A LAW to help parents protect against sex offenders helped unmask around 350 predators last year.

Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 is one of six Colorado school districts and two industry associations fighting to stop a new law addressing educational obstacles for foster care youth.In a lawsuit filed this week in Denver District Court, the plaintiffs cited a transportation caveat added to the bill in the final days of the spring legislative session.“It’s not about the policy,” Cheyenne Mountain D-12 Superintendent Walt Cooper said Friday. “It’s about the manner in which this happened.”The plaintiffs are seeking an injunction to prevent the law from being enacted while the case is litigated.“The danger, if the state prevails and we lose, is it demonstrates the ways in which the legislative process can be manipulated,” Cooper said.In passing the “Improving Education Stability for Foster Youth” bill, lawmakers made it easier for about 6,000 students in foster care statewide to attend their school of origin, regardless of … [Read more...] about Colorado Springs school district among those fighting new transportation law with a lawsuit
You might say the father of our country fathered campaign finance reform — although it was sort of an unplanned offspring. In 1755, George Washington ran for the Virginia House and lost. Two years later, he spent about $195 on punch and hard cider for potential voters, and he won. It apparently didn't go unnoticed, and the newly elected state legislature soon passed a law prohibiting candidates "or any persons on their behalf" from giving voters "money, meat, drink, entertainment or provision or any present, gift, reward or entertainment etc. in order to be elected." More campaign finance regulations followed. The 1883 Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act banned government officials from soliciting contributions from civil service workers. Before that, some were expected to pitch in, if they wanted to keep their jobs.A century later, Teddy Roosevelt raised more than $2 million from corporations during the 1904 presidential campaign. … [Read more...] about The $195 Order Of Cider And Punch That Launched Campaign Finance Law
By Gavin Jones ROME (Reuters) - Italy's right-wing Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has ordered the wording on some official forms changed so that same-sex couples cannot both declare themselves as a child's parents. Salvini, interior minister and leader of the anti-immigrant League party, is now the Italy's most favoured politician, according to some surveys, and his socially conservative policies have proven popular among voters so far. In an interview with a Catholic online newspaper Salvini said he had ordered the identity card application forms for children to be changed to refer to the "mother and father" instead of "parent 1" and "parent 2". "We will defend the natural family founded on the union between a man and a woman. I will exert all the power possible," Salvini told La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana. In Italy surrogate pregnancies are illegal and same-sex couples cannot adopt children. However, some courts and city halls have granted parental status to the partner of a … [Read more...] about Italy’s Salvini asserts ‘natural family’ in move against same-sex parents
