Ferndale police officer behind bars for facing child sex charges, the Bellingham police department says he is suspected of attempting to solicit a minor. Stocks jump this afternoon after Federal Reserve delivered another big interest rate hike in an effort to curb inflation, Lisa jaffe got details from ABC's Justin Finch. It's the fourth time this year, Justin that the fed is racing interest rates. That's right, three quarters of a percent. This is uncharted territory for the past few decades here for the U.S.. And quite frankly, I'm sure not what The White House wants right now, given that they're trying to help Americans see what they're seeing on the economic stage, which is the country is not yet in a recession. Inflation and recession, competing forces, not quite the same thing in many ways, inflation weren't by increased prices on goods and services, recession is when we see consecutive downturn in the economy negative growth we're talking here. But The White House saying despite two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth, that does not count as recession, given what they are seeing, which is a very strong job and labor market. And that is a traditional marker of recession that they've noted for the past several decades going back to the 80s. They're saying essentially that's not where we are right now. You have to also price in this very unique environment, which is we have the war overseas. We of course have the COVID-19 fallout. And of course, inflation too, it's an economic landscape that's not familiar, but they're saying not quite a recession. High inflation imposes significant hardship, especially on those least able to meet the higher costs of essentials, like food, housing, and transportation. And the fed chair Jerome Powell saying Justin that the Central Bank can turn inflation around that there's resilience in the economy, but that the growth and consumer spending are down and that this might not be the end of it. We might see rates go up again. That's very much still on the table. And that's kind of the the competing dialog here is that you have The White House saying, you know, we're not quite in a recession. You have the Federal Reserve saying that we are seeing a high inflationary environment right now. But you also are seeing Americans begin to make tough decisions and pull back. All this, despite the reports of a high job market. So it's very strange for a lot of us to process that all these things are in play, but don't seem to be in full agreement. We of course will see what happens while another unusually large increase could be appropriate at our next meeting. That is a decision that will depend on the data we get between now and then. That rate hike from the fed is going to be a very big twist for a lot of people right now already making tough choices, but the word from The White House is what we're looking at right now in their eyes is not quite a recession. How does it translate? Do you have specifics on how this will impact people? Well, the rate hike is going to be something that you will see very soon in just your day to today. This will affect how much you pay on a mortgage, how much you pay on your credit cards. In a lot of ways, too, those decisions will rather those markups will impact decisions Americans will be making every day as they see it not only the cost of living going up, but the cost of borrowing going up as well. Those two things rising at once as wages aren't per se, rising either will make for a lot of frustration in this country. ABC's Justin Finch, thank you, Justin. And that's ELISA jaffe.

"News times 6 35. Well, as the nation remains deeply divided on gun rights and laws, the Supreme Court today struck down a New York licensing law restricting gun carrying rights. Lisa jaffe spoke with ABC's M win about the high court's decision and its far reaching implications. This is a major victory for gun rights groups and explain how the Supreme Court ruling has major implications for cities all around the country. Right, so in this case, the Supreme Court struck down a century old New York law, the required people to show proper cause to get a license to carry a concealed handgun outside of the home. And this opinion was 6 to three authored by justice clarence Thomas, the three liberal justices were dissented. Now, this means that almost immediately there's going to be at least 8 states, plus the District of Columbia, because they have what's called may issue concealed carry laws, which means the states can help regulate who has access to concealed carry. Again, in those states and specifically in this case, for New York, they needed to show proper cause. So you couldn't just get it depending on your zip code. And so this includes California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and of course, New York. This means they won't have any discretion over who carries a weapon around, they may be able to define gun sensitive locations like schools, but this is still something that leaders are now scrambling to figure out. And you know, this is particularly concerning for some as of right now because of this spike and gun violence that we've seen across the nation. And so limiting concealed carry could be the state's way of regulating who can carry a gun under their jacket, for instance. But in this case, this means that moving forward, it may be opening up the floodgates to a wave of new legal challenges nationwide. So while these may be the first few states to see some sort of difference, this definitely could be a difference across the nation. What might this mean as lawmakers are working on hammering out this bipartisan gun deal? I mean, it's very interesting. I was actually talking to some protesters right outside of the Supreme Court, of course, some one supporter said they felt like overall New York has had a limitation of their fundamental rights when it came to the citizens and whether or not they wanted to conceal carry. But another protester said, on one hand, while this is heartbreaking, it's also very ironic because Congress is trying to pass gun reform legislation at the same time. So it is quite ironic that in one case the Supreme Court, it seems that those regulations that states wanted to put to have this sort of gun control in their own states was getting taken away, but on this hand here at Capitol Hill, it seems as if senators are working towards some sort of gun reform. And so as of today, senators voted to end debate on the gun legislation Bill meant there was 15 Republicans who were actually voting with all Democrats. And so certainly it looks as if we are on a path towards passing gun reform legislation, which again is very contradictory to what we saw today at the Supreme Court. ABC's and win. Thank you, am. And we're getting more response into the Supreme Court's concealed Kerry ruling, ABC's Alex stone has the latest from Los Angeles. California's governor is calling the Supreme Court decision reckless and radical. Now he in California attorney general rob montes say new legislation is being introduced in line with the ruling that will limit where concealed guns can be carried in California and. The legislation will also clarify the qualifications for obtaining a concealed carry permit in California. The Bruin case reaffirmed that it is appropriate for states to require a concealed carry weapon permit. Also next week, governor Gavin Newsom is expected to sign 16 new gun bills in the law.

"This is northwest news radio 1000 FM 97 7 Thanks for joining us this evening I'm Rick found size with the Lisa jaffe our editor is Bill O'Neill One Republican senator says he's optimistic about the state of gun talks following recent mass shootings across the country Pennsylvania's pat toomey tweeted that sentiment after meeting with fellow senators to discuss what a potential gun reform package would look like Connecticut senator Chris Murphy also feeling momentum is building toward a bipartisan gun violence Bill Well and on the topic president Joe Biden takes his case for new gun restrictions to the American people as heard live here on northwest news radio earlier this afternoon We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines And if we can't ban assault weapons then we should raise the age to purchase them from 18 to 21 The president used this national address to push Congress to take action in the aftermath of a series of recent mass shootings that have left dozens of Americans dead ABC News correspondent Aaron Qatar talked with former Secret Service agent Don michalak about the president's proposals tonight Don would law enforcement object to any of this that the president laid out tonight That's a great question Aaron And it'll be I guess the devil is in the details It would be very interesting to see what comes out of Congress to see what the senators put forward oftentimes there's a grand idea but then the details are what may be convolute inhibit progress on any one of the agenda items that president pointed out but so we're going to have to wait and see and then we'll see what law enforcement the law enforcement organizations in particular feel about some of these proposals But one thing that everybody seems to agree with I should say two things is that the background check system the next system is entire need of reforms It's outdated It needs more data input and specifically mental health data which a lot of that does not get included unless a judge rules that it's inputted due to HIPAA privacy violations So there is one hurdle to fixing the background check system which would have potentially prevented what we just saw in Tulsa And then in addition to that with the president didn't mention which is surprising is a school hardening and more resources for school especially in light that senator Schumer just recently blocked a bill that would refund the DHS school safety program and database that was created by Parkland parents in the wake of Parkland to give schools tools and resources to better harden and protect themselves in cases of mass shootings and active shooters Don Muhammad formally of the U.S. Secret Service now in ABC News contributor on some of the complexities of all this That's ABC's Aaron kursky And in the Texas school shooting investigation we're hearing from the teacher who had just walked out to retrieve food from a colleague outside moments before tragedy struck The attorney representing the teacher who propped open that door and later closed it said she is traumatized and heartbroken by what happened to those kids Some of them still recovering He said that she heard the kid screaming and thought she was going to die herself That's ABC's Marcus Moore and you baldy Democrats and Republicans today arguing over proposed gun control bills before the House judiciary committee Georgia Democrat Lucy mcbath lost his son to gun violence in 2012 I know that phone call Parents across the country know that phone call It's a sucker punch to my stomach every time I learned there's another phone call A phone call that brings you to your knees when the desperation will not let you stand That leaves you gasping for air But Ohio Republican Jim Jordan says the measures pushed by Democrats simply go too far and don't do enough The bill that Democrats are putting forward today does not help us to understand what's really driving some young men to commit these heinous acts The bill before us is short sighted and not solutions oriented it's a one size fits all approach that punishes law abiding citizens while doing nothing to make our community safer The committee held an emergency meeting to advance the protect our kids act a package of proposals introduced before the shootings in Buffalo New York and Yuval di Texas When a gunman stormed that Texas elementary school teachers and students started calling 9-1-1 and today a state senator Roland Gutierrez says those cries for help fell on deaf ears.

coming up in less than 15 minutes you will hear from the couple in Bellevue whose house was destroyed after it slid off the side of a hill who have the latest coming up The voting rights porch getting a little more momentum at least today with a holiday celebrating doctor king and win is covering this for ABC News and went more in depth with Bill O'Neil And members of dozens of organizations gathered in D.C. today right Right exactly Bill Here in Washington D.C. for voting rights advocates is MLK junior day of action What that means is hundreds of people just earlier today were crossing the Frederick Douglass memorial bridge and over a hundred national and grassroots organizations gathered right here in the nation's capital And that included advocates such as doctor king's family including his eldest son I'm not always sad the holiday should be a day on not a day off Today we're not here to celebrate We're here to be on They were calling on Congress to advance voting rights legislation And for the eldest son he was saying in his speech today that democracy stands on the brink of serious troubles And so bill they are saying at this point that the Republican controlled states are stripping away the very laws their father fought to attain and all of this is happening on the heels of what we are expecting for tomorrow Senate Democrats are set to debate voting rights legislation And so in a 50 50 split Senate we are expecting that the vice president Kamala Harris will be the tiebreaker in order to actually bring the legislation up for debate And just debate I will mention because usually it takes 60 votes to get this debate even to start And in this case they have this kind of legislative loophole They don't need those other ten votes from Republicans So it's a small victory for Democrats but ultimately though they still need those Republicans to end debate and actually vote on the bill which is not going to happen So at that point I will mention we heard from some democratic aides today about what happens after that They say likely what's going to happen on Wednesday is that the majority leader Chuck Schumer could challenge that 60 vote threshold otherwise known as the filibuster that they need to get an advancement of the legislation and in order to challenge it they just need a simple majority Another 50 votes is 51 votes in this case And that could come as early as Wednesday But again we heard those dates over and over the democratic senators Joe Manchin and kyrsten sinema They are opposed to changing Senate rules So it's likely all of this will fail in the end Yeah we've heard the president actually used something of along the lines of unfinished business and describing the voting rights legislation moving forward here Will we stand against voter suppression Yes or no Will we stand against election subversion Yes or no But it doesn't seem like he has a lot of sway over those two senators does he Right And he's tried multiple times to meet with them who's even met with them recently in the past few days at The White House and it doesn't seem like they're going to change their mind But that rhetoric is even pushed into today we heard from not only the president in recorded remarks but also the vice president Kamala Harris she demanded action on voting rights in honor of doctor Martin Luther King Jr. She pledged that the administration would keep up that fight calling on the Senate to follow through with what she called the responsibility to pass this legislation and she made it clear that she still making calls and she still having these meetings on this issue but it certainly seems that even though the administration is still pushing ahead it's all just like the lack of support that they need not only from Republicans but yeah members from their own party Bill Lots of chapters still to play out here that's ABC's M win with us on the Commodus line And Bill O'Neil with the interview that brings us to

"Northwest's only 24 hour news station como news 1000 FM 97 7 Thank you for joining us our editor Kathy O'Shea I'm Rick fence Isa Lisa jaffe with the day off Here are the headlines vice president Harris is a message after being asked about what's next in the administration's push for voting rights legislation The vice president saying quote we keep fighting noting that they're in it for the long haul efforts to pass new laws on voting rights have been stalled in the Senate Cougar games without food or drink Washington state university is asking organizers of all events including sports to refrain from serving refreshments through at least the end of the month allowing attendees to keep their masks on during the current COVID wave The omicron surge is hitting a lot of people hard in the midst of the cold and flu season The state of Utah's solution just assume its COVID and don't bother getting tested Alex stone is covering the story for ABC News and talked in depth with Taylor Vance ice Alex is this Utah just giving up on testing and tracking Well this is Utah Taylor saying that they are out of COVID tests and they need to get creative now that they say basically oval con rates in Utah are through the roof They are out of tasks that deliveries have not come through So the governor is telling residents the rules are changing now that if you have symptoms of COVID do not go out and get a test Assume that you have it isolate immediately goes against everything that we've been told for two years where it's always been if you have symptoms get tested immediately This is the governor today Spencer Cox saying that's not how it's going to be in Utah now The normal supply of tests that we had already ordered did not come to us And they're also ending school test to stay plans and allowing schools to go to online learning which had been illegal in Utah because case rates are up and they don't have the testing capabilities now to note where cases are in the schools So he says Utah is at a point where they just have to save your positive Don't go out and get it done We have to look at things a little differently And so we challenged our health officials and to advise us to give us the best data they could on testing Any answer points out Taylor the test turnaround time is now several days in any sense really what's the point that oma cron spread so quickly that if you're waiting two or three days to get results back what are the results really mean that often they come back after somebody's already been out there and after the person is usually on the mend then they find out oh yeah they had it The disease is much much much more transmissible much more contagious So basically if you look at the studies alpha was two times more contagious than the wild virus Delta was two times more contagious than alpha And omicron is two to four times more contagious than delta So he's selling folks in Utah that if they don't feel well they probably have COVID and just to assume they do Doctor Alicia Dolan is Utah state epidemiology She says these are going to be the rules now We're recommending people who have symptoms They really should stay home act as if they have COVID and not necessarily need to go get testing So Taylor comes into White House says that they're going to have a website up next week giving out 500 million free at home rapid tests other sources say that they're going to have tests soon But Utah is saying they did not get the deliveries They thought they were going to get Maybe they'll come in next week maybe not In the meantime they're saying you have symptoms don't go out and get a test just to stay home This seems like it's going to be a massive headache for employers though is this a temporary measure for Utah Well they're hoping it is Yeah but they say they don't know The waiver on schools going remote That is for two weeks that they hope by then They've got tasks for schools again But they say they really don't know that they have no estimate on when the state may get taxed back in You're right This is going to be every person saying I don't feel well I probably have a Macron I'm not going to be coming in It's also going to mess with the counts every day We won't know what the current situation is with COVID in Utah If people just aren't testing any longer And they're telling them you go ahead and get a task if you work in a healthcare environment If you are going to go see somebody who is an extremely high risk if they do get it But if you just think that you've been around somebody if you're afraid that you've been exposed if you think you have the symptoms they're saying then don't get it But that will mess with the numbers when we get the daily numbers of the positivity rate and how many positives there are every day If you talk turns into a black hole and we don't know how many positives are getting it'll mess with all of that Alex stone with us from ABC News Alex thank you 6 20 now and an update on all that's happening on Wall Street and we've got an unusual day today Clear direction for sure And your propellant insurance business update with Jim cesko The White House made

"Latest on the headlines we're tracking on Rick Finch Iceland with a Lisa jaffe and our editor is Cathy O'Shea President Biden is issuing a presidential proclamation revoking travel restrictions established last month On countries in Southern Africa while the restrictions were criticized worldwide The White House stood by them claiming they were in place for the country to contain the uma cron In announcing the reversal the administration recognized that vaccinated individuals are protected against severe symptoms and hospitalization The Washington Department of Health has reported a new record number of COVID cases tallied in a single day It was Christmas Eve state officials confirming that day more than 6200 new cases hit December 24th topping the previous record one day count by nearly 1000 And hospitals across the U.S. bracing as the surgeon COVID-19 cases fueled by the amaran variant continues Dan diamond is watching this all for The Washington Post and spoke with como's Bill O'Neil Okay Dan the numbers are grim enough What more can hospitals really do with this point to be prepared for what basically shapes up as a numerical tsunami at this point The good news such as it is that many of the COVID cases that are being picked up and the skyrocketing number of COVID cases really has extraordinary but many of those are not turning into hospitalizations and severe cases such as given the sheer number of infections There are more and more patients presenting at hospitals with COVID symptoms but they need for care and what hospitals can do is try and set aside more staff more space to be ready for the patients that are coming And of course they can do that but this of course on the other hand takes a toll on healthcare workers and more accurately to continuing tools they continue to see this The health workers that we spoke to for our story were despondent They have been in the trenches for two years They've had very few led ups given that COVID just keeps coming in waves And if you're a health worker right now you've probably seen a number of your colleagues apart either for better pay better opportunities people just burned out So there are shortages all across the economy but they're particularly acute in the healthcare setting And with a new wave of COVID cases coming the shortages are deeply felt You know we remember in the early stages of the pandemic the federal government all for hospital ships other sort of frontline hospital spaces What are they doing at this point to try and help out with any of this Federal government is dispatching National Guard staff to work in hospitals as needed some are clinicians but there are many national guardsmen who are just going to be doing backend work to make sure that the hospitals can stay running There's also an aspect from the federal government of relaxing guidance on what people can do if they've been infected The CDC on Monday made this national but a few days earlier the CDC had said that if hospitals need to rush infected workers back just because they need the bodies They can get special dispensation to do that Do we ever get to a point where we ask the question what more can we really do Are we kind of at that point at this point I guess it depends how you want to frame the question So what more can we do to say COVID there are still tactics that Americans have been totally embraced whether it's wearing masks better ventilating wounds and spaces taking time away from social gatherings if it looks like COVID is surging In an area but at the same time I do think your question is premised on the idea that this is a reality Now two years in they're not going to be any easy answers unfortunately And has been particularly challenging because the goal of trying to vaccinate our way out of the pandemic has run into the reality that acron can dance around the vaccine's protection So it is a frustrating moment to be sure and a pretty depressing one for folks at October That's Dan diamond read much more on this online go to Washington Post dot com And that's come as Bill O'Neill New data from the CDC could lead to a change in the incubation time for omicron cases of the virus and ABC's Alex per se has more from Washington The CDC released a new report suggesting incubation periods for cases of oh Macron might be three days rather than the four day period seen in the delta variant Researchers studied a small cluster of cases in Nebraska Incubation is the time between exposure and when you start showing symptoms Healthcare officials use it to determine how long a person should quarantine if infected The incubation period for COVID-19 was previously estimated at at least 5 days The authors of this Nebraska study say still more research needs to be done on omicron to confirm these findings Alex Boucher ABC News Washington And time now for our propellant insurance money update here's chuck sievertson From ABC News Wall Street now a

"Andy field is following this story and spoke with como's ELISA jaffee So Andy why are they putting that on the back burger Is it because they don't think it's going to pass by Chris One guy is forcing it His name is Joe Manchin he's a democratic senator from West Virginia He has been the fly in the ointment on virtually everything that Joe Biden has tried to pass whether it's voting rights whether it's expanding education benefits for people with very young kids or people who want to go to community colleges but can't afford it And also now this child care tax credit which expired this week on Wednesday basically almost every parent in the country was getting up to $300 a month deposited in their bank account By the federal government to help them with child care if they had kids of the age of need the child care That's huge for middle and low income parents who can't afford to go to work because they can't afford to pay for child care and have someone take care of those children That has disappeared That little extra has now vanished and there's only one reason for that His name is Joe Manchin because he doesn't want it build back better He thinks that it's too expensive It's going to drive the deficit up The White House's response to that is no it will actually help curb inflation and make it easier for parents to go back to work which will help improve the economy and they point to a number of economists many of them Nobel Prize winners who are saying yes indeed that is the case in Joe Manchin is not correct So is this why Biden is pushing the Senate Democrats to pass two voting rights bills instead Because he thinks that has a shot before the end of the year Well it does not have a shot because it can't get past the 60 vote super majority you need to get end of filibuster here The reason that they were going to be able to pass build back better is because it's a spending bill and there's some hocus pocus that the party in power if they have the majority in the Democrats do by literally one vote If all the Democrats agree then they can do it through reconciliation as long as it only includes spending The voting rights bill is not a spending bill It is a law that would help protect minority rights in many states where Republicans are now passing laws that will make it tougher to cast absentee ballots to find places to put those ballots The times that you can go and vote But the president did sign into law today the two and a half $1 trillion increase to avert a government default We would call that doing what you're supposed to do which is basically the government has never defaulted on its loans And of course Republicans painted this as a picture of well we didn't vote for this year to increase the debt ceiling so that we wouldn't default on the loans we've already made They're saying well it's the stuff Democrats from spending more money So we're not going to vote for it But that's not what raising the debt ceiling does Raising the debt ceiling does is you already racked up all these bills on your credit card You've got to pay the interest on it And if you don't you default and you go into bankruptcy and you can't have the federal government going to bankruptcy The vast majority of that money was spent in the last four years and all that debt was accrued not all of it but a vast majority of it was accrued under Republican House and Senate control and Donald Trump ABC's Andy field joining us from Washington thank you Andy And that's Lisa jaffe Many companies are beginning to temporarily suspend COVID-19 vaccine mandates for employees including Amtrak and General Electric This follows recent court rulings pausing these requirements from the Biden administration for healthcare workers and federal contractors but leaving it up to individual employers Many companies are seeing labor shortages while the omicron variant causes another COVID surge across the nation Your money at 20 and 50 past the

"24 hour news station como news 1000 FM 97 7 I'm Rick mansions with a Lisa jaffe and our editor Cathy O'Shea The congressional budget office is estimating the social spending package will add to the national debt The CBO said the $1.7 trillion bill would increase the budget deficit by $367 billion from 2022 to 2031 The number doesn't include any estimates for revenue raised by increased IRS enforcements of tax laws With floodwaters receding in parts of Washington state damage estimates are beginning and more rain we found fell in Bellingham from Saturday through Monday about 5 and a half inches the normally falls there during all of the month of November A record number of holiday travelers planning to hit the roads rails and air in the days ahead But what happens if airline suddenly bottleneck and begin canceling can TSA handle the crush ABC's Alex stone joining us on the komo news line with what we can expect this holiday saying home might be a good idea Yeah well you know every Thanksgiving I think in some ways you look at it and go oh it's gonna be a pain of the full airports and the full planes and then weather problems There are some indications that could be bad weather on the east coast next week So that can really begin to tie things up But the airlines on the TSA are saying they believe that they're in pretty good shape They're going to be okay Now timing wise Monday is when TSA workers have to be fully vaccinated or they're supposed to be fired at that point Whoever came up with that deadline of November 22nd right during Thanksgiving week but the TSA administrator is saying that they're not going to begin mass firings on Thanksgiving week They're going to counsel the workers and the officers first for a while so it's not going to be immediate He says it will be okay Here's what he's telling us We've seen our quite a significant increase in the number of our officers that are vaccinated And I'm very confident that there will be no impact for Thanksgiving And then over at the airlines Lisa you know they've had the short staffing issues heading into this American and Southwest have had problems in recent weeks and today we've been talking to the head of united Scott Kirby and he says they feel more ready than most airlines They think they're in pretty good shape moving into this and that they've got the staff that they need that staff never left them Here's what you said You're almost 5 million customers over the base giving holidays and did a lot more over Christmas But we did take in a proton that's to gradually ramp our schedule back up Instead of trying to go from zero to a hundred overnight we gradually ramped it out to make sure that we could operate reliably take care of our customers We were also the only airline that negotiated a deal with our pilots union to keep all of our pilots on the property So no one was furloughed or had to be retrained So they're not dealing with that time of bringing people back and having to go through the training process And he points out that every single customer facing employee at united is fully vaccinated they're the only large airline to mandate that So he says that everybody traveling they need to know that if they are interacting with the united employee that employee is fully vaccinated So a lot going on today is the first day of what airports consider the Thanksgiving travel period LAX They're expecting about 2 million passengers to go through over this period Tomorrow being one of the busiest days people bailing at the end of the week and then the Sunday after Thanksgiving that's going to be the busiest of all of them Everybody coming back at the same time But we are now in it as of today And be cautious don't want to be an unruly passenger because you don't want to be working The airlines say they have the note tolerance policy right now the FAA has it as well It just continues to happen with people getting out of control on board whether it be masks or alcohol interesting though united just this week broccoli said you know what Alcohol is back on board The hard alcohol that they had gotten rid of in coach and in first class more than just beer and wine Still I flew southwest yesterday Still they don't have any alcohol on board to bring back more soft drinks but they're still not going as far as alcohol The other airlines have brought it back So things are beginning to get back to normal but flight attendants Some of them were already the alcohol is what fuels a lot of the unruly behavior So united says it is being very careful about bringing it back but it is now bringing it back ABC's Alex stone safe travels Alex You got it Thanks Alicia 6 20 now at como news your insurance money update and here's Jim cesko

"O'Shea I'm Rick man sized with a Lisa jaffe A group of Republican senators has sent The White House a letter telling president Joe Biden to reconsider vaccine mandates calling them unconstitutional ABC's Andy field joins us with the conservatives behind this statement And what's their reasoning for wanting him to back down from the policies Andy Well they're saying that firing hardworking Americans are choosing not to get vaccinated undermines what they say is the significant work Congress and the Trump administration did to save millions of jobs It also makes worse the workforce shortages of employees are already facing And the disappointing data released by your administration outlines a serious nature of the issue they go on and on basically saying jobs are more important than health without actually saying jobs are more important than health And but they're claimed that the vaccine mandates are unconstitutional doesn't hold a whole lot of water because there have been other vaccine mandates In fact just recently upheld by the Supreme Court in the state of Maine the state of Maine requiring healthcare workers to get a mandate and the Supreme Court refused to step in and say otherwise So if it's unconstitutional the Supreme Court doesn't think so at least not yet Because their letter said that this was unprecedented doing these actions and that it's an overreach but they also come out and say that vaccines are important in slowing the spread of the coronavirus Yeah they're trying to have it both ways in terms of trying to look responsible but at the same time cater to the base that are shutting freedom when in fact vaccine mandates have been with us for decades In fact the better part of even more than a century polio measles mumps rubella if you go overseas yellow fever typhoid all types of vaccines are required if you want to live in society If you don't want to live in society I guess you could not take them But you can't send your kid to school without them So this is nothing new It's just for some reason this particular vaccine has become so politicized that we're seeing these extreme groups get out there and sometimes even threatening people's lives or livelihoods by having these protests This group led by senators Dan Sullivan a Republican from Alaska and Tommy tuberville from Alabama have they heard anything from President Biden yet because in his town hall meeting last night He said hey I waited until June I was trying to do everything until then And then the mandate started I don't think they're likely to hear back from the president this year He has the power to tell osha to do these things We do know that Florida governor desantis is already planning a lawsuit to fight any osha rules that require people in his state to either get a vaccine or get tested And remember that is the requirement It's not to get the vaccine for private businesses because the federal government doesn't have that power but they do have the power to set workplace rules and that rule can be either get vaccinated or get tested every week And some companies if you're taking me get tested option we'll say great You want

Trump pushes $2 trillion infrastructure package

"With so many people out of work during the pandemic is now the time to rebuild America's infrastructure and create jobs that's what president trump is suggesting and house speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn't think it's a bad idea ABC news Washington correspondent Andy field joint como's Lisa Jaffe and Rick van sice anti what kind of projects are we talking about and and how much would this cost well the president said the price tag would go upwards of two trillion dollars now we you know we just passed a two trillion dollar bills that would put the country another two trillion dollars of all are the doesn't seem to be any way to pay for it other than to stimulate the economy I the price tag was a one trillion half of that about a year ago well actually back last fall when none of the Democrats and the Republicans came to preserve the site the president and the president declined stormed out of that meeting because he said I'm not gonna talk about anything to you guys stop investigating we stop writing impeachment and that's the last time we talked about this well now we're in a crisis the president says interest rates are at zero is a great time to do it they have to close in a rare moment of agreement says yes it is and certainly put a lot of people back to work right away and what better time to rebuild the roads and bridges what no one's driving well and not just that but we're talking about other infrastructure to such is what the internet broadband and water and that kind of thing all these projects would be possible possible but of course then you have the usual problems of going through regulations and getting things approved an eminent domain names were rose would have to go through neighborhoods club them so as much as this sounds fantastic it's not as easy sure the bomb and the first thing is to get that thing approved in Congress we had something similar back in two thousand eight the problem is that the money got approved but a lot of it never got used for any of the construction projects well you talk about that you talk also any about the infrastructure bill as it's known has been kicking around Congress for for a while now but under these circumstances what's likely to happen next is anybody there up on the hill suggested Hey we better at least take the next step on this yes hello this is one of the personal information they when they come back from this extended recess and she doesn't expect Congress to come back at least until the end of this month or maybe a little bit sooner the president's talking about this but we don't know what the next few weeks will bring here we go at this news conference you mentioned I'm near you giving some kneeling Dyer's science fiction disaster movie like numbers in terms of how many people might die and that's it we all obey the stay home rules that's how bad it's gotten in other places those of the bottles are using so the advice that we kept hearing over and over and over again forget the infrastructure build the money being paid to post everything is simply stay home stay away from people and will that advice be taken by Congress me talk about them coming back is there a chance that the next session will just be delayed until this thing settles down it's possible I mean the president keeps pushing these numbers back further and further anti for anti poaching twenty percent of these models he basically said look we're going to see some deaths from this perhaps all the way into June June doesn't mean of pre pandemic is a lesson he says it will be getting significantly better before that but a lot of times of sickness in the the depths wag the actual lessening of the

NASA's InSight lander touches down on Mars

"Before we send people to the red planet. Here's komo's Lisa Jaffe with more down confirm. Celebrations at NASA today as its insight spacecraft successfully landed on Mars ABC's Clayton Sandell joins us on the KOMO news line from mission control with more on this journey that started more than three hundred million miles ago and cleaned. This isn't the first mission to Mars, but it's really a historic one. Is there going to explore inside the red planet? That's right. Yeah. And all that sharing was great. It's like winning an interplanetary Super Bowl or something like that. They were very excited to everybody at NASA here today, basically said that this mission went absolutely flawlessly. We got the first image just a few minutes after insight landed basically proving that it's stuck the landing the first Mars landing in in six years. And now the science can begin what scientists hope to discover. Well, they have basically three different experiments that they're going to deploy here in the next coming weeks. I have to kind of look at this landing zone figure out where the best places to use this. Robotic arm placed the sensors just in in the right space is so that'll come in the next few weeks. But these sensors essentially one of the assize monitor measures Mars quakes, they can measure even impacts from meteorites. Another one is a heat sensor to measure, the temperature of the core of Mars and another one is set to measure, just how much Mars wobbles in space, and that is important to try and figure out whether or not the core of Mars is liquid or solid or a combination of those two things they're trying to figure all of that album, basically paints a picture of the interior of Mars and scientists tell us that that can help us. Learn not only how Mars formed, but how earth formed and perhaps how other rocky planets in the solar system formed billions of years ago. It's almost looking at a at a time capsule. Really because they're trying to find out. What happened how come Mars is no longer like earth because we used to be very similar. That's right. We we had atmosphere together in our early days. We have flowing water and all of these things that lead to life and things thriving on earth. But for some reason. About a billion years or so the Mars district things went for medically different. So scientists are hoping that insight will kind of unlock a few of those clothes and saw some of these mysteries. This took a long time to make this mission happen, how difficult was it? Because NASA saying they had to survive seven minutes of terror to touch down on Mars. Yeah. You know, it's it's kind of a daunting thing to think about this mission being planned and executed over the last seven years or so and then it all coming down to the seven minutes of terror. They call it. I mean this thing had to approach the Mars atmospheric. Just the right angle twelve thousand plus miles an hour, a full stop in just about six and a half, seven minutes and all of those things had to work. Just right. I mean, the parachute had deployed the right time, but retro rockets had the fire and clear away the heat shield, the landing legs come down, the retro rockets had the fire so many things and all of it was really out of their control because of that communication delay. There. No, real common control of the spacecraft. They basically have hundred on autopilot and trust in the programming trust in the work that they had done years in advance hoping that it worked, thankfully it. Did I talked to one of the chief principal investigators on this mission? And he told me during that seven minutes of terror chewed off pretty much all of his fingernail ABC's Clayton Sandell joining us from NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena,
