North American Morning Briefing: Stocks to Gain -2-

08/25/2022 | 05:25am EST

A federal judge blocked Idaho from enforcing its near-total abortion ban in certain emergency situations, an early victory for the Justice Department in a case it filed this month.

U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill on Wednesday issued a preliminary injunction that prevents the state from enforcing its ban in emergency circumstances where doctors and hospitals deem an abortion is necessary to avoid placing the health of a pregnant patient in serious jeopardy.


Biden's Student Loan Forgiveness Plan to Cancel Up to $20,000 in Debt for Millions

President Biden will forgive up to $20,000 in federal student loan debt for tens of millions of Americans, a move that will provide unprecedented relief for borrowers but is certain to draw legal challenges and political pushback.

Following more than a year of internal debate, the president said Wednesday that he will cancel $10,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers making under $125,000 a year or couples making less than $250,000 a year. In addition, those who receive federal Pell Grants and make less than $125,000 a year would be eligible for total forgiveness of $20,000, Mr. Biden said.


Secret Service Veteran Kimberly Cheatle Named as New Director

WASHINGTON-President Biden said he has chosen Kimberly Cheatle as the next director of the Secret Service, naming her to take over after a turbulent couple months in which the agency best known for protecting presidents has faced controversies related to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Ms. Cheatle will replace James Murray, who served as director since 2019 and temporarily delayed a planned retirement as the agency faced Jan. 6-related controversies including its handling of phone records. The Secret Service director is appointed by the president and doesn't require Senate confirmation. A White House official said Ms. Cheatle is expected to start her new role in early September.
