HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y. (AP) — Officials investigating a carbon monoxide leak at a New York mall are concentrating on the heating system of a restaurant following the death of the eatery's 55-year-old manager and more than two dozen others being sent to hospitals.
Suffolk County police have identified the man who died Saturday as Steven Nelson. He's the manager at the Legal Sea Foods restaurant at the Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station on Long Island. Officials say an autopsy will to determine the cause of death.
Authorities say at least 27 others were taken to five area hospitals. WABC-TV has reported that all but a handful of the patients had been treated and released.
Police responding to a call about a woman who had fallen and hit her head at the restaurant started to feel lightheaded and nauseated and suspected a carbon monoxide leak.
Police say the incident seems to have been confined to the basement of the restaurant and that the leak appeared to originate with the heating system.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Industry groups and Republican-led states are leading an attack at the Supreme Court against the Obama administration's sole means of trying to limit power-plant and factory emissions of gases blamed for global warming.
The court is hearing arguments Monday about a small but important piece of the Environmental Protection Agency's plans to cut the emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases. At issue is a requirement that companies expanding industrial facilities or building new ones that would increase overall pollution must also evaluate ways to reduce the carbon they release.
As President Barack Obama is pledging to act on environmental and other matters when Congress doesn't, or won't, opponents of the regulation cast it as a power grab of historic proportions.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are considering an overhaul of the state's payday loan industry that would give borrowers more time to pay back a loan.
The legislation passed by the Missouri Senate last week also would stop borrowers from renewing a loan and would remove a cap on the amount of fees and interest lenders can charge.
Under current law, payday loans can be up to $500 and last from 14 to 31 days. Loans can also be renewed up to six times.
Sponsoring Representative Mike Cunningham of Rogersville says the cap is not necessary since loans can't be renewed, and that market forces would set the interest rates. The measure's opponents said the bill was a step in the right direction, but doesn't go far enough.
