    The House of Representatives on Wednesday night passed a bill to provide $28million in emergency funding to address the baby formula crisis after parents blasted President Joe Biden for taking too long to invoke the Defense Production Act. Republicans said the legislation was covering up for the administration's 'ineptitude' during the crisis and is only 'throwing money at the FDA' rather than fixing the problem.  The House passed two bills. The first was a measure approved on a 414-9 vote that will allow low-income women to purchase more baby formula through the federal Women, Infant and Children (WIC) program. The second, the Infant Formula Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2022, provides the funding as parents across America struggle to find supplies to feed their children and was passed on a 231-192 vote. Their fates are uncertain in the Senate, but Democratic Majority Leader has said he will try and pass the bills by unanimous consent - even though it could be blocked by one Senator.  Nancy Pelosi celebrated the votes, but Republican House Whip Steve Scalise urged his colleagues to vote no because the...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Scroll through Facebook and you’ll find the frenzy.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday the Biden administration is working with manufactuers to ensure baby formula makes it back on empty shelves as frantic parents work to ensure their children are fed. 'Ensuring the availability of these products' is a 'priority' for the Food and Drug Administration, Psaki said at her daily press briefing, noting 'they're working around the clock to address any possible shortage.' The shortage was exacerbated by the FDA's shutdown of an Abbott Nutrition facility in Sturgis, Michigan. Abbott is a major producer of baby formula. Three brands were recalled because of potentia bacterial infections, including Salmonella. Psaki defended the call, saying the oversight agency was doing its job to protect people.  'The FDA issued a recall to ensure that they're meeting their obligation to protect the health of Americans, including babies,' she said. 'That's their job.'

    Texas and New York-based hospitals have run out of the only antibody treatment effective against the Omicron variant, as New Jersey hospitals triage who can get it amid a nationwide shortage. The Food and Drug Administration resumed its distribution of GlaxoSmithKline's monoclonal antibody treatment over the past few weeks after it was found to be the only FDA-approved treatment that is effective against the Omicron variant of COVID-19 - which now accounts for 59 percent of new cases in the U.S. More than 55,000 doses of sotrovimab - the remainder of the federal government's order from the British company - were scheduled to be delivered to hospitals last week.  The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expects more than 300,000 doses to be available next month, a spokesperson said, as GlaxoSmithKline ramps up production. 'We are working with urgency and exploring options to expand our supply capacity in 2022 so that we can support more patients,' Kathleen Quinn, a spokeswoman for the company, told NBC News.  But the lack of available treatments now has left hospitals throughout the country...
    TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — There is a nationwide teachers shortage and Baltimore County Public Schools is feeling the impact. “They had larger than normal classes when the school year started.

Last month, WJZ interviewed the President of the Maryland State Education Association. “We really see a crisis in teacher shortages and other staffing shortages,” said Cheryl Bost, Maryland State Education Association President.

It’s support staff, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, nurses, it’s across the board,” said Cindy Sexton, Baltimore County Teachers Association President. READ MORE: Baltimore Police Union Advises...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — As temperatures rise, trips to the pool become more frequent. It’s a simple summer formula, but a critical nationwide chlorine shortage is making it harder to stay cool. At the Algin Sutton Recreation Center in South Los Angeles, a sign at the entrance tells swimmers that the pool might be closed unexpectedly throughout the summer due to the shortage — something that has already happened a number of times since it opened June 24. READ MORE: LADWP Headworks Reservoir Complex Renamed In Honor Of Late LA City Councilman Tom LaBonge The shortage began last August when Hurricane Laura decimated a Louisiana chemical plant that makes most of the nation’s chlorine tablets. That shortage of tablets hit private pool owners like Diane Nichols first, who was disappointed to learn that her favorite Santa Clarita pool supply shop was out of the tablets. “The demand, everybody heard about it and, you know, went after it all,” she said. “Except I was too late.” And a shortage of tablets means more people are buying liquid chlorine. “The liquid is...
    There is a growing teacher shortage in districts nationwide and the potential crisis is expected to stretch into the fall. A recent Frontline Education survey looked at more than 1,000 districts and found a record two in three reported having a teacher shortage, and few were immune from it. In cities, 75% of districts reported a shortage, compared with 65% in rural areas and 60% in the suburbs. These days, teacher Scott Sherburne's life feels more free than free-falling, but that wasn't always the case, especially last year. The 55-year-old spent 29 years teaching science in Livonia, Michigan. But after contracting COVID-19 in November and juggling increased demands at work, the pandemic pushed him to retire early in the middle of the school year. "It was an extremely difficult decision," Sherburne told CBS News' Meg Oliver. He said had the pandemic not happened, he would still be teaching. Michigan has seen about a 40% increase in the number of teacher retirements compared to 2020. Nationwide, it's a similar story. Nearly every state has reported shortages, and many districts...
    (CNN)The increase in the number of people cooking and trying recipes during the pandemic has led to a surge in canning -- because experienced canners are doing it more and novices want to give it a try.And that surge has led to a shortage in Mason jars and lids."There's so many more people canning this year than have ever canned. We have seen a big upswing in new people trying to can," said Nellie Oehler, the coordinator for Oregon's statewide food preservation hotline, who added she's been answering lots of calls from around the nation about the lack of supply.Marie Bregg, the owner of Mason Jar Merchant, a canning jar supplier, said she started seeing a huge increase in demand in the middle of August."Our sales basically went up 600% that week and haven't dropped since," she said.Read MoreMost of the demand is for the two-part lids necessary for canning, because they are single-use, whereas the glass jars can be used over and over. The lids have a disc that sits on the mouth of the jar with a ring...

As more Americans stay home and spend less cash, fewer coins are circulating in the economy, leading to a nationwide coin shortage. Though the U.S. Mint is now working to pump more coins into the system, the shortage has others wondering if it's time to retire coins for good. Coin usage is not the only everyday habit that could change forever after coronavirus.

Heres where some of the closures are expected Your Kids Can Help With the Nationwide Coin Shortage The coronavirus has gifted us many tragedies and inconveniences both large and small this year, and among the latest is one that most of us probably wouldn’t have predicted a few months ago—a nationwide coin shortage. © Photo: Billion Photos (Shutterstock) Reduced retail sales activity this year has slowed the pace of coin circulation to the degree that adequate amounts are no longer available in some areas, causing businesses to request or require that customers pay for purchases with cards or exact change. But the U.S. Mint says in a recent statement that the coin shortage is one part of this pandemic that we can solve, if we each do our part: You can do so by paying for things with exact change and by returning spare change to circulation. Until coin circulation patterns return to normal, it may be more...
    (CNN) -- Masks were the first to go. Then toilet paper flew off shelves. And while Americans are being nickel-and-dimed with coronavirus-related costs in a shaky economy, the latest national shortage includes, well, nickels and dimes. There's a coin shortage in the US. “What’s happened is that, with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy has gotten all — it’s kind of stopped,” Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell said during a virtual hearing with the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday, June 17. Gov. Greg Abbott recommends Texans stay home as coronavirus cases surge That's because the supply chain that coins usually flow through has been interrupted during the pandemic, Powell said. Banks and businesses have shuttered or changed the way they operate. And so there are fewer coins reaching the public. "The places where you go to give your coins, and get credit at the store and get cash — you know, folding money — those have not been working. Stores have been closed," he said. "So the whole system has kind of,...
