May 30, 2011 by legitgov

Tepco can't stabilize reactors by year-end: report 29 May 2011 Tokyo Electric Power Co. is coming to the view that it will be impossible to stabilize the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant by the end of this year, possibly affecting the timing for the government to consider the return of evacuees to their homes near the plant, Kyodo News reported, citing senior company officials. The revelation that meltdowns had occurred at the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors at the plant, most likely with breaches to pressure vessels encasing nuclear fuel, has led the officials to believe that "there will be a major delay to work" to contain the situation, one of them said.

Republican Legislators Push to Tighten Voting Rules

Republican Legislators Push to Tighten Voting Rules --G.O.P. efforts advance in 13 states 29 May 2011 Less than 18 months before the next presidential election, Republican-controlled statehouses around the country are rewriting voting laws to require photo identification at the polls, reduce the number of days of early voting, or tighten registration rules. Democrats say the changes have little to do with fraud prevention and more to do with placing obstacles in the way of possible Democratic voters, including young people and minorities. Democrats say the unified Republican push for photo identification cards carries echoes of the Jim Crow laws -- with their poll taxes and literacy tests -- that inhibited black voters in the South from Reconstruction through the 1960s.

Obama signs extension of Patriot Act spy powers By Andre Damon 28 May 2011 US President Barack Obama signed a renewal of three of the most notorious provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act Friday, meaning that the whole of the act will remain in effect without modification through 2015.
