$15 Wage Deal Could Fall Apart: Mayor Ed Murray’s $15 minimum wage plan is falling apart, as businesses propose new amendments that are dividing the Seattle City Council.

Tennessee Brings Back Electric Chair: Tennessee has become the first state to create a law requiring death row inmates must die by electric chair. Republican Gov. Bill Haslam signed the law Thursday.
