Congress is on the verge of approving a bipartisan gun safety bill that seemed unimaginable a month ago. The Senate approved the bill yesterday with a vote of 65 to 33, and it now goes to the house.

Negotiators who wrote the bill chose to focus on a narrow set of policies that could overcome a filibuster in the Senate. The bill includes expanded background checks for gun buyers under 21, new restrictions for people convicted of domestic abuse, plus investments in schools and mental health. The house is expected to quickly take up the bill and send it to President Biden for his signature in piers Kelsey snow.

The Biden administration is working with a bipartisan group of east coast governors to help meet the president's goals for expanding offshore wind energy and fighting climate change. David borax of member station W FAE has more. 11 states from Maine to North Carolina agreed to collaborate with the federal government on expanding things like U.S. wind turbine manufacturing, shipbuilding, ports, and worker training. The U.S. still has no major offshore wind farms, but experts say the industry could bring a $140 billion of investment and thousands of jobs over the next decade. Catherine Collins of the southeastern wind coalition says cooperation is overdue. Something like this, I think, has been needed for a long time. Coordination in this industry is always important given the number of constituencies that are already at the table. The administration says the partnership eventually will expand to the west and gulf coasts, for NPR news, I'm David borax.

That's the gun law the Supreme Court struck down yesterday. In that old movie, on the waterfront, a corrupt union boss is under investigation, and he seizes the pistols of his mob style thugs, so they won't get arrested for carrying concealed weapons. Did you ever hear of the Sullivan law they'll be down on us for the slide has been fractured now? Anything. I'm gonna be indicted any minute. Come on, get me, get me. When you get it through your head, there does not see for me. We're a law abiding union, he says, so he takes the guns and in the climatic scene, he beats up Marlon Brando's character instead of shooting him. Now, if you remade that movie in 2022, you would have to tweak the script because the Supreme Court threw out that century old law and made it easier for law abiding citizens in New York to get a license to carry concealed firearms. And Pierre's Brian man is covering this. Hey there, Brian. Hey, Steve. What did the law do? Well, New York's been one of half a dozen states that until now have required people to demonstrate some kind of special need before they could get a permit to carry firearms out in public. So two men who applied for these public carry permits were rejected, they filed a lawsuit and their case made its way all the way to the Supreme Court. So in this majority ruling yesterday, judge claret justice clarence Thomas said New York's restrictions on carrion guns outside the home do in fact violate the Second Amendment. He concluded that New York officials have been using too much discretion, denying these permits to law abiding people in his dissenting opinion justice even Breyer points out that guns are claiming more than 40,000 American lives every year. Breyer said this ruling is going to burden efforts to curb that violence, not just in New York State, but across the country. I would imagine New York State officials are also dissenting. Yeah, they're furious. I spoke yesterday, Steve with Byron Brown. He's mayor in Buffalo where ten people were killed in that mass shooting just in May. The nation is reeling from mass shootings. So the timing of this Supreme Court decision could not have been worse. And officials here are also alarmed at guns could now be a lot more common in crowded places like New York City's subway system, Times Square and places like Central Park. How does this affect other states? Yeah, this really could make guns much more common in public areas, also in states like California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, leaders in those states are condemning this decision. They say they're going to try to work around it looking for new ways to limit the impact that could include designating more sensitive places where guns aren't allowed. In a press conference yesterday, New York City's mayor Eric Adams of former NYPD police officer called on New York's legislature to hold a special session to pass new gun laws. We're not allowed the men and women of the police department to be subjected to further danger, making their already difficult jobs even more harrowing. But you know, Steve, all these states face a complicated path now. It's unclear what new regulations will pass muster before this very conservative Supreme Court

Hi, Greg. Hi, Ari. As crews conduct the search and rescue today they're also dealing with a strong tropical storm that is bearing down on the state. How is that affecting their work? Well appears a tropical storm is on a track that's going to miss this area. It's now expected to make landfall along Florida's West Coast early tomorrow. You were for fears, though, that if Tropical Storm Elsa targeted Miami High winds could further destabilize even toppled that building that was remaining standing because that the building was taken down with an implosion early Sunday, But bands of heavy rain and strong wind gusts have been coming through here today and have slowed the effort. Crews were forced to stop work for a couple of hours today because of wind gusts and the lightning. Officials say With the demolition, they can now access all parts of the pile and they're making progress. Any idea how many victims are still trapped or buried in the pile of rubble? That's not entirely clear. Currently, officials say they have 109 people have been reported missing. But Miami Dade Mayor Levine Cava says much of that information is still incomplete. We may only have a name without an apartment number without a date of birth or other details. Earlier today, the mayor said police detectives have been going through the list and can only confirm about 70 of those reported missing were actually in the building when it collapsed. It has now been 12 days since the building collapse, and dozens of families are still waiting to find out. What happened to their loved ones. Are officials holding out any hope at this point? Well, not really. In nearly two weeks of searching, rescue workers have found very few empty spaces or voids in the rubble where they say someone may have possibly survived.

Officials aren't saying when they will officially give up the search for survivors and move into the recovery phase.

They understand that the news of their loved ones may be tragic loss and they as their contacted You've met. Them know that a loved one has passed. They're prepared for it.

Well, officials say investigators with the National Institute of Standards and Technology are on site and they're tagging all the evidence that's been gathered. There have also been using computer based imaging to create a three d model of the pile and the and of the remaining building before it was demolished. In the meantime, a local grand jury will also be taking up the matter and an investigation.
