Obama health care law

Editor's note: After nearly 90 minutes of debate, readouts indicate the U.S. Supreme Court appears divided on ideological lines in the subsidies challenge to President Obama's health care law. Justice Anthony Kennedy focused on the potential negative consequences for states that choose not to create their own exchanges. The decision, expected in June, will affect roughly 7 million Americans who receive federal subsidies for their health care. - Rebecca

US immigration reform debate

Editor's note: The U.S. House has approved a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security through the rest of the fiscal year, and it does not include immigration conditions. President Obama is expected to sign the Senate-passed legislation. This ends a months-long stalemate and shutdown threat to the DHS. Congressional conservatives wanted a bill funding of the agency to include provisions blocking President Obama's immigration actions, but those efforts were blocked by Democrats in the Senate last week. - Stephanie
