State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles

"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?

"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

Climate-friendly jobs for unemployed oil and gas workers

"An oil or gas well can keep releasing pollution long after its retired from use. When an oil and gas company walks away from a well that had been producing and does not plug it. In those can impose heavy environmental and climate costs. That's jason bard off director of the center on global energy policy at columbia university. He co authored. A recent report on inactive unplugged wells. The can leak methane which is a potent greenhouse gas into the air as well as other harmful air pollutants according to the epa. There are more than two million unplugged inactive wells in the united states board off says that together they emit as much carbon pollution as two million passenger vehicles per year. President biden has pledged to a program to plug many of these inactive. Wells boorda says this approach could create employment for oil and gas workers who lost jobs during the coronavirus pandemic. many workers have lost their jobs and are struggling and if they have a skill set that can be used to help the environment by plugging these wells. That can be dual. You're putting people back to work in a period of high unemployment until the economy is back on its feet and you're providing an environmental benefit.

In a mammoth's molar, scientists get a glimpse of evolution in action

"Would have no more surprises. Well, the world's oldest DNA's samples say otherwise, to mammoth molars pulled from the permafrost in north eastern Siberia contained didna dating back to more than a million years ago. It's a big leap backwards in time that that's which was Luca Dillon is at the center for Paleo Genetics in Stockholm. And he says this mammoth DNI is twice as old as the previous record holder, which came from an ancient horse now sequencing million year old knee like this was impossible just a few years ago samples that old were just too small to work with. Now, researchers can see incredibly small samples, but it's challenging to put them together. Tom Vander Vault also works with the center for Paleo Genetics. Imagine if you're Edna is fragment that into literally millions of tiny pieces. It is a painstaking puzzle. It's not only one parcel, it's actually multiple parcels. So imagine you know you have one parcel for the malice genome. But then you have another parcel for the whole bacterial content of the examples. You have another possible for the human Dina for the paleontologists and us in the lab. Once they had finished sorting out the mammoth bits. The DNI gave the scientists a unique window into mammoth evolution. Delenn says the standard view holds there was only one mammoth species in Siberia a couple million years ago. What we find now is that actually we found two different lineages. We can't really say there are different species, but they're clearly two different genetic types of malice so that that came as a complete surprise to us. The ancient DNI. A also gives clues the origins of the Columbian mammoth, which lived in North and Central America. Here's Tom Vander Volk again Good kind of show that this Columbia moment is a hybrid species between two off the genetic lineages. So one is the new general image that we found in this paper. And the other is the Willie Mama genetic limit, So to say their work appears today in the journal Nature. Alfred Rocca of the University of Illinois at Havana. Champagne wasn't involved in the work, but wrote on accompanying editorial. It's an absolutely amazing discovery. It takes back the field of ancient DNA's a Twice a Zafar in geological time as before, and that genetic puzzling unlocks the possibility. He says that we may soon find more evolutionary play by plays hiding in super Old DKNY.

"Can a former president be held liable through civil suits or criminal prosecution for the kinds of acts we saw leading up January 6th. Well, certainly, if the if the facts bear it out. The president has no the former president's gnome or immunity. Well, let's talk through the facts as we know them, Then can what? What criminal proceedings or civil proceedings could you imagine arising out of January 6 where the president for months Uh, claimed falsely that there was a stolen election and then people write it in a number of people were killed. Well, I think the uh, district attorney in the District of Columbia probably not the federal government. But D C government eyes very likely investigating the possibility of bringing criminal charges, The most obvious one would be criminal incitement. That's going to present some of the same problems of proof off Donald Trump's intent that were problematic during the impeachment. But what's going to be different is that the D A is going to be able to subpoena witnesses? On doing much more careful and extensive job of finding out all the evidence on that it's still going to be an uphill fight for a criminal conviction. On the other hand, people injured in the riot will almost certainly be bringing civil claims. Now. These would be very similar and substance to the criminal claims. But the standard of proof is going to is much lower that instead of having to prove All the elements of the crime, including intent beyond a reasonable doubt.

I have so many questions About kind of what you all have seen so far but first jazzman How do you include that d. i. lens as somebody who's on the agency side and also trying to you know achieve more equity in the greater world. Yeah i. I'm just so to be part of this conversation and hearing from jason gabby amongst inspiring folks so I think as an account manager really partnering with clients and but also partnering with leadership in how we infused diversity equity inclusion not just from an internal perspective but so that emanates within How we partner with clients We just ensuring that yes. We're being responsible and that brands are being responsible but also Figuring out how what we can do to not just check the box like abbie said but actually make tangible change. And so i think for me personally. It's just something that i've always been about which led me to Being part of the in her shoes movement A nonprofit base-year l. a. And so i have this unique Intersection where i get to see What does social impact look like from grassroots Point of view but then also in my day job like how.

Indoor Dining Returns in New York

"Right a big day for pandemic street stricken restaurants in New York because a ban on indoor dining is being partially lifted. Hundreds of restaurants have gone out of business in the past year. Others Barely afloat. But as Tom Brooke reports the move to bring back indoor dining or being on a limited basis, it's not being welcomed by everyone. Chicken sizzles on a grill at Friedman's restaurant on New York's Upper West Side, the establishment is alive. But much of the restaurant industry in the city is moribund from Grand Eater is like the Gotham Bar and Grill, which may reopen to the more ordinary nearby Good stuff, Diner. More than 1000 restaurants have closed fallen victim to covert 19 so start indoor dining on Friday. 25% Governor Cuomo's decision this week to lift the ban on indoor dining up to 25% of capacity is seen as a bit of a lifesaver. Jonah Phillips is the owner of Friedman's restaurant group. We're excited, too. Get our guests back in the restaurant. I think something that we've lost. Is that excitement and energy that you felt when you walked to a restaurant that had guests, innit, eating and drinking and dining. It's fun without indoor dining restaurants in the city have relied on take out and delivery service to stay in business. They've also resorted to extraordinary steps to make outdoor dining and freezing temperatures feasible in some instances, creating huge bubble light structures protecting diners, AFIS it outdoors and eat. Some won't be eating indoors anytime soon, Even though Governor Cuomo has decreed they now can, among them. New Yorker Claire Wachtel, who were sipping tea is an outdoor space belonging to Friedman's on 72nd Street. I won't go into an indoor dining Until this is all over because I think you're relatively safe if you're outside, But if you're in the dining area, it's I'd be too scared to do it. Even the rescue workers are now eligible to get vaccinated and restaurants have implemented numerous safety measures. Some health experts caution that the return to indoor dining is premature. Go out to dinner. CASS is from Columbia University Medical Center opening Internet now, at least to me, while we're just first getting to the point of controlling the spread of this virus Does not seem like the right next step. While mindful off health concerns getting restaurants to flourish economically. It's what Andrew Ritchie from the New York City hospitality alliance really wants to him. That's the priority over the past year. We've lost more than 140,000 jobs in New York City's restaurant industry and indoor dining has been opened up throughout the rest of New York state at 50% indoor occupancy since June. Partial lifting of the indoor dining band is precarious. With infection rates increased. Governor Cuomo has stated it may be reimposed those still working in the hospitality business. No, it's going to be a long, hard slog before the restaurant industry in New York returns to anything like normal. Nikki Joyce is a waitress at tea and sympathy. A much loved British comfort food eatery in the city. Will it get back to where it wasp where you have people, you know, shoulder to shoulder for deeper bars. I just can't see. Unfortunately and sad, but I don't see that happening any time soon. Fervent hope is that Governor Cuomo's partial lifting of the indoor dining band this week will mark the start of the long road back. Away in New York once again boast, but it's home to one of the most lively on fairy restaurant scenes in the world. There you

Nearly in muscle mass. Yeah absolutely especially on these longer. Trips rate for two weeks it's Pretty significant so our guys. You guys pickup three meals a day like i said you'd typically only running to but i supplement with a bunch of other stuff and quite often too. I know hunting. People don't want to stop in the middle day making me all right. We'll get breakfast before first light and then we come back to camp after dark and we make dinner at that point right so we we kind of leave the day free and then everything's kinda snacky type stuff throughout the day. How yeah. That's what i've heard most guys are doing. Is they'll do like a solid breakfast. They'll prepare some snacks that they can eat along away. So like the honey. Stinger is a protein bars. Of course the the electrolytes somewhere in there. I highly recommend making some trail mix. And i do in like the new way so i grab whatever kind of nuts i want and grab handfuls of freeze dried fruit. So i'll do some strawberries simply various impeaches or apples. Like whatever mixture i want. And they're freeze dried not dehydrated. Yeah yeah yeah you guys on as option i suppose. Okay yeah you bet so. It's lighter again. you're not carrying that. Extra water weight has more nutrition at has more flavor and taste to it a little bit of a crunch. That's really freeze. Dried stuff is nuts. Shelf life began. You're getting like years you can.

And then they have quite a few preservatives. and so if you've lived off of 'em emory's for any indefinite time you can probably vet that. It doesn't agree with you with your system for a long-term as a long-term solution which is it's good to. It's good to have on hand. They're fun because they're already rehydrated I just wouldn't put all my chips into murray's if i if i had a choice so yeah but we do carry them are as to is. It is an option they. They're a wet pack so they already have the full moisture content and then they have the full weight of meal ready to eat so. This isn't a back country solution per se. It's more a logistical the military logistical team. That can support it and they have the weight they can carry it. but it's not really a lightweight. Great dilution for multi backpack experience. If you're going camping with your buddies and you're driving into base count have her like she'll take a case no problem but if you're gonna hike to the top of the mountain with all the ways strap on your back for ten or fourteen days No mr or not your best bad guys offer that as an option for somebody like for emergency preparedness is that the primary sale point for that or is there other solutions you offer for emory's are pretty split between the two Between preparedness and outdoor a lot of the guys that are going out for like a one day. I'm just gonna go chase them. Deer type adventure. They're happy to grab an ari and then a lot of people i'm for emergency preparedness the ones we carry have a seven year shelf life so again the more moisture. That's in it.

That should be. It's a waffle waffle. Okay so then. The other brand is is heather's choice so choices really good at their breakfast. What i like in what they've done is they've made the pouches really small so if you're trying to optimize your space it's really easy to get a whole bunch of those breakfasts in there because the packaging is so small and there are really dense. More of a healthy spin on a breakfast. A hot breakfast chia and different seeds and things like that and they are gluten free so if people have dietary problems or sensitivities heather's choices are really safe brand to go with and then she also has parents. Which are i. Keep them around the house. They're the kind of looked like basically the size of a biscuit. And there's a whole bunch of different flavors and they are so yummy but they don't spike your insulin and your your sugar levels. Let your dizzy. It's a slow burn. It's based on like a coconut kind of fat based foundation so it's it's sustainable energy and when we go hiking i definitely throw some of those my pack cool so i've used had choice in like product is well now one of the things maybe touch on a little bit shelf-life though you buy amount host. It's good for twenty years so if you buy one. That's fresh off the seventy line at maybe. I'm exaggerating but you can talk to that. But then you buy. Heather's voices that technology for their in that it's not free because some of the choices only good for era two-day shelf life is significantly lowered which to be encouraging in some ways.

Giving sources the power to tell their own stories

"Breeding is the deputy director of the global reporting center. The center has recently produced documentary series for pbs. Newshour called turning points which uses the empowerment journalism model. Britney's here to talk to us about that series and explain exactly what is empowerment journalism. Welcome to the podcast brittany. Thanks so britney you said before we turn to the that you had. You've heard our podcast and so you kinda know how we start out things. Could you tell us a little bit about how you got involved in journalism and how you ended up at the global reporting center so i think you're probably the first person asked me how i've gotten into journalism since my first day of journalism school but sometimes when i think back on it i'm not even sure how i ended up here but what i think happened was i graduated from undergrad with an english degree in fine arts degree and i was sure that i was going to be a teacher though. I moved to south korea just to sort of try it out and see what it was like to work as a teacher. I was teaching english as a second language. But in a funny way. I sort of missed being a student. I love reading and writing and losing myself in research and so i started to think really hard about what kind of career would lead me to new discoveries into an opportunity to spend more of my life learning and i think that that's really what led need to journalism and so i moved back to canada and enrolled in a master's degree at the university of british columbia. And they have this incredible program that was formerly known as the international reporting program is now known as the global reporting program and that really drew my attention and it gives you a chance to spend a full year working on enterprise investigative work of international journalism. And my year. We were lucky enough to travel to china to report on the emerging environmental movement. And it was just this amazing opportunity to really dig in and learn and after i graduated from my masters a new that daily news was not going to be my thing. I wanted to be somewhere where that freedom to explore a story to stay with it. And i know that those jobs are also a few and far in between but at the time one of our professors at u c was just starting to build a global reporting center and an adviser at the school had recommended me when our director. Peter klein was looking for someone to help out part time so i started working with him in twenty fourteen. Just right after graduating. And i was working part. Time will working some other jobs and just trying to fill out that full time schedule. Then when we launched in two thousand sixteen we had a lot of momentum. And so yeah. I've been with the goal reporting center basically ever since i graduated from a masters. And it's been a really wonderful opportunity in place to work because peter in the team are always willing to listen to new ideas and new projects in there's this openness to experimentation and i even working now with the golden pudding program as their multimedia producer so in some ways. My story is a bit full circle. Because i have both that career that allows me to discover learn but also one where i'm getting to work with students and help them grow in home their skill. So yeah it's been really great. And i i feel like i'm really lucky to have found myself where i am. We have peter klein on the podcast. A couple of years ago. And i remember having a really great conversation with him and he reached out to us about a month ago and said. Hey you should talk to the people about the turning points program that's being produced with pbs newshour. You know this is something interesting something different and had a chance to check out some of the The videos that you guys have produced for that project and it's really really powerful so before we get into that just could you explain what is the mission of the global reporting center. What are the types of stories that it does. Yeah of course so. We thought a lot about this. And i think i mean are small mandate are sort of one liner is global journalism done differently and then when you expand that in what that means split into three distinct areas so the first being the focus on collaboration so we work with journalists from around the world we work with a variety of media partners with researchers and scholars which we're lucky based on our position at the university to sort of have this wealth of scholarship around us an even now at this turning point project working roy subjects we. We don't generally work with fixers. We use journalists partners. So collaboration is really at the heart of what we do. And i think that that sort of sets us apart a little bit because you know. Journalism has been shifting for a long time towards less competitiveness. More sort of working together in this idea that we tell better stories when we're not silent off in working together in that something that we really take to heart and then the other sort of areas that set us apart. Are that experimentation innovation sort of area where we try to do our journalism in different ways. Were open to new methods and new methods. Don't always work out. Sometimes they fail and for us. That's okay because we just want to be able to experiment and try new things and see what works in take those pieces that are successful in and bring them to a new stage in the last focuses on our education avenue so on global reporting program and bringing on students every year to work with us when we have big projects in production like turning points. We like to give students opportunities to work on projects in meaningful ways and allow them in on the production process so that they really get that experience when they're going out into the world they have these pieces that you know they can point to and say that they worked on okay so now is a fair to assume that the the turning points is a collaboration that you're doing with the pbs newshour partnership with pbs newshour. We originally didn't bring on a media partner at the beginning and there were a couple of reasons why we didn't do that. I because we weren't really sure. This method is going to work empowerment journal. The model was very new to us. And so we wanted to make sure that we had that freedom and adaptability to sort of shift change and potentially fail if it was going to fail and so we didn't bring on a partner from the very beginning. We've actually been working on this project since two thousand sixteen

Giving to Create a Legacy

"When we talk about legacy planning. We're talking about you. Typically for our clients that are independent. they're financially independent. Maybe reach the financial transcendent stage. They're talking about giving the talking about making significant gifts to family or to charity. And that's what i mean by legacy doing something to provide for others. that goes well beyond beyond our lifetime. Okay so if i am making a gift some to someone My child or in my case You know i've got a couple of grandkids. Now and i wanna give a gift to grandchild. Is that taxable to the person receiving the gift in other words. Am i going to be setting my grandchild up to have to pay taxes and not necessarily know just like if you give them a birthday present their taxed on that that gift and if you're giving them significant let's they're not necessarily taxed on that on that gift so that's a simple answer. Okay all right. Well i i know that if uncle sam head his way he might wanna show up at birthday parties and start taxing gasoline difficulty. Just just saying the attitude. He's got right now anyway. What about the person making the gift. I is there any ramifications for me if i'm if i'm gonna give a large gift like that that that's where this guy gets a little complex so possibly if the gift is large enough and i and i just want to briefly give some some basic tax concepts and some rules around that not to more people but tax planning is part of financial so we need to talk about it. The basics earned income meaning wages taxable as regular income and so his income from investments like dividends and interest. I think most of our listeners know that. And if you sell an asset that you've owned for longer than twelve months for for a gain you you've realized a long term capital gain and that gain is taxed at capital gains rates which can be lower than tax rates on on regular income. That's just the basics for larger estates and here. I'm talking about very large estates currently in excess of a million. I'm sorry eleven million. Five hundred and eighty thousand dollars for an individual and twenty three million one hundred and sixty thousand for a married couple for states in gifts in excess of that amount of the federal government is going to taxed tax the giver at forty percent well for large estates. The tax could be very significant in here. I think this is really a transfer tax not necessarily tax only a death because you're making very very large gifts that exceeds those limits. Eleven eleven million five hundred and twenty three million one hundred sixty thousand. Those are also taxed to the to the person giving not to the receiver of those assets and then another. There's another level of tax at least in seventeen states plus the district of columbia. They're going to also levy a transfer tax estate tax for example in massachusetts we haven't attacked exemption of a million dollars per person and thereafter estates are taxed at point eight percent all the way up to point all the way up to sixteen percent. Taxes can be part of the conversation and and the and the planning so back to gifting. The federal tax law says an individual can gift fifteen thousand dollars to an individual per year. You can give to your grandchild. Fifteen thousand dollars in your wife can give to your grandchild thousand dollars oak. We call this. The annual exclusion anything in excess of fifteen thousand dollars is counted against your federal lifetime. Exemption which is it which we just described that eleven million five hundred and eight thousand dollars and that so it's counted against your lifetime exemption and attacks form that discloses that gift is required if it's if it's a gift of fifteen thousand dollars or less there's no tax form if there's a gift in excess of fifteen thousand dollars per person per year calendar year then there's a form that needs to be sent to the irs. That doesn't necessarily attacks do you. And your wife give gift your daughter. Thirty thousand dollars in a calendar year. No tax forms required. But if you give her forty thousand dollars you'll need to file a gift tax form disclosing a ten thousand dollar taxable gift. Now your lifetime. Exemption is reduced by ten thousand dollars. There's no tax do over. But now you've your lifetime transfer exemption amount is is a little bit less okay a little bit more detail than you might want but it's an important nation. Yeah that's perfect. Because i think that's a huge in planning for people that can afford it. Peter i'll be honest. I'm not in this category yet right. i'm not gonna. i'm not worried about going over that thirty thousand dollars a year gift. My children or my grandchildren but there are a lot of people out there that are right and they need to know this information. They need to know that can give them an annual basis. They just need to subtracted from the total mountain and play by the rules. Because you know you don't want to get yourself in trouble for sure. I think it's important. I also just from a tax law perspective. We don't we don't know what tax laws will be in the future cert. There's certainly not static in there definitely subject to change so under under the current law the lifetime exemption amount is scheduled to reduce back to the two thousand and seventeen exemption of five million dollars per person. And that's adjusted for inflation and that starts in twenty twenty six so under current law that that lifetime exemption amount goes is reduced from almost twelve million dollars down to almost six million dollars with y when you consider inflation. What happens to those people that have already. You don't reach that that mark. Maybe they've given away eleven million and then it goes back to five million per person are they are the grandfathered in i'm using air quotes there. The grandfather dinners. They're going to be any issue with that. Oh you ask a great question. And the the irs. They have determined that. There's not going to be a clawback. So yes they can make the gift now. It will always be exempt said. It's good so again. There's there's much needed information for those people that are in this situation. There's a time limit right. I mean there's there's kind of a ticking clock on on getting those gifts to somebody before it sunsets back to a much lesser amount. So the great information

We're definitely put explicit on this one but the truth is funny as he is. He is restricted on these. Because i've seen him when he's not on the bad guys out there was there was no mention erupted. Jeremy on this one. So i was a little disappointed but whatever it was so well not not that we recorded Anyway this is a great episode with omer episode nineteen and we dive deep on optic so You know i. I've been dealing with precision optics for last fifteen years. I bought a bunch of stuff for them on the biggest thing for me. When i'm dealing with owners the honesty the honest conversation and lately could said on the podcast. There's been a few times where he's talked me out of stuff somebody said. Oh you gotta get this. And i go in and say. Hey what about this. And he's like no. That's not what you need man like this is. This is what you need in. This is why you want to use it And he's for me. A trusted source now when i call him. I know he's not steering me wrong. I just talk about what. I need a out of something. What i'm gonna use it for. And he tells me what i should be looking at. And he's not he's not a salesman in in the true sense of the word he's he's not trying to sell you a product. He's trying to sell you what you need. Not not what necessarily what you want right. Yeah absolutely and this is a really interesting one. I learned a lot on it You know i. I've got some of his products. So what i learned on there and some stuff too. I was like it was over my head.

"So without putting x them out but you have to do some work but but he knows he knows his stuff. Yeah i think that's a pretty good option for new guys right like if you're if you don't really have a an area that you're confident about like you said you can do your own research. Get the map so you know you're and it's pretty easy on the internet these days right. There's a lot of options that you just look it up and look at different lakes guys talk about whether she. But if you don't know where to go it's pretty affordable these trips where you go you know a flying is going to be a bit more pricey But with someone like river jet they're affordable and they're going to drop you off an area where sheep you still got to kill him. You still gotta find him. But you're going to have the best chance. And it's pretty affordable. So i think that's a pretty cool opportunity for maybe somebody that's never been on a sheep onto if they just don't know where to go yet and it's good too because jason always pick up like can you get one ram downhill pick it up and take care of it and bring it to a cooler and all that stuff too which is always a great option that you don't have you know flying in and stuff gets a little more expensive. Yeah yeah absolutely for sure. So you said you gotta buddy this jet boat and you guys are planning a trip this year. Yeah yeah yeah yeah he. I've been with them a few times and he's just a great guy great op great operator and is my new best friend. Any thousand dollar jetboat will do exactly. Yeah yeah no no we get along great just a young guy but he's got it together and he's his passion is like mine or even greater for hunting incredible. Well that's a cooling. What a jet. Tuesday get out there and do that sort of stuff to write a home. I know guys that have you know. I'm a pilot by trade. Is you know guys like by my own airplane and go fly in. And i'm like you're on your own buddy. Mike you know you look at these guys in the mountains. I've done a few flying trips. I haven't done a ton but the guys that are in there they know the valley's there's times where it's fogged in. You know the value going and you can't get up. They make a phone call and they talked to somebody and go. Oh yeah it's it's clear down south we can get around there so i think you know by having a skilled bush pilot. You're gonna certainly increase your chances. Your chances of dying are lot less too. I think that somebody that doesn't what they're doing in the mountains. You don't really want them messing around on these mountain. Mount passes in these lakes and stuff like that. No you definitely want new pilots to do lots of flying on their own before i get in the plane with. I'm not sure. Do you look at these guys. That i've flown within when i get into. I see the gray hair and they've been doing it for twenty years. You know bruce was a great one these these flake there. You know you never know. Br he was an interesting character and he always told you what he thought. But you'd never had to worry about how he's gonna fly the airplane. You always felt really safe and done it so long as he was good at it. And yes. so there's a lot of great operators out there that do a good job and they know the area and they're to get you in and out as safely as they can be out definitely a different breed of guys every plane offering Their humor and it's pretty like christmas or out of outland. Just fantastic fantastic guys..

"In like and and the guy to my dad knew him for years and years and years. I knew his brother. His brothers great sponsor as well but by just falling them up out of the blue and had an idea and he said okay. I'll give you this much money. And they've done it every year since you know so The jacobson brothers. Like they're they're great. They've they've always supported us. Like i don't even know the list just goes on and on and on like i kind of have a core group of guys in dawson and then corey has a core group of guys. And then josh and robin group of guys and ford saint john and it's just it's just amazing like even Well buddy. Chris gainer their elbert. Oh boy but you know he had. He had an oil patch company. And i just for friends on facebook and had a few whiskies in real life and next thing. And all he's He's supporting us through his company and he actually brought the first year they were up here. Working on a big project so he brought i think nine guys nine his supervisors. They came and last year. He actually The troy fisher buckle. Don't remember i told you about that. trey got the buckle done. But we couldn't because of whatever we couldn't get it to dawson so. Chris actually was on his way. He turned around and bellevue back an hour and thirty five minutes. Troy drove an hour and thirty minutes from his house. They met in the middle. And then chris brought the brought the buckle to dawson for us to talk and otherwise we would have never got it like you know. It's pretty crazy for these guys to to do stuff for you know we're we're good friends and stuff but it all to drive three hours out of your ways to to make it successful for the boys the awesome. Yeah you know it hat on that The we've had a major amazing sponsorship and amazing support with donations. We have tons of sponsors that sponsor great items and then they go and spend the money at the show as well in jacobson contracting for one the one year they sponsored a five thousand dollar gun package and then he bought the gun back for five thousand dollars so You know that to have that kind of support. These guys are saying like he was like you know what i know what that guns where. It's it's not going for that money. And then he bought it back for the same amount of money that he paid for it like. It's just it's insane. I guess to the two of the other ones we should talk about is correlation sporting goods and dawson and back country and fort saint john. Obviously because i live in dawson my whole life. I know the coralline skies quite well. You know i've known him for thirty plus years They're amazing you know like they so we have that one last year We did a special. We did a special thing with a forty five seventy and So we had one. And we talk with aaron and drag and tim and the boys and they're like you know what i said. I wanted to do something for the life members. They gave us a forty five seventy for like thirty cents on the dollar. I'm not even kidding you. That was the one that we gave away dawson last year. Every life member in attendance and the dawson show got their name putting a hat and then we actually had correlations. Come up draw a name. And then tim gave the gun to the guy. That wanted dawson. So you know like the support..

"Land. Recruitment is all these other challenges to that trying to work with incurable recovery areas so that brings a piece to the tables. Well there's a lot of factors but things are looking good. We're optimistic that we have a plan. It's it's it's been presented to flynn role. We've addressed most the the concerns. And i think i think we're off to a really good really good start so hopefully twenty twenty one won't be our first year in a multi room program right on. So would you say that the primary focus for for you guys in the north with your projects is habitat enhancement. Work or you know. I guess really the question for you is. What's the biggest challenge for northern wild cheap right now with our thin horns. What are we concern. Most of i think you have to have the highway mortality. And that's quite restricted areas. You have human caused. Brutality have predation you have habitat. So i think the predation and the lack of habitat Starvation view or anything else than the nats those two big Evacuated be habitat and predation. So that's kind of where we tried to mental the the thing and then we're in those. Do we have agreed. Okay fantastic so big projects for twenty one. Obviously the the the northern burn And there's the dunlavey heard Health assessment Anything else on the books That's coming up that we your fundraising four right now. Yeah i'm sure we'll be getting a lot of Asks from other groups as well the ministries release stepping up. It seems like you know we did. Uh we were able to chip in last minute Before kind of corporate started. They wanted to do a survey for their southern big horn. Here We were able to help. Connect some dots at the ministry so they could give them the chopper and get it done. And then that's kind of rolled into a bigger project that they're working on this year with the aside as well. So that's you know we're starting to look at all these different groups all the way up in in what needs to be done and then as far as on the The west side of the listen reservoirs. Well there's more habitat assessment working on this year. Some allow more inventories bragging inventory more sheep this year in the north than we have in years a long long time. So that's going to give us a lot more data points as well fantastic. I think that's i think that's a big we need. We need an inventory of areas. Actually find out what's out there for sheep. You know huge. That's and that's one that people always ask me about to you. Know they're they're three favorites or fires predation and an actual accurate count of how many stolen cheaper actually out there in the areas fantastic Any other last thoughts before we jump off the project subject. Anything else Korea rob you wanna add their knowledge. Is that Josh and robin or get an amazing job at the projects like they've They've really stepped up in that aspect and those to pretty much look after majority of the projects. In the north. It's awesome erkki. Guys were strays of pre key role as far as between the fundraising in.

There's a ton of money race for while sheep through the northern fundraiser. And we actually have through the society dedicated northern account that that money exclusively goes to wildlife conservation in the north. We don't spend it on Bighorns we don't send it so It's spent in northern bc. So can you guys just touch on a few of the projects. I know if josh jump into it or anyone else on some of the projects that you guys are You know kind of on the radar for twenty twenty twenty twenty one. Sure yup I guess start with like you know when we started the northern Robin corey started the northern kinda gave us the funds to for for the society. Start looking those projects and then it came to kinda you know what can actually be done. What levers available free to to fund projects. What's available out there.

"Good pretty awesome. So i i hear corey clipping away on the computer there. So he's obviously busy putting auction items in for the northern and Unfortunately we couldn't get robin on here so we got The three you boys can't wait to hear about it so northern fundraiser You know this is This is a weird year for us. This is the first time we're not going forward with the northern so There's obviously quite a bit of a back story in the northern. And i think rob if you want to jump right into it. You've you've been involved with the northern for from the get go so let's talk about the genesis of it not. Let's how to get started. The idea come from and how did well in the old days Some good friends of mine used to go down to kamloops or colona you know back in the day the switch the show between the two so some real good friends of mine invited me to go down for the show. You know boys we can maybe have a couple beers or something like that win some stuff. So i went to my first one in or colonia it was awesome and then the next year it moved to kamloops so inquiry had been hunting together. Lots and in france were fourteen so didn't really take much talk him into on so we went out for the weekend. Won a bunch of stuff. talk with Mike schroeder mike southern about bringing one up to the north country. And you know back then. It was pipedream so then the next year cory mardi jason. I went back and At the end of the night over a course of maybe one or two whiskeys Schroeder and southern really got to it and then on the way home or in the the next morning on the way home is talking to corey you know. Check me about thirty. One seconds to talk came into jumping on board. So that's honestly how it started was Order southern and then my first guy obviously was corey so.
