Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday said it was still not safe to allow residents fully-vaccinated for COVID-19 to travel overseas, as industries hit hard by the pandemic press for a faster reopening of international borders. Morrison said any plans to relax border rules for vaccinated travellers could be implemented "only when it is safe to do so". Australia plans to reopen borders to the rest of the world from the middle of 2022 even as the federal budget unveiled last week hopes to fully vaccinate its near 26 million population by the end of this year.

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia's lieutenant governor, one of the most prominent Republicans to openly contradict false claims about fraud in the November presidential election, confirmed Monday as expected that he won't seek reelection in 2022. Republican Geoff Duncan was among the most high-profile Republicans to openly oppose Trump’s claims, angering many in his own party. In Georgia, many other Republican officials have doubled down on unproven claims that Trump was cheated out of Georgia's 16 electoral votes in November. Duncan said Monday that he will focus on building an advocacy organization called GOP 2.0 that “will focus on healing and rebuilding a Republican Party that is damaged but not destroyed.” “GOP 2.0 will work hard every day reminding Americans the value of conservative policies through genuine empathy and a respectful tone,” Duncan said. Duncan is also writing a book called “GOP 2.0: How the 2020 Election Can Lead to a Better Way Forward for America’s Conservative Party,” set for publication in September by Simon & Schuster. “It always feels coldest right before the sun rises," Duncan said in a statement released Monday. “I believe that is the exact moment in time the Republican Party is caught in right now, and I am committed to being a part of creating those better days ahead for our conservative party all across this country.” Among Republicans considering a run in 2022 for lieutenant governor are state Sen. Burt Jones of Jackson and state Senate President Pro Tem Butch Miller of Gainesville. Jones was among a group of Republican senators who sought legislative action to probe Trump's claims and possibly overturn Georgia's election results. State Senate Majority Whip Steve Gooch, a Dahlonega Republican, released a statement Monday saying he might run. Speaking out against Trump has given Duncan a national platform and won him plaudits from moderates and even some Democrats. But it also has made him a target among the conservative base of the Republican Party, with Duncan censured multiple times Saturday by Republicans holding conventions in Georgia's 14 congressional districts. For instance, at the 11th Congressional District Republican convention in Cartersville, delegates passed a resolution rebuking Duncan for “conduct detrimental to the party” and calling for him to apologize. They said he “repeatedly denied the existence of election fraud and voting irregularities in the 2020 elections, and in doing so denigrated President Trump and countless Republican voters in Georgia for their beliefs." Duncan had said misinformation spread by Trump would hurt Republicans' chances in two U.S. Senate runoffs held in January, which Democrats went on to sweep, giving them control of the chamber. He has also criticized as “punitive” parts of Georgia's new election law, which sprang from Trump’s false claims. The new law requires voters to present identification to request an absentee ballot, cuts days for requesting an absentee ballot, shortens early voting before runoff elections, provides fewer drop boxes than allowed during the pandemic, allows the state to take over county election offices and bars people from giving food and water to voters within 150 feet (45 meters) of a polling place. In early March, Duncan refused to preside over a state Senate debate on a GOP-backed proposal that would have severely limited who could vote absentee by mail. The provision was not included in the final version of the bill that became law. Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger also has been a critic of Trump’s efforts to subvert the election results and has said repeatedly that the election was free and fair. Raffensperger, who is running for reelection, is already being challenged by Republican U.S. Rep Jody Hice, who has been endorsed by Trump. ___ Follow Jeff Amy on Twitter at http://twitter.com/jeffamy.

Two Maryland sheriff’s deputies were shot and wounded Monday while trying to serve a warrant for a probation violation on an assault charge, a spokeswoman said.

Additional deputies were dispatched to the home, Richardson said, because there were concerns about the man's mental condition and the danger he might pose.

The exit would comprise the sale or wind-up of agreements and assets on the Pacific Trail Pipeline route and at the site for the proposed facility, Woodside Petroleum said. The proposed project's operator Chevron Canada, a unit of U.S. oil and gas major Chevron, had already decided to divest its 50% interest in December 2019, and stopped feasibility work at the site in March this year. "The Kitimat LNG proposal was designed to develop a new source of LNG to supply Asian markets in the latter part of this decade," Woodside acting Chief Executive Officer Meg O'Neill said in a statement.
