North American Morning Briefing: Stock Futures -3-

Democrats currently hold 220 seats and Republicans have 212, with three vacancies, meaning Republicans need a net gain of a handful of seats to flip the House in their favor. Nonpartisan election analysts see Republicans likely to win the majority, even as Democrats' poll numbers have improved and some candidates have posted stronger-than-expected results in a handful of special elections.

   
 
 

Supreme Court Term Opens With New Justice and Weighty Cases

WASHINGTON-The Supreme Court opens its new term Monday with a new member, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, and a docket that could reshape features of American society ranging from college admissions to political redistricting.

Monday's first case, Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, could offer an early sign of whether the court's 6-3 conservative majority will continue the refashioning of federal law they pursued last term, with opinions that eliminated the constitutional right to an abortion and expanded religion's place in public education. The justices will be hearing arguments on whether to curb the federal government's power to fight water pollution, following last term's decision limiting the agency's authority to combat greenhouse-gas emissions.
