Notable Events of the Week:

  • “The nine men — beloved sons, fathers, husbands and grandfathers — were killed Wednesday in the deadliest mass shooting in Bay Area history. Their stories vary, their ages range from 29 to 63 and their hometowns stretch from Iran and the Philippines to Santa Cruz County.” The Mercury News
  • “The bipartisan push to independently investigate the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot suffered a fatal blow Friday, after nearly all Senate Republicans banded together in opposition. The 54 to 35 outcome, which fell six votes shy of the 60 needed to circumvent a procedural filibuster, followed hours of overnight chaos as lawmakers haggled over unrelated legislation.” Washington Post
  • “President Biden traveled to Virginia on Friday to tout the state’s progress in combating the coronavirus, a visit that comes on the same day the White House will formally propose a $6 trillion budget plan for 2022 that seeks major changes to the U.S. economy and welfare system.” Washington Post
