Finance panel chairman Michele Ford said she would discuss the issue with Town Administrator Thomas Guerino. Guerino, Finance Director Linda Marzelli and selectmen have been routinely advised about how annual audits in the near future will carry post-employment totals as an accounting measure. This is a formal change in upcoming audits. Such pension-accounting impacts have not been included in year-ending financial reporting that scrutinizes and announces the towns overall fiscal condition. Auditor Chris Rogers in late June told all concerned that the time has arrived to familiarize themselves with the new reporting of liabilities, saying once this begins it will plunge Bournes net assets into the negative.

The EIB said it was lending energy company Klaipedos Nafto more than $111 million to help finance the construction and operation of an LNG import facility in the Lithuanian port city of Klaipeda. "This investment is critical for Lithuania to diversify and secure its energy supply as well as provide backup in the event of gas supply failures," the EIB said in a statement. Lithuania and other Eastern European countries are trying to add more diversity to an energy sector dominated by Russia. EIB Vice President Pim van Ballekom said the project would help ensure a sustained supply of natural gas for energy and increase competition in the country's energy sector. The LNG facility will include about 10 miles of pipeline that will connect the terminal to the Lithuanian natural gas grid.

The imperative of housing finance reform is to devise a new system that protects taxpayers against another costly bailout while ensuring that American families have access to mortgages on reasonable terms. Challenges With Reform A key challenge in moving forward with reform is that bringing in private investors who take losses ahead of taxpayers will translate into higher mortgage interest rates, reflecting the compensation demanded by private investors to take on housing credit risk. Indeed, in the past, proponents of reform were sometimes derided as being anti-housing for supposedly wishing for higher interest rates. The crisis has mostly silenced this criticism, with broad agreement that reform must involve greater private capital to take losses ahead of any potential government backstop. The Corker-Warner proposal requires investors to put at risk funds equal to 10 percent of the value of the mortgages included in mortgage-backed securities to be guaranteed by the government. The total losses of Fannie and Freddie during the crisis were equal to about 4 percent of the firms combined assets.
