The Michigan League of Conservation Voters this week released the results of its National Environmental Scorecard, which evaluates whether the state’s elected leaders in Congress are actually working to protect the environment—or simply ignoring the problem.
In what is quickly emerging as one of the most closely watched Senate races of the 2024 campaign, US Rep. Elissa Slotkin is aggressively acting on Stabenow's call for "the next generation of leadership."
The new Republican-controlled House has thus far failed six separate times to elect a House Speaker—the first time such a debacle has occurred since 1923. Until the new Congress elects a speaker, the House cannot assign members to committees, introduce or vote on legislation, help constituents, or even swear in members.
Control of the two chambers of Congress will come down to mail ballots that are still being counted in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, and Oregon—and possibly a December Senate run-off election in Georgia.
