So you're ok with those two drunk drivers continuing their journey...and possibly injuring or killing someone? All because you think these enforcement checks are a waste of time? Good thing you're not in public office.

Here's an idea: Tie in-state tuition at all state universities to the per-student expenditures in a student's district. Alternatively, make it inversely proportional to the percentage of district funding provided (on paper) by the state.

What a load of crap. Dick Durbin's support for the Big Government and crony-capitalist machine has taken money out of everyones' pockets and has forced many businesses to shut down or leave in order to remain profitable. Durbin is responsible for Obamacare and our skyrocketing insurance premiums. Everything that happens in Obamaland happens with Durbin's blessing. Durbin is responsible…

You are assuming the federal government moves quickly??? 10,000 PAX in CY2013 means FAA $$ in FY 2015 which starts Oct 1...but budgets don;t get approved that early and haven't for years (can you say "continuing resolution"?). After the budget gets approved they actually then have to write a check. So counting that money this year would be folly. Should be in next year's budget though…

Gardner Denver to pay $29 million to settle suit by former shareholders

Gardner Denver to pay $29 million to settle suit by former shareholders

1 month, 3 weeks ago Reuters

Shareholders sued Gardner Denver, its board and KKR, saying the sale price was too low

From Reuters:

Gardner Denver has agreed to pay $29 million to its former shareholders to settle allegations the industrial pumps producer was undervalued in its $3.7 billion sale last year to private equity firm KKR & Co, according to court documents.

The settlement, reached after two days of mediation in Chicago earlier this month, was filed on Friday in a Delaware court and must still be approved by a judge.

Shareholders sued Gardner Denver, its board and KKR, saying the sale price was too low.

The shareholders accused KKR of tainting the sale process by hiring Gardner Denver's former chief executive officer, Barry Pennypacker, shortly after he resigned in July 2012. KKR, the shareholders alleged, "improperly obtained confidential information from Pennypacker" that informed KKR's bid.

Lawsuits typically follow merger and acquisitions, but most of them are dismissed or settled for no additional money.

A spokeswoman for KKR said the firm does not comment on litigation.
