The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, National Urban League and National Fair Housing Alliance call President Trump's Sept. 22 executive order "chillingly punitive" censorship that violates guarantees of free speech, equal protection and due process. A few weeks ago, I BANNED efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies. Today, I've expanded that ban to people and companies that do business... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2020 Trump's executive order prohibits certain diversity training that the administration says amounts to "divisive, anti-American propaganda." In the five weeks since the order was signed, critics say it has had a widespread chilling effect as federal agencies, the military, government contractors and grant recipients scramble to figure out how to comply. The order targets diversity training grounded in what the administration terms a "malign ideology" that "threatens to infect core institutions of our country." Such an ideology, the order says, "is rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country." The order applies broadly to federal agencies and the military as well as government contractors and recipients of federal grants, including universities and nonprofits . All three of these trainings from @StateDept , @EPA , and @DeptVetAffairs have been cancelled. Thanks for the help. — Russ Vought (@RussVought45) September 22, 2020 The departments of State, Justice and Veterans Affairs are among those that have suspended all diversity and inclusion training programs while they review their content. Many companies and universities have more.. done the same . [Construction] [Finance]

30 at 8 p.m. LYNNFIELD — Superintendent John Scenna and the Lynnfield Center Water District (LWCD) Board of Commissioners would like to share information about proposed changes to the tax levy, which will be discussed at a virtual public hearing next week. The LCWD Board of Commissioners will be looking to cut the tax levy to $0.46 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, which is a 50% decrease from last year. The current tax levy is assessed at $0.93 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. The LCWD tax levy assessment is found within the Town’s quarterly real estate bills.  Customers saw a significant increase in the tax levy rate last year as a result of unanticipated budget increases, lack of reserve funds and prior 2018-19 volumetric rates which were reduced to levels where they no longer created enough revenue required to balance budgets passed and in place.  In February, the current Board of Commissioner with Superintendent Scenna and consultant David Fox from Raftellis, an industry leader in utility system financing, voted to install a new volumetric rate structure. Those rates have been since applied to consumption bills issued by LCWD in June and September of this year. LCWD is currently preparing Fall quarter consumption bills to be issued in December. Information on this process and on the rates can be found online here.   “Early indicators support that the new rate structure is performing and meeting financial goals,” Dave Fox from Raftellis said, at a recent meeting with the Board of Commissioners.
