While 665 businesses have applied for the legislature’s $60.5 million COVID-19 grant program for struggling small businesses, only 66 of them represent the industries hit hardest by shutdowns aimed at slowing the spread of coronavirus.

The Job Retention Grant program, which had a Sept. 1 application deadline, requires grant recipients to have kept at least 90% of employees through the early months of the pandemic — a requirement that knocks out many shuttered restaurants, bars and entertainment venues that were forced to close and lay off employees.

Legislative leaders said the 90% requirement was based on similar rules for the federal Paycheck Protection Program, and removing it would result in legal challenges. In general, government is prohibited from handing out money to private businesses without some strings attached.

“If the General Assembly were to create a

The “minor surge” in cases emerged when seven cases were confirmed on Wednesday, followed by another seven new cases on Thursday, Select Board Chairwoman Dawn Hill Holdgate wrote in a statement Friday. 

The new results brought the total number of cases on the island to 77, as of Thursday. 

“These are the highest number of cases in a short period of time that we have so far seen in Nantucket,” Holdgate wrote. “While this is not an unanticipated situation, due to the nature of the coronavirus, we can expect episodic growth in the number of cases over the next 10-14 days.”

In a joint statement and video appearance, Gary Shaw, president and CEO of the Nantucket Cottage Hospital,

Your Funds: How to think when a favorite stock is in the news | Column

Still, it’s hard to ignore that ExxonMobil has been choking amid the mostly strong market conditions of the past decade. Shares trading for more than $100 six years ago sell for less than $50 today.

Even factoring dividends and total return into the picture, ExxonMobil has badly lagged the Dow; the annualized average spread is more than 20 percentage points.

That said, if history is a precursor, being dumped by the Dow is good news for Exxon-Mobil shareholders. Several studies have shown that issues kicked out of the major indices outperform the stocks that replace them.

The last time three stocks were swapped out of the Dow was when Bank of America, Hewlett-Packard and Alcoa were dropped for Goldman Sachs, Visa and Nike. While the replacements had nice gains in their first year in the Dow, the vanquished stocks were rock stars; BofA gained 18%, HP jumped 72% and Alcoa

Solving Risk Puzzles in a Complex World

Insurance professionals in the surplus lines sector are busy. Busy adapting to a changing business world during COVID-19. Busy adapting to a changing property/casualty market where standard lines insurers are steadfastly shedding undesirable accounts. Busy adapting to a market that is increasingly digital. And busy multiplying their numbers of accounts and premium volume.

While many U.S. businesses continue to lag, the surplus lines insurance industry is experiencing significant growth.

The flow of business into the surplus lines channel is up 20% or more over last year, according to Timothy Turner, chairman and CEO of RT Specialty, Ryan Specialty Group’s wholesale brokerage operation.

That increase comes after a similar 20% jump in 2019, he said.

“It’s doubling. It’s a multiplier effect now,” Turner said.

Surplus lines premium reported to the U.S. surplus lines stamping offices in the first six months of 2020 neared $20 billion more than the first six months

Gavin Newsom backs ‘split roll’ initiative to raise property tax on businesses

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday endorsed a ballot measure to increase property taxes for large businesses, arguing it will bring needed revenue to schools and local governments.

The so-called ‘split roll’ measure, Proposition 15, would change a 1978 law that bases California property taxes on purchase value. If voters pass the initiative in November, business owners with more than $3 million in commercial property would be taxed on current value. That would raise property taxes for many businesses.

The ballot initiative would not change property tax assessments for homeowners. It’s projected to raise billions of dollars a year in tax revenue for schools and other government services.

“It’s a fair, phased-in and long-overdue reform to state tax policy,” Newsom said in a written statement. “It’s consistent with California’s progressive fiscal values.”

Business groups opposing the measure argue a tax hike will stifle California’s economic recovery from the coronavirus-caused
