NAACP seeks to extend deadline for eugenics claims

Monday, June 30th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s NAACP is sending an open letter to the governor, speaker of the House and state Senate leaders seeking a yearlong deadline extension for victims of the state’s eugenics program.

The state’s deadline for victims to file a claim is Monday at 5 p.m.

State’s NAACP President the Rev. William Barber said North Carolina has not done a good enough job reaching out to victims.

The proposed new deadline is also the day that victims whose claims are approved by the state are scheduled to receive compensation.

A bill to extend the period to file claims for victims of the decades-long sterilization program was submitted to the General Assembly last month. As of last week, about a third of the estimated living victims had submitted claims.

GM recalls 7.6 million cars for ignition switches

Monday, June 30th, 2014

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is recalling at least 7.6 million more vehicles dating back to 1997 to fix faulty ignition switches as the company’s safety crisis continues to grow.

The latest recalls involve mainly older midsize cars and bring GM’s total number of recalls this year to over 28 million.

The company says it is aware of three deaths, eight injuries and seven crashes involving the vehicles recalled on Monday. GM says it has no conclusive evidence that faulty switches caused the crashes.

The company says it expects to take a $1.2 billion charge in the second quarter for recall-related expenses.

It is urging people to remove everything from their key rings until their cars can be repaired.
