Right hook?

I recently moved to Los Angeles after living in rural Sedona, AZ for 20 years. To say that I had to re-learn to drive all over again is an understatement!

I'm adjusting well for the most part but I'm still unclear about how to handle right turns across a bike lane when it is occupied by a bicycle. This happens almost every day. The letter of the law states I must "merge into the bike lane" before turning right.

Turning Across Bicycle Lane-21717. Whenever it is necessary for the driver of a motor vehicle to cross a bicycle lane that is adjacent to his lane of travel to make a turn, the driver shall drive the motor vehicle into the bicycle lane prior to making the turn and shall make the turn pursuant to Section 22100. Added Ch. 751, Stats. 1976. Effective January 1, 1977.

I've noticed even after using my right turn signal and merging on several occasions bicyclists have passed me on the right! I've had two near misses and I'd be apoplectic if I hit someone on a bike not to mention what my 2000 pound car would do to him. The first time was a night on very busy Venice Blvd! I was loudly cussed out by the bicyclist.

Who's got the right of way in this situation? Do I slow behind a bike for hundreds of feet before my turn? I've just made it a habit to check my right side mirror one more time just before I make my turn.

I also have difficulty with all the parallel parking on the road sides. The bikes have to get into the right car lane to get around them. I slow behind the bikes until I can safely pass only to get honked at by the people in cars behind me. I'm supposed to give the bikes three feet of space, right? Better to get honked at than hit my super healthy environmentally conscious fellow commuters.

I just want to do the right thing. Can the DU bicycling group offer some advice for this brand new Angelino?

Looking for (Verde Valley) Arizona ACA help (Verde Valley)

My 28 year old daughter is a single, childless nursing student and under the poverty line. She’s TOTALLY eligible and been approved for Medicaid expansion in Arizona. It is called Health E Arizona.

I don’t want to waste your time with a long history so we can suffice it to say we have been trying to get her on the Arizona Medicaid expansion since Oct 1 and have been hitting road blocks at every turn. Six months of web site troubles, 2-3 hour waits on hold on the phone are getting us nowhere. Even the wait at the rural area, in person center for ACA help has a line formed an hour before they open and a 2-3 hour her wait to see someone. They don’t accept appointments. Her school and work schedule do not allow this kind of wait for help. It seems as you say, the red states that actually took Medicaid expansion are deliberately gumming up the works. It is like voter suppression for health care!

Now she’s sick. She needs treatment NOW. She has no money for a doctor or prescriptions. Do you know anyone we can contact directly at Health E Arizona that can fast track her to get an ID card without endless waits on hold or in a predawn line at the office? Anyone in Arizona at all that might be able to help?

Thanks for reading

Has anyone had any luck signing up for Arizona Medicaid expansion?

I've determined I'm eligible, but when I click on the healthcare.org link to go to AZ site its a dead link.

Tried both Chrome and Explorer.

FYI Discharge Petition defined

House is debating it now on C-Span1

from Wikipedia
A discharge petition is a means of bringing a bill out of committee and to the floor for consideration without a report from the committee and usually without cooperation of the leadership. Discharge petitions are most often associated with the U.S. House of Representatives, though many state legislatures have similar procedures. They are used when the chair of a committee refuses to place a bill or resolution on the Committee's agenda; by never reporting a bill, the matter will never leave the committee and the full House will not be able to consider it. A successful petition "discharges" the committee from further consideration of a bill or resolution and brings it directly to the floor. The discharge petition, and the threat of one, gives more power to individual members of the House and usurps a small amount of power from the leadership and committee chairs. The modern discharge petition requires the signature of an absolute majority of House members (218 members). Only twice has it been used successfully on major legislation in recent history.

NAR Issue Brief What a Government Shutdown Means for REALTORS®

Source: National Association of Realtors

Congress has failed to approve a Continuing Resolution (CR) providing funding for most government operations. Therefore, spending authority for most of the government expired at midnight on September 30, 2013. Until legislation providing for funding is signed into law, many offices and programs of the federal government are now shut down. This means many, but not all, government programs, including some that impact federal housing and mortgage programs, have been suspended or slowed due to the lapse in government funding. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requires each agency to have contingency plans in place. The information below is based on NAR staff review of agency contingency plans for the current shutdown and past experience with previous shutdowns and near-shutdowns.

Federal Housing Administration HUD’s Contingency Plan states that FHA will endorse new loans in the Single Family Mortgage Loan Program, but it will not make new commitments in the Multi-family Program during the shutdown. FHA will maintain operational activities including paying claims and collecting premiums. Management & Marketing (M&M) Contractors managing the REO portfolio can continue to operate. You can expect some delays with FHA processing.

VA Loan Guaranty Program Lenders will continue to process and guaranty mortgages through the Loan Guaranty program in the event of a government shutdown. Expect some delays during the shutdown.

Flood Insurance The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confirmed that the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will not be impacted by a government shutdown, since NFIP is funded by premiums and not tax dollars. Changes to the flood insurance program scheduled to take effect on October 1 will be implemented as scheduled.
