Real estate sales transactions are quite a complicated production. Unless you buy and sell real estate with some frequency, you will be blown away by all the associated expenses.

For starters, there is no specific list of closing costs. The main ones will be discussed here. Second, and with few exceptions, there is no law that dictates who pays the closing costs of a real estate transaction. It comes down to what the buyer and seller agree to.

When it comes to certain closing costs, there are traditions and customs that prevail in a transaction in Texas and in these cases there are certain expenses that the buyer almost always pays and certain expenses that the seller almost always pays. . Even the contract forms that the State of Texas provides to real estate licensees have closing cost responsibilities assigned to buyers and sellers by tradition. A seller usually pays a real estate commission if the property is listed with a broker. He will pay for the title insurance for the new owner. In the rare event that a buyer pays for their title insurance, they have the legal right under federal law to choose the title insurance company. The cost of title insurance is based on the price of the property sold.

The seller provides a deed of guarantee. The seller provides tax certificates indicating that the taxes on the property are in force or if there are tax arrears due. If the seller has to repay a mortgage, he bears the costs of preparing the lien releases. Sellers pay taxes due on the property from the first of the year through the closing date, plus any overdue taxes. If a seller and buyer agree to non-customary terms, they can change the standard contract language as long as there is no agreement that contradicts the law. For example, under a VA (Veterans Administration) loan, the seller must pay for an inspection for wood-destroying insects (termites, carpenter ants, etc.). There is, however, no law that states that the seller cannot increase the purchase price to cover expenses, as long as the buyer and seller still agree on all terms.

A cash-paying buyer typically has low closing costs. He pays to register the deed in public records and will pay half the cost to complete the sale. The seller will also remit to the buyer the taxes he owes until the closing date because the buyer will receive the invoice for the whole year in October. If a buyer gets a loan, they can expect to pay for an appraisal, credit reports, loan origination fees, usually an investigation if not going through a local lender, preparation and registration of all documents relating to the loan. It must also provide title insurance to the lender, although lender title insurance is very inexpensive.

With respect to surveys and the purchase of undeveloped land, there is no clear custom as to who pays for a survey. Whatever the buyer and seller agree will be the deciding factor. If a buyer is considering using a non-local lender, such as an out-of-town mortgage broker or an internet lender, closing costs can be significantly higher. Don’t be fooled by ads that say “No closing costs”. It is simply not true. These costs will somehow be buried in the loan, resulting in a higher effective interest rate.

If an FHA or VA (Government Type Loans) is involved, there are certain expenses associated with the purchase that federal law will not allow the buyer to pay and the seller will have to pay. What usually happens with this type of loan is that the price will be pushed back to cover these expenses and the buyer will ultimately pay for them through their mortgage payments. Sometimes a buyer will not have the money to cover closing costs and the costs will be added to the purchase price of the property. This mechanism can significantly increase the amount of interest a buyer pays over the term of the loan.

The reality is that a buyer with good credit will almost always be better off looking for financing in their hometown. Local lenders will often have higher interest rates than non-local lenders, so you need to weigh what you’ll save in closing costs against what your higher interest payments will be. How long the buyer plans to own the home can affect whether a local or out-of-town lender is chosen. A competent real estate permit holder can help you with this type of calculation. By law, a lender must provide a buyer with a GFE: Good Faith Estimate of Closing Costs and Monthly Payments. It’s always a good idea to visit more than one lender so GFEs can be compared. Some GFEs have misleading numbers and this is where an agent can help the buyer interpret the data. The federal government has also tightened GFE requirements to more accurately reflect closing costs.

Whenever a buyer and seller transact between them, they must have a contract drawn up by a lawyer so that whoever pays for what does not become a point of contention at the closing table. Banks and title companies will often require the parties to obtain a contract so that disputes do not arise at the closing table. Some real estate dealers, for a small fee, can draft a contract using Texas forms. No buyer or seller should ever have an agreement in which one party forces the other to agree to pay “all” closing costs without specifically stating what those costs are and what the maximum dollar amount for each of those costs should be. .

Many other costs can be associated with the acquisition or disposal of a property. Today, most buyers have the homes they buy inspected. This is a cost that may be incurred even if the sale does not close. In most cases, inspections are a good idea, since most sellers aren’t aware of every little flaw. Once an agent had to hit me three times on the head before I agreed to have the furnace inspected on a house we were buying. It was mid-February and the oven had a cracked heat exchanger and was emitting carbon monoxide. Regardless of the time of year, vendors had to turn off the furnace. The sellers also gave us a credit for a replacement oven. The $60.00 spent on the inspection was a drop in the bucket and a potential lifesaver.

A typical whole-home inspection by a licensed Texas inspector (don’t use any other!) can cost anywhere from $300.00 to much more depending on the size and construction type of the home. Wood-destroying insect inspections can cost around $125.00 and are money well spent for many types of residences. A few years ago, we were involved in a commercial transaction where the buyer had already spent $500.00 for a building inspection and an additional $2,400.00 for an environmental inspection. Inspection revealed that there had been a “promiscuous” spill on the property. The lender, in order to protect themselves, then demanded an additional inspection which probably would have cost as little as $10,000.00. The case died because the buyer did not want to spend $10,000.00 without knowing if the seller would be willing to remedy any contamination found; and, if contamination had been discovered, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality would have required remedial action that could cost tens of thousands of dollars. The consequences of buying the building without further inspection could be devastating for both seller and buyer.

Incidentally, when Southern Multifoods purchased the southeast corner of South Jackson and East Rusk Streets in 1998, the vendor had to spend over $25,000.00 to remove the contaminated soil. There was a gas station on this corner decades ago.

Sellers often end up incurring expenses they never imagined. In the example above, the seller had to take a few thousand dollars out of their net proceeds because of the furnace. There are occasions when a seller’s title is defective because the seller may have a judgment against him that must be satisfied in order to convey clear title; or additional owners (such as heirs) come out of the woodwork and the seller has to incur legal costs to get all rightful owners on board. Again, another reason why lawyers – like it or not – and title reviews should be part of any real estate transaction.

Will the Texas Dreams of Light Rail ever come true? https://uncharted3blog.com/will-the-texas-dreams-of-light-rail-ever-come-true/ Thu, 23 Jun 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://uncharted3blog.com/will-the-texas-dreams-of-light-rail-ever-come-true/ Here’s what we know for sure: Texas Central CEO Carlos Aguilar, who heads the private company with an ambitious (and continually delayed) plan to operate a high-speed rail line between Houston and Dallas, recently announced that he had resigned from his position… via LinkedIn. “While I cannot align our current stakeholders with a common vision […]]]>

Here’s what we know for sure: Texas Central CEO Carlos Aguilar, who heads the private company with an ambitious (and continually delayed) plan to operate a high-speed rail line between Houston and Dallas, recently announced that he had resigned from his position… via LinkedIn.

“While I cannot align our current stakeholders with a common vision of the way forward, I wish the project every success and remain convinced of the importance of this endeavor to the safety and prosperity of all Texans. “, he wrote, after noting that he was only announcing his departure because a Spanish-based outlet was about to report it.

It remains unclear who will take Aguilar’s place or if there is even a business left to run. The section of the company’s website listing the management team is empty, while the company’s hotline is down. On top of that, the entire board quietly disbanded earlier this month, chairman emeritus and co-founder Richard Lawless confirmed in various reports. (Our request for comment from Texas Central representatives has not yet been returned, but we will update as soon as we have a response.)

But despite all the signs that the company is, or will soon be, defunct, Texas Central attorneys insist that news of the company’s demise is greatly exaggerated, as the saying goes.

“Contrary to such unsubstantiated speculation, Texas Central remains open for business under its new management, continues to seek new investment, and pursues the development of this high-speed train,” wrote Marie Yeates, the company’s appellate attorney. letter submitted in response to an amicus curiae filed by landowner Calvin House, one of several rural landowners who have taken their opposition to the company’s use of eminent domain all the way to the Texas Supreme Court.

Although the court is due to rule on the company’s right to use eminent domain in Miles v. Texas Central any day, House had suggested in its recent filing that this may soon be a moot point. . He pointed to Lawless’ recent announcement that the company is now managed by Michael Bui as evidence. Bui works for FTI Consulting and “advises clients through distress, bankruptcy, reorganization and sale events,” House claimed.

So is this the end? Have Texas Central’s high-speed rail ambitions completely faded away? The answer is still so steeped in spin, politics, and the sometimes tense tensions between urban Texas residents (mostly pro-line) and rural residents (mostly opposed to the line cutting through their land) that it is hard to say. Attorneys for Lawless and Texas Central say there are signs of life, while House, Texans Against Highspeed Rail and other opponents say resignations associated with unpaid property taxes, as we reported in April , are clear signs that the end is most likely near.

We probably won’t know for sure until the company dissolves or finally starts building the railroad.

Either way, this is decidedly an ignominious moment for the company. Even though the concept of high-speed trains going back and forth across Texas always seemed like a long shot, Texas Central has long had the kind of loot, bluster and support that made it entirely possible that they be the ones who would finally succeed.

According to the many statements, updates and niggling emails that Texas Central has sent over the years since the Houston-Dallas project became the talk of every community on the proposed railroad route, it was all happening. wonderfully and the train would be up and running before we knew it. They would pave the way by 2017 with trains carrying passengers between the two cities — with a stop at Bryan-College Station — by 2021, company representatives told us in 2015.

They seemed downright confident at the time.

The thought seemed to be that since they had what they thought was a good idea – to give people who didn’t want to pay airfare another way to avoid the long, boring ride on I-45 – it would happen surely.

Their prospects seemed quite promising at first. In 2008, Lawless, a former CIA and US Department of Defense Asian aide who had developed a passion for the Shinkansen bullet train while stationed in Japan, spoke directly to the president of Japan Central with his idea of ​​bringing the technology to the United States Japan Central had been looking to break into the American market for years, so the two teamed up and quickly focused on Texas for the front line. A few years later, Texas Central was officially created, with Drayton McClane Jr. as one of the main investors and former Harris County judge Robert Eckels on board as CEO and chairman.

But the cracks in Texas Central’s plan began to show as the company struggled to move forward. High-speed rail had already been tried in Texas in the 90s, a plan that eventually fell apart due to a lack of funding with about as much ceremony as we see now.

They would not make the same mistakes that the French-backed consortium that tried to build a line in the 1990s had made, Texas Central representatives insisted. They weren’t going to try to get government funding, they said. (And they didn’t – until their fundraising and secured lending capped them so much below the estimated $12 billion cost to build the project that they started applying for grants. years ago when even last year, Aguilar said on a podcast that President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill was crucial to the future of the project.)

They had a plan that would transform the Northwest Mall from an archaic relic of a forgotten era of in-person retail into a vital and thriving Houston focal point once again. (It’s still a decaying commercial artifact that sits unmolested along the junction of 610, I-10, and 290.)

The inauguration would take place very soon. (Currently now means this fall.)

Now, anyone who examines Central Texas tea leaves may be prognosticating incorrectly. Texas Central could come alive again and city dwellers could all settle in to read a book or watch the coastal plains of Houston give way to the prairie of Dallas in just 90 minutes in a few years. Anything can happen, but still, you might not want to bet on it.

ALBANY, NY (AP) — New York’s highest court on Tuesday dismissed an effort to free Happy the elephant from the Bronx Zoo, ruling that she did not meet the definition of an unlawfully confined “person.”

The 5-2 ruling by the state Court of Appeals upholds an earlier court ruling and means Happy will not be released through habeas corpus proceedings, which is a way for people to challenge illegal confinement.

Tesla has just filed its annual proxy statement with the SEC and revealed that it plans a three-for-one stock split, and that board member Larry Ellison does not plan to run again.

Shares of Tesla rose more than 1% after hours after closing at $696.69 on Friday.

In the filing, the company wrote of the proposed stock split, “Our success depends on attracting and retaining excellent talent,” and that “highly competitive compensation packages,” offering each employed an option to receive stock, helped Tesla do so. “We believe the stock split would help reset the market price of our common stock so that our employees have more flexibility in managing their equity.”

A stock split is cosmetic and could mean smaller investors feel they can afford the stock, but those investors are tiny compared to larger institutions. Many brokerages already offer investors split trades, allowing small investors to buy a slice of a seemingly expensive stock.

In its 2022 proxy filing, the electric vehicle and renewable energy industry also disclosed that board member Larry Ellison currently owns 1.5% of Tesla shares. Ellison plans to step down as a Tesla board member.

The filing also says that Tesla CEO Elon Musk currently owns 23.5% of Tesla stock and Vanguard owns 6% of Tesla stock. Musk has sold a sizable chunk of his Tesla holdings since late 2021, in part to boost a stake in Twitter, the social media giant he agreed to acquire for around $44 billion.

Tesla announced a similar five-for-one stock split in August 2020.

In thirteen different shareholder-suggested proposals, Tesla is asked to review and disclose more about its anti-harassment and discrimination efforts, lobbying practices, supply chains and workforce, as well as details of its own water use and water-related climate impacts and risks. .

The company plans to hold its annual shareholder meeting online and with a limited number of shareholders invited to attend in person at the new Tesla factory in Austin, Texas on August 4, 2022.

You are more likely to have a son performing in the Super Bowl than a daughter to compete on the Miss America stage.

It’s an old adage often cited by contestants of the Miss America Scholarship Pageant.

It’s ultimately true too.

You see, Miss America recently celebrated her 100th birthday, but in just 56 years of Super Bowls, more men have performed on that famous stage than on the scholarship pageant runway.

It’s actually quite easy to do the math.

With two 53-player teams preparing for the Super Bowl each year, the number of attendees for the annual NFL Championship Game has already exceeded the number of young women who have appeared on the scholarship program scene.

A teacher who grew up in Pickaway County hopes to defy those odds, as she competes for the Miss Ohio title in Mansfield next week. The winner of this pageant will step onto the Miss America stage in Connecticut in December.

Emily Legenza, 24, is currently the choir director for the Alexander Middle and High School Choirs and also teaches general music for grades 6-12 in Athens County. During her time away from the classroom, she is the college’s cheer coach.

“I was a student teaching at the schools in Jackson City when COVID-19 hit which cut short my time with them, but luckily I was able to interview Alexander in person before all of that. I was hired in February/March by Alexander Schools about a week before the world as we knew it shut down,” she said.

Legenza’s early years were spent in Pickaway County.

“Even though I’m so young, my teachers at Pickaway really set me up for success early on,” she said. “In fact, my first taste of pageantry was at the Circleville Pumpkin Show. I was a freshman competitor – I didn’t win, but I loved being in a parade.

Legenza’s experience in the field of education directly led to her passion for promoting teachers, a cause she chose to take on for her social impact initiative that contestants in all local competitions and Miss America states must have honed and mastered.

“My social impact statement is for teachers only,” she said. “Advocating for teachers nationwide to make meaningful changes to education at local and governmental levels to benefit teacher mental health, working conditions and pay.

“It is time to improve educational supports by ensuring that our educators are supported. This comes from the years of watching my own teachers struggle during particularly poorly funded times (like 2008), but also from my own experiences and observations now as a teacher myself and seeing the side effects of COVID on education. I want to make teaching a more desirable profession. Ultimately, teachers create all other professions.

The ability to not only talk about one’s initiative, but also possess strong interpersonal communication skills are key to winning state and national titles.

Over time, Legenza has been able to hone both its communication skills and its social impact statement. She credits her personal growth to participating in the competitive system for several years and earning her Bachelor of Music Education degree from Ohio University in May 2020.

Her love for OU and the Athens area actually started at an early age and she loves living here.

“I’m originally from Wauseon, Ohio. I lived in Circleville from about 2-6 years old and started school in Pickaway, but moved to Wauseon in 2004. I always told my parents I wanted to come back here someday.

“My parents are both Buckeyes, and I think they accidentally introduced me to Athens,” she continued. “While going down on a family vacation when I was in seventh grade, we were traveling on 33 when we saw the signs for Ohio University. But we had already passed OSU in Columbus, so I was confused.

“We had a brief discussion about the difference between OU and OSU, but when I finally got to see the FUMC steeple, the courthouse and the way the south rear bunks lined the right side hock from the car window, I was sold. From then on, even as a middle schooler, if you asked me where I wanted to go, I said Ohio University. It felt like pure magic to me.

This will be his second trip to the Mansfield stage. As Miss Northwestern Ohio three years ago, Legenze made her state pageant debut.

His return journey, however, was not so smooth.

After competing in seven or eight locals in 2020, Legenza was only able to achieve runner-up status, which was frustrating for her, but then inspired her to compete again last season.

“I didn’t win after doing seven or eight local preliminaries,” she said. “It was awful, I felt absolutely miserable. I felt like I had been the best version of myself at Miss Ohio and I felt like I wasn’t going to get that back.

To make matters worse, she was about to do her last competition of the year and was thrilled to graduate from OU, and then the pandemic hit.

After a year-long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 winners competed last June. Legenza felt she still had some business to take care of with the program and won the Miss Greater Cleveland title in February. This victory allows her to participate in the Miss Ohio pageant this year.

As for one area of ​​competition that’s no longer part of the program, but remains a controversial topic among MAO volunteers and longtime participants, the swimwear category, Legenza has some strong opinions.

“I was a big fan of it when it was there,” she said, adding, however, that eliminating the competition in 2019 made her see things differently when it came to the jersey. bath.

“It gave me my first glimpse of people who don’t necessarily have bodies that fit the mold and were left out. I see the reasoning behind (the decision to cut the swimsuit phase of the competition .)

She noted that her own training regiment was affected by her studies which did not necessarily afford her much time to dance or train as she did when swimsuit was still a judged category.

One area that remains in program scoring is the talent show.

And even that has changed, at least for Legenza.

She will perform an opera piece, titled “Bel Pieacere,” by Handel for Talent, a stark departure from what she sang in the 2019 state competition.

“I changed my talent from musical theater to (opera) because I think I do better classically and I wanted to do something where I could be myself,” she said.

Being herself is essential to Legenza’s game strategy to win Miss Ohio.

And there’s no better competition segment better suited to what she does than the interview portion of the program.

This year’s applicants, for the first time, can submit an actual resume to the judges, instead of fact sheets that don’t necessarily portray young women from the perspective they might want to see when looking for a job. use.

Legenza pointed out that Miss Ohio’s job is, indeed, a job, and she’s applying with the same enthusiasm she used to get her teaching job.

“This year you could use a real job resume and it will give me more control over the interview,” she said.

It is almost certain that as a teacher, Legenza will be asked about her career and the many obstacles that teachers currently face in the classroom.

She is ready for these questions.

The most likely question she will receive from the judges is about guns in classrooms and her answer is pointed.

“I grew up with guns and feel very comfortable with them, but I don’t want to carry one (in class),” she said, adding that she felt security in his building, “But you never know. I’m sure the kids in Texas felt safe.

When the school holds drills, she and many other teachers always get nervous.

“Even though we know it’s a drill, you still have on your mind (wonder if an actual incident might happen.),” she said.

Whether she wins Miss Ohio or not, her teaching-related social impact statement will remain front and center.

If she wins — and even if she just remains the local title holder — Legenza wants school district students to like the teachers.

With several years of participating in local programs and a previous year at a state competition behind her, Legenza feels ready to go from being a local winner to seeing her dream of becoming Miss Ohio finally come to fruition.

When Legenza started competing, she said she “wasn’t a (enough) confident person and now I perform so often it’s like second nature to me.”

Having won around $4,000 in scholarships since entering the Miss Ohio program, Legezna said whoever is crowned the state winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship.

If the judges selected her, she would be officially free of college loan debt.

“I actually didn’t pay anything out of pocket for my senior year,” she said of scholarships obtained through MAO.

Although her teaching, coaching, and preparing for competitions don’t leave her much free time, when she has a free moment, Legenza admits to thinking about what winning Miss Ohio would be like.

“I think about it a lot. We can choose our crowning song and I’ve been playing it a lot recently.

The song chosen by Legenza is “What Dreams are Made Of”, by Hillary Duff.

She hopes to hear this song performed on June 19, when the new Miss Ohio is crowned.

It would also be the fitting end to a two-year period of transitions and adjustments for Legenza.

“I felt like I had unfinished business with this organization,” she said. “Winning would mean I achieved what I set out to accomplish,” she said, adding that with a victory in the state competition, “I would feel a sense of accomplishment because I know that I have something to give back to this program”.

The Miss Ohio pageants and her outstanding teenage pageants take place in Mansfield June 15-18. For more information on ordering Legenza pageants and to purchase pageant tickets, go to www.MissOhio.org

INTERGENERATIONAL DEBT AGREEMENT — It is common knowledge that many students take out loans every year to attend college in hopes of increasing their earning potential. What is less known is that their parents are too – and they don’t reap the benefits.

Parents who have taken out loans through the Parent PLUS Loan program are accepting “one of the riskiest federal student loan options.” according to an analysis by The Century Foundation. And though more than 3.7 million families owe more than $104 billion in federal student loans, they have been largely left out of talks about sweeping debt cancellation.

— Ten years after the start of parental repayments, 55% of the capital remains unpaid, said Peter Granville, author of the report and TCF senior policy associate, in an interview. “Many borrowers are treading water to cover month-to-month interest and, if possible, repay principal,” he said. “If you look 20 years from now, even then 38% of that principal remains unpaid.

“If you just do the math, that means for a lot of parents; they spend more time repaying these loans than the time they spent with their child at home raising them before going to college,” he said.

“Why were they left out?” Granville said this could be due to a lack of data. “Researchers have kind of felt in the dark when it comes to Parent PLUS because there’s very little data on these parents themselves,” he said, adding that there’s “a lot less knowledge about actual parents and their track record in taking out these loans.

– Granville’s report is based on new data released last year in the College Scorecard system that included new reimbursement data, including for Parent PLUS. This is the first deep dive into data, and the release of the report comes as President Joe Biden seeks to finalize his federal plans to cancel student loans. The report highlights the importance of extending any relief to parents with PLUS loans.

WHO DEFENDS PARENTS? — Last year, dozens of civil rights groups demanded in a letter that parents and other types of loans be included in any debt forgiveness plan. They called on the Biden administration to forgive $50,000 in student loans per borrower. The Education Trust, which signed the letter, is working on other reports on Parent PLUS programs and supports the recommendations of the TCF report, according to Brittani Williams, who leads the group’s work on student loan debt.

– Racial disparities are prevalent on the program, Williams said. “Particularly for low-income families, as well as Black and Latino families, parents disproportionately take Parent PLUS loans,” she added. “Because of this heavy use and the conditions that are put in place, it can be seen as adverse…and the conditions are really exacerbating the racial wealth gap.”

— Especially for black and Latino families, Williams said, the notion “that a college degree equates to upward mobility or upward economic status” still holds true, meaning they take on the loans with the belief that it will pay off. “Sometimes the truth is that mobility just isn’t there because of the burden of debt,” she said. “That’s why Ed Trust is asking for the cancellation.”

— Other problems to solve: Parents are excluded from key relief options, including income-contingent repayment and waiver of public service loan repayments, according to Persis Yu, policy director of the Student Borrower Protection Center. “They’ve been left out of so many different relief programs so far,” Yu said. debt.”

– “It’s so overwhelming that you now need intergenerational debt to be able to pay for college,” Yu said. “It puts a heavy burden on families who don’t have the wealth… and unlike student debt – at least in theory – this debt will not contribute to the increased earning potential of parents. And we know that’s not necessarily true for a lot of students either.

EXCLUSIVE: GROUPS URGE CARDONA TO ADOPT A WHOLE-CHILD STRATEGY FOR PANDEMIC RECOVERY – The Alliance for Learning and Development Science, along with 50 education and youth development organizations, sends a letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona outlining a recommended path for the recovery of Covid-19.

The public letter“Charting a path to Covid recovery for all young people,” explains “how to speed up recovery from Covid requires focusing on the whole child”. The groups call for three initial immediate actions:

— First: The groups say the Ministry of Education and education providers should commit to “embracing a common mindset” that it will take several years to recover. Recovery requires “a sequenced, comprehensive, focused, and flexible approach to meeting the academic, social, emotional, and health needs of young people.”

— Second: State and local educators and leaders need the “best information we have.” build on existing evidence and continually improve this information over time. The groups ask for consistent “practical and evidence-based guidance” for educators.

—Third: The groups say that revamping and aligning schools and other learning environments is crucial.

“DIFFICULT” MOMS — Today, Thousands of suburban women are expected to take part in the National Troublemaker Training, run by Red Wine & Blue, a Democratic-leaning group that has trained and connected nearly half a million suburban women. They train women and mothers to mobilize and organize their friends to “combat extremism – from book bans to government-mandated pregnancies to gun violence – and to hold extremist politicians accountable in November”.

— Training is also part of the group’s strategy Large turnout of troublemakersa new organizing campaign to urge women to “do more than vote in the 2022 midterm elections”, according to a press release. Moms Rising and local parent organizations will also participate in the launch event.

— Democratic Michigan State Senator Mallory McMorrow is expected to be part of the training alongside suburban moms from North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Red, Wine & Blue founder Katie Paris will also share announcements about the program and target states. Watch the training at 8 p.m.

PARENTS SUE SCHOOL FOR HIDING STUDENTS’ PRONOUNS — Alliance Defending Freedom, on behalf of a group of parents and teachers, is suing the Harrisonburg City Public School Board over its policy that requires staff to use pronouns that a student identifies with, but prohibits staff from sharing them with the parents.

— ADF, in a press release, accused the school board of “usurping the right of parents directing their children’s education and forcing school staff to violate their religious beliefs by asserting the board’s view of gender identity. He also said the policy instructed ‘staff to mislead and deceive parents’.

The trial, ADF v. Harrisonburg City Public School Boardwas filed in Rockingham County Circuit Court after sending a letter in January about the district’s gender transition action plans, which specify that students’ families should only be involved when deemed “appropriate,” the ADF said.

– “Parents – not public schools or government officials – have the fundamental right to direct the upbringing, care and upbringing of their children”, said ADF lead attorney Ryan Bangert. “Teachers and staff cannot deliberately hide information about children’s mental health from their parents, especially since some of the decisions children make at school have potentially life-altering ramifications.”
