Their opposition also hints at a willingness ...

One of the GOP's top voices on AI sounds off on the need for 'light-touch' regulation — and why the coronavirus pandemic should accelerate discussions in Congress on the future of work

Congress is routinely criticized for failing to keep federal regulations in-line with the fast pace of innovation in places like Silicon Valley.  Artificial intelligence is no different. But as the tech becomes more common-place in our society, advocates are increasingly calling for laws to oversee it.  Oregon's Rep. Greg Walden is one of the leading GOP voices on tech regulation. While any legislation on the issue is unlikely to move this year, Walden is still optimistic it can get done.  "It...

Ohio Democrats Join a Call to Support Joe Biden

Like just about everything else these days, political campaigning has had to rely on virtual connections. This week, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) held an organizing call to rally support in Ohio for Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. Ohio had been seen as solidly red. Donald Trump won the state in 2016. But recent polls show a tight race. A poll by Emerson College in early May showed Trump with a 3-point lead. Brown said the call drew 1,500 people, and he said Trump’s actions towar...

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said plainly Sunday that “we have a President who is a racist.” In an interview with Brown, NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd pressed the senator, a potential candidate for president in 2020, on that description: “ Let me pause you there.  You believe in his heart he’s a  racist?” Todd asked. “Well, I don’t know what ‘in  his heart’ means,” the senator responded. “ I know that he built his political  career knowing what he was doing  on questioning the leg...

WH Veterans Mystified By Jackson’s Desire To Move Into Trump-Era Politics

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson was tending to grievously injured military personnel in Iraq when he was summoned to Washington to interview for a job he barely knew existed. He didn’t see a way to get there. “I thought this was it — this is where the road stops,” he told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal this month. Instead, Jackson managed to catch a ride on a transport plane that steered the Levelland, Texas, native toward some of the loftiest corridors of power. Jackson’s journey has w...

Republicans Eye Making Bank Bill Even Weaker For Consumers

WASHINGTON ― While a piece of legislation wending its way through the U.S. Senate would do favors for banks big and small, the bill also has several little provisions benefiting consumers. Republicans, however, are apparently watering down at least one of those provisions, according to Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), the top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee. The original bill would have required credit monitoring companies like Equifax to offer free credit freezes to all consumers, and to...

Too Much Of A Good Thing? Candidate Glut Means Primary-palooza For House Dems

Katie Porter and Dave Min are the type of candidates House Democrats dreamed of recruiting in past cycles. Both are Harvard-educated law professors with impressive biographies, connections to powerful lawmakers and strong fundraising capabilities. The only problem? The colleagues at the University of California-Irvine are battling one another for the right to face Rep. Mimi Walters (R-CA) next fall. “On some level it’s bizarre,” Min told TPM. “It’s unusual, obviously, that two members of a small...
