Florida Senate passes bill requiring 24-hour wait for abortions

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/25/2015 - 04:34
By Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Reuters) - The Florida Senate approved a bill on Friday mandating a 24-hour waiting period for women seeking abortions, with all Republicans voting in favor and all Democrats opposed. The bill is now headed to Republican Governor Rick Scott, who is expected to sign it into law. Senator Anitere Flores, a Miami Republican who sponsored the bill, said it was reasonable for women to wait 24 hours after meeting with their doctors for an "informed consent" briefing on fetal development, which is already required by state law, and undergoing the abortion procedure itself. She noted that state law requires a three-day waiting period for purchasing a gun or getting married, and 20 days for divorces.

Seattle plans $600 million wastewater overflow project

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/25/2015 - 04:27
A Seattle utility unveiled a $600 million plan on Friday to stop millions of gallons of untreated wastewater and polluted runoff from flowing into the area's creeks, lakes, the Duwamish river and the Puget Sound. The plan would involve construction of a 2.7-mile, $374-million combined sewer overflow storage system along the north side of the Lake Washington Ship Canal, just miles from an unrelated headline-grabbing $3.1 billion Seattle roadway overhaul that has been fraught with delays. "The plan would also keep millions of gallons of storm runoff out of public waterways, reducing threats to human and aquatic health and the region's quality of life," Seattle Public Utilities spokesman Andy Ryan said in a statement. The 15-year plan aims to fulfill promises Seattle made in a 2013 consent decree with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the state's Department of Ecology to reduce sewer overflows to comply with state and federal law.
