The Senate voted, 60-37, to overcome a supermajority threshold to start the clock on a series of votes this week aimed at getting a group of trade bills to Obama's desk before the July 4 recess begins next week. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat, opposed it. Indiana's economy is more dependent on exports than most states, according to a study from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, along with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, are pushing a two-pronged strategy for a package of bills critical to Obama's trade agenda. "Speaker Boehner is clearly committed to building trust across the aisle on this issue, and I am as well," McConnell said Tuesday, prior to the vote that paved the way for a Wednesday final passage vote on trade promotion authority. TPA, commonly known as "fast track" because it creates an expedited process to get trade bills through Congress, already passed the Senate last month as part of a legislative package that also included trade adjustment assistance, which helps... The package hit a dead end in the U. S. House, where Democrats rebelled against the White House and voted down TAA, which they support, in a move aimed at slowing down fast track, which they oppose. Indiana’s two House Democrats, along with four of the seven Hoosier House Republicans, voted against trade adjustment assistance.
The lead was six points for Maryland with a little over five minutes remaining Wednesday night and the No. 19 Terps seemed on the verge of finally pulling away from Indiana at Xfinity Center. Five minutes seemed like five hours, yet in the end exhaustion for both the Terps and their fans turned into elation when Ferrell missed two shots in the final six seconds to help Maryland preserve a much-needed 68-66 victory. The win for Maryland (20-5, 8-4) not only erased the memories of three straight road blowout losses – including a 19-point loss in Bloomington last month and an even-more crushing 16-point demolition at Iowa on Sunday – but kept the Terps in a tie... Asked what was going through his mind when Ferrell missed a wide-open 3-pointer from the top of the key and then a short follow after senior guard Dez Wells inadvertently knocked a rebound out of the hands of teammate Richaud Pack, Maryland coach... He played a lot of minutes, there was a lot on his plate, I was hoping he’d miss it. I’m like any other fan in the building, saying, ‘Miss, I hope it goes off to his side. Said Indiana coach Tom Crean: “I thought it was in, I thought the last one (an off-balanced 12-footer that rolled around the rim) was in. We were going to get the best shot and certainly you want to shoot it early enough so you have a chance for...
In his latest effort to clarify the Indiana's controversial new "religious freedom" law, Gov. Mike Pence called on lawmakers Tuesday to pass legislation clarifying that it does not allow business owners to discriminate in providing services. But without a specific proposal in hand, he left a big question unanswered: Will the clarifying language go far enough to extinguish the national firestorm surrounding the new law. Pence said he wants legislation on his desk by the end of the week. "After much reflection and in consultation with leadership in the General Assembly, I've come to the conclusion that it would be helpful to move legislation this week that makes it clear that this law does not give businesses a right to deny... But Pence said he opposes the fix that many critics of the law have demanded: A statewide ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation. I mean, we are talking about the religious freedom restoration act, which is about restoring the highest level of scrutiny in our state courts in matters of government action that intrude upon the religious liberty of Hoosiers. Social conservatives who believe the law could be used to protect Christian business owners who deny services for same-sex weddings fear a legislative fix could water down what they see as an important religious protection.
