  • The accused gunman in last month's shootings at a Planned Parenthood clinic is facing more than 150 separate charges, including multiple counts of first-degree murder. 
  • Interior Secretary Sally Jewell says she's seen no evidence of criminal negligence in a toxic wastewater spill triggered by federal workers at an inactive Colorado gold mine.  Jewell said during congressional testimony today that the 3 million-gallon spill was clearly an accident, highlights the hazards posed by tens of thousands of abandoned mines across the country.  Republicans counter that Interior's investigation into the spill fails to hold the EPA accountable.
