NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 202 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), hereby declare that the national emergency declared by Proclamation 9844, and continued on February 13, 2020 (85 Fed. Reg. 8715), and January 15, 2021, is terminated and that the authorities invoked in that proclamation will no longer be used to construct a wall at the southern border. I hereby further direct as follows:
(iii) compile detailed information on all southern border wall construction contracts, the completion status of each wall construction project, and the funds used for wall construction since February 15, 2019, including directly appropriated funds and funds drawn from the Treasury Forfeiture Fund (31 U.S.C. 9705(g)(4)(B)), the Department of Defense Drug Interdiction and Counter-Drug Activities account (10 U.S.C. 284), and the Department of Defense Military Construction account (pursuant to the emergency authorities in 10 U.S.C. 2808(a) and 33 U.S.C. 2293(a)).
In certain circumstances, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) using section 1135 of the Social Security Act (SSA) can temporarily modify or waive certain Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, or HIPAA requirements, called 1135 waivers. There are different kinds of 1135 waivers, including Medicare blanket waivers. When there's an emergency, sections 1135 or 1812(f) of the SSA allow us to issue blanket waivers to help beneficiaries access care. When a blanket waiver is issued, providers don't have to apply for an individual 1135 waiver. When there's an emergency, we can also offer health care providers other flexibilities to make sure Americans continue to have access to the health care they need.
Update: On Thursday, December 29, 2022, President Biden signed into law H.R. 2716, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) for Fiscal Year 2023. This legislation provides more than $1.7 trillion to fund various aspects of the federal government, including an extension of the major telehealth waivers and the Acute Hospital Care at Home (AHCaH) individual waiver that were initiated during the federal public health emergency (PHE).
Additionally, on January 30, 2023, the Biden Administration announced its intent to end the national emergency and public health emergency declarations on May 11, 2023, related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you're an entity in the declared emergency area, you can apply for an 1135 waiver. You'll usually hear back from us within 2-3 days, but if your request is more complicated, it may take up to a week. If your waiver request has 1 or 2 items, we may get back to you within 24 hours.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Kathy Hochul, Governor of the State of New York, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the Laws of the State of New York, hereby find, pursuant to Section 28 of Article 2-B of the Executive Law, that a disaster has occurred in New York State, for which the affected local governments are unable to respond adequately, and I do hereby declare a State disaster emergency for the entire State of New York through August 28, 2022; and
IN ADDITION, pursuant to Section 29 of Article 2-B of the Executive Law, I direct the implementation of the State Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan and authorize all necessary State agencies to take appropriate action to assist local governments and individuals in containing, preparing for, responding to and recovering from this State disaster emergency, to protect state and local property, and to provide such other assistance as is necessary to protect public health, welfare, and safety.
FURTHER, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 29-a of Article 2-B of the Executive Law to temporarily suspend or modify any statute, local law, ordinance, order, rule, or regulation, or parts thereof, of any agency during a State disaster emergency, if compliance with such statute, local law, ordinance, order, rule, or regulation would prevent, hinder, or delay action necessary to cope with the disaster emergency or if necessary to assist or aid in coping with such disaster, I hereby temporarily suspend or modify for the period from the date of this Executive Order through August 28, 2022 the following:
GAO analyzed relevant data and documentation and assessed FCC's efforts against leading government performance management practices and FEMA and FCC's efforts against internal control standards. GAO interviewed federal officials involved in emergency alerting. GAO also interviewed a non-generalizable selection of IPAWS alerting authorities and applicants, local governments, public safety and industry associations, and communications companies. GAO selected alerting authorities that experienced different types of disasters and threats to public safety from 2017 to 2019.
No other packaged emergency water compares to Puravai. Aluminum cans leak over time, steel cans rust, pouched water punctures, boxed water crushes, but the thick HDPE bottles are built to last for decades. Here are a few highlights:
HIGH DENSITY BOTTLES:The bottles are super thick!! They're built for the unpredictability of emergency situations. You can drop, scrape, or bump them, and your water stays protected.
PURAVAI is the purest prepackaged storage water in the emergency preparedness market. When it comes to emergency storage water, even one little bacterium in the water can multiply over time and become billions of bacteria. It's called CFUs (or Colony Forming Units of Bacteria). Tested independently by one of the top labs in the world, PURAVAI was tested which resulted in ZERO CFUs. That's a HUGE deal because that means your PURAVAI water remains safe to drink for decades!!
The bottles are BPA free, and made from HDPE which is the most safe plastic for food and beverages in the world, known to keep plastic chemicals from infiltrating your water supply. It's the same plastic used to make the big blue 55 gallon drums and the same plastic the US Military uses in their canteens. Yet, just like any other emergency storage water (including 55-gallon drums and canteens), don't store your bottles directly on concrete or near dangerous chemicals or fumes to avoid leaching and deterioration. Q: WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF PURAVAI EMERGENCY DRINKING WATER?

In 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its life safety and emergency preparedness regulations to improve protections for all Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, including those residing in long-term-care facilities (commonly referred to as nursing homes). Updates included requirements that nursing homes have expanded sprinkler systems and smoke detector coverage; an emergency preparedness plan that is reviewed, trained on, tested, and updated at least annually; and provisions for sheltering in place and evacuation.
Our objective was to determine whether selected nursing homes in Texas that received Medicare funds, Medicaid funds, or both, complied with Federal requirements for life safety and emergency preparedness.
During our onsite inspections, we identified deficiencies in areas related to life safety or emergency preparedness at 18 of the 20 nursing homes that we audited. Specifically, we found 235 deficiencies with life safety requirements related to building exits and smoke partitions, fire detection and suppression systems, hazardous storage areas, fire drills and smoking policies, and electrical equipment and elevator inspection and testing. We found 55 deficiencies with emergency preparedness requirements related to written emergency plans, emergency supplies and power, emergency communications plans, and emergency plan training. As a result, residents at the 18 nursing homes were at increased risk of injury or death during a fire or other emergency.
We recommend that Texas follow up with the 18 nursing homes to verify that corrective actions have been taken regarding the life safety and emergency preparedness deficiencies identified in this report.
If you're in your twenties and just beginning your financial journey, there are a few basics you might be working toward covering. An emergency fund is a very important foundational step when getting your finances in order.
However, you may be in your late twenties and have a higher salary or live in a more expensive city. Now let's say that your necessary expenses (rent or mortgage, food, utilities, Wi-Fi, transportation, medical costs, etc.) run you about $2,500 per month. A three-month emergency fund works out to be $7,500 and a six-month emergency fund adds up to $15,000.
To figure out how much you spend each month, you might want to go through your bank statements to find your monthly totals. Or, to reduce some of that hard work, you might use a budgeting app like Mint, which connects to all your financial accounts (checking account and credit cards included) and categorizes all your transactions. It'll give you a monthly summary of how much you've spent. This will pretty much expedite the process of figuring out how much to have in your emergency fund.
And even if you still live at home and don't have to pay for rent, Wi-Fi and/or food, you should still work on building your emergency fund. This will only help you feel more financially secure once you're ready to live on your own.
Like maybe you set a goal to increase your emergency fund by 5% each year. Or, perhaps you set up automatic transfers of $20 (or more, or whatever amount you're comfortable with) straight into your emergency account each week or each month. This way, you're saving money on autopilot and don't even to think how much money you can add to your emergency fund. 781b155fdc
