Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 11:17

U.S. Representative Michael Grimm of New York at a news conference after his guilty plea at the Brooklyn federal court in New YorkA Republican prosecutor declared victory on Tuesday night in a special election to replace disgraced U.S. Representative Michael Grimm, a month before his sentencing for federal tax evasion. Unofficial New York City Board of Elections results showed Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan ahead of Democrat Vincent Gentile by about 8,000 votes, holding a lead of 59 percent to 39 percent. "I truly believe our nation is at a crossroads, but with that comes great opportunity." Gentile, a member of the New York City Council and former state senator, could not be immediately reached for comment. Donovan drew national attention last year for presenting evidence to a grand jury that did not indict a white police officer in the choking death of an unarmed black man, Eric Garner, during an attempted arrest.

Drought forces California into first mandatory rules to save water

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 11:12

A drought sign is seen in a field near ButtonwillowBy Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - California water regulators on Tuesday adopted the state's first rules for mandatory cutbacks in urban water use as the region's catastrophic drought enters its fourth year. The emergency regulations, which require some communities to trim water use by as much as 36 percent, were approved unanimously late Tuesday by the State Water Resources Control Board weeks after Democratic Governor Jerry Brown stood in a drying mountain meadow and ordered statewide rationing. "This is a community crisis," said water resources board chair Felicia Marcus as testimony began in a daylong hearing on the rules on Tuesday. Urban users will be hardest hit, even though they account for only 20 percent of state water consumption, while the state's massive agricultural sector, which the Public Policy Institute of California says uses 80 percent of human-related consumption, has been exempted.
