Dr. Bucshon Calls on Senate Democrats to Allow Vote on Gorsuch

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement after Senate Democrats established enough votes to filibuster – procedurally block – the President’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch:“Judge Gorsuch is an impressive jurist who will undoubtedly uphold the rule of law. His record clearly demonstrates he understands his role on the court is not to legislate from the bench, but rather to apply the law as written by elected representatives of the people. There’s not a more qualified judge to replace the late Antonin Scalia,” said Bucshon. “Unfortunately, Senate Democrats today made clear their intent to block a vote on Judge Gorsuch. This obstruction flies in the face of the will of the American people. I call on Senate Democrats to put politics aside and allow a vote on this qualified nominee; and I support Leader McConnell’s intent to confirm Judge Gorsuch using all options available to the Senate if this political theater continues.”  last_img read more

CWI sets timelines for consultation, implementation of recommendations

first_imgCRICKET West Indies (CWI) have established timelines for consultation and implementation of the recommendations of the Wehby Report.CWI Board of Directors proposed a way forward following a presentation by president Ricky Skerritt of a Board Paper entitled ‘Governance Reform Report – Next Steps’.The paper called for the Board of Directors, Territorial Boards and their members, and all stakeholders, to do all that is possible to stimulate, encourage and facilitate the reading, discussion and consultation of the report, which was widely distributed on August 17, 2020.According to Skerritt, Senator Don Wehby has offered to make himself and other Task Force members available to provide explanations and facilitate constructive discussion on the report’s findings, if needed. The paper encouraged all stakeholders to engage in any consultation they deemed necessary to help pave the path forward towards implementation.“There will be COVID19-related timing challenges, and likely political head-winds ahead, but I assure all stakeholders and lovers of West Indies Cricket that I will personally champion the important process of CWI Governance Reform, no matter how long it takes now that CWI has received and distributed such a pragmatic and do-able cricket-centric report from Senator Wehby and his team of highly qualified and experienced advisers,” Skerritt said.“Hopefully good sense will prevail, and CWI will show the world that we are serious about modernisation and improvement.”According to the Board paper, the first deadline is for the report reading and consultation process to be completed by Friday, October 16, 2020. But that would depend on the ability of Territorial Boards to effectively consult with their membership under the COVID-19 protocol group gathering limitations.During the same period, CWI will be seeking advice on legal processes and actions that would be required to implement the recommendations of the report. The Board paper also calls for final feedback from CWI Board members and Territorial Boards to be documented and submitted to CWI by the middle of November.Any resulting suggestions and decision-making, including actual resolutions for change of Articles, should be completed by November 26 and put before an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) which CWI hopes can take place face-to-face by the middle of December 2020.
