Draft Federal Data Strategy Too ‘Unwieldy’ to Implement, Stakeholders Say

The meat of the pending Federal Data Strategy’a draft list of actionable ‘practices’ to help agencies utilize data as a strategic asset’is too difficult to understand and needs to take into account the end-users, according to data advocates, industry experts and federal employees.

Rather than a three-dimensional matrix, MITRE is suggesting reducing the effort down to a one-page reference document. Blackburn and his team developed an example of what that could look like, with 18 data practices pegged to the five focus areas.

How will California’s climate ambitions reshape food and agriculture?

At the outset of last month’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco ‘ even before the release this week of a dire U.N. climate report‘ California Governor Jerry Brown made a bold announcement, setting a target for the state’ the world’s fifth-largest economy‘ to achieve net zero emissions by 2045.

California has taken on a heightened role in climate diplomacy since the United States’ 2017 withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement. But even insiders were stunned by Brown’s wide-ranging executive order. Ecologist and incoming executive director of climate advocacy organization Project Drawdown Jonathan Foley hailed the move as ‘the most ambitious serious climate commitment ever made on earth.’

Paul W. Hughes: In 1996, Congress adopted civil penalties for those who are ‘unlawfully present’ in the United States. If an individual is ‘unlawfully present’ for 181 days or more, he or she is barred from reentering the country for a period of three years. If the period of unlawful presence reaches 365 days or more, the reentry bar extends to ten years. For individuals with family, academic or business ties to the United States, imposition of a reentry bar poses an enormous practical hardship.

The Republicans Broke Congress. Democrats Can Fix It.

In the great 1972 political satire The Candidate, Robert Redford plays a novice candidate who runs a slick campaign for Senate and wins an upset against an unbeatable incumbent. On election night, right before the media throng arrives, he turns to his campaign guru, played by Peter Boyle, and says, ‘What do we do now?’ The movie ends without an answer.

House Democrats are no strangers to governance; even with the influx of newcomers, they have a veteran group who have been in the majority before, many under both divided and united government. But the question of what do we do now is still a pressing one, since the dynamic in today’s Washington is unlike any they’and the country’have ever seen.
