A sweeping statewide tenant protection measure intended to make it harder for landlords to raise rents and move forward with evictions would not negatively impact the housing supply in New York City, advocates of the bill argued in a report released Monday.

But opponents of the legislation argue the report is misleading and would hurt small landowners.

At issue is the creation of a statewide eviction law for cause in New York. The bill seeks to prohibit landlords from evicting tenants who are unable to pay what is considered an unreasonable increase in rent.

The debate over affordable housing policy in New York is heating up once again as lawmakers head toward the end of the legislative session, which is due to end on June 2. Lawmakers are debating the extension and potential changes to tax breaks in addition to pushing for a good cause right.

Supporters of the legislation pointed Monday to a report released by the Pratt Center for Community Development and Community Service Society in New York that examined the effect of a “good cause” in New Jersey that has been on the books for nearly 50 years. The law, according to the report, did not impact the pace of construction in the Garden State.

“Strengthening tenant protections and improving the housing stock are not mutually exclusive,” said report co-author Samuel Stein, a housing policy analyst at the Community Service Society. “In fact, the two reinforce each other, and we have the data to prove it.”

But the Community Housing Improvement Program called the report misleading and New Jersey law is not an accurate point of comparison.

“This report lacks credibility. The authors of this report are clearly attempting to mislead the public to advance their political agenda,” said Jay Martin, executive director of the Community Housing Improvement Program. “It is particularly disappointing that the government continues to funnel taxpayers’ money into this institution and non-profit organization. organization so they can spread lies and half-truths.”

Eversource Energy is seeking buyers for its share of the long-planned Revolution Wind offshore energy project.

Revolution Wind is one of two large wind farms planned off the south coast of New England that would generate electricity for Connecticut. The other project is the Park City wind farm being developed by Orange-based Avangrid. Construction of Park City Wind will take place primarily out of Bridgeport.

Connecticut is counting on the two projects to meet its statutory goals to reduce carbon emissions by 2040, amid continued uncertainty over Dominion’s long-term plans for its two nuclear reactors. at Millstone Power Station in Waterford which supply a quarter of New England’s electricity.

Eversource CEO Joe Nolan says the decision to divest his stake in Revolution Wind was a simple economic matter – a federal auction in February for lease rights off Long Island and New Jersey reported $4.4 billion. This makes Eversource think it can make a bigger profit by selling its share of the project to offshore wind investors, rather than staying in the Revolution Wind partnership with Orsted.

“People have always asked us these questions, whether we’re going to monetize our wind assets,” Nolan said Thursday during a conference call with investment analysts. “If someone backs up a Brink’s truck, obviously we’ll look into that.”

Gov. Ned Lamont briefly addressed the decision Thursday at a news conference in Hartford, saying he plans to speak with Nolan.

“Orsted is a company that generates billions of dollars a year – they have the resources to do that,” Lamont said. “I liked the fact that we have a local partner at Eversource. I think there’s probably a bit of a trade-off – they’re looking at the value of their leases today versus what they paid. “

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection did not immediately respond to questions about potential regulatory insight that could accompany a divestment from Eversource. A Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Commission spokesperson referred the questions to DEEP.

Eversource spokesman Mitch Gross said the company “strongly” believes in the potential of offshore wind farms as a source of clean energy for New England, as well as a job generator. . He said the company had hired Goldman Sachs to help it weigh all the offers, with the possibility of it sticking with the project in the end.

“Proceeds from any potential sale would be used for major investments to support clean energy development and strengthen our grid to support widespread electrification,” Gross said by email. “We’ll see what kind of interest and offers we get and go from there.”

In February, the federal Office of Oceans Management held its first offshore lease auction for New York Bay, and Avangrid was among the bidders. Through its subsidiary Avangrid Renewables, the company is one of the largest operators of solar and wind farms in the United States.

In addition to Revolution Wind off the coast of Rhode Island, Orsted and Eversource sued South Fork Wind, east of Montauk Point, to supply power to New York’s Long Island Power Authority; and Sunrise Wind, off the Jersey Shore. The companies own 273 square miles of additional lease rights off the coast of Massachusetts.

In a conference call two weeks ago, Orsted executives said they had made a “final investment decision” with Eversource on Revolution Wind.

Orsted gave no indication during the April call that Eversource might consider alternatives for its own 50-50 stake in the project. But CEO Mads Nipper said his company was bracing for what he called “bottlenecks and inflationary pressures” to its US projects that could squeeze deadlines to complete them. He said Orsted had already blocked the vast majority of steel purchases needed to build the North East wind farms.

“We’re not seeing the value creation that we had been aiming for,” Nipper said in April. “We continue to look for levers to help improve the business case.”

Gross said inflationary pressure played no role in Eversource’s decision to consider a sale.

Orsted owns the Block Island Wind Farm, which was the first offshore grid in the United States, with five turbines supplying electricity to some 1,800 homes on the island, many of which are summer residences.

Located slightly south of the midpoint between Block Island and Martha’s Vineyard, Revolution Wind would be much larger, supplying Connecticut with just over 300 megawatts of electricity under optimum wind conditions – enough for about 150,000 homes – with 400 megawatts towards Rhode Island.

DEEP’s goal is for onshore battery farms to provide a steady flow of power during periods of lighter wind. Batteries could also be harnessed to mitigate the impact of any spike in the cost of electricity produced by natural gas-fired power plants. Prices jumped this year during the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

Bill would give car owners tax refunds of up to $800 to offset gas prices https://bizchinanfljerseycheap.com/bill-would-give-car-owners-tax-refunds-of-up-to-800-to-offset-gas-prices/ Fri, 06 May 2022 10:51:58 +0000 https://bizchinanfljerseycheap.com/bill-would-give-car-owners-tax-refunds-of-up-to-800-to-offset-gas-prices/ Car owners would benefit from tax breaks under a new bill aimed at relieving motorists struggling with petrol prices pushed up by supply chain constraints and disputes in Eastern Europe.

Car owners would benefit from tax breaks under a new bill aimed at relieving motorists struggling with petrol prices pushed up by supply chain constraints and disputes in Eastern Europe.

The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Raj Mukherji (D-Hudson), would offer New Jersey residents a non-commercial vehicle registered in their name with tax rebates of between $400 and $800, depending on the number months they have lived in the state in a given tax year.

“Our motorists and commuters are recovering from the pandemic. They are facing high inflation, and with the price of gasoline, they just need a break,” Mukherji said in an interview.

Mukherji’s proposal would also create a fare holiday for NJ Transit users that would run from June through August and draw a significant portion of the agency’s revenue.

The bill sets aside $1.65 billion to pay for the rebates and reimburse NJ Transit for a portion of the cost of the fare vacation.

Gasoline prices in New Jersey averaged $4.38 a gallon on Friday, slightly higher than the national average of $4.28, according to AAA data. A year ago, the New Jersey average was $2.98.

Mukherji said his proposal was based on a $9 billion plan proposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom. The California Democrat’s plan would also create a three-month holiday on public transit fares and offer rebates between $400 and $800, but rewards would be based on the number of cars owned by a given filer, up to a two-vehicle limit.

It also recalls a repayment plan drafted by Senator Ed Durr (R-Gloucester). Durr’s proposal would offer residents $250 rebates for single filers earning less than $125,000 a year, with doubled rebates and income limits for joint filers. These rebates would be paid retroactively to 2021 tax bills.

A spokesman for the governor declined to comment on Mukherji’s bill, but the governor said in March that Durr’s proposal, which the senator says comes with a $1.9 billion prize , was “worth debating”. Mukherji said he has yet to speak to the governor’s office about his plan but hopes he will receive a positive response.

Assemblyman Raj Mukherji said he has yet to discuss the plan with the governor’s office, but hopes the administration will be “open-minded”. (Photo by Danielle Richards for New Jersey Monitor)

“I read in the papers that the governor was open-minded about another potential solution that when I heard about it would be more expensive and just a different way to go about it,” Mukherji said.

It’s unclear how much NJ Transit would lose in revenue from a three-month fare holiday. The agency expects to receive $766.2 million in fee revenue in the next fiscal year, according to budget documents.

Some of NJ Transit’s losses would be offset by a $150 million general fund appropriation included in Mukherji’s bill.

The rebates for car owners would be funded by a $1.5 billion credit, though Mukherji said he hopes the bill could be paid with unused federal aid.

About $3 billion of the approximately $6 billion in federal aid received by the state under the US bailout has yet to be allocated. Lawmakers have until December 31, 2024 to appropriate these funds, and they must spend them by the end of 2026.

Mukherji said he has yet to discuss the proposal with Democratic leaders in either house, and while those officials haven’t fully embraced the repayment plan, they won’t. have not ruled out either.

“I am carefully considering proposals to the Assembly,” Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) said in a statement. “With a focus on affordability this legislative session and knowing that New Jerseyans face challenges, we are thoughtfully exploring a host of legislative solutions to control costs across the spectrum.”

Plans to tackle rising gas prices

Although their chances of success appear to be the best, Durr and Mukherji’s bills are not the only proposals for gas price relief.

Sen. Shirley Turner (D-Mercer) introduced a bill that would impose a 60-day gas tax exemption reducing New Jersey’s per-gallon rate from 42.4 cents to 14.5 cents, but this The measure appears to have stalled due to fears that a holiday would deplete the Transportation Trust Fund, which is funded by gas tax revenues and pays for transit projects and roadwork.

A separate proposal, backed by the New Jersey Gasoline and C-Store Association, to allow self-service at New Jersey gas stations is also in legislative limbo. Senate Speaker Nicholas Scutari (D-Union) said in March he opposed the bill, citing public support for the state’s full-service mandate and lack of evidence that allowing free -service would reduce gasoline prices.

New Jersey has already established itself as a hub for the rapidly growing fintech industry. But should the state do more by creating an official Fintech innovation center?

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority seeks to understand this. On Monday, it issued a request for information seeking information from qualified entities with perspectives on the creation of a physical innovation center dedicated to fintech.

EDA officials said the RFI was seeking to gather information on whether a strategic fintech innovation center would create a unique opportunity for additional economic development, support growth and job creation, and catalyze economic growth. innovation in the state.

The RFI is available here. Responses are expected by June 6.

NJ and fintech: perfect together?

Economic Development Authority CEO Tim Sullivan said New Jersey is on track to become the nation’s hub for the fintech industry, as many of the top financial services firms in the world have already localized their back-office data and technology support operations in the state.

New Jersey offers:

  • A densely populated northeast corridor connected to public transit;
  • First-class digital infrastructure;
  • Highly educated, skilled and diverse workforce;
  • An international gateway with easy access to employees, customers and consumers around the world.

EDA CEO Tim Sullivan said the state not only wants feedback, questions, and recommendations on the potential value of creating a hub of fintech activity in New Jersey, but that the RFI sought to help the state better understand the opportunities and challenges associated with establishing a Fintech Innovation Center, including:

  • Market needs and gaps, potential sites and logistical considerations;
  • Information on potential projects or solutions that present the best return on investment and opportunities for sustainability;
  • National and international models to consider when developing a Fintech innovation center.

“Collecting information on how a fintech innovation center could contribute to economic vitality and quality of life in the state will help us identify best practices and innovative ideas to develop a successful center that has makes sense for New Jersey in terms of its long-term economic competitiveness,” Sullivan said.

NJEDA is seeking responses from qualified entities, including, but not limited to, finance and insurance companies; information technology companies; suppliers within financial services and technology supply chains (eg, product and technology development); post-secondary institutions; relevant industrial or commercial groups; policy and academic researchers; real estate agents; business leaders, employers and entrepreneurs; technical support providers; and municipal or county governments.

Top GP warns of women’s health risk due to HRT shortage https://bizchinanfljerseycheap.com/top-gp-warns-of-womens-health-risk-due-to-hrt-shortage/ Tue, 26 Apr 2022 23:48:59 +0000 https://bizchinanfljerseycheap.com/top-gp-warns-of-womens-health-risk-due-to-hrt-shortage/ The UK’s top GP has urged the shortage of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to be addressed quickly, warning that steps some women may take to access the drug could lead to “serious side effects”.

The UK’s top GP has urged the shortage of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to be addressed quickly, warning that steps some women may take to access the drug could lead to “serious side effects”.

Supply shortages of the drug, which is used to treat menopausal symptoms, have reportedly driven some women to travel hundreds of miles in search of it or to share other people’s drugs.

In comments first reported by The Guardian, Professor Martin Marshall, president of the Royal College of GPs, said the issue was causing “distress” to many women.

“It’s really important that this is resolved as soon as possible.”

He also said the college was “learning that the supply problem was specific to England”.

It comes after the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) asked Health Secretary Sajid Javid to allow pharmacists to dispense substitute versions of prescription drugs.

Claire Anderson, president of RPS, told the Guardian that current laws in England state that community pharmacists must supply the exact product and quantity of prescription drugs.

If the type of HRT product is not available, a substitute cannot be dispensed without consulting the GP who prescribed the medicine.

Pharmacists in England are currently not allowed to change prescriptions (Andy Buchanan/PA)

“Allowing pharmacists to do this will save time for patients, pharmacists and physicians, while reducing anxiety for women waiting for medication.”

Mr Javid had previously announced his intention to appoint an HRT czar.

While the RPS welcomed the decision, Ms Anderson said in a later statement that the government needed to ‘go further and end unfair prescription charges for patients in England’.

She added: “With continued concerns from patient groups about the supply of medicines for people with other conditions, this appointment must be part of a broader government strategy to ensure patient access to medicines. .

The RPS recommendations come after Labor MP and co-chair of the UK Menopause Task Force, Carolyn Harris, said the Health Secretary should tackle the acute shortage of HRT himself rather than appoint a tsar.

“The problem with menopause is that for too long women have not been listened to, women have been ignored, they have been prescribed and diagnosed with other conditions and menopause has not even been considered,” said- she told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

“For a postmenopausal woman, this HRT is as important as insulin for a diabetic.”

Mr Javid told the Mail on Sunday he was “committed” to ensuring supplies met the high demand and would use lessons learned during the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Hormone therapy helps combat symptoms of menopause, including anxiety, joint pain, trouble sleeping, and hot flashes.

USFL Week 2 results, takeaways: Breakers claim top team, while league’s top QB comes as a surprise https://bizchinanfljerseycheap.com/usfl-week-2-results-takeaways-breakers-claim-top-team-while-leagues-top-qb-comes-as-a-surprise/ Mon, 25 Apr 2022 00:14:00 +0000 https://bizchinanfljerseycheap.com/usfl-week-2-results-takeaways-breakers-claim-top-team-while-leagues-top-qb-comes-as-a-surprise/ Week 2 of the 2022 USFL season is officially in the books.

Week 2 of the 2022 USFL season is officially in the books. We have a better idea of ​​who the best teams and players are at this stage, but there’s still a lot of football to play. The Michigan Panthers and Pittsburgh Maulers are the two remaining winless teams, while the Birmingham Stallions and New Orleans Breakers are the two undefeated clubs. The Stallions and Breakers face off next week, which should be fun.

Below, we’ll detail some takeaways from the USFL’s second week of action. Also, be sure to check out the USFL season standings and schedule. We have all the latest news on our USFL page here. First, here’s an overview of all the scores from Week 2:

Friday
New Jersey Generals 10, Michigan Panthers 6

Saturday
Philadelphia Stars 30, Pittsburgh Maulers 23
Birmingham Stallions 33, at Houston Gamblers 38

Sunday
New Orleans Breakers 34, Tampa Bay Bandits 3

The Breakers stand out as the best team

Wow. Nobody saw what happened on Sunday coming. The Breakers completely wiped out the Bandits, 34-3, in what was supposed to be our early season clash between the top two teams. New Orleans took an early lead and just didn’t look back. The offense scored touchdowns on its first two possessions, and the defense forced the Bandits three straight outs on their first three possessions. This defensive unit looks like one of the best in the league, and it made life unbearable in Ta’amu on Sunday. He threw for just 62 yards and one interception!

Kyle Sloter, meanwhile, threw for 266 yards, two touchdowns and also rushed for a touchdown in the win. He looks like a solid player, but he’s been struggling with multiple injuries. The Breakers also have some intriguing weapons in Jordan Ellis, TJ Logan and Jonathan Adams. They seem to be the early favorites to win the championship.

Eyes on Shea Patterson go ahead

Patterson, who was the USFL’s No. 1 draft pick, struggled in the Panthers’ Week 2 loss to the Generals, as he completed 14 of 29 passes for 124 yards. He only had 50 passing yards before the Panthers’ final possession!

Facing a fourth-and-20 from their own 10-yard line with a minute left at four points, the Panthers rallied to move the ball to the generals’ 16-yard line with five seconds left. However, Patterson’s last pitch fell incomplete. He was hesitant to let the ball fly when he had open receivers on the field and struggled to connect with his wides in general. Maybe head coach Jeff Fisher can find something to build on after what has been an impressive last gasp, but Paxton Lynch could get more playing time in the future.

Is Bryan Scott the best QB in the USFL?

Heading into this season, Scott was considered an interesting story, but probably not the best quarterback in the USFL. However, after two weeks of action, should we start asking ourselves this question? The Occidental College signalman went undefeated and won the Spring League Championship a few years ago, and now leads the USFL in passing yards (474) and passing touchdowns (4).

The No. 1 overall pick in Patterson struggled, and the No. 2 overall pick Jordan Ta’amu was crushed on Sunday. J’Mar Smith looks great for the Stallions, but is Scott the real star of this league?

Stallions have a real home advantage

The Birmingham Stallions are the only team in the USFL with “home field advantage”, and that’s actually a thing. They are one of two remaining undefeated teams and around 17,000 fans showed up for their season opener. They also had a decent number of people showing up for their contest last Saturday night. If you watched any other USFL game this week, you probably noticed the attendance was terrible. Seriously, it looked like there were less than 100 people there on Sunday. With only one of the eight teams having what appears to be a legit fan base, it will be something to watch.

First three-point conversion

After scoring a touchdown in the USFL, teams can go for one, two, or three runs. With the Stars up four points after a fourth quarter score, it was the perfect time to score three.

Saturday was for points

In the first week of the USFL, betting Unders in games was lucrative. However, you got burned if you were on the Unders on Saturday. We had a team that scored 30 points in a single game for the first time this season, and there were two of them, as the Stars beat the Maulers, 30-23, and the Stallions beat the Gamblers, 33 -28. This relatively high business was surprising, and for a young league trying to grab headlines, that’s a good thing. The more points, the better.

From cell phones and laptops to power tools and electric vehicles, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are becoming more and more prevalent in our lives. By 2025, the global lithium battery market is estimated to exceed $100 billion.

Although rechargeable lithium batteries are recyclable, care must be taken to do so correctly. Batteries of any kind should never be placed in curbside recycling containers as they have caused fires and in some cases destroyed recycling facilities. These batteries burn at extremely high temperatures, making them dangerous to people and property. Fortunately, there are several free and convenient ways to safely recycle them.

One way is to take them to places that participate in a targeted battery recycling program, like Home Depot, Lowes, and Staples. Nationwide, most retailers with battery drop-off stations receive their containers from Call2Recycle, a non-profit organization. New Jersey Counties recently partnered with Call2Recycle to produce a statewide battery awareness campaign for its residents. The Avoid the Spark NJ Campaign has its own website where residents can find convenient drop-off locations and learn more about proper battery safety and identification (see links at the bottom of this article).

Another option is to take them to a municipal electronics recycling site. Many cities accept rechargeable lithium batteries for free if connected to an electronic device or power tool, such as laptops, cell phones, and cordless drills. Many municipalities in Camden County often sponsor electronics recycling collection programs throughout the year. Contact your local public works department for your municipality’s e-waste recycling guidelines.

A third option is to take the batteries attached to electronic devices to a state-licensed e-waste recycling facility, such as Magnum Computer Recycling in Pennsauken.
(856) 333-0991 or Tab Shredding Inc. in Berlin (856) 768-4402. Tab Shredding charges a fee. It is advisable to make an appointment before dropping off items.

Finally, residents can bring all rechargeable batteries and single-use lithium batteries to one of the county’s household hazardous waste collection events. Please note that only loose batteries are accepted at these events – electronic devices are not accepted. See page 8 for the 2022 Fundraising Events Calendar.

Camden County Commissioner and Environmental Affairs Division Liaison Jefferey Nash stressed the importance of proper recycling. “With the proliferation of lithium batteries in our society, it is imperative that they are handled responsibly and safely. The consequences of not disposing of these items properly can create undue risks for our community and harm the health and well-being of our residents. The Board of Commissioners encourages all residents to use one of the many convenient recycling sites around the county for these and all rechargeable batteries.”

To learn more about the proper handling of all battery types and to find convenient drop-off locations near you, visit: call2recycle.org/avoid-the-spark-nj or CamdenCounty.com/LithiumBatteries.


County Takes Steps to Improve Convenience of Electronics Recycling Programs and Document Shredding Events

Prior to the pandemic, county electronics collection events routinely lost participation to more convenient municipal collection/drop-off programs and local businesses that accepted e-waste. Many of these drop-off programs are open to the public year-round, providing a convenient opportunity to recycle e-waste. Magnum Computer Recycling in Pennsauken is one of the local companies offering free and convenient e-waste disposal services.

Along the same lines, the county is working to improve its shredding events by reducing the long lines and wait times caused by the hundreds of residents converging at one location. To achieve this, a more localized model similar to e-waste disposal was adopted.

One of the county’s approaches to making recycling and disposal programs more convenient for its residents was to use funding from the State Recycling Enhancement Act (REA) grant to establish a sponsorship program for municipalities that accepted to organize their own shredding events. In 2021, this enabled residents to destroy sensitive documents locally while saving time, fuel and protecting the environment. Municipalities that participated in this county-sponsored program received up to $1,000 to fund a local shredding event. Small towns that opted for joint shredding events with neighboring towns were also eligible for funding of up to $1,000.

A total of nine municipalities took advantage of this sponsorship program and generated 73,406 pounds of shredded paper for recycling. Building on this first-year success, the county will again offer sponsorship for shredding events to interested municipalities in 2022.

Along with the municipality’s efforts, the county plans to host a county-wide shredding event this year on June 4 at the Woodcrest PATCO High Speedline station in Cherry Hill from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.


Reduce your carbon footprint at home with home composting!

Although all organic matter breaks down over time, there are simple steps you can take at home to effectively speed up the process. The homemade compost you produce can then be used to feed your plants, garden and more around your property.

Step 1
Buy or build a bin about 1 cubic yard (3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft) or use an open space in your yard without a bin. The size of the pan/area is important to get the right temperature to aid in the decomposition process. If the bin/pile is too small, it will not generate enough heat to support the microbial activity essential for decomposition. If the bin/area is too large, it will not allow enough air to reach the microbes in the center.

2nd step
Mix the two-part brown material (leaves, straw, small twigs,
etc.) with one-component green material (grass clippings, vegetable scraps, etc.). This 2:1 ratio provides the best mix of carbon (leaves) and nitrogen (grass) to promote optimal decomposition. Materials such as kitchen scraps or twigs will decompose faster with increased surface area, so break them into smaller pieces when possible. Also, to avoid unpleasant odors and vermin, never put red meat or poultry in your composter. Check out the lists below for things you can add to your compost, as well as things you should avoid.

Items you CAN compost

NITROGEN (GREEN, WET)
• Grass clippings • Weeds
• Vegetables
• Leftover fruit
• Coffee grounds and filters • Tea bags
• Eggshells

CARBON (DRY, BROWN)
• Dead leaves • Hay or straw • Corn stalks
• Sawdust
• Dried and brown grass clippings • Newspaper*
• Cardboard soiled with food*
*Grate and add in small amounts

Items you should not compost at home

• Grease or oil
• Dead animals
• Sick plants
• Fat food
• Any meat or bones
• Human and/or domestic animal waste • Treated wood
• Coal
• Plants treated with pesticides • Weeds with seeds

Step 3
Water your bin/pile as needed to maintain a moisture level similar to that of a wrung out sponge.

Step 4
Compost needs air to decompose. Turning the compost makes it easier to break down the materials and helps prevent potential odors.

Step 5
When the compost is complete, it should look and smell like rich soil. This means it is ready to use for your garden, flower beds, potted plants and lawn.

The Washington Capitals will bring back their “Screaming Eagle” Logo next season, according to a Twitter account with a history of correctly reporting Capitals uniform news well in advance.

The oft-forgotten logo from nearly 30 years ago would return through a black version of the Caps mid to late 1990s uniform set, to be worn as the club’s Reverse Retro option during the 2022-23 season. This news is courtesy of the graphic designer Lucas Daitchman, who tweeted (and confirmed) it according to one of his “Capitals sources”. The report follows a Youtube video from February saying the eagle would return, but had no color information at the time.

Normally we wouldn’t put much stock into an otherwise unverifiable source string (and please note that SportsLogos.Net hasn’t been able to confirm the report yet) but Daitchman has a good track record with this stuff. He had previously correctly predicted the general design of the Caps reverse mirrors in 2020-21 and again with their navy blue alternate “W” uniforms, both before their release, and both courtesy of that same unnamed Washington Capitals source. It is certainly plausible that what is reported here could end up being accurate.

The future design that is being reported is believed to be a hybrid of the Capitals’ alternate (later road) white and black uniforms of the late 1990s and early 2000s. the soaring eagle of the house whites mixed with the black (and tan?) color scheme of road/alternative blacks. The black uniforms of the time placed Caps secondary Capitol Dome logo on chest and were worn as a full-time home uniform during Alex Ovechkin’s rookie season.

The NHL and Adidas are set to bring back the Reverse Retro uniform program for a second season this fall, it made his debut in the pandemic-shortened 2020-21 campaign before taking a year off (we’ll assume due to “global supply chain” issues) for the current 2021-22 season.
