County Council receives proposed budget for fiscal year 2023

Arlington County Council heard from County Executive Mark Schwartz at its regular meeting on Saturday, February 12, 2022, regarding its proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The entire proposed budget can be viewed on the county’s webpage.

The county manager proposed a balanced budget within existing tax rates; however, he pointed out that some incomes are still recovering and not returning to pre-pandemic levels. The manager’s proposed budget includes several fee adjustments, which he asks the board to consider at tax and fee hearings scheduled for the end of March. The taxes and fees advertised will be the highest that the Board can consider adopting.

The proposal highlighted four key elements:

  • Support our workforce: The proposed budget provides additional salaries and employee benefits to address the challenges of recruitment, retention, inflation and declining salary adjustments over the past two years during the pandemic.
  • Climate change and our environment: More than $4.4 million in funding in the fight against climate change. Operating and capital budgets include several investments in electric vehicles, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, solar power and energy efficiency, and $1.0 million in a new Arlington Equity Fund CEP to advance the community energy plan.
  • Lodging: Through a variety of housing programs, additional investments are being made in the proposed budget for fiscal year 2023. The proposed budget includes $16.9 million for the County Affordable Housing Investment Fund, 14, $3 million in housing subsidies in addition to nearly $23 million provided by the federal government in housing vouchers and increased support for permanent supportive housing and eviction prevention.
  • Schools: Arlington Public Schools will receive an additional $46 million in fiscal year 2023 for a total county revenue transfer of $576 million.

The proposed budget does not recommend any changes to the real estate, personal property, business, professional and professional licensing (BPOL), or business improvement district (BID) tax rates for the fiscal year.

The draft budget recommends a reduction in household solid waste charges and the elimination of in-transit transfer fees. There are recommendations for certain adjustments, including waste/sewer rates and user fees at the Lee Arts Center. A public hearing for the draft budget will take place on March 29, while the hearing for taxes and fees will take place on March 31.

County Council Meeting Recap

Several actions took place during the regular meeting of the Arlington County Council on Saturday, February 12, 2022, including:

  • Council approved the Pentagon City Sector Plan, a long-term vision document that balances investment certainty in livability and sustainability with flexibility for landowners in growing the neighborhood’s future. The sector plan aims to diversify housing options, prioritize multimodal transportation and embrace biophilic design. For more information, read the Council’s press release.
  • Funding has been approved for Neighborhood Conservation (NC) program projects. The program helps improve and enhance Arlington neighborhoods by enabling residents to identify and plan improvements in their own neighborhoods.

On Tuesday, February 15, 2022, the county council held its recess meeting. Several measures have been taken, including the authorization to announce public hearings that will allow the community to share their comments on the proposed adjustments to taxes and fees during the next fiscal year. Further information is available on the Council’s webpage.

Council meetings can be viewed in their entirety on the county’s website and on YouTube.

Welcome to Tuesday night health care, where we follow the latest developments in policies and news concerning your health. Subscribe here: thehill.com/newsletter-signup.

A candidate for the Senate in Louisiana posted an ad intended to go viral, showing him smoking marijuana in order to highlight the racial imbalance of marijuana laws and arrests.

The White House launched an unofficial website today to order free COVID-19 tests… and it generally went well, although some issues did arise with people living in apartments or duplexes.

For The Hill, we are Peter Sullivan (psullivan@thehill.com) and Nathaniel Weixel (nweixel@thehill.com). Write to us with tips and comments, and follow us on Twitter: @PeterSullivan4 and @NateWeixel

Let’s start.

You can now order free rapid tests online

After weeks of selling rapid tests at pharmacies, Americans now have an easier option than browsing local retailers: a new government website that sends tests to your home.

COVIDTests.gov went live on Tuesday in a “limited capacity” to resolve any issues before an official launch on Wednesday, the White House said.

Any American can order rapid tests for free through the website, and they will be delivered by the US Postal Service. All that is required is a name and mailing address; no credit card information is required.

But there are important limitations: Each residential address is limited to four tests. And tests will typically take seven to 12 days to ship, the White House said.

President BidenJoe BidenMadame Tussauds unveils new numbers on Biden and Harris US concerned about Russian troop movements to Belarus Putin tests model to invade Ukraine, foiling Biden diplomats MORE faced pressure to expand access to testing given shortages of rapid tests at retailers, as well as long queues at testing sites.

Many experts say that The White House should have acted months ago to set up the type of free rapid test program that is being launched.

With a limit of four tests per address, the website alone won’t provide the kind of frequent testing that many experts have called for.

Other option: As of Saturday, mutuals are equally now required cover up to eight rapid tests per month, although this process can be cumbersome as it often requires people to pay up front and then submit their receipts for reimbursement by their insurer.

Pfizer says antiviral is effective against omicron

LAB studies show that Paxlovid, Pfizer’s COVID-19 treatment pill, is effective against the omicron variant, the company announced Tuesday.

Pfizer said three separate lab studies have shown that nirmatrelvir, the drug’s primary protease inhibitor, maintains its effectiveness against omicron. A protease inhibitor is a class of drugs that prevent a virus from replicating.

Pfizer announced the results in a press release and said it was submitting them to preprint medical journals.

The emergence of the omicron variant has led to questions about the effectiveness of Paxlovid, as well as other COVID-19 treatments, as the variant has many more mutations than previous strains.

Paxlovid is seen as a major step forward in the fight against the virus, with trials showing it reduces the risk of hospitalization or death by 89% in high-risk patients. Some experts have suggested that because the drug is a protease inhibitor, it won’t be as mutation-limited as other types of treatments.

Last month, the Food and Drug Administration cleared Paxlovid for use in high-risk patients. The fact that Paxlovid is a pill rather than an injection, as in previous treatments, should make it more accessible and easier to take.

AT LEAST 20 PERCENT OF AMERICANS HAVE BEEN INFECTED WITH CORONAVIRUS

At least 20% of Americans have now been infected with COVID-19, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Data shows more than 66,400,000 Americans have been infected with the coronavirus since the pandemic began in early 2020. The country has recorded more than 850,000 deaths.

The total number of Americans with COVID-19 could be much higher due to asymptomatic cases.

About 63% of the population is now fully immunized, though that number varies widely by locality — from around 48% in Alabama and Wyoming to nearly 87% in Washington, DC.

The omicron variant now spreading across the country has been shown to be much more transmissible than previous strains, even among vaccinated populations. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the variant accounts for 98% of all new infections.

WHO OFFICIAL: THE WORLD HAS ‘A CHANCE TO END’ THE WORST OF COVID-19 THIS YEAR

If inequities in medicines and vaccines are quickly addressed, the world has a “chance to end” the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic this year, a senior World Health Organization official said on Tuesday. (WHO).

Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies programme, told a panel hosted by the World Economic Forum that the brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic, including lockdown measures and deaths caused by COVID-19, would continue if resources like the vaccine were not evenly distributed between corporations and governments, The Associated Press reported.

However, he noted that “we have a chance of ending the public health emergency this year if we do the things we’ve been talking about.”

Ryan blamed “disruption to our social, economic and political systems” for causing the pandemic hardship facing many citizens around the world, “not the virus”, according to the outlet.

“What we need to do is achieve low levels of disease incidence with maximum vaccination of our populations, so that no one has to die,” the WHO official said.

WHO officials have criticized wealthier countries for not doing a better job of prioritizing getting initial doses of vaccines to poorer countries over distributing boosters to their own citizens .

Supreme Court rejects bid to block mask mandate on planes

The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a request to block a federal mask mandate for air travel.

The emergency request was filed by a father on behalf of himself and his 4-year-old autistic son, who both claim to be medically unable to wear masks for long periods of time.

Their request was filed in court. Neil GorsuchNeil GorsuchSupreme Court rejects bid to block mask mandate on planesSupreme Court agrees to hear case on suspension of HS coach for on-field prayers Supreme Court, Immunization and Government By Fox News MORE, which handles emergency claims arising in several western states, and referred the case to the full court. The judges dismissed the request with no comment or dissent noted.

Another man, Lucas Wall, joined the father-son challengers, who sought to raise funds and publicity through his legal efforts targeting the federal mandate for transport masks. Last month, Chief Justice John Roberts unilaterally dismissed a separate challenge filed by the group.

The court’s decision comes less than a week after judges voted 6-3 to block a vaccine or testing mandate for most employers.

A strong transport sector can also indicate a strong economy, and this should help boost the Direxion Daily Transportation Bull 3X Actions (TPOR) Even further.

The fund is already up more than 80% over the year, thanks to its triple leverage effect. If there is still room to run in 2022 with an even stronger workforce, TPOR could give traders even more reason to rejoice.

“Despite headwinds such as inflation issues and supply chain delays, the sector covering trade, logistics / transport and utilities is expected to recover in 2022 all jobs lost due to the pandemic , driven by hiring growth in sub-sectors like durable goods, couriers and warehousing, a labor market analysis, ”says a DC Velocity article.

“One of the reasons for this increase in employment is that consumers are taking advantage of historically low interest rates and using their accumulated savings to make purchases ranging from online purchases to cars, appliances and furniture, according to the” 2022 US Job Market Outlook “report from ThinkWhy, a provider of cloud-based HR and talent acquisition solutions,” the article adds.

As mentioned, TPOR seeks daily investment results equal to 300% of the daily performance of the Dow Jones Transportation Index. The index measures the performance of large companies well known in the transportation industry.

A retail trader to consider

Additionally, the DC Velocity article mentions how consumers are making a comeback with retail spending. This should also open up opportunities in another fund: the Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X ETF (RETL), which seeks daily investment results equal to 300% of the daily performance of the S&P Retail Select Industry Index.

The fund had grown by over 200% by mid-November before the Omicron variant ended the party. Still, RETL is up over 80% year-on-year, and there is still some December holiday shopping to be completed.

“Despite headwinds in the economy, November retail sales data confirms consumers continue to spend, as evidenced by a 14% year-over-year increase in sales,” said Matthew Shay , Chairman and CEO of NRF, in a press release. “We expect demand to remain strong through December, even as consumers started shopping for the holiday season earlier than ever this year. Despite the rise of the omicron variant, rising vaccination rates combined with ongoing retail safety protocols and procedures have given consumers the feeling that they can continue to shop safely and conveniently. We believe holiday sales this year could increase by up to 11.5% from 2020. ”

Trusted Solar Dealer in Arizona Passionate About Electric Vehicles

We’re excited to help Arizona households and businesses switch to solar power and take an even bigger step towards the adoption of electric vehicles powered by clean, renewable energy.

– James Meringer, director of EVX Solar

SURPRISE, ARIZONA, USA, December 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Arizona-based solar company EVX Solar recently launched a new website that provides information on their ability to deliver the best solar solutions to customers residential and commercial.
