Obama administration delays action on Keystone XL
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Friday confirmed it was giving eight federal agencies more time to weigh in on the Keystone XL pipeline, likely delaying a final decision on the controversial project until after the Nov. 4 midterm elections. The State Department said the agencies needed more time to respond in light of a Nebraska court ruling that struck down legislation authorizing Gov. Dave Heineman’s approval of the pipeline’s route through the state. FuelFix.com

Alabama Attorney General foresees lawsuit against BP for state’s economic losses
MOBILE, Alabama -- As the oil spill's effects linger, there is one place where BP and other companies have continued to feel grief: the courtroom. Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange said Friday, two days before the four-year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, that he had no intention to make it stop. “The next trial, set for January 2015, will determine how much money BP owes the federal government in civil penalties, a portion of which Alabama will receive through the RESTORE Act,” Strange said in a statement.

Sen. Joe Manchin Is 'Leaving All His Options Open for 2016'
Sen. Joe Manchin is the most conservative Democrat in the Senate. But he may not be planning on staying there too long. Manchin, who served one full term as West Virginia's governor before leaving for the Senate in 2010, appears to be eyeing his former office or another office for 2016—two years before his term as senator is up.

Obamacare: Kill or Cure for Health Care Job Market?
During the Great Recession and in the years that followed, the job market in the U.S. had its legs taken out from under it. Millions of jobs disappeared, across virtually every sector of the economy but one. Throughout even the worst months of the crisis, the health care sector added jobs as reliably as sunrise and sunset. Thefiscaltimes.com

Oklahoma Will Charge Customers Who Install Their Own Solar Panels
Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R). On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid.

10 most obese states in America (and the right-wing policies that enable them)
Obesity is a problem all over the country, but the problem is worse in some states than in others. A recent Gallup study presented state-by-state obesity stats and while the research didn’t get into politics, one need only scratch the surface to notice that many of the more obese states lean Republican. Of the 10 states Gallup cited as the most obese, eight went for Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election: Mississippi, West Virginia, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and Oklahoma (the exceptions in that top 10 are Ohio and Delaware, both of which Obama won). And except for Montana—which came in at #1 for thinness—all of the 10 states Gallup cited as the least obese are states Obama carried (including Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Mexico, California, Hawaii, Minnesota, Nevada, Colorado and New York).

GOP’s purple-state problem: How a Virginia Medicaid battle augurs huge risks for the party
Ordinarily I’d never recommend reading an editorial from the Washington Times, but earlier this week the largely unread ultraconservative newspaper gave the Virginia GOP an enthusiastic thumbs-up for obstructing the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare, and in doing so helped expose the moral bankruptcy that animates much of the opposition to the health law. “With the U.S. Treasury $17.5 trillion in debt already,” the Times opined, “even the federal leviathan can’t keep paying those handouts forever. A state that expands eligibility now will be eventually be stuck paying in full for those new enrollees.” Salon

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Reshoring manufacturing capacity from primarily Asia to the South and Mexico is now a common thing to do and it's all about money. When China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, the average manufacturing wage in China's Pearl River Delta (PRD) was about 58 cents an hour.

Desperation sometimes masks itself in acceptance. Such was the case for Takelia Carter of Marion, Ark. For Carter, the mother of six school-age children in a low paying job, desperation was normative existence. This was her life in Crittenden County, Ark., deep in the Delta where unfortunately one in four families lives well below the poverty level.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
