WASHINGTON - Rep. Jim Matheson has won a seventh term in Congress, defeating Republican challenger Mia Love. Love, a small-town conservative Utah mayor and a Mormom, was one of the GOP's top priorities in the run up to Nov. 6. Matheson, the son of the late Scott M. Matheson - one of Utah's most popular Governors - remains the only Democrat representing Utah in Washington. Matheson and Love ran in a newly drawn district, which is thought to be conservative, but perhaps not as conservative as Matheson's old district.

The House agreed to a $3,100 pay raise for Congress next year -- to $165,200 -- after defeating an effort to roll it back. In a 263-152 vote, the House blocked a bid by Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) to force an up-or-down vote on the raise. Instead, lawmakers will automatically receive the raise -- officially a cost-of-living adjustment. "Now is not the time for members of Congress to be voting themselves a pay raise. We need to be willing to make sacrifices," Matheson said.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it doesn't have the authority to prevent foreign radioactive waste from being imported into the United States. The NRC wrote in an April 9 letter to Reps. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) and Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) that the Atomic Energy Act doesn't distinguish between domestic and foreign waste. The NRC says that as long as the material can be imported safely and someone is willing to accept it, the commission can't keep it waste out.

WASHINGTON -- New Hampshire voters will send an all-woman delegation to the next Congress. That was among the changes coming to the U.S. House of Representatives after an election on Tuesday that kept Republicans in the majority. Although a number of races were still undecided, Republican strategists were predicting a net loss of five to seven seats. Heading into the election, Republicans held a 240-190 majority with five vacancies, three previously held by Democrats and two by Republicans.

By scoring two goals in eight seconds against the New York Islanders on Thursday, the Oilers' Taylor Hall did several things: 1. Put himself in position to become a future "Jeopardy!" answer. 2. Forced a rewrite job -- OK, a slight modification -- to Edmonton's record book by eclipsing one of Wayne Gretzky's records. Gretzky scored twice in nine seconds 32 years ago in what ended up a 9-2 rout of the St. Louis Blues. He went on to score five goals in that one. 3. At 21, became the youngest player in the NHL to score two goals in eight seconds or less since Deron Quint scored twice in four seconds in 1995.

An Energy Department official had no immediate answers Friday for a congressional panel seeking details of federal plans for shipping spent nuclear reactor fuel to a national radioactive waste dump in Nevada. Gary Lanthrum, director of the department's Office of National Transportation, said the Energy Department would make public in about six weeks whether it will use trains, trucks or a combination of both to get the nation's most radioactive waste to Yucca Mountain.

WASHINGTON - Three senior House members announced Tuesday that they would not seek reelection in 2014, offering both parties prime pickup opportunities in the midterm election. The clearest opportunity for a party switch comes in Utah, where Democrat Jim Matheson said he would step down rather than make what would probably be another bruising run in the ruby-red state. Matheson won a seventh term in 2012 by just 768 votes against Mia Love, mayor of Saratoga Springs and a rising Republican star who plans to run again in 2014.

They helped propel the Democrats to victory in last week's election, and now the "Blue Dogs" want their reward: a decidedly conservative fiscal policy that begins with a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget. The coalition of moderate and conservative House Democrats on Wednesday introduced nine members who were newly elected to Congress, bringing its numerical strength to 44.
