Police investigating as the medical examiner works to find the cause of death. If one of your new year's resolutions is to get out of debt, ABC News chief business correspondent Rebecca Jarvis has some advice. There's really three things you need to know here about all of this. First of all, people are taking on more debt. You might have done it over the holidays overall, people are doing it on their credit cards. Second of all, that debt is getting more expensive. The fed signaled, they're not cutting rates this year. That means those APRs are rising and there are things you can do to take control right now, wipe the slate clean and have a much better financially free year ahead. Gather up all of those credit card bills, flip them over and call the number on the back. And here's why you're going to call that number because you can ask the bank and the credit card company to lower your APR. And that might sound like, wow, are they really going to do that? Well, 70% of the time, they actually do. And you can even ask them to knock off some of the fees as well. Then you want to make a payment plan. Now, there's really two tried and true methods here. First, there's the snowball method. That means you pay off the smallest balance credit card first. You keep making minimum payments elsewhere, but you pay off the smallest balance first. This gives you that psychological jolt. You feel good. Oh, one down, a few more to go. Then there's the avalanche method. That is where you pay off the highest interest rate credit card first. Again, keep making those minimum payments. That method, avalanche, is going to save you more money, but you have to stick to it if you're going to make it work. So sometimes the snowball method just gives you the better psychological boost. And then again, is chief business correspondent for ABC News, Rebecca Jarvis. With the Supreme Court sent to your arguments over president Joe Biden's student loan forgiveness plan next month, the Biden administration has filed a Britain defense of the plan, ABC's Mark remould reports. In court documents the Biden administration is seeking to knock down perhaps the most tenuous aspect of the challenges to the president's plan, the right for plaintiffs to sue in the first place. The court is hearing two challenges one from a number of Republican led states and a second by two individuals. The Biden administration's filing first challenges the standing of both lawsuits saying neither should be allowed to sue and then second arguing that the secretary of education has the right to cancel debt to protect borrowers from the economic consequences of the COVID pandemic. Mark remalard, ABC News. The South Carolina Supreme Court has ruled the state 6 week abortion ban is illegal, Matt McClure, with the latest. The high court ruled Thursday that states 6 week abortion ban violates the state's constitutional right to privacy and is therefore unconstitutional. The court in a three to two vote riding the state's right to privacy applies to a woman's decision to have an abortion. The majority included justice Kay Hearn, the sole woman on the state Supreme Court, the Thursday ruling means that the state's previous ban on abortion at about 20 weeks stays in place for now.

South Carolina's Senate has failed to pass a total ban on abortion that would have prohibited the procedure without exceptions for rape or incest. But lawmakers approve more restrictions to its existing state law, which bans abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy. That law is currently blocked by the South Carolina Supreme Court due to ongoing litigation. The South Carolina Senate has proposed reducing the time rape and incest survivors have to seek an abortion from 20 to 12 weeks. And related news. The Michigan Supreme Court's allowing voters to decide in November, whether to enshrine abortion rights to the state constitution. The ballot initiative gathered over 700,000 signatures and support. This comes after a judge Wednesday struck down in 1931, Michigan, anti abortion law that prohibited the procedure unless the pregnant person's life was at risk. The Justice Department said Thursday, it will appeal a federal judge's decision to appoint a special master to review whether the FBI properly sees documents from Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. The appeal comes after U.S. district court judge, alien cannon, ordered the Justice Department to hold its review of thousands of classified documents recovered by agents executing a search warrant on Trump's home on August 8th. Many of the documents were marked top secret. Judge cannon was nominated to the U.S. district court for southern district of Florida in 2020 by then president Donald Trump. Her ruling this week led to widespread calls for her impeachment. Slate magazine legal writer Mark Joseph stern tweeted the problem, of course, is that canon is not a real judge, but a Trump judge and one of the most corrupt of the bunch, he said. Donald Trump's former White House political adviser Steve Bannon has surrendered to police in New York, where he faces state charges. He defrauded donors to an anti immigrant nonprofit called we build the wall. Bannon was first charged by federal prosecutors in 2020, but received a pardon from Donald Trump ahead of his trial. Two of Bannon's co defendants later pleaded guilty to the federal charges. New York attorney general letitia James announced the new state charges Thursday saying Bannon illegally pocketed donations that were given to fund sections of a barrier wall to be built along the U.S. Mexico border. You basically stole millions of dollars to line his own pocket. And those of other politically connected people. And today, he and we build a wall are being charged for defrauding. These donors out of more than $15 million. And for laundering the proceeds to further advance and to conceal the fraud. A Democratic National Committee panel has rejected a proposal to ban dark money funding during any and all democratic primary elections. The resolution authored by Nevada Democratic Party chair to this whitner would have also established procedures to investigate dark money groups and discipline DNC members for accepting donations from anonymous donors. The DNC's rejection of a ban comes after dark money flooded democratic primary races across the country this year targeting progressive candidates seeking to challenge democratic incumbents.
