"Round of fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks and extension of emergency unemployment benefits one hundred thirty billion dollars for schools. Three hundred fifty billion for cities and states and tens of billions of dollars for vaccines testing and the healthcare system house democratic caucus chairman hakeem jeffries of new york remains hopeful that the fifteen dollar minimum wage increase which takes place gradually over a period of four years. We'll be ruled in order but the relief. Bill which is biden's first major legislative initiative is unlikely to receive any republican support. But the relief. Bill which is biden's first major legislative initiative is unlikely to receive any republican support house. Republican leaders slammed it as a liberal wish-lists filled with extraneous provisions the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimated recently that raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour by twenty twenty-five cost one point four million jobs and increase the deficit by fifty four billion dollars over ten years but it would also lift nine hundred thousand people out of poverty. Democrats are pushing the relief. Bill forward under a budget reconciliation process that would allow it to pass with a simple majority vote instead of the sixty required. That means no. Gop support is necessary if all fifty members of the senate democratic caucus stick together. If they do vice president harris could break tie in favor of the bill but under the rules of budget reconciliation provisions that increase deficits over the long term or. don't have a significant budgetary effect are not permitted. Many democrats including biden has suggested that they don't think the minimum wage increase will meet those criteria. That decision is up to senate parliamentarian elisabeth mcdonagh even if mcdonagh were to determine that the minimum wage increase could remain in the bill to senate democrats joe manchin of west virginia and kerstin cinema of arizona have indicated that they oppose it. Mansion has suggested that he would like to amend the bill to bring the minimum wage increase down to eleven dollars an hour in wednesday's press briefing white house press secretary. Jen psaki declined to say whether biden would sign a bill with an eleven dollar minimum wage. And that's the big idea here. Two other stories that should be on your radar number one on wednesday. The white house made moves to regain control of the us. Postal service as the postmaster general testify before congress postmaster general louis dejoy says he will press forward with plans to raise prices and slow the mail and brushed off calls for his resignation. My post colleagues. Jacob bogue h christopher ingram and hannah denham report. That president biden named to democrats and voting rights advocate to fill three of the four openings on the postal services governing board. If all three win senate confirmation the nine member board will be made up of an equal number of democrats and republicans and one independent. The new slate will create a democratic advantage and potentially the votes to oust dejoy. A republican dejoy led the overhaul of the postal service over the summer. That led to service declines that delay. Customers bills prescriptions and paychecks with the current boards backing to joy was able to slash overtime pay and dramatically reduce mail processing capabilities and audit by an inspector general says. The move reflected a lack of preparation or concern for how it might affect service. Though the male slowdowns open to joy to intense public scrutiny. He has made clear that he intends to push through his agenda to rein. In the agency's one hundred eighty eight point. Four billion dollars in liabilities. More than seventy house. Democrats called on biden to move quickly on the nominations in a letter. Last week illinois. Senator tammy duckworth and several house. Democrats went further urging biden's of fire the board six sitting members and start from scratch michigan. Senator gary peters is tariff the senate homeland security and government affairs committee which will oversee the nominee's confirmation process. He says he's pleased with the biden administration's efforts to make the postal board of governors. A top priority the move would potentially benefit voting rights groups which have pressed congress to use the postal service to expand vote by mail access. The new block is likely to be embraced by the powerful postal unions whose leaders have privately expressed worries that joy. What cut jobs or contract work to private firms to reduce expenses. Dejoy spent most of the hearing dodging questions about his forthcoming strategic plan for the postal service which includes higher prices and slower delivery. That's according to people briefed on details. Who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the proposal is not yet complete. The boards lack of diversity. Also drew pointed remarks. During wednesday's hearing the body six sitting members are all older men and all but one is white. The postal services workforce however is disproportionately black female. Dejoy responded by saying the postal service would love to have a diverse board that reflects its population number to the supreme court. Spent two hours on wednesday trying to come up with a national guidance on when police in pursuit of a suspect can enter. Someone's home without a warrant. Generally the constitution requires a warrant but the case of lang versus california is calling that into question and october two thousand sixteen arthur lang was driving home on the highway ends and noma california. There were only a few seconds between the time a california highway patrol officer signal for lying to pullover and when lang instead turned into his driveway. The officer was pursuing lang for plane. His radio too loudly and occasionally beeping his horn. It was only after the officer confronted laying that he suspected the driver had been drinking. A test showed lang had three times the legal limit of our all in his blood. According to court documents he lost his license and pleaded no contest to driving under the influence laying appealed saying what the officer learned. Garage should not be allowed into evidence but a california with the police saying there was no difference in pursuing. Someone suspected of a felony and someone suspected of misdemeanor supreme court reporter robert barnes notes. That courts have said that does not apply if the person consents or if the officer faces exigent circumstances that require immediate action. The supreme court recognizes one of those circumstances is winning officers in hot pursuit of a fleeing felon stanford university law professor. Geoffrey fisher is representing lang. He says extending the hot pursuit exception to include misdemeanors would vastly increase the power of police to intrude on. Someone's home and property something. The constitution hold sacrosanct. Justice samuel alito says a video of the encounter made him doubt lang even knew he was being pursued. The officer had turned on his lights. Only about one hundred feet from lengths driveway alito. Ask if we hold that. Hot pursuit requires a hot pursuit. Won't we go a long way toward preventing warrantless arrests for minor infractions. Chief justice john roberts however worries about hamstring in the police same. Perhaps police should be even more worried when someone please over a minor infraction complicating the case. Is that the state of california. Thinks the state's court decision in favor of police went too far and is declining to defend it the california deputy solicitor general said. The state believes the hot pursuit leeway should be applied on a case-by-case basis when suspected misdemeanors are involved but he was swamped with questions. About how an officer might make such differentiations. The attorney appointed by the supreme court to defend the california's court decision says proceeding without a warrant. Should not.

"2 £500 freefall bombs, short range missiles, machine guns and rockets. A new report issued by US Senate Democrats says the controversial policies of Postmaster General Lewis to joy led to some significant male delays this summer. Jacobo Gage has taken a closer look for the Washington Post and talked about it with comas. Bill O'Neill, Jacob take us through some of the highlights contained in this report. This report issued by some other Gary Peters of Michigan. And when the postmaster general started rolling out some policy, strictly transportation schedule a ban on extra trips to make sure mail gets the weight ofthe time. The senator and his staff started investigating if there was any analysis done on the impact of those changes. And how much mail was really delayed and the key takeaways are first. The numbers in terms of first class mail that's things like bills and checks and letters and greeting cards. Um, you know, envelope stuff. 7% of the nation's first class mail was delayed in the five weeks after these changes will hold out and they started in mid July. That's an astronomical 350 million mailings were delayed directly because of these changes and then the other finding on if the Postal Service planned for this fall. The answer is no, I there was little to no planning whatsoever. When Congress asked for documentation about this, the Postal Service didn't turn over any. They said they didn't have any. When The Postal Service, briefed Congress about it. They have a single slide in a presentation, saying Well, common sense would dictate if we do this, this will happen. And, of course, the opposite was true that does this report specifically and on Lee address, first class mail, That's correct. Yeah, specifically, only just first class mail, of course, the Postal Service Has known many varieties of types of mail and you think about marketing male You know, the flyers that you get from dead that's beyond you think about packages and stuff like that. All of that, anecdotally I hear from postal workers across the country. Including some in Seattle has been delayed. But that's such an astronomical amount of mail. The dis report focused on first class male Now has there been any response from the joy of the U. S. Postal Service to this point, not particularly the Postal Service. I have said that getting the stricter transportation schedule will lead to improvements in service down the road members of the Postal Services Board of Governors those air folks who were appointed by the president confirmed by the Senate, and they oversee the postmaster general in the Postal Service. Have said the quote was they were tickled pink with Luis de Joyce. Changes on they said those changes starting to bear fruit. Now we really haven't seen that We have seen service improve, but it hasn't returned to levels previous of these changes. Now where do we go from here? Of course. The joy is no stranger to controversy. One of the chances he's back before Congress soon. You don't actually have been talking to sources about that asking them. Are we going to see the postmaster general back in front of Congress and the answer? I think is no, I don't know if either the Republican controlled Senate is not not have an appetite to subpoena him again, haven't testified against the Democratic controlled House, I think Feels like the questions they want to ask him. They won't get answers satisfactory and so look for them to conduct oversight in different ways. That's business Reporter Jacobo Gauge read more online at washingtonpost dot com.

Mail Delivery In Swing States Falls Short, Worrying Elections Officials

Mail Delivery In Swing States Falls Short, Worrying Elections Officials

"You're planning to vote by mail this election, there are troubling signs that on time mail delivery is not meeting the standards set by the Postal Service. A PM reports the investigations unit of American Public Media analysed first class mail delivery data, and it found that mail service in critical swing states is worse than a year ago. Elections officials worry that late ballots may never be counted. Tom shek has the story. The Corona virus pandemic has prompted tens of millions of people across the country to consider something different this November voting by mail, Wisconsin resident Eliza Werner is one of them. In June. She and her husband requested absentee ballots for the August primary. But she started worrying after not getting her ballot after waiting a month as people started talking more and more about the upcoming election. I just thought, you know I really should have received that by now. It's been a couple of weeks, she says. She was told other voters in the Milwaukee suburb reported similar problems. The clerk canceled Warner's initial ballot and re sent new ones. Elections officials say Nearly 700 ballots were not delivered to Milwaukee area voters for this week's primary. And that comes just months after thousands of ballots didn't reach Wisconsin voters in the April primary. And analysis of mail delivery confirms voter complaints. The Postal District serving eastern and southern Wisconsin repeatedly failed to meet on time delivery goal since 2016 putting it in the bottom quarter of districts across the country. Wisconsin isn't the only swing state Postal district failing to meet delivery standards. Detroit's on time delivery for two day male plunged nearly 22% since last year. None of this surprises. Tina Barton, She's an election's manager in Michigan and says some primary voters there complained about never even getting ballots in the mail. So even a couple weeks prior to that I had a City council member tell me that they had gone four days and had not received any mail and so about a couple weeks prior to the election, I was really starting to sound the alarm to people and I had important, says she started telling voters who requested ballots in the run up to the primary to return them in person. Timely mail delivery is important because Michigan, like more than half the states requires ballots to be returned by election Day. Postal officials are urging voters to mail their ballots at least a week before Election Day. They also say they're working with elections officials to educate them about election male standards. Speaking before the Postal Services Board of governors last week, Postmaster General Lewis to Joy said election male will be delivered in a timely manner. We have delivery standards that have been in place for many years. The standards have not changed, and despite any associations to the contrary. We're not slowing down Election mail or any other male. We are dealing with a directive under the new postmaster general that is not seeking to improve the delivery performance. Timmy Patrick is an election male expert for the Democracy fund. She says to Joy's recent changes to how the postal services run will make mail delivery slower at a time when it needs to speed up When you eliminate over time when you change the work ethos of an entire organization that is get the mail through To leave it behind. It's going to cause problems to joy made his changes after the on time delivery data was collected for the last quarter, leading Patrick to suspect It's even worse now. Individual postal carriers and a union leader representing postal workers also say the changes, air leading toe upheaval and significant delays across the country. Elections officials are urging voters to hand deliver their balance to a drop box or elections office if it's close to election Day. Still, some voting rights advocates say that doesn't go far enough. Allison Riggs leads the voting rights program at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in North Carolina. She says. North Carolina doesn't have a lot of experience handling mail ballots. Couple that with mail delivery worries and rig says it's better to vote in person were suddenly talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of new things to be in the mail. Back in Wisconsin, ELISA Werner says she'll again request a ballot be mailed to her for the November election. But she won't return it by mail.
