California Reparations, Disney vs. DeSantis, Biden's Debt Relief & More

5 months ago

Good evening, I'm Will Mcavoy with the Daily Political Roundup. In California, lawmakers have introduced a comprehensive slate of reparations bills to address the impacts of slavery and systemic racism. The bills cover education, civil rights, and criminal justice reforms, but direct financial compensation for descendants of black slaves is not included. A federal judge dismissed Disney's lawsuit against Florida governor Ron DeSantis, seen as a victory for the governor in the battle over corporate power and freedom of speech. The Biden administration is moving forward with efforts to provide student debt relief, seeking to define financial hardship to expand loan forgiveness. The House passed a bipartisan tax bill aimed at expanding the child tax credit and reinstating certain tax cuts for businesses, facing an uncertain future in the Senate. In Colorado, the secretary of state has petitioned the Supreme Court to prevent former president Donald Trump from appearing on the Republican primary ballot. In legal news, the Fulton County district attorney and a special prosecutor have been subpoenaed in a hearing related to the criminal racketeering case against Donald Trump, raising questions about the impartiality of the proceedings.
