MIAMI (AP) — Mixed signals from the Supreme Court have states on edge about the future of health insurance subsidies for millions of Americans. And a summer decision from the justices leaves little time for backup planning.
By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - A truck driver who may have been fatigued veered into oncoming traffic on a rural Washington state highway on Thursday, killing a woman driving a car and crashing into a school bus loaded with children, a state trooper said. A woman driving a car was pronounced dead at the scene, state troopers said. Trooper Darren Wright of the Washington State Patrol said it appeared that the box truck driver, who was traveling south, was falling asleep before his truck crossed into oncoming traffic, striking the car and bus, both traveling north.
A Delta plane from Atlanta skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport while landing during a snowstorm Thursday and crashed through a chain-link fence, its nose coming to rest perilously close to the icy waters of a bay.
By Brendan O'Brien MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - Wisconsin lawmakers on Thursday began a final debate on a measure supported by Republican Governor Scott Walker that would prohibit private-sector workers from being required to join a union or pay dues when working under union contracts. Protesters shouting "right-to-work is wrong for Wisconsin" from the Assembly gallery brought a temporary halt to the session on Thursday afternoon, drawing an order for security to clear the viewing area. The state Senate approved the bill last week, and the Assembly, where Republicans hold a 63-36 majority, is expected to follow suit to make Wisconsin the 25th state to enact a right-to-work law. Thousands of workers demonstrated last week when senators debated the bill, but capitol crowds have been far thinner than four years ago, when tens of thousands of people protested a push for a law limiting the powers of public sector unions.
