WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's budget director is downplaying the Congressional Budget Office report that says 14 million people would lose insurance coverage in the first year of the GOP replacement for Obamacare. Mick Mulvaney tells MSNBC that he doesn't think the numbers are accurate. And he also says coverage itself isn't the answer, adding, "People don't get better with coverage."

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is meeting with the Deputy Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman. The pair met in the Oval Office before sitting down for lunch. The prince is Saudi Arabia's second-in-line to the throne and his trip marks the highest-level visit to Washington by a Saudi royal since November's presidential election. The president had originally been scheduled to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel (AHN'-geh-lah MEHR'-kuhl) today, but that visit has been pushed back to Friday because of the snow.

NEW YORK (AP) — The storm that's pounding parts of the Northeast has dropped almost two feet of snow in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains and the northern reaches of New Jersey, yet it didn't perform to forecast expectations in New York City, the rest of New Jersey and Philadelphia. That's because the line between a rainy wintry mix and snow ended up farther west than anticipated.

NEW YORK (AP) — Nearly 6,000 flights have been grounded by the late-winter snowstorm in the Northeast. The storm has knocked out power to almost a quarter of a million homes and businesses from Virginia northward, and it's closed schools in cities big and small. Amtrak suspended service, and the post office halted mail delivery.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police investigating the killing of two teenage girls in northwestern Indiana say they have interviewed more than 300 people and are following up on thousands of tips. Fourteen-year-old Liberty German and 13-year-old Abigail Williams vanished Feb. 13 while hiking near Delphi, about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Their bodies were found the next day in a wooded area. Police say they've cleared more than 200 people identified as resembling a man shown in two grainy photos taken from one of the girl's cellphones. Investigators are still following up on tips about roughly another 100 people, and they're still getting about 200 new tips a day in the investigation.
