News Roundup: House passes key Democratic bill; Afghan evacuations continue; the never-ending audit

In the news today: The House advanced an ambitious Democratic infrastructure bill today after negotiations with holdout Democrats, but the path ahead won’t be an easy one. U.S. forces have now evacuated nearly 71,000 people from the Kabul airport; whether the August 31st target for full military withdrawal is kept or extended remains dependent on the pace of progress. The Republican-backed, bamboo-seeking Arizona election “audit” still hasn’t produced an actual report, but there’s a new excuse this time around: The core audit team now has COVID-19. Probably from inhaling too many bamboo fibers.
