U.S. citizens are advised to adhere to restrictions on U.S. government employee travel. State-specific restrictions are included in the individual state advisories below. U.S. government employees may not travel between cities after dark, may not hail taxis on the street, and must rely on dispatched vehicles, including app-based services like Uber, and regulated taxi stands. U.S. government employees should avoid traveling alone, especially in remote areas. U.S. government employees may not drive from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior parts of Mexico, except daytime travel within Baja California and between Nogales and Hermosillo on Mexican Federal Highway 15D, and between Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey on Highway 85D.
There are no other travel restrictions for U.S. government employees in Baja California state. These include high-traffic tourism areas of border and coastal communities, such as Tijuana, Ensenada, and Rosarito.
Gang violence, often associated with the theft of petroleum and natural gas from the state oil company and other suppliers, occurs in Guanajuato, primarily in the south and central areas of the state. Of particular concern is the high number of murders in the southern region of the state associated with cartel-related violence. U.S. citizens and LPRs have been victims of kidnapping.
There are no other restrictions on travel for U.S. government employees in Guanajuato state, which includes tourist areas in: San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato City, and surrounding areas.
Violent crime and gang activity are common in parts of Jalisco state. In Guadalajara, territorial battles between criminal groups take place in tourist areas. Shooting incidents between criminal groups have injured or killed innocent bystanders. U.S. citizens and LPRs have been victims of kidnapping.
There are no other restrictions on travel for U.S government employees in Jalisco state which includes tourist areas in: Guadalajara Metropolitan Area, Puerto Vallarta (including neighboring Riviera Nayarit), Chapala, and Ajijic.

Heavily armed members of criminal groups often patrol areas of the state and operate with impunity particularly along the border region from Reynosa to Nuevo Laredo. In these areas, local law enforcement has limited capacity to respond to incidents of crime. Law enforcement capacity is greater in the tri-city area of Tampico, Ciudad Madero, and Altamira, which has a lower rate of violent criminal activity compared to the rest of the state.

Klobuchar and Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) have also introduced the bipartisan Stop Foreign Donations Affecting Our Elections Act to strengthen disclosure by requiring federal campaigns to use existing credit card verification protocols to help verify that online credit card donations come from U.S. sources. In June, Klobuchar introduced the Helping State and Local Governments Prevent Cyber Attacks Act to help combat foreign interference by providing state and local governments with the information and resources they need to keep our elections secure and improve voter confidence.
OUTREACH GOAL - The MSU-CREC economics online outreach programs provide various clientele groups with basic and advanced tools and information involving relevant economic issues in coastal areas, the entire state, the Gulf of Mexico region, and beyond.
The Pennsylvania Bulletin Online includes the following: Statewide and local court rules; the Governor's Proclamations and Executive Orders; Actions by the General Assembly; Rulemakings by State agencies; Proposed Rulemakings by State agencies; and State agency notices.
The Pennsylvania Constitution is the foundation of our state government. Our first Constitution was adopted in 1776 and was a framework for the U.S. Constitution, which did not take effect until 1789.

The California-based digital revolution also spawned immense technology corporations such as Facebook and Apple. And, of course, its state government, which disburses upwards of $300 billion a year, is second only to the federal government in size.
The syndrome will continue to plague the state unless its leaders stop being enablers, refuse demands for handouts and bailouts and force big institutions to face the consequences of their irresponsible acts.
Data security is not generally prescribed by law for the information technology sector. Instead, companies make IT security investments as part of managing corporate risk. Mitigating this risk may be material to their investors or beneficial to their users. In the U.S. system, privacy rules are in place to ensure privacy of an individual from the government. However, privacy of individuals from other entities (e.g., other individuals or corporations) is a matter of state law and private agreements (e.g., contracts). This places a higher burden on individuals to understand the risk of generating and sharing data, as well as reviewing and understanding individual agreements with different services with which they engage.
In considering legislative options, Congress could also consider granting regulatory authority to a federal agency or agencies, or it could create a new federal entity to regulate companies. It appears that agencies do not currently have authority to regulate the data security at social media companies. Instead, data security may be enforced at a company pursuant to a consent order with the FTC after an unfair or deceptive practice investigation.
If Congress were to grant regulatory authority to a federal agency or agencies, agency action would probably fit into a three-step framework. First, an authorized entity creates the regulation which industry must follow. This is also called rulemaking. Next, an agency could examine or supervise for compliance with the regulation. If a company is found to be not in compliance with the regulation, the agency could enforce the regulation (e.g., suing the company or issuing a fine). Congress may grant authority to different agencies for each step in this framework.
StreamStats provides estimates of streamflow statistics for user-selected sites by solving regression equations. These equations were developed through a process known as regionalization, in which regression analysis is used to relate streamflow statistics computed for a group of selected streamgages (usually within a State) to basin characteristics measured for the streamgages. Basin characteristics measured for ungaged sites can be entered into the resulting equations to obtain estimates of the streamflow statistics. Regression equations usually are applicable to an area that is coincident with the borders of a state, or to subregions within a state. That is because studies to develop the equations most commonly have been done through a cooperative funding mechanism whereby individual state agencies partner with the USGS to fund at least half of the cost for the study.
Each state has an introductory page that identifies the streamflow statistics that can be estimated by use of regression equations, provides citations for the reports that contain the regression equations and special notes, if any, about use of StreamStats for that state, and identities of the agencies that cooperated with the USGS to implement the state. You should read the cited reports to understand how StreamStats provides estimates of flows for data-collection stations and ungaged sites in the state. When you select a state in the StreamStats version 4 user interface a black circle with an \"i\" will appear beside the name of the state. Click on the circle to see the introductory page for that state. The introductory pages also can be accessed in version 4 by clicking on the About link above the map and then on the page that will subsequently appear, click on the State/Regional Info tab. 1e1e36bf2d
