South Carolina Passes Flood Insurance Law to Boost Private Market

Category: 

 

The state of South Carolina is aiming to foster new flood insurance coverage options through the enactment of the South Carolina Private Flood Insurance Act.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster signed the legislation, passed Sept. 23 by state lawmakers, into law Sept. 28. The S.C. Private Flood Insurance Act which takes effect Nov. 28, 2020, will provide insurers “the ability to test products in the market and thus give consumers greater choice for flood insurance coverage,” according to the legislation.

“We are encouraged by the passing of this important legislation as we try to bolster competition in the flood insurance market,” said Ray Farmer, director of the South Carolina Department of Insurance (SCDOI). “Currently, our consumers have very few options for purchasing flood insurance. While we are glad the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) exists to offer coverage, we realize that NFIP coverage may not work for every property owner. This is a chance to increase availability, which we believe will lead to competitive pricing and more options to meet consumers’ specifics need.”

The main provisions in the act include:

Buhari Signs Law That Makes Minimum Qualification For IGP Position Higher Than President’s
A law newly signed by President Muhammadu Buhari has raised the minimum qualification for the position of Inspector-General of Police.
According to the Nigeria Police Act 2020, anybody who will be appointed as the IGP must possess a first degree or its equivalent.
Section 7(2) of the Act reads in part, “The person to be appointed as Inspector-General of Police shall be a senior police officer not below the rank of an Assistant Inspector-General of Police with the requisite academic qualification of not less than a first degree or its equivalent in addition to professional and management experience.”
However, the requirement for becoming Nigeria’s President is much lower than that of the IGP.
Chapter VI, Part I, Section 131 of the Nigerian constitution states that a person may be qualified for election of the office of the president if they are a citizen of Nigeria by birth, have attained the age of 35 and have been educated up to at least school certificate level or its equivalent.

Chaos reigned supreme at the electricity department as hundreds of people had queued up to pay their electricity bills. The department has been witnessing huge crowds after cheque drop facility was dropped allowing only cash and online payments.

Confusion prevailed after the office was closed to public after a senior staff had tested positive for coronavirus. Nearly 30 staff was also tested while reports are awaited.

The residents expressed their displeasure over the confusion created by the department in withdrawing the cheque drop facilities and instead insisting on cash and online payments.

Even staff expressed their displeasure over the functioning of the department as there is little space of maintaining social distancing.

The people said that they have been waiting for nearly an hour to pay the bills but were informed that the department is closed for public in view of a staff testing positive. He said not all people are well versed with online payments. Instead if a drop box facility was there it would have eased the pressure on customers who could just drop the cheques and return home in view of the dangers of the pandemic.

It may be recalled that the chief engineer had recently issued a circular withdrawing the cheque drop facility limiting the payment to online and cash modes only.

The staff on the other hand who did not want to be named said there is a big rush from 10 am and there is no space for maintaining social distancing as the building is located near the road. The staff has to find their way through the crowds exposing them to the danger of the highly infectious virus.

New York’s Green Light Law Facilitates Behavior Found in 9/11 Attacks

Category: 

They say people learn from their mistakes, but it appears elected political officials in New York aren’t going to be doing so anytime soon.
The state of New York recently amended its controversial “Green Light Law” to make it a felony to share Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) information with federal immigration authorities. The Green Light Law was enacted in 2019 to grant illegal aliens driver’s licenses. New York, of course, was ground zero for the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, in which terrorists used state-issued identification documents to facilitate their attacks and law enforcement failed to effectively share information on these terrorists, so lawmakers must consider abolishing the law.
