In most states, the most effective 鈥 and often only 鈥 option for residents to resolve open government disputes is to sue. The news agencies and CNHI鈥檚 50-state review uncovered a patchwork of systems for resolving open government disputes. Some states, like Arizona and Indiana, have offices that can review residents鈥 complaints but can鈥檛 compel agencies to comply with their findings. Others give their attorneys general authority to issue opinions or take matters to court, though experts say they rarely pursue litigation or prosecution. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 one of the real challenges with any of these laws is that even when they have enforcement tools built in, civil liability or criminal liability, that they are so rarely enforced,鈥 said鈥Chip Stewart, media law professor.

The main reason for that is that everyone is entitled to their base level of a deduction 鈥 things like your mortgage interest, those charitable contributions given to your church and state property taxes, that are nowhere near $27,000-$28,000, you probably don鈥檛 have a very complicated return.鈥

Several Tarrant County Republican primary contests echoed statewide results, shifting local political power farther to the right and toward political action committees that poured money into the races.

Paxton and Abbott鈥檚 names were not on the ballot, and while they were prominent in ads, orchestrating campaign contributions, I think we鈥檇 be remiss to think that their influence could be separated from the influence of Donald Trump,鈥 Riddlesperger said.鈥

The number of active oil rigs in the U.S. has declined by nearly 70% since 2014, while our production continues to break records. The oil industry used to set up rigs in places where there might be oil, drill straight in and hope for the best. But there have been some important technological developments in the last few decades. Among them, horizontal drilling, said鈥Tom Seng, assistant professor of professional practice. 鈥淲hen you drill horizontally, you鈥檙e kind of passing through, let's call it the meat of the oil field there, the pay zone.鈥 And because those horizontal wells can extend 10,000 feet or more, Seng said, they reach much more oil than vertical wells. He also says digital sensors and imaging technology help companies locate oil reserves faster. 鈥淭he drilling engineer is literally moving these drill bits based on real-time information that the operator is receiving,鈥 he said.

The number of Democrats who voted early in the Texas presidential primaries has dramatically fallen compared to 2020 in the latest sign of a lack of enthusiasm for Joe Biden鈥檚 re-election bid. There were 200,000 fewer Texans who opted to cast their ballots early in the primary races, with in-person voting taking place on Super Tuesday. James Riddlesperger, political science professor, suggested the low early voting turnout in Texas could be down to the 鈥渞elatively low-high profile and high-conflict races鈥 in the state this year. 鈥淣ormally we have at least one interesting presidential primary and normally in off years we have the statewide officials like the governor and lieutenant governor on the ballot,鈥 Riddlesperger told NBCDFW: 鈥淏ut this year, we only have the one statewide race of note 鈥 and that鈥檚 the Senate race.鈥

Every year, the average U.S. household pays nearly $11,000 in federal income taxes. And while we鈥檙e all faced with that same obligation, there is significant difference when it comes to state and local taxes. According to鈥Stephen J. Lusch, associate professor of accounting, not everyone places the same value on certain services and what services someone values could change over their lifetime. For example, a family with young children might be very focused on school quality and thus are willing to pay higher property taxes if the schools are high quality. On the other hand, a couple whose children have graduated from high school and are now out of the house may not put as much emphasis on school quality.
