    Naming rights at city hall? In Westminster, all ideas are on table to pay for Civic Center as budget gets tight
    Four years ago, the city of Westminster picked developer Steve Sheldon to rebuild its aging Civic Center. He came up with a blueprint featuring sleek government buildings alongside attractive townhomes.
    Four years later, the 8.3-acre site looks pretty much the same as it has for nearly half a century. And in light of growing concerns over its feasibility, the dream project could languish yet longer.

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has proposed that governments around the world require payment of at least a uniform “global minimum corporate tax.”
    A motivation for Yellen’s push for a global minimum corporate tax is fear that the Biden administration’s proposed increase in the US corporate tax will cause some American corporations to flee the US for countries with lower corporate taxes.
