    The House of Representatives passed legislation to keep the government funded until Dec. 16, sending the bill to President Joe Biden's desk hours before an Oct. 1 deadline. The continuing resolution cleared the lower chamber 230-201 in a largely party-line vote on Friday, the House's last legislative day before lawmakers head home for October to campaign in the midterm elections. The Senate comfortably passed the bill on Thursday. Congress will need to revisit government funding again in the lame duck session after the Nov. 8 elections. MANCHIN AND SCHUMER DROP PERMITTING REFORM, CLEARING WAY FOR STOPGAP SPENDING BILL Energy permitting reforms backed by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) had threatened to derail the stopgap spending bill after garnering bipartisan opposition, but Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) dropped it from the legislation Tuesday. Though Republicans typically support measures that bolster domestic energy production, they saw it as a concession from Schumer to Manchin that bought his crucial vote on the Biden-backed Inflation Reduction Act. Progressives opposed it over environmental concerns. In the...
    (CNN)The state of Alabama halted the execution of an inmate Thursday evening due to an inability to meet protocols before a midnight deadline, officials say.Alan Eugene Miller was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection after a US Supreme Court ruling earlier Thursday vacated a lower court injunction. But officials were unable to access Miller's veins within certain time limits, according to AL.com. "Due to the time constraints resulting in the lateness of the court proceedings, the execution was called off once it was determined the condemned's veins could not be accessed in accordance with our protocol before the expiration of the death warrant," said Alabama Department of Corrections Commissioner John Hamm, according to AL.com. Miller has been returned to his cell on death row, Hamm said.

    Xi Jinping, vice president of China, left, meets with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington, D.C., Feb. 14, 2012.Chip Somodevilla | Bloomberg | Getty Images WASHINGTON — The Biden administration faces a legal deadline at midnight to defend former President Donald Trump's China tariffs, even as the White House considers scaling them back to lower consumer prices and ease inflation.  Scores of companies sued the Trump administration in September 2020, arguing the process of implementing a third and fourth tranche of tariffs on roughly $350 billion in goods was overly broad and hastily implemented. If the Biden administration, having inherited the suit, cannot prove the legitimacy of the tariffs or the process, it may be forced to re-evaluate tens of thousands of public comments on the tax penalties, or reimburse the parties for what they've paid. "The stakes are significant," says Alex Schaefer, international trade partner at Crowell, who represents some of the importers. Schaefer says the government lacks the manpower to process the volume of  comments, and refunding importers could cost...
    Hundreds of Ukrainian refugees now gathered in Mexico face a deadline of midnight on Sunday to safely cross into the US, before the Biden administration closes the border to them and forces them to apply for asylum online from Europe. Under a new program, the US says it will streamline refugee applications for Ukrainians and others fleeing the fighting, but will no longer routinely grant entry to those who show up at the U.S.-Mexico border seeking asylum.  Meanwhile, volunteers in Tijuana tell DailyMail.com that they expect a chaotic situation on Sunday, with Ukrainians arriving on flights booked well in advance and rushing to make it to the border before it is sealed at midnight.  'I'm pretty sure there's going to be a lot of crying and sad faces, because many people won't cross,' one volunteer helping refugees said in an interview. Co-Founder of United For Ukraine Anastasia Bolo told DailyMail.com that the last bus for the border will leave at 8pm, and that refugees flying into the city later in the day will likely end up stuck in Mexico. 'Of...
    JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Locked-out players and Major League Baseball engaged in a series of intense meetings that stretched into early Tuesday morning as they attempted to forge the path to a labor deal before management’s deadline for salvaging opening day on March 31. The sides met nearly a dozen times Monday, and negotiations carried on past midnight as the lockout reached its 90th day. They made progress toward an agreement but remained very far apart on key issues.

    The Senate passed a bill Thursday night that will fund the federal government until February 18, sending it to President Joe Biden's desk a full day before the government would have shut down.  The final vote was 69 to 28, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and 18 other Republicans joining Democrats to keep the government open.    After the House passed the same bill, 221-212, with just one Republican, retiring Rep. Adam Kinzinger voting alongside the Democratic majority earlier Thursday evening, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer arrived on the floor to announce the upper chamber had a deal.  'I am pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached between Democrats and Republicans that will allow the Senate to take up and pass the continuing resolution to fund the government through February 18,' Schumer said. 'With this agreement there will be no government shutdown.' The deal hatched in the Senate allowed for a vote on a single amendment, the Lee-Marshall amendment, which would defund Biden's vaccine mandate.     That amendment vote failed, with 48 voting to defund the vaccine mandate and...
    The Philadelphia Eagles held on to Fletcher Cox, and actually added to their defense at the trade deadline thanks to the Broncos. Cox showed tremendous gratitude to Philly fans after the Eagles chose to hold on to the longtime defensive lineman on Instagram. The vet clearly loves being in Philadelphia, and Eagles fans love him back. Sure, the Eagles aren’t necessarily close to contention, but for general manager Howie Roseman to punt on him for a mid-round draft pick would be a curious decision. Looks like Fletcher Cox is staying put in Philly. ???? pic.twitter.com/RMxKvB4SfH — theScore (@theScore) November 2, 2021 The Eagles did add to their secondary, however, courtesy of the Broncos. Philadelphia acquired cornerback Kary Vincent, Jr. for a sixth-round draft pick, per Tom Pelissero.Eagles add before trade deadlineVincent, Jr. has been inactive for all eight Broncos games so far this season, but the Eagles clearly see something in him.

    The Senate on Thursday afternoon voted to pass a continuing resolution to keep government funded past an expiring midnight deadline – moving on trouble spot down the road as Congress confronts a series of obstacles. The Senate voted 65-35 to pass the measure, which now goes to the House, where is expected to pass and ultimately reach President Joe Biden's desk.  The bill keeps the government open under prior-year spending levels until December 3. But it does nothing to raise the statutory debt ceiling, with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warning the government will run out of 'extraordinary measures' on October 18, risking a potential default. The stopgap bill also includes $29 billion in disaster relief for states battered by Hurricane Ida and other disasters. It also provides funds to resettle and support Afghans who fled their home country during the chaotic US withdrawal ad the end of the 20-year US war. Thousands of migrants are being held at military bases and in third countries, with many to be resettled in the US.      'This is a good outcome, one I´m happy...
    (CNN)Government funding expires at midnight and Congress has not yet passed a stopgap funding bill to avert a shutdown, though Democratic leaders are on track to do so later Thursday.Lawmakers are racing the clock with the Senate and House both expected to vote to approve a short-term funding patch to keep the government open. Democrats, who control both chambers of Congress, have so far projected confidence that a shutdown will not occur, but with the deadline rapidly approaching, lawmakers have no room for error. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Wednesday evening that an agreement had been reached, paving the way for a Thursday vote in the chamber on a continuing resolution, which keeps the government funded at current levels for a set time period. Here are the key dates to watch: Thursday: Government funding expires at midnight, which could trigger a shutdown. Mid-October: The government reaches its borrowing limit, which could trigger a first-ever US default and a self-inflicted economic crisis if the US is unable to pay all its bills on time. It could delay federal payments,...
    Jerusalem (CNN)A coalition of Israeli opposition parties were approaching a midnight deadline on Wednesday to form a government, in the most serious challenge yet to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's rule. The idea that Israel's longest-serving leader could be unseated became a reality on Sunday, when Naftali Bennett, leader of the small right-wing party Yamina, confirmed he was working toward a coalition agreement with Yair Lapid, leader of the centrist party Yesh Atid. Under the country's election laws, the president can give a party leader 28 days to form a coalition. President Reuven Rivlin had tasked Netanyahu to form a government after the vote, but the Prime Minister was unable to command enough support to control Israel's parliament, the Knesset. ​The president then tasked Lapid with forming a government, with the deadline of midnight Wednesday.

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faced a midnight deadline on Tuesday to put together a new coalition government — or be looking at the possibility of leading his Likud party into the opposition for the first time in 12 years. Netanyahu has struggled to secure a parliamentary majority since March 23 — when elections ended in deadlock for the fourth consecutive time in the past two years. Despite repeated meetings with many of his rivals and unprecedented outreach to the leader of a small Islamist Arab party, Netanyahu has not been able to close a deal during a four-week window. That window was to expire at midnight, at which point the matter returns to President Reuven Rivlin in the absence of an agreement. A failure to reach a deal would not immediately push Netanyahu out of office. Rivlin could give him an additional two weeks to form a coalition. He could give one of Netanyahu’s opponents an opportunity to form a government, or in a final move of desperation, send the matter straight to parliament. That would...
    David Frost and his co-negotiator Michel Barnier have been given until midnight tonight – Shutterstock Brexit negotiations are continuing as EU and UK officials scurry to complete a trade deal before today’s deadline. MEPS told Michel Barnier last week that he and David Frost’s teams had until midnight tonight (Sunday) to get a deal, or they would refuse to ratify it.  However a extraordinary session has been scheduled for December 28, suggesting today’s red line could turn pink yet again.  Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, told Sky News that talks could now run until Christmas.  He said: “Talks are continuing. The EU have put in a deadline of having them concluded by Christmas. We want a positive conclusion, but unfortunately the EU have put in some unreasonable demands.” ​Follow the latest updates below. 10:36 AM Britain and EU can agree ‘mini’ deals to ease chaos of no-deal, says Michael Gove Britain and the European Union can agree on a series of “mini unilateral” deals to ease any chaos if no trade deal can be agreed by the end of this month,...
    The House Friday passed a measure to keep the government funded until Sunday at midnight. The legislation will provide Republican and Democratic leaders additional time to hammer out final differences in a coronavirus aid package they plan to bundle with 2021 government spending legislation. Government funding runs out at midnight, so the vote is on track to happen in the Senate later Friday night. Senate Majority Whip John Thune, a South Dakota Republican, told reporters in the Capitol Friday the Senate would attempt to pass the bill by voice vote, but there may be objections from lawmakers in both parties. It’s not clear whether the stopgap funding bill can pass the Senate in time to avert at least a brief government shutdown. Sen. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican said he would object to fast passage of the bill unless virus aid negotiators assure him a new round of stimulus checks are included in virus aid package. Hawley is seeking $1,200 checks for some individuals and families, while the deal likely includes $700 checks. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont Independent who...

              A federal Judge extended Virginia’s voter registration deadline Wednesday morning after the system experienced statewide outages from a severed fiber cable on Tuesday. The deadline for Virginians to register to vote is now Thursday at 11:59 p.m. On Tuesday evening, litigation was filed by a lawyer representing the New Virginia Majority, Virginia Civic Engagement Table and the League of Women Voters of Virginia seeking emergency injunctive relief on the claims that voters’ rights were violated when they were unable to register before the deadline. The lawsuit was brought against the Virginia Department of Elections (VDOE) and Virginia State Board of Elections and Commissioners. Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, whose office represented the defendants, posted a photo to Twitter Tuesday night of a brief he filed asking the court to extend the deadline. Herring wrote: “We need to make up for the time lost today. We have 21 days until the most important election of our lifetimes and I want to make sure every eligible Virginian who wants to vote can.” ????BREAKING???? Ive filed...
    Photo via DeSanti/FacebookThe state of Florida has extended the voter registration deadline after a series of errors and glitches hit RegisterToVoteFlorida.org Monday night.  Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee announced today that the window to register will now be extended to 7 p.m. today for both online applications and in-person registration. “This morning I met with Governor DeSantis to brief him on the status of the online voter registration system and the difficulties we encountered last night due to unprecedented volume and traffic to our website. We are working with local Supervisors of Elections and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to ensure that all eligible registrants have the ability to submit a voter registration application by 7:00 p.m. this evening,” said Secretary Laurel M. Lee in a statement.  The announcement comes after Florida residents attempting to register for the election were met with a series of error messages ahead of the midnight deadline. Lee also said her department is working with federal and state law enforcement to determine whether the errors were an honest...
    Washington (CNN)The Senate is on track to vote Wednesday to approve a stopgap spending bill in order to avert a government shutdown just hours before a midnight deadline when funding is set to expire.A scheduled vote has not yet been locked in, but the spending bill, which would keep the government funded through December 11, is nevertheless expected to pass the upper chamber ahead of the deadline. The measure was approved by the House last week by a wide margin and cleared a procedural huddle to advance in the Senate on Tuesday with an overwhelming vote of 82-6.If the Senate approves the bill and President Donald Trump signs it into law before midnight, the measure will take the threat of a shutdown prior to the November presidential election off the table, even as it sets up the possibility of a funding fight and potential shutdown after the election and just before the start of a new Congress.The continuing resolution, while far short of bipartisan full-year funding bills, is the product of bipartisan negotiation and an agreement between House Speaker Nancy...
    Ellise Shafer September 13, 2020 2:58AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Variety. Rapper Kanye West missed the deadline to appear on the Wisconsin presidential ballot by 14 seconds, and a judge has upheld the decision to keep him off the ballot. Judge John Zakowski ruled in favor of the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Friday night, effectively keeping West off the ballot in the state. He had filed a lawsuit against the WEC over the previous decision to bar him from the ballot because his nomination papers were submitted 14 seconds after the 5 p.m. deadline on Aug. 4, according to the Green Bay Press Gazette. : Read more from Variety: Legendary reggae singer Toots Hibbert, frontman of the Maytals, dies at 77 Zakowski agreed that West was late in filing his paperwork, writing in the decision, "The court believes at the time a grandfather clock rings out five times is the moment it is 5 p.m. Any time after that is precisely that: after 5 p.m. The court used the analogy of midnight.

Circuit court magistrate Judge John Zakowski reportedly ruled: "The court believes at the time a grandfather clock rings out five times is the moment it is 5 p.m. Any time after that is precisely that: after 5 p.m." He went on to write: "The court used the analogy of midnight. There is significant difference between 11:59:59 p.m. and one second after midnight. The passage of a second after midnight confers an entirely new day."
