"Good morning. I'm Lisa Ray. Um Governor Brian Kemp is celebrating big fund raising numbers in his reelection bid. The Republican kicked off his campaign in the South Georgia city of Perry over the weekend. But I'm proud to be here with you all as we officially kick off our reelection campaign because I want to continue to fight and to serve as your governor.

Though many expect his former rival, Stacey Abrams, to jump in the race, A recent report shows many of Georgia's federally funded apartments are vulnerable to natural disasters. Stephanie Stokes says that story. Natural disasters like hurricanes, flooding and tornadoes are all possible and increasingly common in Georgia. A report by the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation looks at how that may affect residents of government housing. It finds that more than 50,000 federally funded units in Georgia are in areas that are at high risk of negative consequences from natural disasters. The risk factor comes from a federal disaster agency and can mean property damage or displacement. That number represents about a third of the publicly supported housing in the state. The report says tenants and federally funded apartments are also less likely to have resources to prepare or evacuate for emergency events than other low income households. Stephanie Stokes.

"Live from NPR news. I'm Janine Herbst. The Trump administration is planning to withdraw its controversial nominee to lead the Federal Bureau of Land Management. NPR's curtsy, Glor reports. Democrats want William Perry Pendley to step down from the agency. Kenley has been temporarily leading the bureau since last August. His nomination was seen as polarizing. He spent much of his career is a private property rights attorney involved in a litany of legal challenges against the Land's agency. He's now in charge of his most controversial statements, however, came as latest 2016 when he suggested that federal public lands be sold off. That language is also in the official GOP party platform. But Penley's name being withdrawn is likely a relieved to several vulnerable Western Republican senators up for re election. Including Cory Gardner of Colorado and Steve Daines of Montana, who no longer have to be put in the spotlight for an upper down vote on Penley. Kirk Siegler NPR news Colleges across the country are implementing new policies on how they handle and investigate incidents of sexual misconduct. As NPR's Elissa nad wording reports this's to comply with updated federal regulations that went into effect on Friday. The rules, announced back in May by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, strengthen the rights of the accused and reduce legal liabilities for schools and colleges. They also now include dating violence and stocking. Critics of the new rules object to a mandate that both accusers and the accused undergo live cross examination as that could be traumatic for sexual abuse victims. The new rules also don't require colleges to respond to sexual harassment and assault. That occurs off campus. There are several ongoing lawsuits challenging the new rules. Listen, add money.
