Indiana governor signs bills targeting LGBTQ students

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana's governor has signed a bill that would require schools to notify a parent if a student requests a name or pronoun change at school. The bill is one of the final bills approved in a legislative session that had targeted LGBTQ+ people, especially students. Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb's approval of the legislation on Thursday comes in a year when Republican-led legislatures around the country are seeking to curb LGBTQ+ rights, specifically targeting transgender people's participation in sports, workplaces and schools, as well as their access to health care. Holcomb also signed into law a bill that could make it easier to ban books from public school libraries.

Russia says Ukraine sent drones to hit Putin; Kyiv denies it

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia claims it foiled a Ukrainian assassination attempt using drones against President Vladimir Putin, denouncing the alleged attack as a ''terrorist'' act and promising retaliation. Ukraine denied any involvement, saying Moscow could use it for further escalation of the war. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying Putin wasn't in the Kremlin at the time of the nighttime attack. There was no independent verification of the reported attack, which Russia authorities said occurred overnight but presented no evidence to support it. Nor did officials say why it took more than 12 hours to report. If true, the alleged attack is a significant escalation in the 14-month conflict.

Expelled Tennessee lawmakers both seeking seats again

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two expelled Black Democratic lawmakers in Tennessee say they want to be reappointed, then elected back to their seats. The comments by former Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson follow their ouster by the Republican-led Legislature for a protest on the House floor urging passage of gun-control measures in the wake of a deadly school shooting in Nashville. Both former lawmakers told NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday that they want to return to their positions as lawmakers. The Nashville metro council is likely to reappoint Jones during a specially called meeting Monday. The Shelby County Commission plans to announce soon when it will meet to fill the vacancy left by Pearson’s expulsion. Likewise, commissioners can reinstall Pearson.
