Two bills approved in the State Senate Wednesday could affect President Donald Trump and his associates.

President Trump honored the 2018 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox at a White House ceremony Thursday, lauding the team as a "shining example of excellence" in "an American sporting tradition that goes back many generations."

Roughly a third of the team skipped the event in protest. The...

The attorneys general of 38 states and territories sent a letter to congressional leaders on Wednesday, urging them: Please, let us bank the money generated by the country's booming cannabis business. Most states and several U.S. territories have legalized medical marijuana , and 10 states and the District of Columbia have legalized adult recreational use .
