Three days before the fifth anniversary of the attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation designating the site of the gay club a national memorial. The monument incorporates a reflecting pool and a garden with 49 trees ringing the remains of the nightclub, where an interim memorial currently stands. Initially set for 2022, completion of the museum and memorial has been delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the Sentinel. In February, singer Ricky Martin signed on as national spokesperson for the foundation’s efforts to raise $49 million for the project. In addition to the National Pulse Memorial and Museum, the money would be used for community outreach, educational programs and to establish 49 legacy scholarships.

"Humbled and blessed by the opportunity to serve," West tweeted with a link to the announcement from the Texas GOP that he was stepping down after less than a year on the job. His resignation is effective July 11, when a new chairman will be selected, the Texas GOP said in a news release. The party said West "will take this opportunity to prayerfully reflect on a new chapter in his already distinguished career. West alsosued Abbott in September for expanding early voting in the state, arguing the move enhanced the risk of voter fraud. He was elected Texas GOP chair last July and quickly courted controversy by making the party's motto "We Are the Storm" — which is also a slogan for QAnon conspiracy theorists.

Georgia school officials condemn some teaching about race

It also came on the heels of a letter that the Georgia governor — who appoints the board members — sent last month encouraging them to take such action. The resolution is symbolic and does not impose restrictions on school districts or teachers, though it could lead to binding rules in the future. “This resolution does not prohibit anybody from teaching anything,” board chair Scott Sweeney said during the meeting, which was held over the phone. There is little evidence that the theory is currently being taught to any of Georgia’s 1.7 million public school students. The resolution approved on Thursday also contains more anodyne statements condemning teaching that one race is superior to another or that race-based discrimination is OK.

Lori Freeman, CEO of the county and city health officials group, told NBC News, "To use the politicization of Covid to drive legislative changes doesn’t bode well for our government or for our public health system to address public health emergencies in the future." In Ohio, for example, Republican Gov. Mike DeWine earned early, bipartisan praise for taking the pandemic seriously and aggressively issuing public health orders. In North Dakota, where Republican Gov. He vetoed another that would have required him to clear more hurdles when issuing public health orders affecting schools.

“When a child dies in foster care, the system has failed,” the lawmakers wrote. While Bryant’s killing further heightened tensions in Ohio’s capital city over the fatal police shootings of Black people, her death also cast a light on the state’s foster care system. Among the parts of her foster care experience under scrutiny include Bryant being placed in five different foster homes within two years. “I mean so many questions that have to be answered.”Days after Bryant’s shooting, Franklin County Children Services said it had an obligation to make changes. Requests for comment were sent to HHS, Franklin County Children Services and the state.

If tuition were affordable, they say, students wouldn't be stuck in the vise of debt collection agencies in the first place. Debt collection written into state lawIn some states, the law requires public colleges to use collection agencies if debts go unpaid for too long. Florida allows universities to use debt collection agencies that charge an additional 20 percent to 25 percent on top of the original bill. Debt collection agencies that contract with community colleges in California can add 39 percent. And private debt collection agencies stand to lose millions of dollars if collection efforts are kept in house at the colleges.

Democrats vowed to continue to fight a Texas bill that would add restrictions on voting as Republican Gov. Texas Democrats used every parliamentary tool at their disposal Sunday night to stop the bill, ultimately walking out to prevent a vote before the midnight deadline. Democrats across the country threw their support behind efforts to block the bill as Texas shapes up to be the next battleground over voting rights. The Texas bill, known as Senate Bill 7, passed the Senate along party lines early Sunday after an all-night debate. Democratic state Rep. Nicole Collier, chairwoman of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus, said the change would "disengage, disenfranchise those who use the souls-to-the-polls opportunity."

But after hours of debate and delaying tactics, the chamber adjourned after Democratic lawmakers left in protest, breaking quorum and ending debate. The sweeping bill would ban drive-thru voting, limit voting hours, make it more difficult to cast mail ballots and empower partisan poll watchers. 7 is the result of a bicameral group of mostly Republican lawmakers reconciling proposals previously passed by both chambers. “The voices of Texans were not heard in this debate,” state Rep. John Bucy III said. But Republican state Rep. Travis Clardy said lawmakers who back the measures had done their “level best” to be transparent and release information.

Opinion | To Motivate Workers, Republican Governors Experiment With Pain

Beginning June 27, the state will reduce weekly payments to unemployed workers by $300, cutting off a federal subsidy that was scheduled to run through early September. This struck other Republican governors as such a good idea that 23 other states have since announced plans to follow Montana’s example. States administer unemployment benefits because racist Southern senators in the 1930s and the 1940s prevented the creation of a federal system. Almost a century later, Southern states still operate the stingiest unemployment programs. In recent years, for example, unemployed workers in New Jersey have been roughly five times as likely to qualify for jobless benefits as those in North Carolina.

Steve Bannon has a new MAGA megaphone, and Republicans eager to shine in a party still tethered to former President Donald Trump know it. With Fox News losing favor among Trump’s most diehard fans, "War Room" appears to be gaining steam as a safe space for the far right. Nevertheless, Bannon has had little trouble booking guests, from MAGA celebrities such as the MyPillow creator to veteran lawmakers and candidates. As multiple candidates in Ohio's GOP Senate primary seek to tie themselves closely to the former president, Bannon has welcomed former state party leader Jane Timken and former state treasurer Josh Mandel. "'War Room' is the tip of the spear of the MAGA movement," Greitens said in a statement provided by his campaign.

But the bill must still clear a final vote in the Texas House later Sunday in order to reach Republican Gov. Texas is the last big battleground in the GOP's nationwide efforts to tighten voting laws, driven by former President Donald Trump's false claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him. Georgia and Florida have also passed new voting restrictions, and President Joe Biden on Saturday unfavorably compared Texas' bill to election changes in those states as "an assault on democracy." Governor Brian Kemp's Twitter feed | Handout via ReutersThe vote in the Texas Senate came just a short time after a final version of the bill had been made public Saturday. Election officials would also face new criminal penalties, including felony charges for sending mail voting applications to people who did not request one.

So what are Republican leaders talking about when they complain about the labor shortage?

It said that wearing masks had done “significant physical, mental, social and economic harm,” that they failed to serve a health or safety purpose and that they “unnecessarily restrict the rights and liberties of individuals and business.”

Trump's "Big Lie" that he lost the election because of voter fraud continues in Arizona's ridiculous audit, run by a QAnon-friendly company Cyber Ninjas. Cyber Ninjas, bamboo, and Trump's "Big Lie"For months before the 2020 election, Trump spread lies about election fraud and refused to commit to accepting the results of a loss. Election audit expert Jennifer Morrell observed the Arizona audit and said she had "never seen one this mismanaged." Mitch McConnell, for a brief moment, seemed like he truly wanted to move on and disassociate the GOP from the Big Lie. Other congressional Republicans could follow suit — it would be the death knell for the Big Lie.
