Ride share companies Lyft and Uber, fielding requests from states and municipalities, are highlighting this gap in lobbying efforts aimed at President-elect Joe Biden's incoming administration, and offering “free rides.” But someone has to pay for them. Zane is helping stand up vaccination rollouts across the state, from clinics and drive-throughs to mass vaccination centers and “pop-up” clinics. Uber has also already delivered nurses with flu vaccination kits, under its Uber Health initiative. Spokesman Andrew Hasbun said the ride share company was exploring possible partnerships to do the same for the coronavirus vaccination effort. “Anything that helps to close the gaps,” Goldsby said in email to NBC News of the ride share companies' efforts.

One House freshman is pushing to carry firearms on Capitol grounds, and another recounts being armed during the attack, further putting their colleagues on edge. But, Beyer said, the issue "that has the greater emotional impact is the sense that there's perhaps actual physical danger from our colleagues." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has said she feared for her life, in part because she doubted the motives of unnamed colleagues who were sheltering with her. But she and over 30 other Democrats have signed on to a letter asking authorities to investigate the claim. The article also misstated what chamber of Congress the attacker of a Northern senator before the Civil War was from.

President-elect Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan expands the Child Tax Credit to include $3,600 yearly benefits for families with children under the age of 6. The child and dependent care tax credit will also be expanded, covering half the cost of childcare up to $4,000 for one child. In addition, this credit will be "fully refundable," meaning that taxpayers will get a refund check even if the tax credit is greater than their tax liability. "We are facing an acute, immediate child care crisis in America, which is exacerbating our economic crisis," Biden said in a statement. As with the Child Tax Credit, this credit will be fully refundable, as well, further assisting low-income families.

ET Live Updates: Police Investigating Whether Lawmakers Gave Mob Members Tour of Capitol Before Riot The Capitol Police are looking into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of last week’s assault. That means the trial will not effectively start until after Mr. Biden is sworn in on Wednesday, officials involved in the planning said. The latter option may be more appealing to Mr. Biden, but it could undercut Democrats’ argument that Congress must move urgently to impeach and try Mr. Trump. Speaking from Delaware on Thursday to introduce his sweeping economic plan, Mr. Biden urged lawmakers to come together and pass additional relief. Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud.

NASA announced Thursday that 2020 was likely the planet's hottest year on record, edging out 2016 by one-tenth of a degree Celsius. Still, the data may help explain why the climate crisis surged to new heights in 2020, particularly in the US. Scientists can't say whether an individual storm or fire was directly caused by climate change, since many factors contribute to each event. Some studies have linked the warming climate to the now-familiar arrival of the polar vortex at temperate latitudes. The center of the continental US, meanwhile, endured record storms, floods, and tornado swarms.

But Mr. Lindell’s ability to walk into the Oval Office and meet with Mr. Trump underscored the type of conspiracy theorists who still appeal to Mr. Trump, so long as they are saying what he wants to hear.

Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud. Lawmakers hid under their desks from violent protesters after President Trump encouraged them during a rally to head to the Capitol.

North Dakota and West Virginia lead the nation, having administered more than 65% of distributed doses. "The biggest thing that we've done is backed away from the (federal) standardized program," West Virginia Governor Jim Justice told CNN. "We have instead partnered with all the pharmacies in West Virginia. By acting independently, West Virginia started vaccinating in long-term care facilities about a week before other states started. Notably, many of the states administering their vaccine distributions most efficiently are among the most rural states in the country.

U.S. airlines back Biden plan to mandate masks for passengers

REUTERS/Kevin Mohatt/File PhotoWASHINGTON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - A group representing major U.S. airlines on Thursday backed President-elect Joe Biden’s plan to mandate face coverings for all air passengers, but asked him to give them flexibility in enforcing it. “Thousands of passengers have been barred to date,” the letter to Biden read, saying it hopes the Democrat applies the legal requirement to airports as well. The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which has demanded a federal face covering mandate since early in the pandemic, said the mandate would provide one standard across U.S. aviation and back up flight attendants and other airline workers who must enforce compliance. Biden in October said he would mandate masks in all interstate U.S. transportation and he has recently reiterated that plan. The Biden transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

A YouGov survey of 1,500 US citizens found that 30% of self-identified Republicans have a favorable view of "QAnon." QAnon is a baseless far-right conspiracy theory that claims President Donald Trump is secretly fighting a "deep state" cabal of satanic pedophiles and cannibals. A December NPR/Ipsos survey found that 23% of Republicans believe in the baseless conspiracy theory. A new poll from YouGov found that around 30% of self-identified Republicans have a favorable view of QAnon, the baseless far-right conspiracy theory that claims President Donald Trump is secretly fighting a "deep state" cabal of satanic pedophiles and cannibals. But according to the survey, 30% of GOP voters who say they have a positive response to the conspiracy theory, which represents a sizable bloc of the party.

Starting last week, US officials began allowing states to transfer coronavirus vaccine from hospitals to local retail pharmacies to speed up immunizations. At least one state, New York, will begin administering those transferred doses to elderly Americans on Thursday. The immunizations mark the beginning of a much wider vaccine rollout in pharmacies across the US. To assist with this process, Warp Speed allowed states to transfer doses that were sitting in freezers at hospitals to local retail pharmacies. States can continue to transfer shots moving forward, she added, with doses being moved to pharmacies on Thursdays each week.

Legal experts said disqualification could be accomplished through the impeachment proceedings or the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. WHAT ABOUT THE 14TH AMENDMENT? Section 3 of the 14th Amendment provides an alternative path for disqualification. The text of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment does not explain how it should be invoked. “The 14th Amendment route is very unclear as to what it would take to get it rolling,” said Kalt.

Julian Zelizer, a political historian at Princeton University, said the public reaction to officials’ participation is to be expected.

Two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Klete Keller was among the crowd of President Donald Trump's supporters inside the U.S. Capitol during last week's insurrection, according to reports. The New York Times and Washington Post said they spoke to former teammates and coaches who identified the man in the video as Keller. Keller, 38, has not publicly commented on his alleged participation at the Capitol, which was first reported by the swimming website SwimSwam. After stepping away from the sport, Keller worked as an independent contractor for Hoff & Leigh, a real estate agency in Colorado Springs. Last Wednesday, hundreds of pro-Trump supporters breached the Capitol in protest of the Electoral College vote affirming President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the November election.
