Dave Troy: Baltimore residents deserve to know more about city finances [Baltimore Business Journal]: “[W]e need audits in order for citizens and government to have a shared view. If we want to address fairness and justice in Baltimore, we need to ensure that government does not have better or different data from voters.

America Needs A Pro-Growth Immigration System [TechCrunch]: “We will also expand the highly skilled H1-B visa program from the current 65,000 to a program with a new floor of 110,000, a ceiling of 180,000, and an additional 25,000 exemptions for persons who graduate from a U.S. university with an advanced degree in science, technology, engineering or math.”
