UK lawmakers to vote on two proposed changes to government's 'no deal' Brexit motionBritish lawmakers will have the opportunity to vote on two proposed changes to Prime Minister Theresa May’s next steps on Brexit on Wednesday, Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow said. Lawmakers will vote on a government motion later which states that parliament rejects leaving the European Union without a deal on March 29, but notes that leaving without a deal remains the legal default unless a deal is agreed. Bercow said he had selected an amendment put forward by Conservative lawmaker Caroline Spelman, and supported by lawmakers from several parties, which seeks to rule out a no-deal exit under any scenario.

The expected closure of the L train tunnel under the East River for at least 15 months had dismayed residents of the Brooklyn communities of Williamsburg, Bushwick and beyond. Cuomo told a news conference that engineering experts from Cornell and Columbia universities had looked at the plans over the last few weeks drawn up by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the state agency that runs the subway, and found them needlessly disruptive.
