Liberty state park in new jersey
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy is ordering that the Mississippi flag be replaced by the American flag at a state park that overlooks the Statue of Liberty because it has a Confederate emblem on it. The Democrat on Friday ordered the removal of Mississippi's flag from a display of each state's flag at Liberty State Park. He says the flag "is reprehensible and does not reflect our values of inclusivity and equality." The Mississippi flag includes the Confederate battle emblem in the upper left corner. The emblem has a red field topped by a blue X-shaped cross, dotted by 13 white stars. It has appeared on Mississippi's flag since 1894. Critics say it's racist.

Q&A: How soon will the federal government get back in order? WASHINGTON (AP) — With the longest shutdown in U.S. history officially over, here's a look at how the federal government will get back to regular business: ___ WHEN WILL FEDERAL WORKERS GET PAID? It's unclear at this time. The White House tweeted that it will be "in the coming days." Some 800,000 workers were furloughed or required to work without pay. They will receive back pay. While the Trump administration is promising to pay federal workers as soon as possible, a senior official says agencies are in charge of their own payroll issues and workers should check with their departments for details about when the back pay will arrive. Under the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act that Trump signed into law on Jan. 16, workers are to get their back pay "as soon as possible after the lapse in appropriations ends, regardless of scheduled pay dates." That means they shouldn't have to wait for their next payday to get … [Read more...] about Q&A: When Will the Federal Government Get Back in Order?
