    The Obama administration’s proposed regulatory amendment regarding background checks for principal officers of gun trusts will still require a chief law enforcement officer sign-off, and the rule change itself was initiated by a petition from a group representing National Firearms Act gun collectors. That information comes from a draft Department of Justice notice made public this morning by firearms industry consulting attorney Joshua Prince. Gun Rights Examiner reported on the proposed regulation change last Friday, relying on the government’s summary as posted on the Executive Office of the President’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs website, which stated: The proposed...

    (Reuters) - The Internal Revenue Service has released new rules for investment income taxes on capital gains and dividends earned by high-income individuals that passed Congress as part of the 2010 healthcare reform law.

The tax affects only individuals with more than $200,000 in modified adjusted gross income (MAGI), and married couples filing jointly with more than $250,000 of MAGI. The tax applies to a broad range of...

    Signed by governor before many took notice, new law shrinks county's central committee from 54 to 30 VICTORVILLE — Recent changes in how San Bernardino County Republican Party Central Committee members are elected is drawing pointed criticism and concern from Republicans not informed of the changes until after they became law. A new law, sponsored by Assemblyman Russ Bogh, R-Yucaipa, and signed into law by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger shrinks the size of the county's Republican Central Committee from 54 to 30 members. And membership will be based on county supervisors' districts — not state Assembly Districts. "It substantially changes the...

    Yellow-flag finishes are all but finished in NASCAR. The sanctioning body said Thursday it will go to a green-white-checkered format, hoping all Nextel Cup and Busch series events will end with the cars racing. The new rule will take effect with the races July 24-25 at New Hampshire International Speedway. The truck series already has the rule in place. ``The green-white-checkered format is an attempt to achieve everyone's goals -- a green-flag finish,'' NASCAR president Mike Helton said. ``This change, hopefully, will provide competitive finishes in the relatively rare occasions it is warranted. ``This format has been successful in the...

    WASHINGTON -- A Bush administration overhaul of decades-old labor regulations could force many Americans to work longer hours without overtime pay. The administration argues that the pillars of American labor law, which established the 40-hour work week, a minimum wage and overtime pay, are antiquated. The changes, Labor Department officials say, would make more lower-income workers eligible for overtime. But labor unions fear changes would severely restrict who is legally required to be paid for overtime work.
