Some California Counties Winding Down ‘Project Roomkey’ Hotels For Homeless

SAN FRANCISCO (AP/CBS13) — Some California counties are pushing ahead with plans to wind down a program that’s moved homeless people into hotel rooms amid the coronavirus pandemic despite an emergency cash infusion from the state aimed at preventing people from returning to the streets in colder weather as the virus surges.

Texas Gov Stands His Ground On ‘No More Lockdowns’ Despite Surging COVID Cases

Don’t mess with Texas — even in the midst of surging COVID cases. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Monday said he won’t budge on his vehement opposition to implementing stricter COVID-19 restrictions, even though the Lone Star state hit a record high in daily infection rates over the weekend. On Saturday, Texas set a single-day case record of more than 12,500 COVID-19 infections, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Abbott, however, appeared unfazed by the alarming surge of...

'Endometriosis made zero sense to me': what will it take to stop women suffering needlessly?

Sunset recommendation for a 'blue-ribbon panel' on Texas police licensing agency: Grits wonders what's left to study?

The new Sunset Commission report for the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement came out earlier this month: A once-every-12-years review of agency functions and practices. The good news: They didn't short sell the problems. (See more background here.) Their issue #1 stated flatly that "Texas' Approach to Regulating Law Enforcement is Ineffective," an observation with which Grits wholeheartedly agrees. They described a "fragmented, outdated system with poor accountability, lack of statewide stand...

Giuliani Whiffed On A Legal Question Every Law Student Knows The Answer To. But The Underlying Issue Is More Complex Than It Seems

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. Rudy Giuliani had a very rough day in court as he represented the Trump campaign in Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. v. Boockvar on Tuesday. Giuliani had not been in a courtroom in decades and it showed. At one point Judge Matthew Brann inquired of him what level of scrutiny should apply to the case. Giuliani didn’t seem to understand the question and gave the nonsensical answer “the normal one.” “Wh...

Texas prison population ↓ by more in last year than most US states incarcerate

Grits mentioned before that Texas' prison population in the last few months plummeted to 21st century lows - a little more than 120K, down from the low-140s in 2019. At the time, though, one couldn't tell from the data whether this was because of people backlogged in county jails waiting to be sent to TDCJ.  Our pal Keri Blakinger answered that question a few days ago, emailing to say: "there are just 1,600 jail inmates that are state ready and waiting to be picked up, per Jeremy [Desel, TDCJ ...

Biden’s oil remark tests voter resolve on climate change

By Ellen Knickmeyer and Kathleen Ronayne | Associated Press OKLAHOMA CITY — Joe Biden is confronting the harsh political realities of combating climate change. The Democratic presidential nominee has spent months touting a $2 trillion plan to boost investment in clean energy and stop all climate-damaging emissions from the U.S. economy by 2050. The plan implied that he would wean the U.S. off oil and gas, but Biden wasn’t so explicit about the industry’s fate — until Thursday night. During the f...

Texas may not limit ballot drop boxes for U.S. election: appeals court

The Texas 3rd Court of Appeals agreed with the lower court that limiting the number of drop boxes would increase the risk that voters could get infected with COVID-19, and would infringe on their right to vote. Abbott has informed the voting rights groups who oppose his move to limit drop boxes that he intends to quickly appeal Friday's ruling to the Texas Supreme Court, effectively delaying the re-opening of ballot drop-off locations.

Eight months in, California is containing COVID-19 as other states spike. Here’s why.

Eight months into the coronavirus pandemic, California has become a rare case: a state that has contained the transmission of COVID-19 and isn’t experiencing another surge — yet, at least. Nationwide, daily infections are up one-quarter in the last two weeks, and the country just reported its most in a single day since July. Lightly populated North Dakota is seeing 85 new cases a day per 100,000 residents over the last two weeks. California? Ten new cases per 100,000, up just 2 percent in two we...

Texas Governor Opened the Bars and Lone Star Republicans Still Hate Him

After a summer surge that devastated the state’s plans to cut back on restrictions, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has tried to put his state back on the reopening track. In late August, he hinted at new reopening plans being on the way before rolling out an executive order in September that boosted the capacity allowed in places like restaurants and shops. And last week Abbott took action on bars in the state, which he had ordered closed back in late June amid the surge, saying the venues could soon re...
