Seattle mayor wants taxpayer money for homeless

Seattle mayor wants taxpayer money for homeless

Sixteen months after he declared a state of emergency on homelessness, Seattle's mayor is asking voters in this liberal, affluent city for $55 million a year in new taxes to fight the problem. But some are pushing back, saying the city already spends millions to combat homelessness, and things appear to have gotten worse, not better. In making his case, Mayor Ed Murray says the problem has grown exponentially and federal and state help is unlikely. He wants voters to support a proposed ballot initiative that would increase property taxes to raise $275 million over five years for homeless services - almost doubling what Seattle spends each year. Supporters say current resources haven't been enough to stem the rising tide of people on the streets, and the proposed levy will provide more housing for those who need it most. 'This is a city that's not going to wait for a dysfunctional federal government to show up and do something - because lives are being lost,' Murray said at a recent news conference. The mayor, who is up for re-election, would be on the same ballot as the tax initiative if backers gather enough signatures to qualify it for the August election. City voters have approved three property tax increases in as many years to pay for affordable housing, preschools and buses, on top of other taxes, and some say the higher bills are pricing out working- and middle-class families. Others are demanding accountability.

Democrats for delay in Senate committee vote on Gorsuch nomination

Democrats for delay in Senate committee vote on Gorsuch nomination

Democrats used rules on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday to force a one week delay in a vote on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court, as Democratic opponents sent mixed signals on whether or not they would lead an all-out filibuster against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. The delay by Democrats – which they can do only once before the Judiciary Committee – also included two other top nominations by President Trump to the Justice Department. All three of those nominees are expected to gain committee approval next week.

Deputies were called to a Broken Arrow home Monday afternoon on a report of three people dead.  It happened near 91st and 241st East Avenue.  Investigators with the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office say three masked people broke into the house.  Our partners at FOX23 tell us the homeowner allegedly shot all three defending himself.  
Neighbors in the Brady Heights neighborhood say they’re fed up with speeding drivers. We went to the area, where neighbors shut down the 900 block of North Denver for “Chalk the Walk”.  The event put residents outside, using chalk to redesign lanes, adding parking and a bike lane in addition to narrowing the driving lanes.   Artists also drew 3D chalk images, hoping the visuals encourage safer driving.   While the neighborhood speed limit runs 25 miles per hour, neighbors say they’ve seen drivers hit speeds up to 55.   Hoping to further encourage safer driving, many residents have signs in their yards that read “Drive like your kids live here”. The signs include a link to a safety group with the slogan.   Next month, the homeowner’s association says they plan to bring recommendations to the city about changing lanes to slow traffic.
A public meeting held in east Tulsa Saturday aimed to improve relations between law enforcement officials and the Hispanic community.   Jess Guardiola, with Tulsa police, said there is a big need for change. There are nearly 80,000 members of the Hispanic community in Tulsa County, but the Police Department only has 32 bilingual officers.    Officers are going to schools to try sparking interest among Hispanic youth to join the force when they grow up.    Guardiola said he’s hopeful the visits also help lower the dropout rate in Tulsa schools.    “They’re dropping out at record numbers. They’re joining gangs at record numbers. This affects all of the city, not just the Hispanic community,” he said.    He also believes undocumented citizens are afraid of being deported, some neighborhood crimes aren’t getting reported.    There’s also no option for Spanish on the Crime Stoppers tip line. It makes it that much harder to report crimes.
A 22-year-old Tecumseh police officer has died after being shot. The department confirmed Officer Justin Terney died from his injuries at the hospital. It was Officer Terney’s first year on the job. We’re told Officer Terney tried to subdue the suspect with a Taser. Gunfire was then exchanged. Officer Terney and the suspect were hit. The condition of the suspect is unknown.
Tulsa police identify a homicide victim from early Sunday.   Police say 42-year old Carlos Record was found by a family member, shot to death inside a house. The family member had gone inside the residence near Apache and Peoria and immediately left. Police interviewed some neighbors in the area, but still need to get more information. If you can help with details about the killing, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
Gasoline prices in Tulsa are at the bottom of the national trend. Drivers will be happy to know that the average price of a gallon of regular-grade gasoline dipped about one cent nationally during the past two weeks, to $2.34.   Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg says the price drop comes as crude oil prices also slipped during the same period. The lowest price for E-10 in the lower 48 states is in Tulsa at $1.89 per gallon.
White House: Trump not giving up on overhaul of Obama health law

Three days after a GOP health care bill melted down in the U.S. House before a vote, the White House said President Trump is not giving up on his desire to overhaul the Obama health law, as Republicans in the Congress also urged the President to keep pushing ahead on major health insurance changes.

“I don’t think it’s dead,” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said of the failed GOP health bill, which foundered even after repeated efforts by the President to twist the arms of reluctant Republican lawmakers.

“We’re at the beginning of a process. I don’t think [More]
