The New York state senate unanimously passed the assembly’s bill to repeal Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s corporate immunity law, which is at the heart of the nursing home scandal in the state. Cuomo has not said yet whether he will sign the legislation, which passed with a veto-proof majority.  But it appears the governor is already trying to do another favor for the health industry lobbying group that drafted the original immunity legislation and has been one of his major donors.

Also:

  • Major electric utilities are far from being on track to meet the emission targets set by the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Thirty million people are still waiting on their survival checks, thanks to two holdovers from the Trump administration.

A new Department of Labor study lays bare how the pandemic has exacerbated income and wealth inequality.
