Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Rule Change Grounds Ohio Pension Plan Officials
An Ohio panel wants to ground those who oversee the state’s pension plans.
State officials were frustrated by two board members of the School Employees Retirement System insisting that they travel to Hawaii for a conference. So a rules committee voted Monday that no retirement system employee can be reimbursed for travel from now on.
The state House is scheduled to vote on it Tuesday, and the Senate on Wednesday.
The rule change was a rare action by the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review.
Lawmakers and the state oversight committee have repeatedly criticized the Hawaii trip and urged the pension fund board to change its travel policy.
