TODAY'S HEADLINES, 5/2/15 *** The Obama administration has issued new rules aimed at protecting the drinking water of millions of Americans. The rules seek to end confusion about which waterways are protected from pollution under the Clean Water Act, specifying protection for up to 60 percent of the nation's streams and millions of acres of wetlands which were not clearly designated before. The group Environment America called the rules "the biggest victory for clean water in a decade," while Republican House Speaker John Boehner blasted them as "a raw and tyrannical power grab." *** The death toll from a heat wave in India has topped 1,400 with scorching heat expected to continue. In the hardest-hit southern state of Andhra Pradesh, temperatures hit 47 degrees Celsius — or 117 degrees Fahrenheit — while the death toll topped 1,000 in that state alone *** Norway is divesting from coal over concerns about its impact on climate change. The Norwegian Parliament has reached a unanimous deal to divest its $900 billion sovereign wealth fund from companies which generate more than 30 percent of their revenues from coal *** Kentucky senator and Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul has finally spoken truth for once and blamed the Republican Party for the existence of the self-proclaimed Islamic State. Speaking on MSNBC, Paul pointed the finger at "hawks" like Senator Lindsey Graham *** Nebraska has become the first Republican-controlled state to ban the death penalty in more than four decades. Republican Governor Pete Ricketts had vetoed the ban on executions, but lawmakers from both parties overrode his veto by a vote of 30 to 19 *** More tomorrow
