A year after its passage, infrastructure bill sends over $2.6 billion to Alaska

https://www.yahoo.com/news/passage-infrastructure-bill-sends-over-050100879.html


WASHINGTON — A year after the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill passed, Alaska has been allotted more than $2.6 billion, making the state one of the top recipients per capita in the country.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will ultimately provide $550 billion for infrastructure improvements across the country, distributing funding over five years to improve roads, internet connectivity, and provide clean water, among other initiatives. Democrats and several Republicans supported the bill, including Alaska Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan and the late Rep. Don Young.

Murkowski was part of a group that led negotiations on the bill. She called the legislation "one of the most significant measures I've ever worked on," in a statement last week.

As the federal government continues to dole out infrastructure money over the next four years, Alaska is poised to receive the most funding per capita. A CNBC analysis estimated that $6,700 per resident will come into the state. Already, the bill has allotted money for more than 300 projects in Alaska.

Eastern District of Missouri Judge John Ross will assume senior status in June 2023, creating a third future vacancy on the 9-member court. All three retiring judges were appointed by Democrats. With two Republican Senators (one of which is Josh Hawley), there are no nominees.

Blue slips are still used for district court judges. That has left some opening in red-states, like Missouri.

Kansas judge allows telemedicine for abortion pills

The Hill


A Kansas judge on Wednesday blocked a state law that banned doctors from prescribing abortion pills via telemedicine.

Shawnee County District Court Judge Teresa Watson granted a Wichita reproductive clinic’s request for a temporary injunction, after the Kansas Court of Appeals overturned her previous ruling.

Watson initially denied the clinic’s request for an injunction. However, the appeals court in June found that Watson “diverged from well-established Kansas caselaw” in her decision and sent the issue back to the lower court, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.

“This decision will further open up abortion care in Kansas at a time it’s urgently needed,” Nancy Northup, the president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said in a statement. The center filed the lawsuit on behalf of the clinic, Trust Women, in 2019.

I just wanted to put this out there in the universe, but Judge Carlton Reeves

should be elevated to the 5th Circuit... if he wishes to be elevated.

I'm just putting my wish list out into the universe.

That is all.

AZ-AG: Attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh contests election results

Arizona Republic via Yahoo News


Republican attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh has filed a legal complaint asking a judge not only to prevent certification of the Nov. 8 election results but, if appropriate, also to certify the election to Hamadeh.

The complaint was filed Tuesday in Maricopa County Superior Court by Hamadeh, who was joined by the Republican National Committee.

The contestees include the candidate now leading the attorney general race, Democrat Kris Mayes, as well as Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbes and other elections officials.

Hamadeh trails Mayes by 510 votes with all of Arizona's ballots counted. The race is already headed to an automatic recount, per state law, because the vote differential between the candidates is less than half a percentage point. The recount will occur after the certification of election results Dec. 5.

Georgia Supreme Court reinstates ban on abortions after 6 weeks

AP News


ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia Supreme Court Wednesday reinstated the state’s ban on abortions after roughly six weeks of pregnancy, abruptly ending access to later abortions that had resumed days earlier.

In a one-page order, the justices put a lower court ruling overturning the ban on hold while they consider an appeal. Abortion providers who had resumed performing the procedure past six weeks again had to stop.

Attorneys and advocates who pushed to overturn the ban said the abrupt halt will traumatize women who must now arrange travel to other states for an abortion or keep their pregnancies.
