The amount in state tax breaks Tesla could receive as part of its $3.6 billion expansion of a northern Nevada factory will remain private until late next month due to a nondisclosure agreement between the electric car company and a state board focused on economic development. The Feb. 27 release of the potential tax abatement numbers comes three days before the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development will vote on whether to approve the tax cuts to the electric car-maker. Announced last week, the project will expand an existing operation at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, about 20 miles east of Reno-Sparks.

The Federal Trade Commission has imposed a $1.5 million penalty on telehealth and prescription drug discount provider GoodRx Holdings Inc. for sharing users’ personal health data with Facebook, Google and other third parties without their consent. In a first-of-its-kind enforcement, California-based GoodRx also accepted that it will be prohibited going forward from sharing user health data with third parties for advertising purposes. Consumer protection advocates are hailing Wednesday’s announcement as a potential game-changer that could seriously curtail a little-known phenomenon: The trafficking in sensitive health data by businesses not strictly classified as health care providers.
Elon Musk’s former chief of staff has testified that the billionaire believed he had a “handshake deal” to take Tesla private in 2018. That was shortly before he tweeted he had the financing for an aborted buyout that still is still haunting him in a high-profile trial. The former aide, Sam Teller, detailed that Musk held with representatives from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund during testimony in a trial triggered by a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of Tesla shareholders alleging Musk misled them in August 2018 indicating a buyout of the electric automakers was in the works. A nine-person jury is expected to begin its deliberations Friday.
San Francisco building inspectors have given Twitter’s construction contractor two weeks to submit a corrected building use permit to keep converted bedrooms at headquarters. The correction notice issued Monday from San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspection to Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company asks the contractor to correctly label conference rooms as sleeping areas in a floor plan. The city launched an investigation in December after Forbes reported on the new bedrooms shortly after Elon Musk took ownership of the social media company. The Tesla CEO bought Twitter for $44 billion and started slashing costs. Inaccurately labeled bedrooms appear to be the least of Musk’s problems.

There's been a sharp increase in the number of hate-filled business reviews spotted by Yelp's content moderators. The San Francisco-based company says it proactively removed more than 2,000 such posts last year, up from less than 250 the year before. While some of the content targeted Black, Latino and LGBTQ people, Asian American business owners experienced the worst increase, reflecting the lingering stigma of the COVID-19 pandemic. The increases are a function of Yelp's improved efforts to remove racist content and show how even a site known for reviews of restaurants and repairmen can become ensnared in America’s ongoing battle over online civility.

The Biden administration on Thursday said 15 Native American tribes will get a total of $580 million this year to fund settlements that ensure access to water that's legally theirs. The money will help carry out agreements known as water rights settlements. They define the tribes' rights to water from rivers and other sources and pay for pipelines, pumping stations and canals that deliver it to reservations. Access to reliable, clean water and basic sanitation facilities on tribal lands remains a challenge across many Native American reservations. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1908 that tribes have rights to as much water as they need to establish a permanent homeland.
U.S. health officials say a company is recalling its over-the-counter eye drops that have been linked to an outbreak of drug-resistant infections. The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday the maker of EzriCare Artificial Tears was voluntarily recalling its product after health officials sent a warning to doctors. The outbreak includes at least 55 people in 12 states. One died and at least five others had permanent vision loss. The outbreak is considered worrisome because the bacteria driving it are resistant to standard antibiotics.
