WASHINGTON — Consumer spending has soared since the Great Recession ended five years ago in states with oil and gas drilling booms and has lagged in states hit especially hard by the housing bust.

The figures come from a new annual report the government issued yesterday that for the first time reveals consumer spending on a state-by-state basis. The numbers point to substantial shifts in the economy since the recession ended.

Spending jumped 28 percent in North Dakota, the largest gain nationwide, from 2009 through 2012, the latest year for which figures are available. It surged nearly 16 percent in Oklahoma.

By contrast, spending eked out a scant 3.5 percent increase in Nevada, the weakest for any state and far below the 10.7 percent national average. Arizona’s 6.2 percent increase was next-weakest. Home values plummeted in both states once the housing bust hit in 2006.

In Ohio, consumer spending over the three years rose 12.2 percent, above the national average, according to the report. The 3.7 percent increase in 2012 was slightly above the U.S...

By David Blackmon in Forbes 7/31/2014

The U.S. House of Representatives should be applauded this week for passage of HR 4315, the 21st Century Endangered Species Transparency Act.  As its title indicates, the bill is designed to require public transparency and real-time information related to proposed listings under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).  The reforms proposed in the bill would become the first changes to this archaic and much-abused federal statute in 26 long years...

In the Energy Collective 7/27/2014

Local officials in Erie, Colo., are pushing back hard against a national environmental group for misrepresenting the outcome of a failed “ban fracking” campaign in their town. The officials say the Massachusetts-based group has “ignored or misstated” the facts, including a number of scientific analyses posted on the town’s website, and they are demanding to know: “Why did you ignore this information?”

ALBANY — The devastating New York Times story on Gov. Cuomo’s political interference with his Moreland Commission panel’s investigation of public corruption pulled the veil from one of the biggest open secrets at the state Capitol: The governor is a liar and almost anything he promises will turn out to be false.

Cuomo’s betrayal of major pledges is well known: the promise to cut taxes in a meaningful way, encourage...
