The Supreme Court by a 5 to 4 vote struck down the key enforcement provisions in the act, which required states with a history of discrimination in voting to get clearance in advance from the Justice Department for any changes they were trying to put into the law. And that left only a different section of the law, known as Section two to enforce the provisions. The nondiscrimination provisions of the act, which aimed at making equal access for all voters, and the court today by a 6 to 3 vote has rendered that provision. Close to a dead letter.

People who live in flood zones are increasingly deciding to relocate in many cases through a federal home buyout program, researchers at Rice University and Temple University Wanted to know where those people were moving. They followed 1500 people in Houston who moved after 2017 Hurricane Harvey. They found that people who originally lived in areas with higher home values, many of which were also weiter. Are more likely to end up in places near their original neighbors. That support system can help ease the transition to a new area.
