Other highlights from our media monitoring team include the latest intrigues in the ongoing NAFTA negotiations, rising concerns over a lockout of domestic suppliers from Canadian federal procurements, a controversial payroll system sole-source in Nebraska, and blowback over Governor Cuomo’s pay-to-play allegations.
