#GoodMorningDC! Gop votes today and Elise Stefanik is going to win.

Good Morning DC! It’s Friday so I will keep it brief.

Today, GOP will cast a vote for a House Conference Chair, and Elise Stefanik is going to win. Chip Roy is running against her but it won’t make any difference. 

Yesterday, CDC confirmed that anyone who has been vaccinated can throw their mask away. 

  • CDC no longer requires masks indoors or outdoors
  • CDC no longer requires social distancing in either large or small gatherings

However if you have not been vaccinated yet,

  • CDC still advises masks while in crowded indoor settings and if you are feeling COVID symptoms. 

As the pandemic nears the end, so is the supplement for unemployment benefits. Ohio is joining Montana and South Carolina in removing a $300 enhancement to incentivize people to go back to work and prevent labor shortages. 

Spread the news: Forward Good Morning DC to your friends.

Biden said yesterday that he has no evidence that Colonial Pipeline was backed by the Russian government. The report emerged stating that the gas company paid a $5 million ransom to DarkSide

Next week, from May 16 to 20, Secretary of State Blinken will travel to Copenhagen, Reykjavik, and Kangerlussuaq and will participate in Arctic Council Ministerial

Across the pond, Britons will be able to holiday in Portugal starting Monday next week. 

Greece too ended lockdown measures today and is now open to tourists. 

Israel executed successful airstrikes last night in Gaza but a family of four was killed, according to the Palestinian authorities in Gaza.

And that’s a wrap for this Friday morning, May 14, 2021. Good Morning DC will be back on Monday to give you the latest first. Have a great weekend!
