House votes to avert rail strike, impose deal on unions

"Congress is attempting to head off a national rail strike. I'm Ben Thomas with the latest. Members from both parties are pushing for it. Michelle fischbach, Republican of Minnesota. Our country's economy can't handle a strike that reports would say would cost $2 billion a day. Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts. Commuter rails that carry tens of thousands of people to work each day would no longer run. There will be shortages of nearly every kind of food in our grocery stores. The result, the a's are two 90, the nays are one 37, the joint resolution is passed. The bill would bind rail companies and workers to a deal brokered by the Biden administration in September, but voted down by four of the 12 unions involved, representing roughly 115,000 employees. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can't be reached before a December 9th deadline. Democrats aligned with labor have criticized Biden's move to intervene and House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded by adding a second vote, adding 7 days per year of paid sick leave for rail workers, a key issue. That measure passed by a much narrower margin two 21 to two O 7 with Republicans overwhelmingly opposed. It now goes to the Senate and White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre says a bill averting a rail strike needs to reach his death by this weekend. As for that second Bill, he does not support any bill or amendment that will delay getting this bill to his desk by this Saturday. Ben Thomas, Washington.

49ers top Saints 13-0, first to blank New Orleans since 2001

"San Francisco's defense set the tone from the opening drive, forcing New Orleans Alvin Kamara to fumble and holding the star running back to a total 13 yards rushing for the game. The mission accomplished Nick Bosa says the defense expected the saints to try to get their run game going, but shut it down. And whenever you do that, it's going to be a really good chance of making a team one dimensional. Jimmy Garoppolo through the game's only touchdown in a 13 zero victory as San Francisco became the first team to hold New Orleans scoreless in nearly 21 years. The forty-niners improved to 7 and four alone atop the NFC west. The saints fall to foreign aid. I'm Ben Thomas

While vaccination rates have been plateau going, Arkansas ranks among states with the relatively low vaccination rate, Governor Asa Hutchinson tells ABC's this week with George Stephanopoulos. A large portion of those contracting the virus are in the 30 to 54 age bracket. We're working very hard to Go to that population through the employer through trusted advisers, such as the clinics, making sure they have the information and overcoming the hesitancy or just the simply, we're putting it off approach. Stephanopoulos asked Hutchinson, a Republican about the apparent disparity and vaccination rates between Democratic and GOP leaning areas. There shouldn't be a partisan divide. First of all, but Clearly conservative is more hesitant about government authority, Hutchinson adds. We've got to overcome that mistrust because it's Republicans Democrats, We all suffer the same consequences. The Delta variant gets us who were not vaccinated. Also on ABC s this week, President Biden's chief medical advisor, Dr Anthony Fauci, says people should not be put off because the Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorization for the vaccines rather than full approval. That's really only a technical issue. It's the FDA Dotting the I's and crossing the teas. As for the potential need for booster shots, Fauci says federal health officials continue to follow participants in the initial vaccine trials collecting data on their level of immunity. You follow that over months, and if it goes down below a critical level That's a writ flag that you may need to boost. Another is a pure clinical observation, namely, are we seeing more breakthrough infections than you might expect? Fauci adds. The aim is to be ready if it becomes clear a booster is needed.
