    The press release further explained that lines at voting locations have been "minimal," thanks in part to the law passed last year, which sought to rectify long lines at voting polls. Raffensperger attributed the record turnout to Georgia's secure elections. "It’s fantastic. What it shows is that it’s never been easier to vote in Georgia, but we have the appropriate guardrails, securities in place," he told WXIA-TV. "When you have strong security that elevates people’s confidence in the process. So now, we have photo ID for all absentee voting. We have 17 days of early voting. Just Thursday and Friday left to go…but we’re already seeing numbers pushing 200 percent higher than what in 2020," he added. Georgia's primary election takes place next Tuesday, May 24.
    RIVERSIDE, Calif. (KABC) -- Metrolink will reinstate service to 24 of the most in-demand lines in Southern California and add two new trains.It's part of Metrolink's biggest restoration plan since the pandemic began.The service update will also make four Amtrak trains available to all Metrolink ticket holders and will add weekend service on the Ventura County Line.Metrolink CEO Darren Kettle said he is "elated that we're able to restore our service close to pre-pandemic levels, so our riders can get to work, to friends and family and to fun -- more affordably and without the headaches of traffic and parking.''Metrolink says skyrocketing gas prices will likely be an incentive for more people to climb aboard commuter trains.READ MORE: Will Angelenos turn to public transit amid high gas prices?EMBED More News Videos "We want to become a transit capital rather than a car capital here in Los Angeles," said Dave Sotero, a Metro spokesperson.

    Nevada’s 1st Congressional District Democrat incumbent Dina Titus says she is feeling vulnerable for her re-election and that she hates her new district lines. Titus clearly feels that the race for her seat is highly competitive. Titus has strong words for the Democrat-controlled redistricting process, saying “I totally got f****d by the Legislature on my district,” she said in December when the new boundaries were announced. “I’m sorry to say it like that, but I don’t know any other way to say it.” Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight gave NV-1 a partisan rating of R+1 prior to redistricting and currently gives the seat a D+4 rating. Titus also said the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee agreed with her assessment and “were stunned” by the results of redistricting. “They couldn’t believe a Democratic Legislature and governor would do this to themselves.” she said. “They could have created two safe seats for themselves and one swing. That would have been smart. (U.S. Rep.) Steven (Horsford) and mine and then a swing. No, no, we have to have three that are very likely going down.” Titus...
    Sanctions against Russia, resistance in Belarus, and the success of Ukrainian drones and mines all threaten Russian military attempts to regroup and resupply—and the Russian military was having a tough time keeping troops supplied as it was. Today saw news of significant new Ukrainian counterattacks against Russian forces. Northwest of Kyiv, a Ukrainian offensive appears to have retaken Makariv, with additional Ukrainian attacks northward potentially endangering the long Russian supply lines that feed the Russian artillery lines threatening Kyiv. Ukraine also appears to be having some success dislodging Russian forces around Kherson in the south. This doesn't necessarily mean those successes will continue. The ability of Ukrainian territorial defenders to continue inflicting such consequential damage on Russian forces this late into Russia's invasion, however, remains astonishing. Here's some of today's news: Ukraine is on the counter-offensive, attacking Russia's entire NW Kyiv front Let's look at the Donbas front, the only place Russia has had some success Ukraine's most reliable source of new armor?

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Changes in New York Congressional districts are creating some controversy. New district maps could give Democrats an edge in 22 of the 26 seats. And as CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Tuesday, Republicans are furious. The 11th Congressional District represented by Republican Nicole Malliotakis includes all of Staten Island and like-minded neighborhoods on the other side of the Verrazano Bridge, like Bay Ridge. READ MORE: See Proposed 2022 Redistricting Maps READ MORE: See 2012 Congressional Redistricting Maps Under the new redistricting plan those areas are replaced by the heavily Democratic neighborhoods of Sunset Park, Gowanus, and Park Slope, Kramer reported. “The Democrats are always looking for a way to get ahead. Staten Island is more Republican than Park Slope. It’s a disadvantage,” Staten Island resident Anthony Bolanich said. “I don’t think it’s fair that the Democrats are reforming a district to favor the Democratic party,” Sal Campanelli said. “It’s so typical of them to do the imbalance,” Rose Campanelli added. “This is an assault on the people of Staten Island and southern Brooklyn and a blatant attempt...
    By Peter Valdes-Dapena | CNN Business With the trucking industry facing a shortage of qualified drivers, the US government is setting up an apprenticeship program for young truckers. The new program will allow people as young as 18 to drive big interstate semi trucks. The new program is coming on-line as the industry complains of driver shortages, which have gotten worse during the coronavirus pandemic. Last October, the head of the American Trucking Associations said the industry needed about 80,000 more drivers. Safety advocates, however, are objecting to the program, saying it puts potentially dangerous, inexperienced drivers at the controls of some of the biggest, heaviest vehicles on road. Currently, 49 states and the Washington DC give commercial driver licenses to people under 21, Nick Geale, ATA vice president of workforce policy pointed out in a statement. These younger drivers can drive semis throughout large states like California and Texas, he noted, they just can’t cross state lines. This new program will just take some of those drivers and train them so they can cross state lines in their rigs....

    Share this: Today, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) announced that New York will soon receive $428,072,000 in federal funding to strengthen drinking and wastewater systems, including the replacement of dangerous lead service lines and pipes, from the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This funding is the first round of a five-year investment authorized by this new law. “Sadly, too many New Yorkers still don’t have access to clean water – with lead, forever chemicals, and other contaminants posing a serious health threat,” said Rep. Maloney. “The landmark Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has delivered funding to New York to strengthen our water infrastructure and forge important progress toward a lead-free future for all. The impacts of lead exposure on children last a lifetime. In addition to these infrastructure investments, I helped deliver $350 billion in the American Rescue Plan to state and local governments across the country that can be used to get lead pipes out of our water systems. The President has made this a key part of his plan to replace every lead pipe in America. I was proud to...
    House Republicans devoted themselves to protecting Trump and others from consequences for criminal corruption. Now poised to take back Congress in 2022, their new agenda is blocking probes of an attempted coup and the Republican propaganda campaign intended to justify it. As things stand right now, Republicans are heavily favored to take control of the House in the 2022 midterm elections. This isn't because of dissatisfaction with Democratic results, or because a year before election day Democratic candidates have all botched their campaigns irrecoverably. It's because in more states than not, Republicans are the ones drawing the lines of where each new congressional district will go, and Republicans have already redrawn maps in enough states to be all but assured of victory when Election Day finally rolls around. That's the analysis from The New York Times, which has noted that Republicans only needed to flip a handful of seats to regain power and, based on the maps already out, the party's lawmakers have already redrawn district boundaries into ones that will give them those wins. The actual election part, the...
    (CNN)New York Attorney General Letitia James urged the Supreme Court Wednesday to deny a request from a group of New York health care workers to block the state's vaccine mandate, arguing that the emergency rule requiring vaccinations for certain health care workers is necessary to combat the spread of the virus, which can lead to a "vicious cycle of staff shortages and deterioration of patient care."James' filing was in response to a lawsuit brought by three nurses and a group called We the Patriots USA, Inc., who object to the fact that while the mandate allows exemptions for those with medical objections, there is no exemption for people with religious objections.New York attorney general releases former Gov. Andrew Cuomos testimony and other documents from sexual harassment investigationIt's the latest dispute concerning the various types of mandates to reach the high court, and it is nearly identical to recent cases brought by workers in Maine. The court has yet to block a mandate, although the Maine mandate went into effect over the objection of three conservative justices.The nurses say they object...
    DENVER (CBS) – Long security lines and parking shortages are still plaguing Denver International Airport. Now, the new boss says it is time to get things fixed. (credit: CBS) The new CEO Phil Washington isn’t blind to that fact that it takes a long time to catch a flight out of DIA. He says it is the third busiest airport in the world and the fastest recovering airport. He doesn’t expect it to slow down. He says, “I’m not sure where all these folks are coming from.” The airport was designed to service 50 million people but is forecast to serve 72.8 million travelers in 2022. Plus, there is a staffing shortage, so it’s no wonder there have been long lines and parking shortages as of late. (credit: CBS) Washington says it’s a problem he intends to fix. “I am in the terminal every day and I see the long lines,” Washington says. “We intend to make this better.” He says one solution is building more security lanes — the goal being to open four more lanes by early 2022...
    BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (CBS) — A plan to solve water woes plaguing Benton Harbor, Michigan got a shot in the arm on Saturday. In Benton Harbor – just across Lake Michigan from Chicago – residents are comparing the lead count in their water to Flint on the other side of the state. READ MORE: Chicago Police Restrict Time Off For Officers; Unclear If Order Is Related To Battle Between City Hall, FOP Over COVID-19 Vaccine MandateCity officials in Benton Harbor acknowledge the water supply has exceeded the U.S. EPA’s “action level” of lead, a 15 parts per billion threshold considered a safety limit for homes, and city officials are urging residents to use only bottled water. But local and state officials now say with new funding, they are wasting no time getting the lead out. A bottled water giveaway showed the depth of the problem. Most residents needed the water because their water lines are contaminated. The lines delivering tap water are ancient. “I don’t think I should be drinking this,” Kandice Harbor of Chatterbox Bar & Grill told CBS...
    A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction that will allow New York health care workers to apply for religious exemptions to the state COVID-19 vaccine mandate. US District Judge David Hurd made the ruling on Tuesday after 17 Catholic and Baptist health care workers sued the state last month, saying they objected to being forced to take a vaccine that used 'fetal cell lines' from 'procured abortions'. The order prohibits the New York State Department of Health from interfering with religious exemptions or taking disciplinary action against workers who have sought or obtained them.  Gov. Kathy Hochul, responding to the order, said she backs the vaccine mandate, whose original deadline was September 27, with the state's 450,000 medical and care staff expected to have received at least one vaccine dose by that date.  'My responsibility as Governor is to protect the people of this state, and requiring health care workers to get vaccinated accomplishes that. I stand behind this mandate, and I will fight this decision in court to keep New Yorkers safe,' she wrote in a statement. US...

    Two days after Hurricane Ida tore through, New Orleans and its surrounding area remain almost totally without power. Levees, floodwalls, floodgates, pumps, and other protections prevented massive flooding, but Ida knocked out all eight transmission lines into the city, plunging it and nearby parishes into darkness. Getting the lights back on will be an arduous process that doesn't yet have a clear timeline—but it starts with a massive reconnaissance effort. On Monday, there were about a million customers without power in Louisiana and roughly 50,000 in south Mississippi as a result of the storm. Regional electric utility Entergy said on Tuesday that it had already restored power to tens of thousands of customers and that 840,000 were still without power in Louisiana, plus 25,000 in Mississippi.  Entergy and other local utilities says they will need days to complete preliminary scouting and debris removal as they triage the situation. "Electricity is practically nonexistent for most people in Southeast Louisiana," Governor John Bel Edwards said on Monday evening. "I can't tell you when the power is going to be restored and tell...
    (CBS4) – The U.S. Department of Defense is in the process of replacing its 400 Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles as part of an upgrade to the country’s defense system. Small towns in northeastern Colorado are seeing the first movements toward that goal as military personnel visit plots of property surrounding the existing Minuteman silos in that part of the state. The Air Force is gathering data to compile an environmental impact statement, a necessary first step before any dirt is disturbed. And plenty of digging is proposed — approximately 1,780 miles of utility trench between three Air Force bases and their surrounding missile fields. Modern communications capabilities, most importantly, will be buried in the trenches, upgrading the connection between the bases and the existing missile silos. A Minuteman III missile silo in South Dakota. (credit: National Park Service) This includes missile silos in northeastern Colorado presently operated and maintained by F. E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne. A University of Wyoming count of silos found 54 near the towns of Peetz, Stoneham, Raymer, Crook, Proctor, Padroni, Buckingham, Sterling, Keota,...
