Biden Issues First Veto to Protect Socially Conscious Investing

The president defended his decision to veto the effort to overturn the E.S.G. rule by accusing far-right Republicans of doing the same thing they were accusing Democrats of doing: imposing their views on the rest of the country.

Last week, the College Board purged its Advanced Placement course on African American Studies after the DeSantis administration banned a pilot version, citing readings on queer theory and reparations for slavery.
