ATLANTA (AP) - President Donald Trump's efforts to show that voter fraud cost him the popular vote in 2016 appear to have stalled. A White House official says the commission produced no preliminary findings to be forwarded, and the voter data it collected from some states will be destroyed. He had tasked the Department of Homeland Security with reviewing the work of his disbanded election integrity commission, but the department says its focus is on the security of election systems.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A jail in northeastern Kansas is seeing a rising inmate population after a 2014 law that redefined a defendant's right to a speedy trial from 90 days to 150 days. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the Douglas County sheriff's office is some of the loudest voices calling for a $44 million jail expansion to combat the rising the population. The sheriff says the speedy-trial redefinition is one of multiple factors why the population has exceeded its 186 beds.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Forecasters expect a major winter storm to dump snow on most of Nebraska and parts of Iowa and Kansas, and the storm could make travel difficult. The National Weather Service says the storm is already moving across Nebraska, and blizzard conditions are expected at times.
