House panel postpones Kellyanne Conway contempt vote amid talks with White House

House panel postpones Kellyanne Conway contempt vote amid talks with White House House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah E. Cummings said he was postponing the vote “as I work with the White House to try to reach an accommodation” on Conway’s testimony.

Lynyrd Skynyrd has postponed two upcoming shows on the band’s Last of the Street Survivors tour to allow guitarist and original member Gary Rossington to recover from health issues. The group has pushed back its Aug. 16 performance at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and Aug. 17 show at Toyota Amphitheatre in Wheatland, California.

According to a release, Rossington had been experiencing fatigue and other symptoms related to a leaky heart valve and underwent a procedure on July 31 to repair the valve. He is expected to make a full recovery and the band has rescheduled the Nevada and California events for Oct. 18 and 19, respectively.
