CIA Deputy Director Gina Haspel will testify before senators this morning on Capitol Hill ahead of a possible vote of confidence to lead the intelligence agency. Haspel, who spent 32 years undercover for the agency, would be the first woman to lead the CIA, as well as the first career-agent to hold the post. 

However, she's faced bipartisan criticism for overseeing the use of waterboarding in interrogations during her posting at an agency site in Thailand. Watch a livestream of the U.S. Senate intelligence committee hearing below courtesy of PBS NewsHour.

Dockless vehicle providers now have rules for operating in Austin after a City Council vote early this morning, giving providers a framework to deploy dockless bikes and scooters legally by as soon as next week.

The unanimous vote rolls dockless vehicles into a city ordinance banning abandoned vehicles from blocking rights-of-way like sidewalks and sets up a framework to penalize dockless vehicles operating illegally in Austin.
