Voting rights activists gather during a protest against Texas legislators who are advancing a slew of new voting restrictions in Austin, Texas, U.S., May 8, 2021. Republican-controlled legislatures in six competitive states have passed bills that voting rights advocates have denounced as partisan power grabs. "I've never seen .... such an outward assault on voting rights. Biden has tapped Vice President Kamala Harris to lead a national charge aimed at protecting voting rights. "Voting rights are under assault."

Voting rights activists gather during a protest against Texas legislators who are advancing a slew of new voting restrictions in Austin, Texas, U.S., May 8, 2021. Warnock said Manchin's ideas were "very significant" because they could unite the 48 Senate Democrats and two independents, boosting chances for passing a bill. Republican Senator Mike Lee said he believed the voting rights bill would hurt his party's electoral chances: "This bill isn't about strengthening democracy. Senate Democrats' first preference would be to pass a version of the "For the People" bill approved by the House of Representatives in March. Manchin, a former West Virginia state election official, has proposed revisions that include requiring voters to prove their identities.

(Reuters) - The eight leading candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for New York City mayor exchanged jabs on Wednesday over public safety, housing and homelessness at the final televised debate before Tuesday’s primary election. Adams piled on, calling Yang’s plan “Monopoly money.”Much of the debate’s early clashes focused on public safety, which has been the No. 1 issue during the campaign thanks to a spike in violent crime around the city. Adams, Yang and former sanitation chief Kathryn Garcia, considered more moderate candidates, have proposed beefing up the police department in response. Adams, Wiley, Garcia and Yang are widely seen as the top four candidates, based on public polling.

Until November, GM (GM.N) backed the Trump administration's effort to block California from setting tougher emissions standards than the federal government. Representatives Dan Kildee, Bill Pascrell and Earl Blumenauer, all Democrats, pressed GM to answer questions about potential abuses in Mexico. "We want to see some real demonstration of embracing the labor standards in Mexico -- more than compliance," Kildee told Reuters after the meeting. The suggestions "would be tangible demonstrations of GM's commitment to lead on compliance with the new labor standards," Kildee told Reuters. Earlier Wednesday, some House lawmakers on a trade panel, including Kildee, had a virtual meeting with Mexico’s ambassador to the United States in which the GM labor issued was raised.

US President Donald Trump speaks at an event honoring Bay of Pigs veterans in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC on September 23, 2020. In his final days in office, former President Donald Trump pressured top Department of Justice officials to challenge his election loss to President Joe Biden, the House Oversight Committee said Tuesday. The documents show, among other allegations, that Trump in December pressed the Justice Department to file a Supreme Court lawsuit to nullify the election, the committee said. The dump of new materials came hours before the Oversight Committee was set to hold its second hearing on the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol invasion. The committee has also requested transcribed interviews with Mark Meadows, Trump's White House chief of staff at the time, along with four Justice Department officials.

Signage is seen at the Federal Trade Commission headquarters in Washington, D.C., U.S., August 29, 2020. REUTERS/Andrew KellyRepublican Senators Mike Lee and Chuck Grassley introduced a bill on Tuesday that would move all antitrust enforcement to the Justice Department, stripping the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission of antitrust authority, Lee's office said on Monday. The Justice Department's Antitrust Division and the FTC currently divide up the work of antitrust enforcement, with the FCC weighing in on telecommunications deals. The bill would increase the budget of the Justice Department's Antitrust Division to $600 million. That is sharply higher than the Biden administration proposal for the next fiscal year that would give the FTC $389.8 million and the Antitrust Division $201 million.

The U.S. Constitution gives the power to declare war to Congress. A handful of members of Congress have been pushing for years to repeal, and possibly replace, the authorizations.

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration’s long-awaited review of tariff policy can’t come soon enough for an Ohio bedding maker, which says it is being pummeled by U.S. levies on imported Chinese feathers. The family-owned business, Down-lite International Inc., won an exclusion from import tariffs last spring after arguing that there are few other places besides China where it can get the feathers it needs to stuff its quilts, comforters and other bedding. The exclusions that were granted to Down-lite and thousands of other U.S. companies expired by late last year, however, and the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office says it won’t consider granting new exclusions until it completes a top-to-bottom review of tariffs on these and other Chinese imports imposed by the Trump administration. Meanwhile, no tariffs were ever imposed on many of the finished bedding products from China—such as down-filled comforters and quilts, mattress pads, feather beds and sleeping bags—putting Down-lite at a disadvantage to its Chinese competitors in many of the company’s key products. “It’s basically just helping the Chinese right now while hurting U.S. manufacturing,” said Josh Werthaiser, president of Down-lite’s feather and down division.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai will travel to Britain on Wednesday and hold talks with British trade minister Elizabeth Truss after participating in a U.S.-European Union summit and holding several bilateral meetings, her office said. On Wednesday, Tai will travel to London and hold bilateral meetings with British trade secretary Elizabeth Truss before returning to the United States, USTR said. The White House has said it will put new trade deals on hold until it has reviewed Trump’s trade policies. Britain and the United States had started talks on a bilateral free trade deal under Trump, but failed to reach an accord before Biden took office. UK ambassador Karen Pierce told Reuters that U.S. officials were supportive of a free trade deal with Britain, but the timing was unclear given other U.S. domestic priorities.

WASHINGTON—President Biden revoked executive orders targeting the Chinese-owned TikTok and WeChat apps initiated by former President Donald Trump and signed a new order requiring security reviews of these and other apps in the jurisdiction of foreign adversaries. U.S. officials have maintained that TikTok, WeChat and other Chinese-owned apps collect data that could be shared with China’s authoritarian government. The Wall Street Journal reported in February that the Biden administration had shelved the Trump administration’s plan to force a sale of TikTok amid legal challenges. The action is the latest sign of the Biden administration’s emerging China policy, which represents a tougher approach acknowledging Beijing’s economic and geopolitical strength. Notably, the Biden administration plans to seek more involvement of other friendly countries in its efforts to police data practices of apps based in potentially unfriendly countries.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will also release non-binding guidance on how other businesses can protect workers, Walsh told a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives Education and Labor Committee. During the Trump administration, OSHA rejected calls by unions, Democrats and worker advocates for a rule that would apply to most employers. Instead, the agency issued a series of non-binding guidance documents tailored to different industries. He said the guidance would apply to the treatment of workers who have not received COVID-19 vaccines.

The law signed by Governor Phil Scott makes permanent a universal mail-in voting system that Vermont adopted in 2020 to address the challenges to voting in person during the COVID-19 pandemic. It puts Vermont in the company of just six other U.S. states that automatically mail ballots to all eligible voters. Pending bills to expand early voting and voter identification options in Louisiana and Indiana, both states Trump handily carried in November, also have Republican support. Sweren-Becker said the voting expansions in both states and Vermont reflect the fact that none of the states are highly competitive in general elections.
