Governor Abbott Signs Harvey Relief Legislation

first_img Share 00:00 /00:38 X – / 6Governor Greg Abbott has signed a bill aimed at aiding disaster recovery and reducing the risk of future flooding across Texas. Abbott signed the measure as one of four Harvey relief bills at a ceremony held in Houston on Thursday.Abbott credited Texas’ congressional delegation and the Trump administration for passing $30 billion worth of disaster relief and flood infrastructure funding. “Some of those federal dollars, however, require a local match,” the governor said. “Texas is assisting local governments by providing much of that local match through the framework created in Senate Bill 7.”Local governments will need to show they have applied for, and been approved for, federal dollars in order to unlock the matching state funds.The related legislation Abbott signed included Senate Bill 6, which creates a disaster recovery loan program within the Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM); House Bill 5, which requires TDEM to develop a plan for debris removal following catastrophes; and House Bill 7, which requires the Office of the Governor to develop a list of waivers that can be applied to state laws in order to aid local governments following a disaster.

That’s according to data from Greatfire.org, a website that frequently tests popular websites to determine their availability to Chinese internet users.Oliver had spent some 20 minutes in the June 17 edition of his show to take a closer look at China’s economic rise, the Chinese government’s crackdown on dissent and the ever-expanding power of China’s president Xi Jinping. Oliver also put the spotlight on some memes used by China’s dissidents, which includes comparing Xi Jinping to Winnie the Pooh.That apparently didn’t go over well with China’s government censors. HBO’s entire web presence became unavailable to its internet users late last week, and has remained blocked ever since, according to Greatfire.China has long tightly controlled the content its citizens can consume on the internet. The country does so with the help of what’s known as the “great firewall,” which allows state-run ISPs to monitor and censor all internet traffic entering the country. However, China’s internet users frequently regain access to blocked content with the help of VPN services and other tools meant to circumvent internet censorship.last_img read more
