By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, NICKY FORSTER and JOCELYN NOVECK | Associated Press MISSION, Kan. — It began with devastation in the New York City area, followed by a summertime crisis in the Sun Belt.

Significant rainfall may be double-edged sword for northwestern US this week

Light rain fell across western Washington and Oregon, but areas east of the Cascades received very little ...

State revenue loss due to COVID-19 not as bad as feared

Most states' final quarter of fiscal year 2020 took a revenue hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But their annual tax collections, which were probably mostly electronic instead of as official state quarters, wasn't as bad as many had feared. (Photo — and coin collection — by Kay Bell) Most states wrapped up their 2020 fiscal year (FY) on June 30. As you might expect, those annual financial numbers were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. What is surprising, however, is that states' revenue ...

Climate change may prompt a new mass American migration, a move that could leave behind vulnerable groups and widen the wealth gap across the country

A firefighter battles the Creek Fire as it threatens homes in the Cascadel Woods neighborhood of Madera County, Calif., on Monday, Sept. 7, 2020.

Libertarian States

I currently reside in Oregon, however the overbearing liberalism being pushed down from Portland is causing us to move. I am looking for somewhere west of the Midwest that is fairly libertarian or libertarian/conservative. I was chatting with people from Idaho (as this was our first choice) and was told by multiple people that if we were not extreme far-right, they would run us out of North Idaho. With that being said, any suggestions? Thank you.
