     ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal lawmakers are re-introducing legislation that calls for the Justice Department to review how law enforcement agencies respond to cases of missing and murdered Native Americans.

    The legislation is named Savanna's Act for 22-year-old Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, whose body was found in the Red River in Fargo, North Dakota in 2017. It was re-introduced Tuesday in the U.S. House. It also seeks to expand tribes' access to missing persons databases.

    The bill was unanimously approved in the U.S. Senate last year but died in the House. Reps. Norma Torres, of California, Deb Haaland, of New Mexico, and Dan Newhouse, of Washington state re-introduced the legislation Tuesday as lead sponsors in the House. Torres and Haaland are Democrats, and Newhouse is a Republican. U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski, a Republican from Alaska, introduced the legislation in the Senate earlier this year.

      MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Minnesota seeks to trace a direct line from clergy sex abuse victims to the Vatican. The suit pursues damages for three brothers who were abused by a Catholic priest over three years, roughly between 2009 and 2012.
 
     Previous efforts to sue the Vatican over U.S. clergy abuse have failed. Because it has the status of a foreign nation, the Vatican is generally exempt from civil lawsuits filed in the United States. The attorney for the brothers said he believes the new suit has a better chance of succeeding because he's made a more complete effort to document Vatican authority over Catholic clerics.

     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Here's another reminder of how dangerous the farming occupation is.

    A northeastern Nebraska farmer is recovering after cutting off his own leg with a pocket knife to save himself from a piece of farm equipment he had become caught in.
 
     Omaha television station KETV reports that 63-year-old Kurt Kaser, of Pender, was unloading corn last month when he got out of his truck and accidentally stepped on the grain hopper opening. An auger in the hopper caught Kaser's leg, pulling it in and mangling it. An auger is a tube that uses a rotating shaft to suck the grain and push it through the tube to deposit in a bin.
 
     Kaser said he couldn't pull his leg out and didn't have his cellphone. There was no one around to help. So, he took his pocket knife out and sawed off his leg below the knee. After he was freed, he crawled 150 feet to the nearest phone and was flown to a hospital. Kaser says he never lost consciousness.
 
     On Friday, Kaser was released from a rehabilitation center.  He will have to wait for the amputated leg to fully heal before getting a prosthetic leg.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The escalating trade war between the U.S. and China is creating anxiety among rural farmers and bankers. RSM chief economist Joseph Brusuelas says the farm sector might see its greatest downturn in three decades. President Donald Trump promises more aid. But the American Soybean Association says farmers are tired of being "collateral damage in an endless tariff war."

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Air Force is holding a training session this week in the massive Powder River Training Complex over the Northern Plains. The three-day Combat Raider exercise runs through Thursday. It involves several different types of military aircraft, including bombers, fighters and cargo planes. The 35,000-square-mile complex over the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming is the largest over the continental U.S. It's been in use for four years.
