Florida set to be first state to shield residents’ genetic information…

By John Haughey | The Center Square Florida lawmakers on Thursday approved a new law that would make Florida the nation’s first state to prohibit life, disability and long-term care insurance companies from using genetic tests for coverage purposes.House Bill 1189, sponsored by Rep. Chris Sprowls, R-Clearwater, was amended by the Senate and adopted in a 35-3 vote before being kicked back to the House, which approved the measure, 110-0, and sent it to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk.Sprowls, the House Speaker-Designate, said the legislation is a “major victory for Floridians” and “will make Florida the leader in the nation in protecting our residents and our citizens’ genetic information.”Federal law prevents health insurers from using genetic information in underwriting policies and setting premiums, but the prohibition doesn’t apply to life insurance or long-term care coverage.Sprowls, a cancer survivor, said he discovered this “massive loophole” and became alarmed about “genetic privacy” after being placed on hold during a phone call to a life insurance company in 2017.While waiting for assistance, the insurer’s phone system filled the dead air with commercials from DNA-testing companies such as 23andMe and AncestryDNA, he said.Under HB 1189, insurers would be prohibited from using genetic information to price policies and offerings. The bill blocks companies from requiring or soliciting genetic information from applicants.The new law would forbid DNA testing companies from providing genetic information to insurers without customer’s permission.Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, substituted her companion, Senate Bill 1564, for HB 1189 with an amendment to clarify that insurers could take into consideration diagnoses in customers’ medical records, even those based on genetic information.Stargel said the measure protects people who use genetic testing kits offered online or through the mail.“While countless Floridians have used DNA testing kits to learn more about their background or identify potential health risks, they didn’t sign up in order for insurers to access this personal information and then base their policies on it,” she said in a statement. “We are elected to protect Floridians, and this good public policy protects them from insurers invading their private personal DNA data and using it against them.”The lone dissenters were Sens. Kevin Rader, D-Boca Raton; Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg; and Joe Gruters, R-Sarasota, who is also the state Republican committee chairman.Brandes has voted down on the measure through its committee hearings because, he said, it would not permit those with “good DNA” to secure better life insurance rates by voluntarily submitting them to insurers.Brandes’ objection was among those raised by the American Council of Life Insurers in opposing the measure. The trade group said information gleaned from genetic tests could be used to lower insurance premiums.Among other bills sent to DeSantis’ desk Thursday:• House Bill 6055: This bill repeals Florida code regulating telegraph companies, which haven’t been changed since 1913 or been of any relevance in decades.Sen. Ben Albritton, R-Bartow, who substituted HB 6055 for his companion, Senate Bill 1256, was asked by chiding senators to explain for school-aged children and middle-aged people what, exactly, telegraphs are.“Just Google it,” Albritton said. “Next year we’re going after carrier pigeons and Morse code.”The bill passed unanimously in both chambers.• House Bill 327: Companion bill sponsored by Sen. Tom Wright, R-Port Orange, and Rep. David Smith, R-Winter Springs, would increase minimum fines from $500 to $750 for taking bear out of season, increase hunting license suspensions for violators from one year to three years and extend the suspension across 47 other states.Florida has not had a bear season since 2015. The Humane Society of the United States and the Florida Conservation Voters supported the measure.

Ethanol Prices Move Lower

first_img Ethanol Prices Move Lower By Gary Truitt – Apr 17, 2012 SHARE Reports continue to surface that  higher supplies and lower demand is pushing ethanol prices lower. On  Tuesday spot ethanol prices in Chicago and the New York Harbor reversed lower from early gains, with the downside driven by weak fundamentals, trade sources said.  Rick Kment DTN Analyst reported on Tueaday that, “It just seems that guys are bearish on ethanol with corn likely to get a bit weaker. Production (is) still high; demand (is) still OK but not great … looks like it’s trying to break out downward. We have been range trading for quite a bit of time now.” Facebook Twitter Facebook Twittercenter_img SHARE Home Energy Ethanol Prices Move Lower Demand is also weaker writes energy analyst George Orwel, “Aside from pressure from selling in the corn and oil markets on Monday, cash ethanol prices are moving lower in early trade on weakening demand, with buyers stepping to the sidelines.”  Other sources indicate the market will remain soft for some time, “It’s awfully bad everywhere,” said one broker. “Buyers aren’t there. Something’s got to break because the spread is not working,” added another broker. A source projected on Friday that we could see a steep drop in ethanol prices because there are “a lot of unsold stocks.” Previous articleMonsanto To Support National Student Leadership ConferencesNext articleWorkshops Help Farmers Scout For, Diagnose Crop Problems Gary Truittlast_img read more

Villiers students launch Podcasts In The Time of Coronavirus

With a view to giving transition year students a collective creative experience that is COVID compliant, Villiers Secondary School students are making their own podcasts.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Normally, at this time of year in Villiers, a large group of students would be mid rehearsals under the direction of Ann Blake and Niamh Bowen for their TY theatrical production in January. This year, however, no show could take place but the school were keen to give their students a collaborative, creative outlet. Blake, who co-hosts The Limerick Lady Podcast and Ann and Steve Talk Stuff for The Limerick Post, proposed to the school that the students find their voice in a new way that could allow them to safely work together.Over a three week intensive period, under the facilitation of Blake and Bowen, 26 students have gathered ideas and whittled down into teams. Using their own smartphones they started recording, editing and producing seven individual podcasts. Covering topics such as food, music, life before and after COVID 19, gender issues, video games and rugby the students are preparing to release podcasts on the 18th of December.“It’s a new experience that we’ve never done before.” says Grace O’Hagan, a Clare native, who boards in the school and has created The Dish Out Podcast with her friend Laura Kelly.“I’m really enjoying it and I’ll definitely continue making podcasts after this.” “Sometimes it can be difficult for me as English is my second language.” explains Max Beeckmann, a student from Hamburg who is working on a rugby podcast, a sport that he only really started interacting with in September. “But this is a project that’s fun. We are learning so much about podcasting.” Teaming up with friends to create a topic-themed podcast alongside food, Cian McGoey enthuses “It’s good way to try something new with your friends and have a good time with them in a year that’s limited.” Blake explains “It’s great to be able to do something creative with this year’s transition years. In this pandemic it’s so tough for them to have any sense of fun and interaction with their classmates.” Niamh Bowen continues, “We were racking our brains as to what we could do this year. The technology that most young people are walking around with in their pocket is an amazing asset. It allows us to help them create their own work in a way that they can continue to do long after this project ends.”The podcasts will be released on all platforms, in association with the school’s umbrella production title VS Productions, just as school finishes for the Christmas break.

At the time DLDC made no commitment.As a result, The Doe Community Association says legal proceedings by the contractor are proceeding and they have been summonsed to the high court.
