States ratchet up transgender battle with lawsuit against U.S.

A sign protesting a recent North Carolina law restricting transgender bathroom access in Durham, North CarolinaOfficials from 11 U.S. states sued the Obama administration on Wednesday to overturn a directive telling schools to let transgender students use bathrooms matching their gender identity, decrying the policy as "a massive social experiment." Ramping up the simmering battles over contentious cultural issues in America, the states, led by Texas and most with Republican governors, accused the federal government of rewriting laws by "administrative fiat." "We are willing to fight this all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to," Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told reporters in Austin. Amid a national debate on transgender rights, President Barack Obama's administration on May 13 told U.S. public schools that transgender students must be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice, upsetting Republicans and paving the way for fights over federal funding and legal authority.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley speaks during a campaign event for U.S. Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio at Swamp Rabbit Crossfit in GreenvilleBy Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, Texas (Reuters) - Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley on Wednesday signed into law a bill banning most abortions after 19 weeks of pregnancy unless the mother's life is at risk, a spokesperson told Reuters on Wednesday. The South Carolina legislature passed the bill last week, making it the 17th U.S. state to approve such a ban. A signing ceremony will take place on a date to be announced later, said Haley representative Chaney Adams.

Kentucky judge rules Louisville can remove Confederate monument

A Confederate battle flag flies in front of a home in LibertyThe city of Louisville, Kentucky can remove a 121-year-old monument to Confederate soldiers that critics have objected to as an emblem of slavery, a state judge ruled on Wednesday. In a ruling from the bench, Jefferson Circuit Judge Judith McDonald-Burkman dissolved her temporary order from three weeks ago that had blocked the city and a local university from taking down the monument. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said he would work on relocating the 70-foot-high monument after getting the judge's written order, according to a statement from his office.

Bill to end New York tampon tax heads to governor
(Reuters) - A bill to end sales taxes on tampons and sanitary napkins received final approval from New York lawmakers on Wednesday and is headed to the governor, who voiced strong support of the legislation. Several other states have already enacted such exemptions as a movement builds against a tax that critics say unjustly targets women. The New York State Senate on Wednesday unanimously passed the bill, which exempts feminine hygiene products like sanitary napkins, tampons, and panty liners from the state's sales and compensating use tax.

Spieth tries to relax at Colonial after another stumble

Jordan Spieth stumbled in the final round at the Byron Nelson ChampionshipReigning US Open champion Jordan Spieth has tried to relax ahead of Thursday's start of the US PGA's event at Colonial, hoping to find his form and put recent struggles behind him. The world number two from Texas stumbled in the final round last Sunday at the Byron Nelson Championship after lurking one shot off the lead after 36 and 54 holes at his hometown event. Add to that a missed cut at the Players Championship and a back-nine Sunday meltdown that cost him a repeat Masters crown last month at Augusta National and it's easy to understand why he's seeking to find the fun and shake swing problems at the Dean and Deluca International in Fort Worth, Texas.

A security camera hangs near a corner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) building in WashingtonA former National Basketball Association player famed for delivering a devastating punch during a 1977 on-court fight has been arrested and charged with fraud in conspiracy with a National Football League Hall of Famer, U.S. prosecutors said on Wednesday. A grand jury indictment alleges retired basketball player Kermit Washington, 64, defrauded donors, eBay, PayPal and the Internal Revenue Service for nearly three years by persuading people, including former professional athletes, to make donations to Project Contact Africa, a charity he had founded. Ron Mix, a professional football Hall of Famer who played most of his career with the San Diego Chargers, pleaded guilty on Monday to one count of filing a false tax return in connection with the case, prosecutors said in a statement.

Asian shares look set to advance, oil prices eye $50

Visitors looks at an electronic board showing the Japan's Nikkei average at the Tokyo Stock Exchange in TokyoBy Hideyuki Sano TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares look set to extend their recovery from 12-week lows on Thursday after renewed optimism on European banks' prospects and a rise in oil prices to near $50 a barrel helped lift global shares. European banks were leading the gains with rise of 6.8 percent in the last two sessions, benefiting from a decision by euro zone finance ministers to unlock new funds for Greece and to give it a firm offer of debt relief. Energy stocks outperformed on the back of continued recovery in oil prices, which hit seven-month highs after the U.S. government reported a larger-than-expected drop in crude inventories.

HP Inc profit beats Street amid weak market for PCs, printers

An attendee at the Microsoft Ignite technology conference walks past the Hewlett-Packard (HP) logo in Chicago(Reuters) - HP Inc , which houses the former Hewlett-Packard Co's legacy hardware business, reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit as aggressive cost cutting helped counter weak demand for personal computers and printers. "I believe the general sentiment from HP Inc investors is that it could have been much worse given how poorly the PC market has been expected to be and the poor PC sales numbers put forth by peers," Bill Kreher, tech analyst at Edward Jones, said. HP Inc said in February it was accelerating its restructuring program and still expects about 3,000 people to exit by the end of the financial year 2016, instead of over three years, as announced initially in September.

Bayer could get ECB financing for Monsanto bid, rules show

A Monsanto logo is pictured in the company headquarters in MorgesBy Francesco Canepa FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Bayer could receive financing from the European Central Bank that would help to fund a takeover of Monsanto , according to the terms of the ECB's bond-buying program. U.S.-based Monsanto, the world's largest seed company, turned down Bayer's $62 billion bid on Tuesday, but said it was open to further negotiations. The ECB can buy bonds issued by companies that are based in the euro area, have an investment-grade rating and are not banks, provided that they are denominated in euros and meet certain technical requirements.

Exxon shareholders pass measure that may put climate expert on board

The logo of Down Jones Industrial Average stock market index listed company Exxon Mobil is seen in Encinitas, CaliforniaBy Luc Cohen and Rory Carroll DALLAS/SAN RAMON, Calif. (Reuters) - Voters at Exxon Mobil Corp's annual meeting on Wednesday approved a measure to let minority shareholders nominate outsiders for seats on the board, meaning a climate activist could eventually become a director at the world's largest publicly traded oil company. The so-called proxy access measure was the first Exxon shareholder proposal since 2006 to be approved, and it was the only one of 11 proposals related to climate change to pass at meetings held on Wednesday by Exxon and fellow U.S. major Chevron Corp . This year's meetings were arguably the tensest ever, coming on the heels of the Paris accord to curb fossil fuel emissions and as New York's attorney general investigates allegations from environmentalists that Exxon misled the public about climate change risks.
