    (September 25, 2019) - - Today (September 25, 2019), the U.S. Department of the Interior published the following account of U.S. Interior Secretary David L. Bernhardt's statements which were published in a September 23, 2019 guest commentary to The Denver Post: Last year’s wildfire season was one of the worst on record as more than 58,000 wildfires burned more than 8.8 million acres across the United States. Nearly 26,000 structures were destroyed — more than double the previous annual record — and 19 valiant members of America’s firefighting community lost their lives. Across the country, more than 98 million people live within or adjacent to lands susceptible to wildfires. As more and more people move into or near wildfire-prone areas, it’s paramount...

    U.S. Department of Agriculture Prepared to Respond to Hurricane Florence

    U.S. Department of Agriculture Prepared to Respond to Hurricane Florence



    Washington, DC - - (September 12, 2018) - - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reminds rural communities, farmers and ranchers, families and small businesses potentially impacted by Hurricane Florence of programs to provide assistance in the wake of disasters. USDA staff in the regional, State and county offices stand ready and eager to help. Additionally, USDA’s Operations Center will function around the clock. “Our farmers and ranchers take financial risks every year to help feed and clothe the U.S. and the world, and a hurricane makes their situations even more perilous,” U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said. “At USDA, it’s our job to be there for them when they need help. All of our relevant agencies are ready to assist when natural disasters strike.” USDA has important roles in both...

    Washington, DC - - (February 27, 2017) - -


    Thank you Steven, for the wonderful introduction. It is great to be part of today’s conversation on net neutrality, or as I prefer to call it, the “open internet.”

    So what do Title II reclassification, broad forbearance authority, and interconnection have in common? Before you start to doze, let me quickly say, that while these are all concepts contained in the FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order, this is not how people outside the halls of the FCC and Communications Bar, generally talk about their experiences online, or with their broadband service providers. Yet this regulatory minutia is exactly what consumes those of us in D.C. and in academia when it comes

    U.S. Internal Revenue Service says Avoid the Rush when Calling the IRS - - Be Prepared to Validate Identity






    February 16, 2017


    Washington, DC - - (February 14, 2017) - - The Internal Revenue Service said mid-February marks the agency’s busiest time of the year for telephone calls. The IRS is reminding taxpayers who have questions about their tax accounts to be prepared to validate their identity when speaking with an IRS assistor. This will help avoid the need for a repeat call.

    The IRS recognizes the importance of protecting taxpayers’ identities. That’s why IRS call center assistors take great care to make certain that they only discuss personal information with the taxpayer or someone authorized to speak on the taxpayer’s behalf.

    Customer service representatives can answer refund questions only after 21 days after the return was filed. Taxpayers should use “Where’s My Refund?” to track the
