Department of Human Services officials tell Hawaii lawmakers the agency may seek about $4.5 million from the Legislature next year to cover money owed by the state's troubled health insurance exchange.
Director Patricia McManaman told state senators during a hearing Wednesday that the department would probably pay back the state if it asks for the funds.
South Dakota U. S. Senate candidates talking about the idled Northern Beef Packers have been tossing out figures of taxpayer losses ranging from zero dollars to $80 million.
The governor's office says about $3.5 million in state grants supported the Northern Beef project.
Dillon Gee allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings, and the New York Mets beat Arizona 5-2 Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep and send the Diamondbacks to their sixth straight loss.
Arizona finished an 0-6 homestand in which it led at the end of just one inning and dropped to 1-11 in home games, including a pair of losses in Australia that started the season.
Gee also had an RBI groundout and made a nice play in the sixth after centerfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis failed in a diving attempt to catch Gerardo Parra's blooper.
Parra took off for second and Gee, seeing no one covering the base, rushed to the bag and tagged the runner out on the throw from shortstop Ruben Tejada.
Senators advanced a proposal Wednesday that would let the governor remove New Orleans-area levee board members for violating what he considers to be public policy, despite concerns it would introduce political meddling into state flood protection.
 Adley rewrote the proposal Wednesday to instead give the governor authority to remove members if they violate state law "or public policy."
Robert Travis Scott, president of the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana, a nonpartisan government watchdog group, said the flood protection authorities were structured with limited oversight from the governor to de-politicize their work.
The lawsuit, which blames the drilling activities of the companies for coastal erosion in Louisiana's vulnerable wetlands, was filed without the support of the governor's office.
Jindal has called the board's lawsuit a windfall for trial lawyers because of the contingency fee arrangement, which would give the attorneys a slice of any judgment rather than a flat fee.
The Drug Enforcement Administration announced Wednesday that more than $12 million in heroin and crystal meth reportedly was confiscated in the arrests.
