first_img Legislation by state Rep. Klint Kesto, which permanently revokes a medical professional’s state license if convicted of performing a female genital mutilation procedure, was signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder today.The bill is part of a bipartisan eight-bill package that also prohibits the procedure, sets sentencing guidelines, improves educational programs for health and law enforcement officials, and extends the civil and criminal statute of limitations for victims.As chair of the House Law and Justice Committee, Kesto led the charge to advance the comprehensive legislation through the state Legislature. He pointed to the brutal and unnecessary nature of female genital mutilations, which is any procedure performed on girls to remove or damage the external genitalia.“Laws are in place to protect our citizens, especially our youngest ones,” said Kesto, of Commerce Township. “All I needed to know was that this is most frequently being done on girls that are 4- to 14 years old and clearly done without their specific consent, with the likelihood of  lifelong physical and mental damage. There’s no place for this in our society.”The bill package follows a February incident where two young girls from Minnesota were subjected to the procedure at a southeast Michigan clinic. A Livonia couple was arrested on federal charges in April after allowing and performing the procedure after hours at their medical clinic, while a third individual has been fired from their emergency room doctor position for performing the procedure at the same Livonia clinic.Kesto’s bill, now Public Act 75 of 2017, will be in effect in 90 days.“One more mutilation is one too many, so I hope these new laws send the message that this will no longer take place without significant repercussions in the state of Michigan,” Kesto said. “That mission made it easy for us all – Republican and Democrat, Senator and Representative – to work together in Lansing for the sake of protecting children.”##### Categories: Kesto News,News 11Jul Rep.

first_imgSavings for taxpayers. A prison would be closed, reflecting successful efforts to reduce Michigan’s inmate population. Budgets for several state departments decline as state government becomes more efficient and eliminates waste. Overall, the House plan spends less money next budget year – continuing a trend of spending less annually while prioritizing what’s most important. Campus safety. Provisions to raise standards for handling sexual assault complaints at universities are included. Road repairs. Funding will rise to the highest levels in Michigan history as the state addresses one of its most urgent needs. Overall, the state will have pumped more than $2 billion in additional funds into roads and bridges over a three-year period by the upcoming budget year – with more money coming in the future. The Michigan House today approved a state budget plan that reduces overall spending while still making record-high investments in schools and roads, state Rep. Laura Cox announced.“We are focused on what matters most to Michigan families,” said Cox, chair of the House Appropriations Committee. “This budget invests in our future by providing schools and workforce preparation programs more resources than ever before. Safer schools and neighborhoods and smoother roads will improve the lives of residents across the state. And it’s accomplished without growing government.”The House plan for the budget year beginning Oct. 1 focuses on:More than a quarter of the House’s overall budget proposal goes to K-12 schools, with $14.8 billion establishing a new record for K-12 investment – including the largest annual per-student increase in 15 years. Early literacy and support for academically at-risk students are priorities. Universities and community colleges also receive more money to prepare students for the future. Health care. Access to mental health services will be improved so Michigan residents can live healthier, happier and more independent lives. Services to military veterans, problem-solving courts and other efforts reflecting the House CARES initiative would be enhanced. Incentives would be added to provide more doctors in underserved rural and urban areas. School safety. More than $25 million would be added to improve school security. The OK2SAY program would be expanded. Categories: Cox News,News Workforce development. More than $100 million is added to talent development and workforce preparation programs at the K-12 level, plus significant investments in other programs such as Going PRO.

House Bills 5578-9 advance to the Senate as work to finalize the next state budget continues. Community safety. The plan funds training of 130 new Michigan State Police troopers – putting our trooper strength at its highest level in 18 years.

first_img13Jun Rep. Alexander casts vote for fiscally responsible state budget State Rep. Julie Alexander on Tuesday voted to approve the budget for the coming fiscal year, moving a fiscally conservative budget that addresses key issues that are important to hard-working taxpayers.Alexander, of Hanover, said the new spending blueprint improves Michigan’s economic outlook and gives students more avenues to jobs after they graduate.“We are funding our K-12 schools at the highest level in the state’s history, and the increase in per-student funding is the greatest in 15 years,” said Alexander, a former teacher. “Every school district in Jackson County will see the maximum $240 increase for each student, helping to eliminate the funding gap that still exists between smaller school districts and larger, more urban districts. This is a continuation of our commitment to education and investment in the future of our children.”The budget also increases funding for skilled trades instruction, so students who do not plan to go to college can obtain the tools they need to succeed in the workforce.“We are adding $100 million for more young people to learn the skills necessary to fill one of the high-paying skilled trades jobs available throughout Michigan,” Alexander said.More money is being invested in roads in a continued investment in fixing the transportation system.“I drive the same potholed and crumbling roads that everyone does, and I get it. I share your frustration, but this problem was not created overnight and it cannot be fixed overnight,” Alexander said. “More help is on the way in this budget and we are on the right path moving forward.”The House plan for the budget year beginning Oct. 1 focuses on:Savings for taxpayers. While investing more in top priorities, overall the state is spending less in the next budget year than during the current year. Smart financial planning. The new budget pays down debt and puts more money into the state’s main savings account, key steps that will continue to reduce the burden on Michigan’s hard-working taxpayers in the future. House Bill 5579 and Senate Bill 848 advance to the governor for his consideration.##### School safety.

first_img Categories: Diana Farrington News,News 19Mar Rep. Farrington: Time to make state government completely transparent Plan extends open record requirements to governor, LegislatureState Rep. Diana Farrington today voted to approve a bipartisan plan to make state government more accountable to the people of Michigan.Farrington, of Utica, said the House unanimously approved the multi-bill proposal.“I respect the people I serve and I remain committed to being accountable to them,” Farrington said. “By expanding open records laws to the legislative and executive branches, we are giving residents access to important information about the decisions made inside the walls of our state Capitol.”Michigan is one of just two states that still exempts its governor and the Legislature from open records laws. The bipartisan solution approved today would end these exemptions and increase transparency in state government.The proposal will subject the governor and lieutenant governor to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and hold state representatives and senators to the same high standard by creating the Legislative Open Records Act (LORA).While LORA mirrors FOIA in many ways, there are exemptions for constituent inquiries to ensure that personal information is protected and kept private. Other types of communications – including those lawmakers have with state departments and lobbyists – would not be exempt.House Bills 4007-13 and 4015-16 now advance to the Senate for consideration.###last_img read more

first_imgShare6Tweet5ShareEmail11 SharesBy Firdaus Latif (ROHINGYA) [CC BY-SA 2.0], via Wikimedia CommonsAugust 14, 2017; Al JazeeraThe Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar (formerly Burma) face rejection again this week as India threatens to expel them. After rejection by numerous nations, including their native one, this small ethnic group has no place to call home.There are an estimated one million Rohingya people living scattered over southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent, and another 1.3 million in Myanmar. An estimated 40,000 Rohingya live in India, with the greatest concentration of 7,000–8,000 in Jammu Kashmir, or J&K. Many say they wish to return home, but they cannot.The conditions in which the Rohingya are forced to live in Myanmar have been described by the New York Times’ Nick Kristof as “modern-day concentration camps…They live behind fences and police checkpoints. They can’t leave, and doctors aren’t allowed in, even to save their lives.” As described by Human Rights Watch, Rohingya are not permitted citizenship, they are not permitted education beyond primary school, they are required to obtain travel permits to visit the next town over or to stay overnight somewhere, and they are required to perform forced labor for state-owned companies benefiting other communities.The basis on which Myanmar denies citizenship to the Rohingya is that they are Bangladeshi refugees. While this isn’t justification for inhumane treatment or denial of citizenship, it’s also untrue. Muslims arrived in the independent kingdom of Arakan, now called Rakhine state, in the eighth century. The Middle East Institute explains that Myanmar’s political climate is heavily informed by “anti-Muslim racisms, which emerged out of the colonial-era political economy in which locals were subordinated to Indians.” The British encouraged Bengali immigration to Burma and relied on Bengali-Rohingya forces to push out Japanese invaders in 1948, while displacing Hindu Burmese villagers and barring them from military service, creating lasting resentment. Three waves of state-sanctioned violence have compelled hundreds of thousands of Rohingya to flee Myanmar: one in 1978, one in 1992, and most recently in 2012.Rohingya in Myanmar today are forced to identify as Bangladeshi, an ethnic label they firmly reject. Bangladesh rejects them, too, and refuses to admit them as refugees. Myanmar even rejects the name Rohingya, because “it means a person of Rohang, the old Muslim term for what is now Arakan state in western Burma—as conferring historical legitimacy on the Muslim presence.”India, too, rejects the presence of Rohingya in the politically volatile region of Kashmir. Deputy Interior Minister Kiren Rijiju told Reuters, “As far as we are concerned they are all illegal immigrants. They have no basis to live here. Anybody who is [an] illegal migrant will be deported.”The Middle East Institute translated a Facebook post recounting a phone message that a Rohingya woman left for her brother, saying, “Send us as many birth control pills as you can. They (Myanmar troops) are gang-raping our women. They are arresting and killing all our men. There is nothing else you can do. Just pray to Allah and to wish us speedy deaths! This is just simply unbearable.”The United Nations has maintained a presence in the country for decades; their first report in 1992 noted the same conditions we see 25 years later. However, Myanmar has frequently blocked aid workers and journalists from the country, and most recently resisted UN efforts to investigate activities in Rakhine state, where most Rohingya live.Alice Cowley and Maung Zarni at the Middle East Institute noted poignantly,Today, while the anti-historical and institutionally amnesiac discourses such as “humanitarian concern,” “communal conflict,” “security and terrorism,” “lack of development,” and “livelihood creation” float through the ether world of foreign embassies, development, and UN agencies, the decades of facts relating to the instrumental role of the central Myanmar State in the abuses of Rohingya are buried alongside very real human corpses—again—waiting to be verified and validated by the right kind of foreign experts and the right kind of UN process…As Rohingyas in Northern Rakhine wait and their diasporic relatives post desperate calls for UN peacekeepers and intervention on Facebook, “Never again!”—the foundational myth of the United Nations—must sound bitterly hollow.The rhetoric being thrown around in Kashmir to encourage deportation of Muslims sounds awfully familiar. They have been called “a demographic threat” to the “history, culture and identity” of Hindu Jammu, accused of being tools of Pakistani terrorist groups and of burdening local communities. Kashmir borders half a dozen states and was a major stopping point on the Silk Road; like the United States, it has always been a blend of ethnicities and cultures. However, tensions introduced by Partition riots and stand-offs with China and Pakistan have led to a volatile and divided Kashmir.India is not a signatory to the UN agreement on refugees, and therefore does not consider its restrictions binding. However, Reuters reported, “The UNHCR’s India office said on Monday the principle of non-refoulement—or not sending back refugees to a place where they face danger—was considered part of customary international law and binding on all states whether they have signed the Refugee Convention or not.”—Erin RubinShare6Tweet5ShareEmail11 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgWarner Bros TV would still consider a possible acquisition of production company Endemol depending on what the latter’s owners decide to do about the future of the company, according to Bruce Rosenblum, president of Warner Bros Television Group.Speaking at the NAB show in Las Vegas yesterday, Rosenblum said: “We very publicly made an offer for Endemol, which was not accepted and Endemol is going through a process to decide what to do. We are sitting on the sidelines now while the current owners work out what the ownership structure will be. It’s on our radar, but we are on the sidelines right now.”Rosenblum also said that the development of new digital distribution opportunities meant that Warner Bros’ back catalogue was becoming more valuable. “Our library is becoming more valuable because there are more opportunities to develop subscription video-on-demand,” he said. However, he stressed that the only business model that made sense was an ongoing partnership with existing distributors. “Warner Bros is not a consumer brand for TV,” he said.He said that the company was dependent on the activities of national US network providers including NBC and CBS to market its shows, and the latter bore the risk of marketing the shows to the public. “The decisions on what primetime shows to put on are made by the networks and not by us and they pay the marketing costs for those shows,” he said.last_img read more
