Sanders, Welch applaud release of oil reserves 23 Jun 2011 A decision by the White House to release 30 million barrels of oil from the country's strategic petroleum reserve is drawing high praise from Vermont's congressional delegation. The Obama administration made the announcement Thursday, saying it was part of a broader plan to address elevated oil prices that was agreed to by the International Energy Agency.

NJ Assembly ends collective bargaining rights for public workers --Approves bills requiring public workers to pay more for health benefits and pensions 24 Jun 2011 Assembly members Thursday night approved a package of changes cuts to health care and retirement benefits for public workers despite a last-ditch but doomed protest by those workers and union heads. Thirty-two members voted against the proposal, but they were outnumbered by the 46 Assembly members who voted in favor, facing loud boos from watching union members. As the final legislative step cleared the way for Gov. Chris Christie to sign the bills as soon as Thursday night, union leadership damned what they called the betrayal of their membership by the Democratic majority in both houses.
Water filling 2,500 homes in Minot as river rises 24 Jun 2011 The Souris River's full weight hit Minot on Friday, swamping an estimated 2,500 homes as it soared nearly 4 feet in less than a day and overwhelmed the city's levees.

More than a quarter of the city's 40,000 residents evacuated earlier this week, packing any belongings they hoped to save into cars, trucks and trailers. Fed by heavy rains upstream and dam releases that have accelerated in recent days, the Souris surged past a 130-year-old record Friday and kept going.
House rebukes Obama over Libya 24 Jun 2011 The U.S. House rebuked President Obama over Libya policy today, voting down a resolution that would granted him authority for the military operation against Moammar Gadhafi. Members are now considering a resolution that would cut off some funds for the military operation, in protest of Obama's refusal to seek congressional approval for the action. "The president has ignored the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution, but he cannot ignore a lack of funding," said Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Hypocrite-Fla., sponsor of the resolution. [Yes, Obama ignored the Constitution -- as he does daily w. the killer drone war crimes -- but GOPredators were *happy as clams* when Bush did it though, right?]
