The same financial assistance monies that flow to licensed foster families are not being paid to relative foster families, despite an appeals court ruling three years ago that mandated that they should be, attorneys for the families allege. The ruling by the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017 applied to states like Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio. The Buckeye state is the only one that hasn’t complied, said attorneys representing the families. “That’s what this click now suit is about. Ohio is not following the law, (it) has not made these payments to the relatives on behalf of the child,” attorney Richard Dawahare told 10 Investigates this week. Dawahare and several other attorneys representing the interests of the families filed the suit last week in U.S. District Court. Dawahare said he is not sure why the state of Ohio has failed to make the payments, or what is the explanation. “Every day that goes by, those children suffer because they don’t get everything that they truly need, especially at the most critical time of their lives.


“The technical groundwork has been laid down for OPEC+ to postpone a tapering of its output cuts,” said Harry Tchilinguirian, head of commodity markets strategy at BNP Paribas SA. “Now the political groundwork needs to be put in place.” The two leading members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak and Saudi Energy Minister Abdulaziz bin Salman, requested an informal video conference with their counterparts from the Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee, which includes Algeria, Kazakhstan, Iraq, Nigeria and the UAE, according to a letter seen by Bloomberg. The unscheduled gathering comes just two days before a full OPEC ministerial meeting on Nov. 30, before allies join talks on Dec. 1. The JMMC met online as recently as Nov. 17, but that ended without any kind of recommendation about delaying the January supply increase. The 23-nation network known as OPEC+ made vast production cuts during the depths of the pandemic to offset a historic collapse in fuel demand. The alliance had planned to ease some of the curbs at the start of 2021 in anticipation of a global economic recovery, reviving about 1.9 million barrels a day of halted output, having managed a similar resumption over the summer.
