Maryland governor moves to repeal 'rain tax'

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 05:45
(Reuters) - Maryland's "rain tax" on stormwater runoff designed to protect the ailing Chesapeake Bay would be repealed under legislation Republican Governor Larry Hogan unveiled on Tuesday. Hogan said in a statement that the stormwater management measure would allow nine counties and the city of Baltimore alternative ways to pay for cleaning up fouled runoff that flows into the Chesapeake Bay, the largest U.S. estuary. The Maryland legislature established the stormwater levy, commonly called the "rain tax," in 2012. In a statement, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said that it was up to Maryland and other watershed states to decide how to meet pollution goals for the bay.

FDA Commissioner says measles outbreak 'alarming'

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 05:42

Measles vaccine is seen at Venice Family Clinic in Los AngelesDescribing the latest measles outbreak as "alarming," Dr. Margaret Hamburg, outgoing commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, said on Tuesday that the measles vaccine "should be used by everyone who has not been vaccinated." Her comments, published in a blog post on the FDA's website, come as the United States battles a resurgence of the disease, driven by fears among some parents of an association between vaccines and autism - fears that experts say have no basis in science. Hamburg said vaccination is the single best way to prevent the spread of the disease. This year more than 120 people across 17 states have been infected with measles, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Last year, 644 cases were reported, the highest number since the disease was effectively eliminated from the United States in 2000.

Carter, 60, a former Pentagon No. 2 seen as a technocrat, was nominated to be Obama's fourth defense secretary after Chuck Hagel resigned under pressure last year. Although many Senate Republicans are sharply critical of Obama's defense policies, Carter's confirmation has gone far more smoothly than Hagel's two years ago.
