The Federal Railroad Administration on Wednesday reminded railroads transporting crude oil that they must notify state emergency response commissions of the expected movement of trains hauling Bakken crude oil through individual states.

Following a backlash from communities, states, and some in Congress, the administration said it would leave the notification rule in place.

TRENTON - The Assembly approved a bill Thursday that would require out-of-state law enforcement agencies to notify New Jersey officials before conducting counterterrorism surveillance in the state. The measure was introduced in response to revelations of spying on Muslims in the state by the New York Police Department. Assemblyman Charles Mainor (D., Hudson), who is also a Jersey City police officer, said New York police targeted many innocent Muslims. New York police denied wrongdoing and the New Jersey attorney general found they broke no state law. Mainor's legislation would allow prosecutors to get an injunction to block an agency from conducting surveillance if it hadn't complied with the notification requirement.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan's prime minister told a Supreme Court panel Tuesday that his government would no longer stand in the way of a revival of a long-standing graft case in Switzerland against President Asif Ali Zardari, a decision that could help tamp down tensions in the bitterly contentious relationship between Zardari's government and the country's judiciary. The decision represents a significant turnaround in strategy for Zardari's ruling Pakistan People's Party, which for nearly three years has resisted the high court's demand to rescind a 2008 notification from the Pakistani government to Swiss authorities that corruption proceedings against Zardari in that country be dropped.

WOULD TEMPLE decline a chance to join the Big East? It wouldn't seem likely. But the university still has to do its due diligence. So today, as was first reported by CSNPhilly.com, Temple's Board of Trustees will hold a conference call to discuss the situation, although no Big East sources would confirm that an official invite has been extended. It's no secret that Temple finally looks like the only viable fit for the conference, which is left with just seven football members for the upcoming season after the recent loss of West Virginia to the Big 12. The Owls, who were football-only members of the Big East from 1991 until being asked to leave 13 years later, have been playing football in the MAC since 2007.
