LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Top House Republicans are hoping to win over more fellow GOP lawmakers by proposing changes to the plan to repeal and replace "Obamacare." The changes include providing more help for older people and requiring able-bodied Medicaid recipients to work. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump told supporters at a Monday night rally in Louisville, Kentucky that Americans cannot get a big tax cut unless "Obamacare" is replaced.

NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News Channel has pulled legal analyst Andrew Napolitano from the air after he claimed last week that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump. Britain dismissed the report as "nonsense" and on Monday, FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress that there's no evidence to support President Donald Trump's charge that the Obama administration wiretapped him at Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Lawmakers in Arkansas have approved a measure requiring voters to show photo ID before casting a ballot. The legislation now goes to the governor's desk. The Arkansas Legislature enacted a similar voter ID law in 2013, but the measure was struck down by the state Supreme Court the following year.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Some of the wealthiest New Yorkers are asking the state to raise their taxes. Eighty people including George Soros, Steven Rockefeller and Abigail Disney have written to lawmakers and Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo saying they and other top earners should pay more to support schools, roads, bridges and programs to help poor and homeless residents of the state.

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — A woman in Mississippi is accused of doing something bad with the good book. The sheriff in Lee County tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that a woman dropped off a Bible for an inmate convicted last week of methamphetamine trafficking and awaiting transfer to state prison. There was a bulge in the back cover of the Bible, so authorities cut it open and found a powdery substance, which was tested and determined to be meth. Thirty-year-old Courtney Ford faces charges.
