Montana’s constitution gives the Board of Regents the authority to regulate the university system. The courts agreed with the board that its power includes setting campus firearms policies. The policy bans firearm possession on campus, with the exception of police officers and security.

California lawmakers will vote on how to spend nearly $308 billion in taxpayer money over the next year.

About 23 million Californians will get checks of between $200 and $1,050 to help with the high price of gasoline. How much money people get will depend on how much they make. Only couples who make below $500,000 per year and single people who make below $250,000 per year are eligible.

An associate of Rudy Giuliani who was a figure in President Donald Trump’s first impeachment investigation was sentenced Wednesday to a year and eight months in prison for fraud and campaign finance crimes. Lev Parnas had sought leniency on the grounds that he'd helped the Congressional probe of Trump and his efforts to get the leaders of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden's son. Prosecutors said the Soviet-born businessman's aid was in response to a subpoena and deserved little credit. They had asked for a sentence of more than 6 years. Parnas was convicted of using the riches of a wealthy Russian to make illegal donations to politicians who might aid the launch of a legal recreational-marijuana business.
