House committee says safety agency should have found faulty GM ignition switches in 2007

The government's auto safety agency should have discovered General Motors' faulty ignition switches seven years before the company recalled 2.6 million cars to fix the deadly problem, a House committee majority charged Tuesday in a new report. The report by Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee raised serious questions about the agency's ability to keep the public safe as cars become more complex.

Kansas election law looms large in US Senate race

The Kansas Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday over whether the Democrat who wants to drop out of the U.S. Senate race must stay on the ballot anyway, a dispute which could have a big effect on Republican hopes of recapturing a Senate majority. Democrat Chad Taylor, a county prosecutor from Topeka, threw the race into chaos earlier this month when he announced he wanted to be taken off the ballot, without giving an explanation.

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.

Sessions unopposed in primary or general election

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. Taylor ended his campaign last week, nudged out of the race against three-term Republican Sen. Pat Roberts by Democrats who viewed independent candidate Greg Orman as the stronger rival and wanted to consolidate most of the anti-Roberts vote behind Orman.

'Transparent' Indiana government often elusive

The promise of transparency in government is a popular one among politicians because it evokes the vision of a democratic government that answers to the people and supports the concept of public trust. That was evidenced last week when Gov. Mike Pence unveiled his new $9-million government management system.

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.

Lawmakers Seek Update from Obama Administration on Ebola Outbreak

Committee leaders in Washington are seeking answers from the Obama administration regarding the global outbreak of the Ebola virus, calling for more information on preparedness and response efforts at home and abroad. "While U.S. public health officials have offered assurances -- both publicly and during briefings with committee staff -- that the Ebola outbreak can be controlled, they are expressing increasingly dire warnings about its growth and the need for quick, decisive action," a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell reads.
