11. Pruitt acts to yield some EPA power over mining, development -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt is proposing surrendering some of his agency's veto power over waste discharges near waterways by mining and development.

He's just the only one who's sounding off in public.

19. GOP leaders plan Tuesday health vote, it's an uphill climb -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican leaders pushed toward a Senate vote next Tuesday on resurrecting their nearly flat-lined health care bill. Their uphill drive was further complicated by the ailing GOP Sen. John McCain's potential absence and a dreary report envisioning that the number of uninsured Americans would soar.

20. McConnell prods senators on health care bill, amid dim odds -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spurred Republican senators Thursday to resolve internal disputes that have pushed their marquee health care bill to the brink of oblivion.

21. Health care fight shifts to Senate, where GOP wants a reboot -

WASHINGTON (AP) — It took plenty of blood, sweat and tears for Republican leaders to finally push their health care bill through the House last week. Don't expect the process to be less complicated in the Senate, though more of the angst in that more decorous chamber will likely be behind closed doors.

22. President-elect Trump means angst for 'Obamacare' consumers -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's election ushers in a time of high anxiety for people with health insurance under President Barack Obama's law, which expanded coverage to millions but has struggled to find widespread public acceptance.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration failed to follow the president's health care law in a $5 billion dispute over compensating insurers for high costs from seriously ill patients, Congress' investigative arm said Thursday.

24. With millions covered, 'repeal and replace' gets riskier -

WASHINGTON (AP) — As Republicans gather to anoint their presidential ticket in Cleveland, uncompromising opposition to "Obamacare" is getting politically riskier.

Few people were covered under President Barack Obama's health care law when the GOP held its last convention in 2012. Now, Donald Trump's plan to replace the program would make 18 million people uninsured, according to a recent nonpartisan analysis.

25. With court defeat, GOP health law effort now aimed at '16 -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court's resounding rejection of a conservative attempt to gut President Barack Obama's health care overhaul won't stop Republicans from attacking the law they detest.

29. Even with low prices, US oil industry pushing for exports -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Never mind dropping oil prices. U.S. producers are pushing harder than ever for the right to sell U.S. crude oil overseas.

It might seem counterintuitive: Oil prices are as low as they have been at any point since 2009 and the height of the Great Recession, and some say they could drop even further. But oil producers are playing a longer game, betting that long-term demand will be strong and new markets offer lucrative rewards for U.S. producers.

30. Senate approves Obama pick for surgeon general -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Monday approved President Barack Obama's nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to serve as U.S. surgeon general, despite opposition from Republicans and some Democrats over his support for gun control and past statements that gun violence is a public health issue.

31. GOP governors don't see 'Obamacare' going away -
