Chu Statement on Vote to Avoid a Government Shutdown Published on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 | 1:34 pm Just hours before the deadline to avoid a government shutdown, the House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution to fund the government until December 11, 2015. After the vote to pass the continuing resolution, the House voted for a resolution that would add language to defund Planned Parenthood. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27), who voted for the continuing resolution and against the measure to defund Planned Parenthood, released the following statement:With this resolution we avoided one looming partisan shutdown only to set up the next for December. Meanwhile, sequester cuts continue to strangle domestic services and our defense capabilities. This pattern of lurching from crisis to crisis while ignoring the requirements of real, long-term budgeting must end. Worse, Republicans once again tried to use the urgency of keeping the government open as an excuse to attack women’s healthcare by trying to defund Planned Parenthood. This ploy, which almost led to yet another government shutdown, threatened to have serious impacts on the health of women and families. I am proud to stand by Planned Parenthood as an essential provider of safe, legal, and quality care.“Today is not a victory, it is just doing the bare minimum to avoid a failure. The sequester must be lifted and government should return to funding as normal. I voted today to avoid a shutdown, but I would much prefer to vote on a budget that meets our needs, helps families succeed, puts our country on a secure footing, and provides real confidence in our government and the economy.” HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Ayurveda Heath Secrets From Ancient IndiaHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Most Influential Women In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeauty Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Make a comment First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published.

first_img“The Heisman Trophy presentation is aired on ESPN, so any decision in terms of a TV show would be made in conjunction with ESPN,” Henning told SN. “The board has not made any decision in terms of what Heisman 2020 is going to look like.”The decisions of the Big Ten, Pac-12, Mountain West and Mid-American all came within the past week. Conference USA was expected to make a determination Wednesday. The SEC, ACC, Big 12, American and Sun Belt all are cautiously moving forward with plans for fall competition, but there still is a chance any or all could abandon them.“As someone that works I college football,” Henning said, “we all want to see the game played. But at the end of the day, the health and safety of everyone involved is of paramount importance.” If this were an ordinary college football season, the Heisman Trophy would be awarded to an extravagantly accomplished player — most likely a quarterback and almost certainly from a Power 5 program — on the evening of Saturday, Dec. 12.If you were not aware before Tuesday that this will not be a typical season, surely the postponement of college football competition in the Big Ten and Pacific-12 shook you awake. They joined the Mid-American Conference and Mountain West in removing themselves from fall sports and presenting the spring as an option. So what does the Heisman do if roughly half the players are active in the fall and the rest in the spring?Would it be awarded to those who compete in the fall? Would it be delayed so that any athlete who competes in the coming academic year has a chance? MORE: CFP director hopes four-team playoff can go on, despite cancellationsDo they saw the trophy in half, and present the base to one player and the stiff-arm to another?“Essentially, at this point in time, no decisions have been made,” Tim Henning, associate director at The Heisman Trophy Trust, told Sporting News.The winner of the 2020 Heisman, whenever it is awarded, would succeed LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and join one of the most prestigious, exclusive clubs in sports. It includes such legends as Cam Newton, Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Tony Dorsett and Roger Staubach.Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is the lone returning finalist from 2019. If the award were presented in the fall, he would have no chance. It seems unlikely that he will compete if the Big Ten does pull off a spring season because of the proximity to the 2021 NFL Draft, but he has not indicated his preference. He is considered a first-round prospect even without another strong season for the Buckeyes.Henning said a decision about any alteration to the presentation of the 2020 award would be made by the Heisman’s nine-member board of trustees, which is chaired by Michael J. Comerford. They conduct monthly meetings to discuss matters pertinent to the award, and it would be possible to call an emergency meeting if warranted.last_img read more
