RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Abortion rights supporters have created a website to call attention to Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's refusal to certify new abortion clinic regulations.
Stephanie Arnold is the chief architect of coochwatch.com and a former abortion clinic worker who now attends Eastern Virginia Medical School. She said Tuesday that in addition to using the website to focus on the Republican attorney general, abortion rights supporters plan to attend his public appearances and press him on the clinic regulations issue.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland legislative panel is weighing regulations proposed by Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration to require the use of the best available technology in septic systems to remove nitrogen in new construction in most of the state.
Supporters cheered the proposal on Tuesday as a significant step toward fighting pollution in Maryland waters. But critics say the administration is using a back-door method to implement a plan already rejected by the Legislature.
