1. The Senate Surprised Itself By Passing A Bill To Make Daylight Saving Time Permanent NPR 28:12

On top of aid to Ukraine and a trillion-dollar budget, Congress reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act and passed legislation which makes lynching a federal hate crime.

They also voted to make Daylight Saving Time permanent, but only because some senators who were opposed reportedly didn’t know the vote was happening.

And Black Americans are mobilizing in support of Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination. If confirmed, she would be the first Black woman on the high court. Hearings begin next week.

This episode: White House correspondent Asma Khalid, congressional correspondent Susan Davis, acting congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, politics and racial justice correspondent Juana Summers.
