A time of need

Though negotiations between House Democrats, Senate Republicans and the White House appear to have come to a standstill, state and local government leaders continued to ask for additional pandemic aid last week. Administrators said they've reached the eleventh hour and that without new, flexible funding that can be directed to critical services like health care and emergency response, they'll be forced to begin making difficult cuts. "The long-term costs and the economic damage will be even greater in the long run if we fail to act now," urged Clarence Anthony, director of the National League of Cities. Benjamin Freed reports.

Ohio has a new policy

Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose last week became the first secretary of state to set guidelines for security experts interested in helping to find and fix flaws in the state's election-related websites. The state's new vulnerability disclosure policy outlines the requirements, liabilities and limitations imposed upon security researchers who want to prod websites like those used for voter registration and providing general information about elections. CyberScoop's Sean Lyngaas has the details.


Improving STEM access

The Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology launched a new website last week serving as a central portal for all things STEM. The new website provides information on events, news and resources for students of all ages — K-12 through higher education — including career exploration opportunities for students and professional development for educators. Organizers said the new portal is an effort to build a statewide community of organizations involved in science and technology education programs. Read Betsy Foresman's story on EdScoop.
