Today begins a new effort to get more COVID boosters for millions of people. A CDC panel begins meeting to offer recommendations on another dose from Moderna and Johnson and Johnson. FDA advisors already signed off and full approval could happen at any moment.       The House will vote tomorrow on criminal charges for an aide to former President Trump. The committee investigating January's Capitol attack already recommended Steve Bannon be held in contempt for defying a subpoena. He refused to appear at a deposition last week.       The first step towards justice is happening today for victims of a Florida school shooting. Nikolas Cruz already confessed to gunning down 17 people three years ago. Now, he's ready to plead guilty. The move will avoid trial and jump to the sentencing phase set for next year.       This is the third day of jury selection in the murder trial of three men accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. He was the 25-year-old unarmed Black man shot last year while jogging through a neighborhood. Only eight jurors have qualified so far. Dozens more still need to identified before the final 12 can be seated.        The entire state of California is now under a drought emergency. Governor Gavin Newsom first made the declaration for 50 counties in July. But yesterday, he extended that to the final eight counties including Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.        The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Oklahoma over a new law that limits the teaching of critical race theory. The organization wants to stop the law from being enforced, claiming it's unconstitutional. The suit argues it censors discussions around race and gender.
