McConnell suggests Obama plan to cut power emissions won't stick

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 04/30/2015 - 05:18

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) talks to the media after a weekly Senate caucus luncheon on Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Timothy Gardner WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate majority leader on Wednesday urged countries to go slowly on committing to cut carbon emissions in any global agreement later this year, in his latest effort to cripple President Barack Obama's clean power plan. Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, a Republican from coal-producing Kentucky, told a congressional panel that as long he is in charge of the Senate, "this body is not going to be signing off on any back door energy tax." "The failure of Congress to sign off should signal to other countries they should proceed with caution into the December 2015 climate talks in Paris," he added. Last month, the Obama administration submitted plans to the United Nations to cut emission up to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025, seeking to take a leadership role ahead of the talks in Paris from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.

U.S. top court allows judicial campaign solicitations ban

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 04/30/2015 - 05:11
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - States may bar judicial candidates from soliciting campaign contributions, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday in a decision rejecting a Florida candidate's assertion that such limits violate the Constitution's guarantee of free speech. Conservative Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's four liberals in a 5-4 decision that made it easier for states to regulate judicial elections. The ruling follows Supreme Court decisions in recent years lifting other campaign finance restrictions, but it affects only judicial elections and is unlikely to have a broader impact. As such, the ruling does not indicate the court is stepping away from its contentious 2010 Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling.
