The President and the Iran nuclear deal

In Morning Newswatch Podcasts

It appears that an Arizona republican senator represents President Obama’s best shot at getting at least one GOP senate vote for his Iran nuclear accord, and it’s not John McCain. It’s Jeff Flake, who may be the one the administration needs to trumpet bi-partisan support for the agreement.

Bill Seeks to Ban Drones From Flying Near Prisons

FILE - This March 12, 2014 file photo shows a drone landing after flying over the scene of an explosion that leveled two apartment buildings in East Harlem in New York. Brian Wilson, the owner, says he uses the aerial drone to document buildings, weddings and news events. The Federal Aviation Administration bars commercial use of drones no matter how seemingly benign. Officials say rules to address the special safety challenges associated with unmanned aircraft need to be in place before they can share the sky with manned aircraft and final regulations could be years away. But tempting technology and an eager marketplace are outrunning the aviation agency's best intentions. Photographers, real estate agents, moviemakers, and others are hurrying to embrace the technology.

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Tim Bivins, seeks to prevent drones from flying over prison yards and dropping packages containing drugs, pornography, razorblades and other contraband, which has happened in other states.
