Atlanta voters are deciding Tuesday's mayoral runoff between City Council President Felicia Moore and fellow council member Andre Dickens. The race has been largely focused on fears of crime. The two remaining candidates have also addressed concerns about affordable housing, struggling city services and an effort by the wealthy Buckhead neighborhood to split from the city. Current Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms isn’t seeking a second term. Moore was the top vote-getter among 14 candidates in the first round of the nonpartisan race. Dickens narrowly made the runoff by beating former Mayor Kasim Reed for second place and has since benefitted from a surge in endorsements.

She resigned last week after seven hours as prime minister because a budget defeat prompted then-coalition partner the Greens to quit her two-party coalition.

California corrections officials have begun limiting medical parole only to inmates so ill they are on ventilators. They are citing a federal rule change as the reason inmates who are quadriplegic or have other severe permanent disabilities no longer can be placed in nursing homes. An attorney representing inmates says it could lead to a third of the 210 permanently incapacitated inmates on medical parole being sent back to prison. The federal agency says California could switch to other care facilities that don’t fall under the same guidelines as nursing homes. A state corrections spokesperson said that would require establishing a new monitoring program for those facilities.
