After a payment pause that has lasted more than three years, more than 40 million student loan borrowers will be on the hook for payments starting in late August. A new debt bill passed by Congress removed any hope that the Biden administration would extend the pause again if the Supreme Court strikes down the White House's student loan cancellation. Among the most vulnerable borrowers are those who finished college during the pandemic. Millions have never had to make a loan payment, and their bills will soon start coming amid soaring inflation and forecasts of economic recession.
The Nevada Legislature convened Wednesday for a special session to consider whether to provide $380 million in public financing for a stadium that would host the Oakland Athletics on the Las Vegas Strip. The funding would mainly come from $180 million in transferable tax credits and $120 million in county bonds. Backers have pledged that the creation of a special tax district around the proposed stadium would generate enough money to pay off those bonds and interest. Republican Gov. Joe Lombardo’s office had introduced the stadium financing bill with less than two weeks left in the regular session. It is unclear how many days the special session will last.
Ron DeSantis is defending his state’s decision to fly migrants from the southern border to California. The Florida governor said Wednesday that California invited the migrants with its welcoming policies toward immigrants. DeSantis spoke at a meeting with sheriffs near Arizona’s border with Mexico, pledging to get control of the border and flexing his muscles on the signature issue for Donald Trump, his chief rival for Republican presidential nomination. California declared itself a “sanctuary” for immigrants after Trump was elected president, extending protections to people living in the country illegally. DeSantis said those policies serve as a magnet for people looking for a better life and make it harder to crack down on illegal immigration.
Roughly two dozen killer whales were spotted last month off the coast of San Francisco in an uncommonly large grouping of orcas for Northern California. The whales were likely together celebrating a kill of sea lions or seals on May 7 near the Farallon Islands, about 28 miles west of San Francisco, when a whale-watching boat tour saw them. Orcas typically stay in a family group of three to six whales. Killer whales are more commonly seen in the deep canyon beneath the Monterey Bay — about 75 miles south of downtown San Francisco — and can be spotted anywhere from the coastline to just 5 miles off-shore.
