Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) arrives to the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., August 8, 2021. REUTERS/Elizabeth FrantzWASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Two senior U.S. Senate Democrats urged Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday to investigate and prosecute unruly air passengers in the face of a rising number of incidents onboard airplanes. "Civil penalties alone are failing to deter criminal activity by airline passengers," Durbin and Cantwell wrote in the letter to the FAA. In June, a group representing major U.S. airlines such as American Airlines (AAL.O), Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) and United Airlines [RIC:RIC:UALCO.UL], and aviation unions also asked Garland to prosecute the growing number of disruptive and violent air passengers. To date this year, there have been 4,284 reports of unruly passenger incidents, including 3,123 that were mask-related.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors announced that a special master will take questions from the Senate’s election review contractors and provide them with information contained on the routers they say they need to finish the election review. They said the Senate’s vote review funded by pro-Trump donors is being run by incompetent grifters hired by the Senate. The company hired by the Senate to oversee the election review, Florida-based Cyber Ninjas, has no prior election review or auditing experience. The Senate and Cyber Ninjas have themselves fought in court over whether they need to turn over records of the election review to a watchdog group and the Arizona Republic newspaper. Most recently, Cyber Ninjas canceled plans to submit its report last month saying several of its team members had contracted Covid-19 and had serious symptoms.

Senators moved to bolster attention and money from Congress for Hispanic Serving Institutions, HSIs. Alex Padilla, D-Calif., and Bob Menendez, D-N.J., said Thursday they have formed the first Senate HSI Caucus to promote education equity. Padilla said it was news to him and Coons that there was not a Senate HSI caucus. However, many were once the only institutions Latinos could attend because of racist admissions policies and other inequities. Padilla noted that universities and colleges designated as HSIs, also educate a significant number of Black, Asian American and Native American students.

McConnell's final remark to Trump was, "You lost the election," according to a new book. "Mr. President," the Kentucky Republican said, "the Electoral College has spoken. The president seemingly wanted McConnell to embrace the Big Lie, or the false notion that the election was stolen from him. McConnell's final remark to Trump on the call was, "You lost the election, the Electoral College has spoken," according to the book. During a speech in April, Trump called McConnell a "dumb son of a bitch" and a "stone cold loser."

Former Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Gary Gensler testifies at a U.S. Senate Banking Committee hearing on systemic risk and market oversight on Capitol Hill in Washington May 22, 2012. WASHINGTON — Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Gary Gensler on Tuesday assured lawmakers that Wall Street's top regulator is working overtime to create a set of rules to oversee the volatile cryptocurrency markets while balancing the interests of American innovators. "Currently, we just don't have enough investor protection in crypto finance, issuance, trading, or lending," Gensler said in prepared remarks. "My whole point is, I think we need clarity on this," Toomey said. ... And we certainly shouldn't be taking enforcement action against somebody without having first provided that clarity."

WASHINGTON—Democrats are grappling with the fiscal and political limits of their pursuit of a broad antipoverty and climate bill, with some senior lawmakers preparing to slim down or eliminate elements of the proposal as moderates push to shrink the $3.5 trillion package. Senators return to Washington Monday after a weekslong break, in a rush to craft the legislation at the center of President Biden’s agenda, an effort that Republicans oppose. To pass the bill with just Democratic votes, lawmakers will need to navigate a host of intraparty disagreements over the legislation—which aims to expand access to child care, education and healthcare while also raising taxes on high-income households and companies.

A group of U.S. senators is asking the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to investigate allegations that Amazon.com Inc. doesn’t reasonably accommodate its fulfillment centers’ pregnant workers. The senators wrote EEOC Chairwoman Charlotte Burrows on Thursday asking her office to look into allegations the company failed to adequately modify physically strenuous work that could threaten pregnant workers’ health and safety, and didn’t allow pregnant women to take time off for pregnancy-related medical needs without being punished. The group of Democratic senators say both scenarios may violate the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.

Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York, Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Bob Casey, Jr., D-Pa., Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Friday requested that the EEOC investigate Amazon's "systemic failure to provide adequate accommodations" for pregnant warehouse workers. They also claim Amazon doesn't allow pregnant workers to take time off without punishment for pregnancy-related medical needs. In May, Washington state workplace regulators fined Amazon $7,000 for safety violations at a warehouse in Dupont, Washington, the Seattle Times reported. Warehouse workers at an Amazon facility in Alabama raised concerns around safety and inadequate breaks amid a high-profile but ultimately unsuccessful union drive.

Senators Ron Wyden and Sherrod Brown floated the idea of a 2% tax on stock buybacks on Friday. Senators Ron Wyden and Sherrod Brown are proposing a tax on corporate stock buybacks to help fund part of Democrat's $3.5 trillion spending plans. And if a CEO has his or her pay tied to EPS results, stock buybacks could serve as an incentive for them to help reach their compensation targets. In 2019, corporate stock buybacks surged to more than $700 billion, and JPMorgan estimates that a record $1 trillion in corporate stock buybacks could be made over the next year.

The federal programs supplemented standard and far more modest state unemployment benefits. Economists have projected that New York City may not fully regain all its pandemic job losses until 2024. The federal assistance provided new streams of financial aid beyond regular unemployment payments, which are distributed by states. Unemployment benefits were also offered to contract workers and the self-employed, who under normal circumstances do not qualify for assistance. The end of the $300 federal supplement means those who still qualify for regular benefits through New York State will lose about half of their weekly assistance.

Many Democrats are determined to tax the wealth of America’s fabulously rich, much of which goes untaxed for decades before being passed along to heirs. They pay taxes only on the gain in value from that point once the assets are sold. Mr. Biden wants to have heirs to large fortunes pay taxes when the original owner dies. Those taxes would be levied on inherited assets based on the gain in value from when those assets were initially purchased. Lobbyists already expect this piece of the estate tax changes to wash out in the lobbying deluge.

Federal benefits are set to come to a permanent end come Labor Day, despite calls to extend. Insider spoke to Stephanie Freed, the executive director of ExtendPUA.org, about the last year of unemployment advocacy. "Our industry was just like in a huge panic, cause that was what was keeping people alive," Freed said. At the onset of the pandemic, jobless workers like Freed received an additional $600 a week in unemployment, thanks to Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), a federal program that expanded who was eligible for unemployment benefits. Freed set out to co-found the advocacy group ExtendPUA.org, which is still fighting for the extension and expansion of unemployed benefits a year later.

Mr. Netanyahu successfully encouraged President Trump to abandon the deal. But Mr. Bennett’s constructive tone differs from that of Mr. Netanyahu, who had a strong relationship with the Trump administration but a fraught one with the Democratic administrations that book-ended Mr. Trump’s tenure. It took Mr. Biden nearly a month after his inauguration to call Mr. Netanyahu, which some Israeli analysts took as a snub. In contrast, Mr. Biden called Mr. Bennett just two hours after the new Israeli leader had been sworn into office. “We could be this lighthouse in a storm, if you will,” Mr. Bennett said.
