SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – California Senator and Democratic presidential nominee hopeful Kamala Harris has introduced a bill that aims to help working parents by aligning school hours with the normal workday. Right now, most schools dismiss around 3 p.m., two hours short of the usual standard full-time workday, leaving many parents in a bind. The legislation, called the “Family Friendly Schools Act,” would create school activities from at least 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sen. Harris introduced the bill on Wednesday.

BOSTON (CBS) – The wait appears to be over for Patriots first round draft pick N’Keal Harry. The wide receiver was placed on injured reserve after suffering an injury in the preseason. Harry was added to the roster before New England’s game against Baltimore, but was inactive for the game. During pregame coverage on Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Harry will play on Sunday in Philadelphia. “We’ll activate the players we feel give us the best chance to compete against the Eagles,” head coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday.

Kamala Harris added some major star power to her campaign on Saturday night at a fundraising event in Los Angeles. Katy Perry, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato were among the Hollywood heavyweights who turned up for a fireside chat with the Democratic hopeful in Brentwood.

He is also an 'incessant, manipulative' bully according to Taylor Swift, whose fans are now using this event to denounce a candidate that the singer herself has shown support for on social media. 'I was SO excited for you as a democratic candidate, but if you so choose to go to an event held by @scooterbraun, a man whose arrogance mirrors our president’s, I can no long hold onto my excitement and faith for you as a presidential candidate,' wrote one fan on Saturday.
