Plus, Charlie Stenholm, of Texas has died. He served 25 years as a representative in Congress. Redistricting did away with his seat. However, he went on to say that redistricting should be done ever 10 years to ensure a more responsible government.

And a total of eight automobile manufacturers have stopped producing AM radios in their vehicles. Opponents say AM radio is critical to safety in the case of severe weather. A congressional bill sponsored by J.D. Vance in congress could make it a law to include AM radio.

Plus, warmer temperatures have hit Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Temperatures reached in the 80's this week, however, there is still snow on the ground.
