Arguments for the case Friedrichs versus California Teachers Association are set to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this Monday.

Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 01/07/2016
Two anti-regulatory bills were approved in House yesterday and today along strongly bipartisan lines.
The HB 1155, known as the SCRUB Act, and HB 712, known as the Sunshine for Deregulatory Decrees and Settlements Act, were approved by the Republican majority en-route to a likely death in the Senate and certain veto by President Obama.
However, both bills represent a strong deregulatory zeitgeist on the right, and have strong backing from industrial lobbyists.
For more, KBOO reporter Sam Bouman spoke with Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate with Public Citizen, a consumer watchdog group based in Washington, DC.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency Tuesday, but not until after calls for a federal investigation into the matter of elevated levels of lead found in the water for nearly a hundred thousand people in the city of Flint.
Residents in the area began reporting water quality issues just after the city’s emergency manager switched sources for the town’s water supply late in 2014 from Lake Huron to the Flint River.
Progress Michigan called on the U.S. Attorney’s office to launch an investigation into the matter.
A member of their communications team, Sam Inglot, spoke with KBOO Reporter Robin Ryan about what led up to the current situation in Flint:

Two apartment buildings in Oregon City are slowly sliding down the hillside, according to a local geologist.
The residents of the apartments had to evacuate just before Christmas, and have been unable to return to their apartments since then.

But the development went ahead, and now, Professor Burns says, it is collapsing just as he predicted.
He spoke with KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg today about the history of the Oregon City site, and what’s happening now:
