Tennessee: Corker calls for closer US ties to Ukraine, Moldava. US Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called on the US to strengthen its ties with Ukraine and Moldava. On a four-day trip to the two countries, Corker said Russia’s interference in the two countries “is a wake-up call… We are paying the price for our disengagement from the region following the collapse of the Soviet Union.”


Mississippi: Bryant signs anti-crime bills. Gov. Phil Bryant (R-MS) signed bills into law on Monday that will help reduce crime in the Magnolia State, reports The Commercial Appeal. One would add 14 new assistant district attorneys this year and two more next year, which would reduce prosecutors’ caseloads and reduce plea-bargaining. Another would add 60 more state troopers to improve highway safety.


South Carolina: Scott, Booker form friendship. Although they are the only two African-Americans in the Senate, US Sens. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) are separated by both party and ideology, yet they have become good friends, reports the Black Entertainment Network. Booker says Scott, whom he calls “the old man” because he got to the Senate first, helped orient him when Booker first arrived in Washington. Last week the two lawmakers introduced their first joint bill, which would offer tax credits for employers who increase the number of apprenticeships they offer.
