Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here United States Capitol west front WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. House of Representatives today unanimously approved a bipartisan amendment authored by Rep. Stephanie Murphy to ensure that families in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico are treated equally under the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program. The MIECHV program provides annual grants to states and territories to fund home visiting services, including parenting education, for families with young children. Reps. Jenniffer González-Colón, R-P.R., and Nydia Velázquez, D-N.Y., co-sponsored the amendment.Rep. Stephanie Murphy“The MIECHV program invests in our children in a way that strengthens families, helps lift them out of poverty, and increases the chance that they will become productive and successful citizens. My amendment simply ensures that Puerto Rico gets its fair share of this important federal investment,” said Murphy. “The unanimous passage of my amendment helps underscore Congress’ commitment to our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We’re all part of one American family, and I’ll continue working across party lines to ensure that Puerto Rico receives this nation’s full and equal support.”The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) makes grants to states and territories based, in part, on a U.S. Census Bureau data product on childhood poverty.  However, that product does not include information on Puerto Rico or the other territories. As a result, Puerto Rico always receives the minimum grant allowed by law, even though the island of 3.4 million people has a high rate of childhood poverty.  Murphy’s bipartisan amendment would require HHS to use the best federal data available for every state and territory—including an appropriate alternative data source in the case of Puerto Rico—when making grant allocations.Murphy has also been working in Congress to deliver urgent aid to Americans impacted by the most recent hurricanes, whether they reside in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands. Murphy delivered remarks on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives today in support of her amendment.

  • Anyone for pitch and putt in Stenson Park?

    first_imgWhatsApp Advertisement Previous article‘Who are you kidding’ seeks contestantsNext articleNo rest for the weary as Kidney names 33 for summer tour admin Linkedin Balls swallowed up in potholes – A picture can tell a thousand words, as shown by Gerry Neill and his caddy, Darragh Neill, on what they have termed Hole 196, at Stenson Park, off High Road, Thomondgate.They have brought to attention the ongoing problem of potholes in their estate, and refer to this one as the bottomless pit, so deep it swallows the ball. Indeed, the avenues are so laden with potholes that a game of pitch and putt is possible.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Stenson Park will have to wait until mid June before any move can be made by Limerick City Council to commence road treatment works.The number of potholes has sprouted all over the housing estate and they have grown progressively deeper and more dangerous to motorists safety.They are also causing damage to tyres (with many tyre blowouts), and in many cases are forcing residents to swerve across the road in an effort to avoid them. Councillors for the city’s northside have repeatedly demanded, as a matter of extreme urgency, that some form, even a temporary road improvement project be carried out without delay.The matter was again raised at an area meeting in City Hall this week, but despite the mounting frustration of residents, Cllr Maurice Quinlivan, who resides in Stenson Park, and is confronted with the issue on a daily basis, told the Limerick Post:“We have to wait until June 17, which is the expiry date for any objections to be submitted against the city council’s taking in charge of Stenson Park.“This was advertised recently and is part of the legal process required, but if no objections are submitted, by that date, the taking in charge process can then go ahead”.However, that, according to the councillor, does not automatically mean that a comprehensive roadworks programme will then be rolled out for Stenson Park.“It’s a question of funding, but I believe that some has been put aside to get the pothole problem tackled. Work will have to get underway at the very earliest date to treat these highly dangerous potholes which are making life very difficult for the residents, and for anyone going in or out of the estate”.Residents of Stenson Park Gerry Neill and his Caddy Darragh Neill on “HOLE’’ 196 of Stenson Park’s new pitch and putt course.  Printcenter_img Facebook Email Twitter NewsLocal NewsAnyone for pitch and putt in Stenson Park?By admin – May 19, 2010 858 last_img read more
