Judge says no to Biden administration challenge

President Joe Biden’s coronavirus relief law was almost blocked by a federal judge on Wednesday following an effort by Ohio’s Republican attorney general, according to The Hill.

The measure, which would have been temporarily halted, stands in the way of states using federal coronavirus aid to offset future state tax cuts, something states consider to be outside of the federal purview.

According to The Hill, District Court Judge Douglas Cole’s ruling was a narrow victory for the Biden administration. The judge said that while Ohio’s claim had merit, the requested halt would be inappropriate since it’s considered unlikely that the Treasury Department would take action against the state.

“The bottom line is this — a preliminary injunction that stands no meaningful prospect of ever being enforced, as the Secretary is unlikely to be in a position to recoup funds while this suit is pending, adds nothing by way of clarity,” wrote Cole, a Trump appointee on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.

“Thus, while the Court finds that irreparable harm likely exists, the requested preliminary injunction does not avoid that harm,” he added.

The suit was filed in March against Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen by Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost (R) who stated that it was unconstitutional for the federal government to put the conditions on the coronavirus relief.

That wasn’t Yellen’s only interaction with State AG’s on the issue, however. March also saw a group of 21 Republican state attorney generals who challenging the provision, according to The Hill, citing the potential for violation of states’ rights.

“Absent a more sensible interpretation from your department, this provision would amount to an unprecedented and unconstitutional intrusion on the separate sovereignty of the State through federal usurpation of essentially one half of the State’s fiscal ledgers,” they wrote in the letter.

“Indeed, such federal usurpation of state tax policy would represent the greatest attempted invasion of state sovereignty by Congress in the history of our Republic.”

Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Marissa Meyer – CEO of Yahoo! , is advising people to start “Work at home” practice, that I have been doing for over a year now. This year alone, I made about $36k so far with nothing but my computer and some free time, despite that i have a full-time 9 to 5 job. Even people new to this, can make $50/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started…>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 𝐰­𝐰­𝐰­.­𝐒­𝐧­𝐚­𝐠­𝟒­.­𝐜­𝐨­𝐦

The BIDEN administration want to remove the rights of the states making DC the ruling entity. This is EQUIVALENT TO CHANGING OUR TYPE OF GOVERNMENT, and GREATLY EXCEEDS THE POWER OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT! CONTACT YOU STATE LEGISLATURE WITH THIS CONCERN! The power of the presidency does not include the ability TO CHANGE OUR FORM OF GOVERNMENT!

After leaving my previous job 12 months ago, i’ve had some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $4500… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet…Read all about it here…>>>>>>>>>>> 𝐰­𝐰­𝐰­.­𝐒­𝐧­𝐚­𝐠­𝟒­.­𝐜­𝐨­𝐦
