ISIS fight: Congress could vote as early as Wednesday

House Republicans will require the White House to provide a detailed plan for arming and training Syrian rebels to fight ISIS in exchange for giving it the OK to carry out the mission. The provision -- which is expected to be added to a must-pass spending bill funding the government through mid-December and could face a vote as early as Wednesday in the House -- would require the Secretary of Defense to explain how the Pentagon is vetting Syrian opposition groups.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee

Rhode Island will have a major role to play in the offshore wind industry, even though a developer chose to use a Massachusetts port to build a large wind farm, Gov. Lincoln Chafee said Monday. Rhode Island officials had hoped Cape Wind would use New Bedford, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island's Quonset Point for the staging and construction of a proposed 130-turbine wind farm off the coast of Cape Cod, bringing jobs and economic activity to both states.

The primary season just ended and the general election campaign now unfolding looks the same to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, tea party favorite, foe of immigration legislation and the only Republican senator running in 2014 without a ballot opponent of any stripe. "Jeff Sessions is probably held in higher esteem than the Alabama football coach and the Auburn football coach put together," says Rep. Mo Brooks, a tea party-backed congressman from the football-mad state.

Analysis: Kobach at center of drama in U.S. Senate race

Secretary of State Kris Kobach's position as chief Kansas elections officer is allowing him to play a marquee role in the political drama surrounding Democrat Chad Taylor's attempt to get off the ballot in the U.S. Senate race.

Bill to overhaul how chemicals are regulated faces uphill battle in Senate

Over the summer, Sens. Tom Udall, D-N.M., and David Vitter of Louisiana, the top Republican on the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee, provided a revised draft of their chemical regulation bill to committee chairwoman Barbara Boxer, who told The Associated Press this week that the draft still falls short. The original bill had been panned by some environmental groups, such as Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, who assailed it as "phoney reform," although the Environmental Defence Fund supported its introduction as a chance for an eventual breakthrough.
