Future Majority's strategy center is constantly monitoring what's happening on the ground in key states. Here are three things to know that happened this week outside the beltway:
- A federal district judge blocks Trump Administration Medicaid work requirement in Arkansas and Kentucky, a major setback to one of their signature health policies.

New Mexico joins 17 other states and the District of Columbia in allowing same-day voter registration.
