What We Read Today 14 January 2015

Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries (and sometimes longer ones) of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.

Obama calls for end to 19 state laws that harm community broadband (Jon Brodkin, ars technica)  President Obama has endorsed FCC (Federal Communications Commission) efforts to review with the objective of invalidating laws in 19 states that grant exclusive internet service provider rights to individual companies, protecting them from competition.  See White House report Community-Based Broadband Solutions:  The Benefits of Competition and Choice for Community Development and Highspeed Internet Access (The Executive Office of the President, January 2015).

Report: Sioux tribal government mismanaged $25M in federal loans (Tristan Ahtone, Al Jazeera)  Human Rights Watch alleges ‘patterns of debilitating financial mismanagement’ from 2007 to 2013.  About $25 million in federal loans to the Lower Brule Sioux tribal government appears to have been diverted from services like education and economic development and remains unaccounted for.  The Lower Brule Sioux Reservation is small — 404 square miles — and is home to 1,664 people. In 2000 the median household income was $21,146. The tribe’s leadership has been in power since 1980, according to Human Rights Watch, which says

budgets and financial audits were unavailable to the public despite the tribe’s constitutional requirement that both be published, and “withholding information appears to be systematic practice affecting all who might seek information, including tribal members, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, human rights organizations and even some members of the Tribal Council.”

Warren: I'm Not Running For President. 'Want Me To Put An Exclamation Point At The End?' (Paige Lavender, The Huffington Post)  While most Republicans that have presidential ambitions are still presumably in the race, one Democrat has firmly denied plans to run in 2016.  But Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D, MA) observed the sage adage "never say never" and refused to rule out future possibilities.  But if she waits until 2024 she would be 75 years old on election day, older than Ronald Reagan was (69) when first elected, the oldest of any president.  Only one other president was 65 or older when inaugurated (William Henry Harrison, who died after 30 days in office, 04 April 1841).  However, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I, VT), now 73 and considering running, would set a precedent should he decide to go for it in 2016.  See next article.
