    Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake blasted her Democrat opponent, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, for taking a week to reject a referendum to stop Arizona’s universal Empowerment Scholarship Account law from going into effect, despite evidence already showing the motion failed. “It is shameful that Katie Hobbs aligned herself with the radical unions’ effort to permanently trap Arizona’s kids in failing schools, then hung Arizona’s parents out to dry for a week by suspending the school choice program despite overwhelming evidence the referendum failed to get enough signatures,” Lake said in a statement to The Arizona Sun Times. “Katie Hobbs is on the side of corrupt, bloated school bureaucracies, but I will never stop fighting to give Arizona’s parents more choice in their children’s schools and more control over their children’s education.” The news broke Friday that House Bill (HB) 2853, the universal ESA law, was saved from the 2024 ballot. A letter from the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office (SOSO) confirmed that the organization behind the referendum, Save Our Schools Arizona (SOSAZ), did not submit enough signatures. “While...
    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Democrats vowed Saturday to fight for women's rights after a court reinstated a law first enacted during the Civil War that bans abortion in nearly all circumstances, looking to capitalize on an issue they hope will have a major impact on the midterm elections. Republican candidates were silent a day after the ruling, which said the state can prosecute doctors and others who assist with an abortion unless it's necessary to save the mother's life. Kari Lake, the GOP candidate for governor, and Blake Masters, the Senate candidate, did not comment. Katie Hobbs and Kris Mayes, the Democratic nominees for governor and attorney general, implored women not to sit on the sidelines this year, saying the ruling sets them back more than a century to an era when only men had the right to vote. "We cannot let (Lake) hold public office and have the power to enact extreme anti-choice policies that she's spent her entire campaign touting," Hobbs said during a news conference outside the attorney general's office. "As Arizona's governor I will do everything...
    by Trevor Schakohl   Arizona’s Pima County Superior Court lifted an injunction Friday that had prevented enforcement of a state ban on abortion unless necessary to save a mother’s life, allowing the law to go into effect. The court declared the state measure, now called Arizona Criminal Code § 13-3603, unconstitutional within weeks of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. After Roe v. Wade’s June reversal, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich motioned the Pima County Superior Court to remove the decades-old injunction against enforcing the statute. “A Pima County judge lifted an injunction that was placed on AZ’s abortion statute,” Brnovich tweeted Friday. “We applaud the court for upholding the will of the legislature and providing clarity and uniformity on this important issue. I have and will continue to protect the most vulnerable Arizonans.” A Pima County judge lifted an injunction that was placed on AZ’s abortion statute.

    by Bethany Blankley   A new toll discount program will go into effect September 1 to reduce costs for Floridians using the state’s turnpike system and toll facilities to help offset inflation. Florida commuters will be able to take advantage of a new rewards program called “SunPass Savings” when driving on Florida’s Turnpike System and using its toll facilities owned by the Florida Department of Transportation. The savings program is for SunPass customers who use the prepaid electronic toll collection program operated by Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, Florida’s toll agency. The new savings program begins Sept. 1 and will run for six months. It’s estimated to provide $38 million in savings to commuters. The new savings are in addition to the fuel tax holiday scheduled for the month of October that was created by the legislature to help offset rising gas prices. “While the Biden Administration and its legacy media cheerleaders are trying to gaslight people about the economic slowdown, we have seen [President Joe] Biden’s poor economic stewardship and the negative impact it has had on families,” Gov. Ron...
    San Jose’s first-in-the-nation gun insurance mandate was supposed to go into effect this fall, but with three pending lawsuits questioning the law’s constitutionality, city officials now expect the controversial ordinance to be delayed until at least 2023. In January, San Jose became the first city in the U.S. to require its residents to purchase liability insurance for their weapons. The law also mandated a $25 fee to be paid by gun owners to a nonprofit to help cover the cost of gun violence in the city. But shortly after the San Jose City Council’s historic vote, a lawsuit was filed in federal court by the National Association for Gun Rights and San Jose resident Mark Sikes. Two subsequent lawsuits have been filed since. The ordinance was supposed to go into effect August 8 with a 30-day window to allow gun owners to purchase insurance. But on July 1, the city manager’s office suspended the implementation for the foreseeable future, according to a recent city memo. “The landscape is constantly changing on this topic, and litigation may impact both of these,”...
    The Texas Supreme Court reversed a lower court on Friday evening and allowed a pre-Roe 1925 law prohibiting abortions to go into effect. The state supreme court’s order is the latest addition in an ongoing feud between Texas government officials and abortion providers following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Although the 1925 law prohibiting abortions was not enforced after Roe was decided in 1973, the law remained on the books. A Harris County judge temporarily blocked the abortion ban after abortion clinics sued. The abortion clinics argued the law was effectively repealed when the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, but the Texas Supreme Court disagreed and allowed the pre-Roe ban to go into effect. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton applauded the court’s decision as a “Pro-life victory!” “Pro-life victory! Thanks to my appeal, SCOTX has slapped down the abortion providers and the district court carrying their water,” Paxton tweeted. “Our state’s pre-Roe statutes banning abortion in Texas are 100% good law. Litigation continues, but I’ll keep winning for Texas’s unborn babies.” Pro-life victory! Thanks to my appeal, SCOTX has slapped down the...
    The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) granted Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s (R) request that pro-life law Senate Bill (SB) 1457 go into effect while litigation moves forward. “I am pleased with today’s ruling and proud to defend Arizona’s law that protects the unborn,” Brnovich said. “The best of any society can be seen in how it treats its most vulnerable.” According to the press release from the attorney general’s office, left-wing groups sued to stop SB 1457 from going into effect after it passed, and Brnovich stepped in to defend it according to the judicial decision that the Constitution in no way protects the right to get an abortion based on genetic test results. “The lawsuit [Brnovich v. Isaacson] remains ongoing at the U.S. District Court of Arizona, and in light of the Supreme Court’s historic Dobbs decision, we are confident that defense will prevail,” according to the press release.

    Get ready for short showers and brown lawns: More than 6 million Southern Californians will be placed under new drought rules today in an unprecedented effort to conserve water. The restrictions are a response to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s urgent call for a 35% reduction in water use following California’s driest-ever start to the year. MWD’s board has never before issued such severe cuts, but said they were left with little recourse after state officials slashed deliveries from the State Water Project to just 5%. “We have not had the supply to meet the normal demands that we have, and now we need to prioritize between watering our lawns and having water for our children and our grandchildren and livelihood and health,” MWD General Manager Adel Hagekhalil said during the agency’s announcement at the end of April. More than 97% of the state is now under severe, extreme or exceptional drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Many of the region’s most critical reservoirs are at half capacity or less. Here’s what you need to...

    MARLTON, N.J. (CBS) — A new law that will change South Jersey families’ shopping habits is just weeks away. The state is starting one of the strictest plastic bag bans in the nation, and stores that don’t follow it could face thousands of dollars in fines. Families will experience the most changes inside their grocery stores, where they must use reusable bags. But like with any law, there are exceptions tucked into the text.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – New rules for spring breakers heading to Miami Beach go into effect Thursday, and one environmental group is gearing up to help keep the beach clean and protect turtles during their nesting season.

    Washington (CNN)The Biden administration is expected to announce on Wednesday that it will allow sanctions to move forward on the company in charge of building Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, after blocking such sanctions last year using a national security waiver.The move, described by three US officials, is part of a series of penalties the US and its allies have imposed on Russia this week in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin's recognition of separatist territories in eastern Ukraine as independent. The administration decided to move forward with rescinding the national security waiver after Germany on Tuesday announced that it was halting the certification of the pipeline, the official said. Sanctioning Nord Stream 2's parent company, Nord Stream 2 AG -- a registered Swiss firm whose parent company is the Russian gas giant Gazprom -- is effectively a death knell to the project, the official added. The move marks a significant shift in the administration's policy toward Nord Stream 2, which had previously been to sanction some of the smaller entities involved in the project, including some Russian companies...
    WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (CBS) — A state of emergency goes into effect at 5 p.m. in New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy spoke Friday about this big storm. “We already expect tough travel conditions and low visibility due to the blowing snow and high winds and those conditions can deteriorate quickly.

Murphy about the state’s storm preparations, later Friday on Eyewitness News at 5 p.m.

    FLORAL PARK, Long Island (WABC) -- It is not a countdown to Christmas - it is the countdown to the newest New York State mask mandate again.Governor Hochul argues returning to masks is about protecting New Yorkers from COVID and its variants, especially heading into the holiday season.In Nassau County where COVID numbers have inched up every day last week, a new mandate will go into effect on Monday - masks for all indoor establishments that don't check for vaccines.I have to protect people but also the economy.

    The Biden administration is preparing to implement a new federal rule that will require companies to have a vaccine mandate for workers. Last month, President Joe Biden asked the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to write rules that would require companies with more than 100 employees to mandate coronavirus vaccinations or weekly testing for those with an exemption. OSHA has finished writing the rule and the administration expects it could go into affect as soon as this week, CBS News reported. The rule will require employers to provide paid time to workers to get vaccinated and to recover from any side effects.  But business leaders are asking the administration to put off the mandate until after the holidays.

    Texas can continue banning most abortions after a federal appeals court rejected the Biden administration’s latest attempt to stop a novel law that has become the nation’s biggest curb to abortion in nearly 50 years.  The decision Thursday could push the law closer to returning to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has already once allowed the restrictions to take effect without ruling on its constitutionality. The Texas law bans abortions once cardiac activity is detected, usually around six weeks and before some women know they are pregnant.  Since the law took effect in early September, Texas women have sought out abortion clinics in neighboring states, some driving hours through the middle of the night and including patients as young as 12 years old. The law makes no exception in cases of rape or incest.  Demonstrators pray and protest outside of a Whole Women's Health of North Texas on Oct. 1 in McKinney, Texas.  (AP Photo/Brandon Wade) TEXAS CLINICS CANCEL ABORTIONS AFTER COURT REINSTATES BAN  "We hope the Department of Justice urgently appeals this order to the Supreme Court to restore Texans’ ability to...
    A new Connecticut law requiring all vehicle passengers to wear seat belts is set to go into effect later this week. Beginning Friday, Oct. 1, all passengers will be required to buckle up, including those in the back seat of the vehicle, Gov. Ned Lamont said. The previous law only required rear-seat passengers under the age of 16 to buckle their seat belts.  “Connecticut was one of the first states to pass a mandatory seat belt law more than 30 years ago, however it only applied to drivers and front-seat passengers,” Lamont said in a statement. “I applaud and recognize the efforts of those lawmakers and safety advocates who pushed for passage of this lifesaving measure for more than 20 years. With this new law, passengers and drivers in Connecticut will be safer.” Lamont said about 12,589 passengers in the back seat have been injured, and 61 have died in Connecticut between 2017 and 2020.  Under the new law, drivers can't be pulled over because of an unbelted adult in the back seat, but law enforcement can issue fines if the...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Thursday pledged to bring a bill codifying the Supreme Court abortion decision Roe v. Wade to the House floor in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to allow a Texas abortion law to go into effect. "When we go back to Washington, we will be putting Roe v. Wade codification on the floor of the House, to make sure that women everywhere have access to the reproductive health that they need," Pelosi said in a news conference. The Texas law, signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in May, prohibits abortions once medical professionals can detect cardiac activity, usually around six weeks and before many women know they’re pregnant. The court voted 5-4 to deny an emergency appeal from abortion providers and others to sideline the law while appeals are made, allowing the law to go into effect Wednesday. The judges also suggested that their order likely isn't the last word on whether the law can stand. While some Democrats have renewed their push to pack the Supreme Court in the wake of the ruling,...

    Right-wing Gov. Greg Abbott and that guy at a southern border stunt earlier this summer. Dozens of facilities in Texas where the federal government holds unaccompanied children until they can be safely placed with a sponsor will be forced to operate without state licenses beginning within hours, under an executive order issued by right-wing Gov. Greg Abbott earlier this year. In a letter calling on him to revoke the order, 70 child welfare organizations said his despicable proclamation stands to put thousands of kids “at risk of harm.” “The 70 organizations signed onto the letter believe that every child should be cared for in a way that preserves their health, safety, and dignity—no matter who they are or where they come from,” First Focus on Children said in a statement received by Daily Kos. The organization said that the state accounts for roughly half of all beds for these already vulnerable children. “The organizations are speaking out now against the Texas proclamation and will continue to speak up any time lawmakers promote policies that threaten to harm children.” Abbott had initially sought to completely shut down these facilities,...
    By Neelam Bohra, The Texas Tribune Aug. 29, 2021 "Texas abortion law that bans procedure as early as six weeks set to go into effect after court cancels hearing, denies motions" was first published by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. Sign up for The Brief, our daily newsletter that keeps readers up to speed on the most essential Texas news. A Texas law that would ban abortions after as early as six weeks is poised to take effect Wednesday, after a federal appellate court's rulings stymied efforts to block the law. On Friday night, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals canceled a hearing planned for Monday, at which more than 20 abortion providers had hoped to persuade a federal district court in Austin to block the law from taking effect. Providers have sued to overturn the law, which they say is the nation's strictest and would create what...
    A law that would ban most abortions in Texas is set to go into effect Wednesday after 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals canceled a hearing on the matter that had been planned for Monday, the Texas Tribune reported.  The legislation, signed by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) in May, prohibits abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before many people know when they are pregnant. The measure also allows members of the general public to sue doctors and others they believe violated the law. More than twenty abortion providers had hoped to block the law, which they called “bounty hunting scheme,” from taking effect. It would affect about 90 percent of abortions in the state of Texas that are now being performed, according to data from Whole’s Women Health.  The providers filed an emergency motion Saturday night, asking the appeals court to issue a temporary stay or send the matter back to a lower court. The 5th Circuit denied the request Sunday afternoon. The 5th Circuit Court is considered to be one of the most conservative...

    California will soon implement its own net neutrality law after a judge’s ruling.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After 11:59 p.m. Friday, a more relaxed set of restrictions go into effect as Minnesota continues to deal with the most recent spike in COVID-19 cases. As part of the new restrictions, bars, restaurants, and breweries must remain closed for indoor dining, but can open for limited outdoor service. At the same time, Minnesota health officials are reporting 2,775 more cases of COVID-19 in the state, and 83 additional deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 389,171 total cases in Minnesota, along with 4,658 deaths. Pfizer’s vaccine was given emergency approval in the U.S. late last week. Moderna’s version of the vaccination has yet to be given emergency approval. Health officials say that both versions of the vaccine will require two doses, roughly a month apart. As the Pfizer vaccine continues to be distributed in Minnesota and the state awaits word on approval for the Moderna vaccine, one source of optimism is that COVID-19 hospitalizations have continued to decrease since peaking in early December. The health department says there are about 1,222 patients being...

The agreement was scheduled to be part of the discussion between Wolf and El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele this week, according to the Department of Homeland Security. In the waning days of the Trump presidency, DHS is trying to ramp up agreements to send asylum seekers to Central American countries, plans...

    "An asylum seeker from Guatemala rests his feet near his shoes and makeshift shoelaces at a shelter for migrants who seek asylum on May 16, 2019 in El Paso, Texas. His shoelaces were not returned by border authorities upon his release." Impeached president Donald Trump will be out of office in 40 days—and he’s using every day until then to continue being a xenophobic, jerk of an asshole. The Trump administration has finalized a rule that advocates have previously said “all but guts the American asylum system enacted by Congress decades ago, but without a single act by Congress.” The rule is now set to go into effect just nine days before President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated.  “If enacted, this rule will send countless migrants to certain harm or death,” National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) Executive Director Mary Meg McCarthy said in a statement received by Daily Kos. “The asylum regulations put forth by the Trump administration violate our obligations under U.S. and international law. Amongst a barrage of hostile policies and regulations, these rules are the most comprehensive assault on the right to asylum yet seen.”...
