    NEW YORK (AP) — Two-time Gold Glove-winning outfielder Tyler O’Neill went to a salary arbitration hearing with the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, asking a three-man panel to award him $4.15 million rather than the team’s $3.4 million offer. A decision from arbitrators Mark Burstein, Brian Keller and John Stout is not expected for several weeks. The three heard the case remotely. O’Neill set career bests last year with a .286 average, 34 homers and 80 RBIs, finishing eighth in NL MVP voting. He is hitting .213 with two homers and 19 RBIs this season. In his fifth major league season, O’Neill has a .256 average with 57 homers and 157 RBIs. He made $604,700 last year and is eligible for arbitration for the first time. No statistics or evidence from after March 1 are admissible other than contract and salary comparisons, timing set when Major League Baseball and the players’ association agreed to the deal that ended the lockout. O’Neill’s case was the third argued after Milwaukee right-hander Adrian Houser and Seattle second baseman/outfielder Adam Frazier. Seventeen...
    Democrat-sponsored legislation which contains the creation of a firearm buyback program and refers to gun violence as a public health issue is scheduled for Tennessee General Assembly Committee consideration over the coming days. The legislation requires the Tennessee Department of Safety to develop a firearm buyback program “in collaboration with local community groups.” It provides that “compensation for firearms that are voluntarily surrendered may be paid in cash or other items of value such as grocery vouchers, tickets to professional sporting events, and phone cards, as determined by the local community groups. Any firearm that is voluntarily surrendered through the buyback program shall be destroyed.” SB1773 and its companion bill HB1830 are scheduled for consideration on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 23 by the Senate Judiciary Committee and House Criminal Justice Subcommittee, respectively. SB1773 is sponsored by State Senator Brenda Gilmore (D-Nashville). HB1830 is sponsored by State Rep. Antonio Parkinson (D-Memphis). Action on SB1773 in the Senate Judiciary Committee has been deferred four times. Action on HB1830 in the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee has been deferred five times. The legislation also...
    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will begin accepting public comments in November over its proposals to toll the I-80 Canoe Creek and I-81 Susquehanna bridges. The two bridges are part of a controversial private-public partnership plan to implement user fees, or tolls, on nine major interstate bridges across Pennsylvania that would fund the structures’ repair or replacement. Residents can submit online comments for Canoe Creek beginning Nov. 1 and for Susquehanna on Nov. 8, for up to 30 days after each launch date. The Canoe Creek bridges project is estimated to cost $90 million to $105 million, while the Susquehanna project will cost between $175 million and $200 million. The toll money, if the proposals are approved, will pay for construction, maintenance and operation of the bridges. The cost to replace all nine bridges will total about $2.2 billion, per PennDOT estimates. PennDOT first released details about the tolls in February in the Pathways Major Bridge P3 Initiative, which was authorized under Act 88 of 2012 to leverage private investment in transportation projects. So far, Pennsylvania’s P3 program has executed...

    The Maryland Legislative Redistricting Advisory Commission held its first meeting Tuesday, promising a fair and transparent process as congressional and district lines are being redrawn following the 2020 census. The latest census shows the state has a population of 6.2 million people, meaning that each of the eight congressional districts will consist of about 771,925 residents. Senate Minority Leader Bryan Simonaire said he hoped the committee could come up with better maps than the ones drawn after the 2010 census, which he called “some of the worst maps in the nation.” Simonaire asked if the map creation would be a bipartisan process. “We’re not in the majority and don’t pretend to be there, but I would like to be included as opposed to Republicans going off and doing their maps, Democrats going off and doing their maps,” Simonaire said. Karl Aro, former director of the Department of Legislative Services and chairman of the committee, said “I think the idea is to try and build a map that everybody can find a consensus around.” Still,...
    Share this: After years of proposals and arguments pro and con, the MTA and the city and state Departments of Transportation have announced that they will hold 13 virtual meetings in September and October on the Central Business District Tolling Program — also known as congestion pricing. Meetings that would focus on the plan’s impact for Brooklyn, as well as for the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island, are scheduled to be held on Thursday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to noon, and on Thursday, Sept. 30, from 6 to 8 p.m.  Congestion pricing for New York City was approved in the $175 billion 2020 budget hashed out by the state legislature and then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Facing a $1.2 billion budget shortfall for next year, in large part due the pandemic, Mayor Lori Lightfoot will announce how she plans to close the gap during her second annual budget address on Oct. 21. The mayor’s budget address initially had been tentatively scheduled for Oct. 14, according to the City Clerk’s office. Lightfoot’s office did not explain the change in schedule, but the move gives her budget team another week to figure out how to eliminate a record shortfall. In a preview of her budget plan in August, the mayor said more than $780 million of the city’s budget shortfall was the result of tax revenue that has been lost due to the pandemic. The rest comes largely from the city’s growing pension costs. Lightfoot repeatedly has said the city’s financial struggles during the pandemic serve as proof Congress must authorize funding to assist state and local governments that have lost significant tax revenue. While the Democratic-controlled House has approved a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package that would include $436 billion in federal aid to...

    President Trump urged lawmakers to reschedule hearings focused on U.S. Postal Service oversight, suggesting they have been set to detract from the Republican National Convention next week. In particular, he put pressure on Sen. Ron Johnson, the Republican chairman of the Homeland Security of Government Affairs Committee, to change the date for a hearing set for Friday, which he erroneously said is scheduled for Saturday, amid rising concerns about now-suspended policies that have been attributed to mail delays that could have a significant effect on mail-in ballots. "Why are Republicans allowing the Democrats to have ridiculous Post Office hearings on Saturday & Monday, just before and during our Convention. Let them hold them NOW (during their Convention) or after our Convention is over. Always playing right into their hands!" Trump tweeted on Wednesday, also including the Twitter handle for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The Democratic National Convention, which began on Monday, is scheduled to go on until Thursday. Former Vice President Joe Biden was named the nominee on Tuesday. His running mate is Sen. Kamala Harris of California. The...
