“It would only be for tag renewals, paperwork that needed to be picked up for title applications we can print and collecting land taxes on my part. Any new tags would still need to come over here [to the Monroe County Courthouse]. Anything that is title transfer would still be over here. This would just be an opportunity for a location for drive-thru, which during this time, we know is limiting contact.

Reserve Bank of the Philippines to Continue Working on its Central Bank Digital Currency which Might Streamline Financial Services

Benjamin Diokno, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of the Philippines, recently noted that the underlying technology behind digital tokens may streamline or enhance existing financial services. The nation’s central bank is looking into the feasibility of issuing its own virtual currency.

As reported by Bloomberg Quint, the reserve bank in the Philippines is looking into the potential benefits that central bank digital currencies might offer. The bank has reportedly held “comprehensive discussions” on the regulatory requirements for issuing a state-backed virtual currency.

U.S. Rep Jim McGovern implores Congress to pass RESTAURANTS Act to provide $120 billion in grants to food services industry to pay rent, mortgage, utilities and more

Standing outside of El Patron, a restaurant in Worcester’s Canal District, U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern took aim at his Republican colleagues in Congress, specifically Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell.

McGovern expressed confidence the U.S. House would be able to pass the RESTAURANTS Act to provide financial help to establishments that are bracing for a winter without outdoor dining. But without senate approval, the bill helps no one.

“We have to get it through the United States Senate,” McGovern said. “And if it were to move there, it would require Mitch McConnell to get off his ass and take up something that is important to the American people.”

McGovern is a co-sponsor of the RESTAURANTS Act, which is a $120 billion grant program to provide relief to restaurants through the end of the year.

The program would be administered by the Department of the Treasury and available to food service or
