Congress has approved a process that will send 8,400-year-old remains known as the Ancient One or Kennewick Man home to the Columbia Basin where area tribes and descendants will provide burial at an undisclosed location. A provision in a federal water bill, sent to President Obama for his signature, ends a 20-year fight over the remains.

Legislation that would return the 8,400-year-old bones of Kennewick Man to Columbia Basin tribes could become law in the coming weeks. The legislation proposed by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., in August 2015 made it over an important hurdle on Monday. The legislation was added to the Water Resources Development Act in April, improving its chances of passing. But the act needed to make it out of a conference committee — in which House and Senate officials reconcile differences in the House and Senate versions of the bill and agree on what would remain in the bill — by the end of the session.

As President-elect Donald Trump touts a deal to save Carrier factory work Thursday, a bill passed by the GOP-led House could undermine his campaign promise to create new American jobs. The Republican-controlled House voted 243-174 last month to effectively block the Treasury secretary from authorizing the sale of about 80 Boeing commercial jetliners to Iran Air, the state-owned airline.

Speaking with about as clear a voice as they ever do in Washington, voters last week told their congressional delegation to come up with a constitutional amendment to rein in campaign spending. Initiative 735 has statewide support from nearly 63 percent of the voters, and is passing in all 10 congressional districts with about 65,000 ballots still to count. So what kind of action can voters expect? In the short term, not much. But supporters say they’re building a movement that won’t go away.

President-elect Donald Trump can do better than Stephen Bannon as top strategist and adviser. Naming a man with ties to the “alt-right” or white-nationalist movement to a high position in the White House next year is an insult to Americans after an ugly, divisive election.The appointment doesn’t bring the nation any closer together, as Trump claims to want. In appointing Bannon, Trump has unwitting signaled those on the alternative-right fringe that their white-nationalist aspirations are in some way welcome at the highest echelons of power.

The United States House of Representatives voted in favor of tanking a Boeing contract that could have serious international consequences — violating the Iran deal. “It will hurt our economy and make us less safe,” said Congressman Denny Heck. “And I fear that this is a preview of what will come in winter and spring if this trend continues.”

Voters in three states voted to legalize the use of marijuana for recreational purposes on Tuesday, and four more states voted to allow marijuana use for medicinal purposes, the largest mass liberalization of pot laws in the nation’s history. California, Nevada and Massachusetts join four other states — Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Colorado — to legalize marijuana for recreational use. A similar ballot measure in Maine is leading by just 4,000 votes, less than 1 percent of all votes cast, with most precincts reporting, though the Associated Press has not called that contest.

Voters are poised to give a sweeping endorsement of legalizing marijuana, with ballot measures in five states on the verge of passing on Election Day, potentially setting the stage for loosening federal controls on the drug. California -- home to 40 million people and the world’s sixth-largest economy -- is likely to relax its restrictions on pot for recreational use, according to the latest polls. And similar measures in Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada also have slight leads.
