Black Voters Matter has embarked on what the national advocacy and policy group has christened a Freedom Ride for Voting Rights. Its goals, BVM co-founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright note, are threefold: to amplify the need for federal voting rights legislation, build Black voting power, and advocate for Washington, D.C., statehood. People gather during the launch of the "Freedom Ride for Voting Rights" in Jackson, Miss., on June 19, 2021. Founded in 1869, the historically Black college became one of the epicenters of the civil rights movement. “Amen!”Barbara Arnwine, a lawyer, updated the crowd on voting rights legislation before Congress.

MINNEAPOLIS — Twelve jurors took about 10 hours to convict Derek Chauvin of murdering George Floyd. Stinson said he expects Chauvin will receive a lengthy prison term. The prosecution has asked that Chauvin be sentenced to 30 years. Eric Nelson, Chauvin's attorney, has asked that he receive probation with time served or for a downward departure from sentencing guidelines. Christopher Brown, a lawyer in Virginia who specializes in excessive force cases, said he believes Chauvin will receive a harsh sentence.

While the goods trade deficit widened last month, that was because of an increase in imports as businesses desperately try to keep up with robust demand. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 7,000 to a seasonally adjusted 411,000 for the week ended June 19, the Labor Department said. STRONG GROWTHFederal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told lawmakers on Tuesday that he believed the economy would see strong job creation in the fall. Strong demand and tight supply are forcing businesses to turn to imports, boosting the trade deficit. In a third report, the Commerce Department said the goods trade deficit increased 2.8% to $88.1 billion in May.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio, the state that launched the national movement to offer millions of dollars in incentives to boost vaccination rates, planned to conclude its program Wednesday — still unable to crack the 50% vaccination threshold. Mike DeWine’s May 12 announcement of the incentive program had the desired effect, leading to a 43 percent boost in state vaccination numbers over the previous week. Multiple other states followed Ohio's lead, including Louisiana, Maryland, and New York state, with the impact on vaccinations hard to pin down. California awarded $116.5 million in prizes — the country’s largest pot of vaccine prize money — and Democratic Gov. The state is offering five residents the chance to win $1 million each in weekly lottery drawings from June 4 until July 7.

Managing Joe Manchin: How Chuck Schumer Tries to Keep Democrats United

WASHINGTON—Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York liberal, and Sen. Joe Manchin, the pivotal West Virginia centrist, have long been a prominent odd couple on Capitol Hill. But there are limits to what friendship can achieve in a Senate where each party has 50 seats and Vice President Kamala Harris has a tiebreaking vote. The interplay between the two men was on display when Mr. Schumer scheduled a vote to open debate on the Democrats’ sweeping elections bill. The bill itself was almost certain to fail, given it would require 60 votes—at least 10 from Republicans—to pass, and no Republican had signaled support. But Mr. Schumer wanted to proceed anyway to show that Democrats were united behind it and that its failure would be at Republican hands.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 7,000 a seasonally adjusted 411,000 for the week ended June 19, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Generous government-funded unemployment benefits, including a $300 weekly check, have also been blamed, as well as a hesitancy to return to work out of fear of contracting the virus. Four states, including Iowa and Alaska, either terminated all federal government-funded benefits or just the $300 supplement on June 12. They were joined last Saturday by eight other states, including Alabama and West Virginia. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told lawmakers on Tuesday that he believed the economy would see strong job creation in the fall.

The movement upended the housing market, which led Google searches for "should I buy a house?" For that very reason, it's all too easy to find downsides to every kind of single-family home on the market right now, from new builds to decrepit fixer-uppers. The median size of a single-family house completed in 2020 was 2,261 square feet, according to US Census Bureau data. Meanwhile, the National Association of Home Builders found that lumber prices have been so high that they could stand to add over $35,000 in costs to a new build. But lumber prices are already cooling, which could provide builders much-needed relief soon.

Schumer and Pelosi are plowing ahead with a separate spending package without the GOP. Most Democrats are pressing for a separate package focused on the social initiatives Biden has laid out, including healthcare, childcare, and education. But all 50 Democratic senators would have to support the sprawling spending package, given the strong odds of united GOP opposition. "We've agreed on a framework on the entire package and we're going to the White House," Sen. Mitt Romney told reporters. The bipartisan group of 10 lawmakers is evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the bipartisan group of lawmakers who negotiated an infrastructure deal. President Joe Biden announced on Thursday that the group reached a deal. The New York lawmaker called out the group for its lack of diversity. The senators who led the infrastructure negotiations with Biden include five Republicans and five Democrats. "This is why a bipartisan [package] alone isn't acceptable," Ocasio-Cortez went on to say.

Still, the deal struck Thursday fulfills the promise of bipartisanship that Mr. Biden has long sought, and its authors were in a celebratory mood. The talks unfolded after negotiations had collapsed with a separate group of Republicans led by Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, with Mr. Biden saying the G.O.P. was not offering enough infrastructure funding to meet the country’s needs. A large sum, $47 billion, is set aside for “resilience” — a down payment on Mr. Biden’s promise to deal with the effects of climate change. Both the infrastructure legislation and the far more ambitious reconciliation bill must still be written and passed by both chambers.

In 1980, Senate Republicans won a majority for the first time in 26 years, breaking the Democrats’ hammerlock on the chamber. After Senate Republicans on Tuesday blocked consideration of marquee voting rights legislation, Democrats are closer than ever to ending the filibuster. The eagerness of many Senate Democrats to abolish the filibuster reflects a case of epic legislative amnesia about the rule’s double-edged nature. Senate Democrats in 2019 used it to block construction of Trump’s border wall. Senate Democrats only feel differently now because they hold the majority and are frustrated by being on the other side of the coin.

WASHINGTON — A key moderate Democratic senator opened the door Tuesday to investing in President Joe Biden's "human infrastructure" proposals and unwinding some of the Republican tax cuts of 2017. "I've come to the knowledge, basically, that budget reconciliation is for reconciling budgets. So it's money matters," Manchin told NBC News, calling for bolstering "human infrastructure" — Biden's term for investments in child care, community college and paid leave — and raising tax revenues to fund them. A budget reconciliation bill is a rare way for his party to bypass Republicans without abolishing the 60-vote rule. Democratic leaders say they hope to advance Biden's infrastructure and economic plans in July.

Manchin signaled he could support a party-line infrastructure bill after striking a possible deal with Republicans. He also supports unwinding the Trump tax cuts, which he called "unfair." Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia on Tuesday said he was open to backing a party-line infrastructure bill. The influential Democratic centrist told NBC News that "human infrastructure" should constitute a follow-up package. Manchin also said he believed "adjustments" need to be made to the 2017 Republican tax law, which slashed corporate taxes.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday criticized Republicans for blocking a voting rights bill. He compared their views to those of senators opposed to civil rights reforms in the '60s. In an attack on Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer compared his Republican counterpart's opposition to a bill to protect voting rights to senators who fought against civil rights reforms in the '60s. In his response, Schumer compared McConnell's position to that of senators in the 1960s who opposed federal legislation to protect civil rights and the voting rights of Black Americans. The 1965 Voting Rights Acts and the 1964 Civil Rights Act were landmark pieces of legislation passed during the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, designed to overcome racist state laws that targeted Black communities.

Joe Manchin holds singular sway over Biden's economic agenda and his spending plans. He's indicated he wants an infrastructure plan that includes a partial rollback of Trump's tax cuts. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is poised to play a critical role in President Joe Biden's economic agenda. With Democrats essentially needing to pass major legislation via reconciliation — which requires all 50 members of the parties to vote in favor — Manchin remains the swing vote on infrastructure. Manchin chairs the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, which The Hill first reported is slated to mark up a 423-page legislative draft aimed at strengthening the nation's energy infrastructure on Thursday.

Senate Democrats are circulating an alternative $6 trillion proposal to expand jobs and support the US workforce while they continue to negotiate with Republicans on infrastructure. The draft proposal they have in the works is a backup plan they're putting together in case the ongoing infrastructure talks with their GOP colleagues collapse. The Sanders draft proposal includes some of President Joe Biden's priorities but goes even further on certain issues, such as lowering Medicare's eligibility to age 60. Under the Sanders draft, it would also expand to cover more medical services than it does now, including vision, hearing, and dental care. The Sanders draft includes $150 billion toward a clean electricity payment program that would reduce carbon emissions.

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats, searching for any way forward on legislation to protect voting rights, find themselves softening their once-firm opposition to a form of restriction on the franchise that they had long warned would be Exhibit A for voter suppression: voter identification laws. As such laws were first cropping up decades ago, Democrats fought them tooth and nail, insisting that they would be an impossible barrier to scale for the nation’s most vulnerable voters, especially older people and people of color. But in recent years, as the concept of voter identification has become broadly popular, the idea that voters bring some form of ID to the polls has been accepted by Democrats ranging from Senator Joe Manchin III of West Virginia on the center-right to Stacey Abrams of Georgia, a hero of the left. “What I get concerned about is when you say gun licenses are OK, when a student ID is not. Then I think any reasonable person has to ask, ‘Well, what’s that game?’”

Hundreds of birds are dying without explanation in parts of the South and Midwest. Wildlife experts in at least six states and Washington, D.C., have reported an increase in sick or dying birds in the past month. Indiana wildlife officials said there have been suspicious deaths of blue jays, robins, northern cardinals and brown-headed cowbirds in five counties. Wildlife experts are asking the public to report any suspicious bird deaths. Bird feeders and baths should also be cleaned immediately with a 10 percent bleach solution, and people should avoid handling birds, officials said.
