GILFORD, N.H. (AP) — A late-winter storm featuring snow, ice and high winds has brought dangerous driving conditions from the mid-Atlantic to the Northeast. Police in Gilford, New Hampshire, say a 16-year-old girl was killed after losing control of her car on a snowy road and hitting a tree. Around the region, officials have urged people to stay off the roads. Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy imposed a travel ban on state roads but says he expects to end it later in the day as the storm winds down.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Democrat in the House is calling on Republican leaders to strip Iowa Rep. Steve King of a chairmanship after his inflammatory comments about immigration. Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement today that Speaker Paul Ryan and GOP leaders should immediately take the chairmanship of a House Judiciary subcommittee from King. King said this weekend that America can't restore "our civilization with somebody else's babies." He stood by those comments in an interview with CNN yesterday. Ryan said last night on Fox News that he disagreed with King. Other Republicans have criticized King's comments.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top U.S. Marine says it's a problem he intends to fix. Gen. Robert Neller is talking about current and former Marines who are sharing nude photos of female Marines online and making lewd or threatening comments about them. At a hearing today, angry and skeptical senators said the military hasn't done enough. Democrat Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire said military leaders have vowed to correct sexual abuse and harassment problems before and haven't done so yet.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Prominent white nationalist Richard Spencer says he doesn't have any evidence that his nonprofit organization lost its tax-exempt status for politically motivated reasons. Spencer says he is confident his group, the National Policy Institute, can regain its tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The Los Angeles Times first reported that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service recently revoked the group's tax exemption for failing to file tax returns for three consecutive years.

DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines says it will offer free meals to everyone in economy on certain cross-country flights starting May 1. The decision at the world's biggest airline copies Delta Air Lines, which announced a month ago that it would restore free meals in economy on a dozen long-haul U.S. routes this spring. That leaves United as the biggest carrier with no plans yet to bring back free meals on any domestic flights.
