KTVT-TV
December will mark two years since 20 students and six adults were gunned down inside of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

But some school districts in Texas do not believe that those steps are enough to ensure the safety of students.

Why Uber and Lyft are not interchangeable services in New York
Slate
Lyft, the purveyor of pink-mustachioed cars, markets itself as a "friendly, affordable ride" for city-dwellers everywhere. But New York officials aren't buying it. The New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan forced Lyft to delay its planned launch in Brooklyn and Queens in response to complaints filed by the attorney general's office. New York is also seeking to halt the company's operations in Buffalo and Rochester and has accused Lyft of heedlessly disregarding the law.

Will businesses lose terrorism coverage?
Governing
When a large hotel near the World Trade Center was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks and a second one severely damaged, the company that owned them — like many other businesses — was relieved they were covered by insurance. But after 9/11, the insurance industry, which ended up sustaining an estimated $32.5 billion in total losses, grew skittish and began excluding terrorism from commercial policies nationwide.

Car crashes No. 1 cause of teen deaths in New York
Claims Journal
The facts couldn’t be clearer: Car accidents are the number-one cause of accidental deaths in children ages 0-19 nationally. The AAA auto club says the 100 days of summer (from Memorial Day to Labor Day) are the deadliest for teenage drivers and their teen passengers. It’s a time when schedules are looser; trips involve friends and fun rather than school and structured activities; and curfews may be less strict.

Mississippi reminds drivers inspections stickers still required
Insurance Journal
Annual vehicle safety inspections continue to be required in Mississippi, but there has been confusion among drivers who may have read the headlines about the law’s demise in the Legislature. It is likely that some of the 39,333 drivers ticketed for not having a current state inspection sticker in 2013 may not have followed the legislation designed to end the program to its end.

Houston passes what may be the nation's first anti-hoarding law
Governing
Thanks in part to reality TV shows like “Hoarders” and “Hoarding: Buried Alive,” the issue of hoarding — and attendant concerns about anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) — has gained national prominence. For cities, it can be an extremely complicated problem. When clutter consumes a living space, it can create health and safety hazards not only for an individual, but for neighbors as well.
