Cohen touts a recent success of the agency to lend support for his encouragement of mediation and conciliation.
He argued that the United Steelworkers of America and ArcelorMittal–an international steel producer–moved from an adversarial relationship to collaborative, collective bargaining with the help of his agency.
In Cohen’s world, while much of collective bargaining brings hostility and antagonism, it does not have to be that way. [...]

Missouri often decries its competitive disadvantage resting between states whose tax incentive programs (1) exist and (2) draw business away from Missouri.
As the old maxim states, a poor workman blames his tools.
According to a new study released by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, you are more likely to meet a Missouri entrepreneur than a Kansas entrepreneur.
In fact, Missouri ranked among the nation’s top 15, although the Midwest had the overall lowest entrepreneurial rates. In Missouri, one would find 400 entrepreneurs for every 100,000 people.
One of Missouri’s recurring complaints is against the successful Kansas Angel Tax Credit [...]

The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC), a utility regulator, recently upheld an earlier decision upbraiding the Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCPL) for poor management of legal fees in a 2009 lawsuit.
The KCC decried KCPL’s lax management, depicting over 90 attorneys and consultants who logged over 25,000 hours, most of which were spent refuting a single witness criticizing cost overages for the Iatan project.
KCPL attempts to use local attorneys, but also brought in outside national firms for this particular case.
Poslinelli Shughart, one of the participating firms, billed KCPL $1.5m.
SNR Denton billed KCPL approximately $60,000. However, due [...]

While the lawsuit was never filed, the Conference holds onto it.
