Rick Scott’s (R) administration banned the use of the terms “climate change” and “global warming.” Earlier this month, reports said that officials in the Scott administration ordered Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administrators not to use the terms in documents or meetings because they asserted that the climate science behind global warming was not a “true fact.” More

More than 36,000 registered voters in Kansas are being asked to cast their ballots at new polling stations during the nation's first congressional election since President Donald Trump's November victory, prompting concerns that confusion could suppress turnout.
Nine polling sites — affecting 36,417 registered voters across 50 precincts — will be moved for the special election in Sedgwick County, which includes the state's largest city of Wichita, the county's election office told The Associated Press.
The polling site changes have raised concerns among the congressional campaigns and voting rights advocates because some of the precincts are located in low-income or minority districts where transportation may be difficult.
Election officials mailed notices of the voting site changes — along with an application for a mail-in ballot — about two weeks ago to voters affected by eight of those moves, Lehman said.
The iron-clad confidence is gone. The damage control is underway. Even before the House holds its down-to-the-wire vote on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, scheduled for this afternoon, the White House is making it clear that it has done all it can. Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who on Thursday expressed complete confidence in the bill’s passage, sounded a different tune on Friday, as Speaker Paul Ryan huddled at the White House with President Donald Trump to discuss a way forward.“The president has been working the phones and having in-person meetings since the American Health Care Act was introduced,” Spicer said.
With President Donald Trump hours from the biggest policy showdown of his presidency, top White House aides are perplexed that an outside group created to boost him at such critical junctions has been missing in action. The pro-Trump nonprofit, America First Policies, instead has been gripped by its own internal headaches as two of the six announced members of its leadership team have left in recent days, according to two officials involved with the group.
Democrats are plotting their next move after questioning House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ fitness to lead the panel’s investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. One step they almost certainly won’t take: a boycott. Even as they ramp up calls for an outside investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow, Democrats say it would not make sense for them to walk away from the House probe led by Nunes, the California Republican many now view as a lackey for Trump.
