Scrutiny intensified today of the Manhattan jail where accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found dead on Saturday.

The jail's warden was also temporarily reassigned, pending the outcome of both the FBI and Justice Department investigations into Epstein's death.
A coalition of 29 states and cities filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration today to stop a rule easing restrictions on coal-burning power plants.

Most of the southern U.S. and parts of the Midwest were under heat advisories and warnings today, from Texas to South Carolina.

And, a new report out today finds that child care costs in most states exceed federal subsidies for low-income parents.
That's according to the inspector general for the Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS.

But many states set their payment rates much lower than recommended.
HHS has now put 33 states on watch to ensure they comply with equal access requirements.
