December 17, 2017 Monster Energy sends big props to Chloe Kim as she made quick work of the halfpipe at the Dew Tour on Friday. With another convincing win, the 17-year-old snowboard phenom continued her dominance of the sport with a showing that seemed unfair at times for the other competitors.

Despite the fact that Mother Nature has been late to show this winter in Colorado, a fresh six-inches fell over the past few days giving the Rockies a much needed blanket of white as competition for the Dew Tour kicked off in Breckenridge late Friday afternoon....

CCIR to Congress: BEAT Will Negate Tax Relief for Consumers and Businesses

16 12 2017

WASHINGTON, Dec. 16, 2017 -- Today the Coalition for Competitive Insurance Rates (CCIR), the leading voice for continued and increased competition within the insurance industry, expressed disappointment in the House-Senate Conference Agreement for H.R. 1, the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" that includes a harmful Base Erosion and Anti-Abuse Tax ("BEAT") that will unfairly slap US consumers and small businesses with higher insurance premiums – undoing potential tax relief they had hoped to get from this bill. In response to the inclusion of this provision in H.R. 1, CCIR issued the following statement:     "The global insurance and reinsurance industry is concerned that Congress would include a provision in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that will serve only to "Americanize" risk by decreasing capacity benefits to insurance markets globally, thus increasing US prices. This is truly a blow to consumers and business, particularly those in Florida, Texas,...
