Trump declares disaster over northern Utah's February flooding 22.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
President Donald Trump on Friday declared that “a major disaster exists” in northern Utah after the region was socked by severe winter storms and flooding in February. The state will receive federal assistance to go toward road repairs, Trump announced, after February storms led to flooding in Box Elder and Cache counties. The federal funding won’t be allocated to homes that were damaged by flooding. And because the majority of the families with damaged homes don’t have flood insurance, busines...

How Bernie Sanders Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Democratic Party 22.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
OMAHA, Nebraska ― Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) called on an arena full of Omaha Democrats to get behind the city’s mayoral candidate Heath Mello on Thursday night, passionately appealing for unity hours after national reproductive rights advocates criticized the Democratic Party for backing an anti-choice lawmaker. “Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to change one-party rule in Nebraska. And we can start right here, by electing Heath Mello as the next mayor,” Sanders declared to loud cheers. Well before Sanders delivered his remarks, Mello had responded to the controversy by vowing that he would “never do anything to restrict access to reproductive health care” as mayor, notwithstanding his faith-rooted opposition to abortion ― and history of votes to limit abortion rights as a state lawmaker. But Sanders and Ellison’s decision to stump for Mello well before that clarification underscored a disagreement within progressive ranks about where to draw ideological boundaries, with ...

Jennifer Rubin: Getting out was Rep. Chaffetz's only good option 21.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz announced Wednesday that he will not run for reelection to his House seat in 2018.

The Climate Post: EPA Administrator Says United States Should Exit Paris Agreement 21.4.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
In an interview last week, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator (EPA) Scott Pruitt said that the United States should “exit” the Paris Agreement —the first time such a high-ranking Trump administration official has so explicitly rejected the global accord to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit that increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Pruitt also vowed that the EPA would “roll back” the Clean Power Plan, a key component of former Obama administration’s plan to meet the U.S. pledge under the Paris Agreement, which calls for an emissions reduction of 26–28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025. “Paris is something we need to look at closely,” Pruitt said . “It’s something we need to exit in my opinion. It’s a bad deal for America. It’s an ‘America second, third or fourth’ kind of approach.” Pruitt said that he would not risk U.S. jobs to comply with the agreement, the subject of a battle within the Trump administration—one ...
