"Climate and the economic risks of a warming planet have become a thing for the fed lately chair j pals term is up in three or four months in a group of progressive.

And she's written about the central bank and what it could actually do and she says the list doesn't start at the fed. I believe i feel very strongly that congress needs to set the agenda in how economic institutions government institutions fight climate change or address. The the risk. It's posing the changes that are happening in the economy. I the federal reserve follows orders. Congress tells it what to do and it does that job to the best of its ability as the laws currently written the fed does not have explicit duties with climate change. But what i've ours is. The fed can totally be an assist. So we congress on that assisting before we go on what do you make of members of congress most of them on the progressive side of the aisle saying the fed has to do something now and the rest of congress is You know worried about debt limits and reconciliation and all the rest of that. Well i give those members of congress a lot of credit for making sure that the discussion of climate change stay front and center disagree with the calls to have the fed. Do the efforts.

"Attorneys general from twenty.

That lawsuit has litigated and now twenty-three state's attorneys-general in dc have filed an amicus brief. The attorneys general asked the district court for the western district of texas to rule in favor of the us. Department of justice by immediately blocking the texas law known as sba alleging policy violates the fourteenth amendment and should be struck down. That's supremacy clause. Right should be struck down while the case moves forward. The brief is in support of emotion. That biden filed late tuesday asking the court to issue that preliminary injunction temporary restraining order. So this kind of amicus brief backstop that injunction and the officials say they had interest in the case given that residents in their states could potentially need abortions while in texas clinicians in their states could also perform abortions in texas and anyone in their states who helped texan get an abortion. Could be open to legal liability under sba which allows private citizens to sue anybody who aids and abets an abortion. The attorneys general also noted. The texans are now seeking abortion outside of the state. As a result of the ban putting a strain on those states resources such impacts have already been seen or expected in states that signed on to amicus brief like new mexico california colorado illinois nevada ruling favor of the texas law could broadly have significant implications for the fourteenth amendment and for the rule of law by making it easier to enact policies that target other groups like people of color or lgbtq plus americans. That's according to the brief. This is part of the argument of the attorney.
