer dollars will not help fund bigotry and hatred,” Assemblyman Evan Low, who co-authored the bill, stated in a press release, according to The Advocate. “If other states try and pass similar laws, we will work to stop them. Our zero-tolerance policy says there is no room for discrimination of any kind in California, and AB 1887 ensures that discrimination will not be tolerated beyond our borders.” Other states have taken similar action in the past in response to anti-LGBTQ legislation. In March 2016, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo banned all non-essential state-sanctioned travel to North Carolina, and took the same action the following month for Mississippi.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Trump’s Hill play includes May meeting, new congressional liaison

Donald Trump’s campaign to improve relations on Capitol Hill includes hiring a liaison to work directly with Congress and another personal meeting with lawmakers that’s in the works for next month as the billionaire looks to officially wrap up the Republican presidential nomination. The billionaire’s latest play for some very inside-the-Beltway backing was on display Thursday during an hourlong closed door meeting at the Capitol Hill Club, just steps from the Capitol Building. There, Trump adviser Paul Manafort and the campaign’s new congressional middleman, Scott Mason, laid out the roadmap as Trump tries to avoid a floor fight at this summer’s Republican National Convention. No firm date was set for Trump's visit with lawmakers, but his aides assured the group of about 17 House Republicans at the meeting that Trump wanted to connect with them as he closes out the primary and caucus season. “I think a lot of people would like to meet him,” Rep. Scott DesJarlais, one of Trump’s earliest House endorsers, told POLITICO. The Tennessee Republican added that he expects about a half-dozen new Trump endorsements from his House colleagues “by Monday.” The meeting with lawmakers included Mason, a former vice president of government affairs for Lowe’s Cos., who has no experience working in Congress, and Rick Dearborn, the chief of staff for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), the lone sitting senator to publicly endorse Trump.Trump’s declaration that he’s the presumptive GOP nominee hasn’t been embraced by Republicans in Congress, especially senators who fret that he could harm their chances of maintaining their majority in the fall. But the real estate mogul has had success in the House. Earlier today, he netted endorsements from Pennsylvania Rep. Bill Shuster and retiring Florida Rep. Jeff Miller, the chairmen of the transportation and veterans affairs committees, respectively.

NYC Homeless Call For Better, Permanent Low-Income Housing

A group of homeless individuals and activists gathered on the steps of New York City Hall on Wednesday morning to roll out a new proposal for low-income housing. The proposal, called the Gaining Ground Pilot Project, calls for permanent housing instead of homeless shelters. It was drafted by Picture the Homeless, an East Harlem-based organization that fights for homeless rights. The crowd of over 50 people issued a rallying cry: "Shelter money’s poorly spent, give us money to pay our rent."  There are about 60,000 homeless people in New York, according to The Coalition for the Homeless, which is the highest number since the Great Depression. Several homeless individuals came forward to speak about their experience living in the streets, overcrowded shelters or run-down affordable housing. Part of the Picture the Homeless mission is to empower homeless people as leaders and policy advocates, so all of its members are homeless, in addition to its staff of organizers. Gaining Ground says it wants to work with the de Blasio administration. One point they agree on is the need to phase out "cluster sites," or apartments within a residential building that the city converted into "shelter apartments," which homeless people can rent with housing vouchers. There are currently 3,000 cluster sites in New York City. Mayor de Blasio committed to ending this type of setup earlier this month because the housing ends up being too expensive, and serves too few people. Gaining Ground is aiming for the same goal, but suggests three concrete ways to achieve that.  The group suggests turning temporary "cluster sites" back into permanent rent-stabilized housing, rehabilitating the city's vacant property into new housing for homeless people and adding more units in partially vacant low-income co-ops.  Lisa Millhouse, who lives with her 4-year-old daughter in a cluster site in the Bronx, said her apartment is in very poor condition, even though it costs the city $2,700 a month. "But I can't leave my place either, because no other landlord will accept my housing vouchers," she said.  Gaining Ground suggests allocating money from the Department of Homeless Services budget to fund its plan. Ryan Hickey, PTH's housing organizer, said the group worked closely with the previous deputy mayor for health and human services, Lilliam Barrios-Paoli, to develop their recommendations.  "The new deputy mayor, Herminia Palacio, also seems open to working with us, and we look forward to building relationships to take our proposal forward," he said.  Donna Morgan, a PTH member who has been living in the Auburn Family Shelter for 18 months, said the city must listen to the experiences of actual homeless individuals if it wants to fix housing policy.  "They need people like me at the round table. Otherwise, it's just people on the outside looking in." Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Idea Of The Week: Which Retailers Are Really Enjoying ‘Happy Holidays’?

Last week we looked at struggling retailers who really need a boost from December shoppers. This week, we check out three that are happily ringing seasonal bells. Unsurprisingly, as consumers start to flex their muscles, we’re spoiled for choice – or to use a more appropriate metaphor, there’s no shortage of presents under the tree. Lowe’s Cos. Inc. (LOW.N) How about a new stove for Christmas? This home improvement and appliance retailer is certainly enjoying the current environment. The Thomson Reuters Same Store Sales (SSS) for 2014 is estimated at 5.1% growth. That’s an impressive pace; you can almost hear the drills and hammers across the U.S.! These numbers are reflected across the board – with the Analyst Revisions Model scoring in the top 2%. That score looks at recent changes in estimates across the income statement, StarMine’s proprietary “predicted surprise” and also upgrades/downgrades in broker recommendations. Despite recent oil-induced market wobbles, it’s pretty easy to see the surge in performance this year relative to the broader market.  Source: Thomson Reuters Eikon Banging out results Obviously price momentum (the model is in the top 9%) remains robust, as does the broader business with an earnings quality score in the top 11%. The only note of caution is the valuation, with the forward 12-month P/E at the highest level in 10 years at 20.5 (the 10 year median is 15.7). If the U.S. consumer continues to power the domestic economy,y then perhaps that type of number isn’t too excessive – though EPS is also at a 10-year high. Those cash registers need to keep on ringing! Foot Locker Inc. (FL.N) Surely everyone wants basketball shoes for Hanukkah. This clothing and footwear retailer is another robust contender in 2014, with a strong stock price performance again emulating conditions in its stores. This year’s estimated 5.6% growth in SSS comes on the back of 5.3% in 2013, so the company continues to bring its “A game” Source: Thomson Reuters Eikon Hitting goals  The Smart Holdings model is another source of strength, with many of the company’s metrics being just the thing for last minute shopping by portfolio managers. Tick off the boxes: trailing five-year EPS growth of 75.5%, trailing 12 month ROA of 13.5%, great revisions and price momentum. For those staring at the blinking lights wondering how to pull ahead of that pesky, remorseless benchmark just up ahead – maybe placing their fate in the hands of the U.S. shopper is the right play. Inchcape plc (INCH.L) Perhaps the Jaguar needs a new carburetor. Over on the other side of the pond, we look at this British distributor of premium automobiles and parts, with sales in 22 countries. It’s a little unfair to compare the company against the energy-exposed FTSE 100 – but the self-proclaimed “strategic partner to the world’s leading luxury and premium car brands” has had a good year, up 23.4% vs the FTSE, which is now down 2.24%. And, in case you didn’t make the connection the website helpfully adds that Inchcape’s “strategic focus on premium growth is driving premium returns.” Source: Thomson Reuters Eikon High speeds ahead The company has surfed the wave of consumer spending over the last few years and 2014 looks like another strong performance. The only dark clouds on the horizon are far beyond the company’s control, and are the typical macroeconomic ones. What happens when the U.K. raises interest rates from 400-year lows? Certainly it’s interesting to view consumer behaviour in an interest rate environment last seen by William of Orange (William III). Equally, their Asian revenue looks exposed as well – with little to cheer about in China at the moment. Toss in a few more factors – falling commodity prices in Australia and New Zealand and Russia’s currency imploding. Of course, maybe that’s reflected in a P/E of only 13.8. With a strong customer service model, no doubt of their service quality or the underlying vehicles – this is a macro play. If you’re happy to make hay while the sun shines, this is exposure to the high end consumer in quite a pure form, but with interest rate rises looming in much of the world (of course not in developed Europe), rough roads may lie ahead.  Receive stories like this to your inbox as they are published.
