Kevin Brown, chairman of the Mohegan Tribe, left, and Rodney Butler, chairman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation leave a hearing at the Legislative Office Building, Tuesday, March 17, 2015, in Hartford, Conn. The chairmen of Connecticut's two federally recognized Indian tribes testified, warning lawmakers that a new casino in neighboring Springfield, Massachusetts, could cost the state as many as 18,000 jobs unless steps are taken to address the competition. Brown and Butler said in an interview with The Associated Press that the tribes are rallying around the threat of new competition from Massachusetts casinos. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill)HARTFORD, Conn.

Confederate flag license plate battle reaches U.S. Supreme Court

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 03/22/2015 - 21:03

Handout of the design of a proposed "Sons of the Confederacy" Texas state license plateBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday takes up a free speech case on whether Texas was wrong in rejecting a specialty vehicle license plate displaying the Confederate flag - to some an emblem of Southern pride and to others a symbol of racism. The nine justices will hear a one-hour oral argument in a case that raises the issue of how states can allow or reject politically divisive messages on license plates without violating free speech rights. States can generate revenue by allowing outside groups to propose specialty license plates that people then pay a fee to put on their vehicle. The group Sons of Confederate Veterans says its aim is to preserve the "history and legacy" of soldiers who fought for the pro-slavery Confederacy in the U.S. Civil War.
