u. s. politicians have agreed to keep government operation was wanting through to december, avoiding a shutdown, bought that are still battles of a president bivens economic agenda, and increasing b u. s. or a week when it went on that from alan fisher at the white house, essentially the us spends a lot more than it brings in and it has a date limit, but it gets to set its own date limit. it's like you are, i being able to set the limit on the credit card. and so congress has got to go and decide what limit it wants or whether it wants to remove this debt limit entirely so that it doesn't keep running into this problem. now the republicans don't want to help the democrats, the see, it's because the democrats can do this on their own, the control, the house, the senate, and the white house. but there's also a political aspect to this. there's a surprise. they want to be able to go in to the 2020 to mid term elections and say, look, the democrats just increased the country's debt limit again to pay for their radical leftist policies. that is what they will see to people to try and win back the
6:34 pm
house, possibly increase their majority in the senate as well. so there's a political aspect to this, but there's a real economic aspect. as janet yell and his already explained, if the u. s. were to default for the 1st time in modern history, it could through the economy, into recession, economy the just crawling out of the problems of coven, 19 a federal judge will consider where the taxes can keep the nation's most restrictive abortion law. the u. s. government is suing the state of texas for an acting. the legislation which contradicts decades of legal precedent law was signed by the governor greg albert in may and went into effect in september or on capital hill. on thursday, members of congress shed their experiences with abortion to highlight the importance of safe access representatives. corey bush, barb relief and priscilla gyre pal gave emotional testimonies to a congressional committee at spring and fatima goss graves in washington. she's the
6:35 pm
president and c o, the national women's law center, and recently testified before the senate committee on the traditionally good savvy with a. so just remind us what's at stake here as this federal judge considers the texas abortion law stay has the ability to act as critical abortion care in the state of texas. but really in other states too, because we've already seen comcast laws filed in many other states including florida. but also at stake is a bigger legal question about whether or not they can just under mine constitutional protection. simply by coming up with a clever track. and that's what happened here, that's why the united states filed the suit and i'm hoping we will see an injunction. as we said, you recently testified before the senate committee on the judiciary. do you think
6:36 pm
your message was heard concerning women's rights? one of the things that i wanted to make clear in that testimony is how much was at stake. we're now and day 31 where abortion has effectively been banned. busy in the state of texas, it's a matter of our health care access, but it is also a matter of personal liberty and dignity, and actually what it means to be equal in this country. there is so much at stake in kansas in this country and why people are mobilizing is why you saw congress, women actually take the radical step of telling their abortion stories. this is a crisis. but if texas is allowed to keep this law does not open the door of a conservative stage to introduce similar legislation. well, it says that it is also that the supreme court is hearing argument on december.
6:37 pm
first. in mississippi abortion band case, we are at a crossroads where abortion access and our right to abortion. here is that state. and i want to know that that right to abortion is totally tied up with other personal liberty lights the right to contraception, the right to marry, we want to marry and be in relationship who with who you want to be in a relationship with the right to parent your children as your, as you choose these for many, many decades have been found ational, liberty. busy and core to but it means to be an eagle citizen in this country, all of that is on the line this year. and how does the, the, the, by the administration's lawsuit against texas showcase the division between federal and state legislation on such such key issues?
6:38 pm
well, for over 5 decades we have had real clarity on this issue. if you're like me, you grew up thinking and believing that you have the foundational read no matter where you live. our constitution doesn't work so that in the state of texas, you only get part of the constitution and in colorado, maybe you get more of that. that's not how constitutional democracy works. and so it is critical that there are not be ambiguity. here. taxes flouted the constitution and do a clever track. it's so important that the court get this right. really good talk to you, but he thinks that it being with us sort of a ghost graves that in washington, venezuela is launching its 2nd currency overhaul in 3 years. 6 zeros will be cut from the bolivar in response to hyper inflation,

6:50 pm
delta al jazeera manuel it up. hello reports the colorado river delta in the baja, california desert. for decades waterless has been its defining characteristic until a groundbreaking agreement between the us and mexico was signed in 2012, allowing water to flow in parts back into the delta seats is important. them is not a lot as well. not only got, it's important to mention that this acord is unique in the world in which 2 countries the united states and mexico decide to trans for volumes of water from one country to the other, exclusively for the benefit of the environment. i'm in the buyer in the results of what happened when water was returned to the region. speak for themselves. it when gabriella gonzales, a scientists with the sonata institute says, since conservation efforts began, hundreds of acres of forest and wetlands have been restored. it's a long. 1 process, and that for the last 10 years we have am registered at change from 50 brad species
6:51 pm
and the belt that in 10 years after we have more than 360 berth species along the river from the river, all the way to the estuary where the river meet the sea, and here specifically like when i get on that we have registered more than a 162 bird species. there is also footage now suggesting wild cats including links is or thriving along with other endangered species like beavers, which had all but disappeared when water levels were critical. the viability of this renewed habitat, however, ultimately depends on a commitment from us and mexican partners to meet the demand for water. environmentalists admit that they're simply not enough water for the colorado river to flow freely all the way to the sea. but restoration projects like planting trees and maintaining wetlands like this one are delivering positive results for the regions ecosystems. the reason why the delta dried up dates back to another
6:52 pm
agreement, signed in 1944 back then the u. s. in mexico established exactly how much water each country would receive from the river and for what purpose? not leaving a drop for the environment. men can say, gabriella says that while it was public policy that led to the loss of a flowing river, it can also be public policy that brings it back to life in this place, like when i could. and there were this project started as his dream and 20 years later it's happening. so i can imagine a flowing river, i can imagine healthier ecosystems. and i can imagine the river meeting with the ocean once again from may to october of this year. more than 43000000000 cubic meters of water will flow into the colorado delta, ensuring at least for now, the continued health of this natural environment. manuel did up a low al jazeera, the colorado river delta time for sport than his hello. thank you very much,

6:55 pm
sporting side to the calendar, to the cultural impact of the game. and we always, you will need to consult with the players about this. because ultimately, the current players are the ones will who will play it and we need to get their views on the way the process started, i think was quite unfortunate in the sense of it going to the media 1st. it going through individual conversations with certain people 1st before the the stakeholders were properly introduced to the process. we had one meeting in which people presented to us and they're thinking that the meeting was, was constructive in the sense that we objectively could, could see what fever was actually presenting. and there are some ideas on the table which are more on the calendar front. i think than the competition design from which we obviously welcome. there is a proposal to institute essentially a month guarantee break in the summer for the players in the off season, which is something we've been pushing for for a long time. there is a conversation about reducing windows, which is i think something you at least need to very seriously consider based on
