Kayla's Morning Kickstart: EPA, taxes, President Carter and DACA

New study by EPA

According to the New York Times, the EPA could limit research that the government can use to form public health regulations and would require scientists to present raw data for the agency to consider. It would be retroactive, so practices influenced by studies will be reversed.

Tax returns

A federal judge decided Monday that the President can't sue New York state officials in DC Court to stop the release of his tax returns to Congress. This is part of the impeachment inquiry because House Democrats want to see his financial records. As long as Trump is currently appealing rulings, the subpoenas will stay on hold.

Carter hospitalized

Former President Jimmy Carter was admitted to Atlanta's Emory University Hospital last night so that he can have a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain. The Carter Center posted a statement on Twitter that he will have surgery this morning. The pressure was caused by bleeding from recent falls. Carter, the 39th US President, turned 95 last month.

DACA hearing

The fate of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the US as children will be on the line today, when the Supreme Court hears arguments on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. President Trump called in 2017 for DACA to be undone. The decision will likely come down in June.
