Gobernador Wolf solicita a la legislatura a proteger a los residentes de Pennsylvania de los desalojos y ejecuciones hipotecarias

first_imgGobernador Wolf solicita a la legislatura a proteger a los residentes de Pennsylvania de los desalojos y ejecuciones hipotecarias Economy,  Español,  Press Release Con una orden ejecutiva que protege a los propietarios e inquilinos del desalojo o la ejecución hipotecaria que vence el 1 de septiembre, el Gobernador Tom Wolf envió cartas a la Cámara y al Senado solicitando la legislatura a extender temporalmente la moratoria existente y corregir defectos en la Ley 24 de 2020, un programa creado recientemente, que ayuda a inquilinos y propietarios de viviendas.El gobernador volvió a emitir la orden ejecutiva de desalojo y moratoria en julio; sin embargo, el Código de Servicios de Emergencia no permite más alivio relacionado con la vivienda temporal.La Ley 24 promulgada en mayo proporciona $150 millones para asistencia de alquiler y $25 millones para asistencia hipotecaria. La Agencia de Financiamiento de Vivienda de Pennsylvania administra el programa utilizando fondos de la Ley CARES. Sin embargo, el programa está ayudando a menos personas de las previstas, en parte debido a un límite de asistencia de $750. La carta del gobernador incluye recomendaciones de PHFA para abordar los problemas para que el programa pueda ayudar a más residentes de Pennsylvania a medida que la comunidad continúa luchando contra la pandemia de COVID-19 y su impacto económico.“La Asamblea General debe actuar para solucionar estos problemas de inmediato para brindar una asistencia significativa a este sector vital de la economía y prevenir el desplazamiento de los habitantes de Pennsylvania mientras continuamos luchando contra el virus COVID-19”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “La Legislatura debería aumentar el pago de $750 al mes a al menos el 130% de los límites de HUD, lo que en realidad ayudaría a los propietarios en áreas de mayor costo, conduciría a una mayor participación en el programa y aumentaría el número de inquilinos asistidos.“Además, el programa debería permitir que los participantes que necesiten asistencia obtengan asistencia para el alquiler sin tener que pagar atrasos. Los residentes de Pennsylvania no deberían tener que renunciar a alimentos o medicinas para mantenerse al día con el alquiler y ser elegibles para recibir ayuda”.El gobernador propuso un alivio adicional para los inquilinos hoy temprano cuando dio a conocer su agenda legislativa de otoño. El gobernador propone $100 millones adicionales para el Programa de Alivio de Alquiler PHFA CARES. La asistencia seguirá estando disponible en forma de subvención y los fondos se pagarán directamente a los dueños o propietarios.El gobernador también propone dividir $100 millones entre el Programa de Asistencia de Energía para Hogares de Bajos Ingresos (LIHEAP) y un nuevo programa de agua/aguas residuales de emergencia administrado por PENNVEST para ayudar a los clientes residenciales que estarían sujetos a la terminación del servicio cuando la moratoria actual de la PUC en terminaciones eventualmente se levanta.Lea las carta del Gobernador a la Cámara y al Senado.View this information in English.

ICC World Cup Don’t compare Kohli’s IPL captaincy record with that of India: Ganguly

first_imghighlights Bangalore finished second from the bottom in the recently concluded IPL. Ganguly believes World cup stint will be different for Virat as captain. India will play their first World Cup game against South Africa on June 5.  Kolkata: Former captain Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday insisted that Virat Kohli’s IPL captaincy will not have an impact in the World Cup as he enjoys a good record as an ODI skipper. The biggest advantage for Kohli will be the support of two very successful leaders — Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma — on whom he can fall back on during testing situations. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s repeated failures in the Indian Premier League have put the spotlight on Kohli’s leadership skills but Ganguly said Indian captaincy is a different ball game.”Don’t compare Virat Kohli’s IPL captaincy record with that of India. His captaincy records for India is very good actually. He’s got him in his team as the vice-captain. Dhoni is there. So he’s well supported,” Ganguly told PTI on the sidelines of a promotional programme.The 46-year-old felt Hardik Pandya will play a key role in India’s campaign at the mega event, starting May 30 in England.”Hardik Pandya will play a key role. He is in tremendous form. He will be very, very important for India’s chances.” The former left-handed batsman picked Pakistan alongside India, Australia and England as the four semifinalists in the upcoming World Cup, saying their records in world tournaments in England is remarkable. England has been a ‘lucky’ venue for the Pakistan, who had won the 2017 Champions Trophy beating India and had also bagged their maiden World Twenty20 title in 2009.”Pakistan’s record in world tournaments in England is remarkable. They won the Champions Trophy two years ago, they won the 2009 World T20 in England.”He also cited the recent example of Pakistan’s second ODI against England, in which they almost chased down a mammoth 374 before going down by only 12 runs.”Pakistan always play well in England. You see the last game in England. England got 374 and Pakistan just lost by 12 runs. They also beat England in England in Test matches there because of their bowling lineup.”Ganguly, however, was quick to add that Virat Kohli’s men should not be wary of Pakistan and they would prove to be strong contenders.”I don’t believe in records. Both of them will have to play well on that particular day. India will be a very good side. They will be very hard to beat. Team which has the likes of Kohli, Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan can’t be weak.”Asked to compare this team with that of his team of 2003 that lost to Australia in the final, Ganguly said: “Both the teams are of different generations. We played the final in 2003. I hope they play the final and win it.”Indian cricket is so strong. And we have been strong for the last 25-30 years. Every world competition that we play, we will have a chance. This team has as much chance as we had in 2003.”Starting as one of the favourites, India would be under tremendous pressure but Ganguly felt it would bring out the best from Kohli and Co.”So it’s good that India is under pressure, every other team in the World Cup will be under pressure. You don’t want to turn up like a Nepal or an Ireland where the entire world thinks that you’re not going to win.”You rather turn up like an India or an Australia or an England where everybody says this team is going to win the World Cup. So Virat, probably being the best player of the world at the moment, is as much under pressure as anybody else and that will be good for him because he will turn up, work hard, he will be pumped and get India going.”Ganguly said it would be an interesting World Cup as all 10 teams will play each other before the best four qualify for the knockouts. “This team has as much as opportunity. It’s a great World Cup because all 10 teams play against each other and the best four qualify. There are strong teams and you realise England, Pakistan, West Indies all can win.”So it’s good that India is under pressure because it will help them perform and it’s going to be exciting 55 days of cricket,” Ganguly said.
