State Representative Daniela R. García, of Holland, testified before the House Education Reform Committee today on legislation to help ensure the safety of all students and limit response time for school resource officers called to respond to school incidents.García’s legislation addresses a loophole in restraint and seclusion legislation signed into law in 2016, which calls for specific training of teachers, administrators and education personnel in addition to regulations for seclusion and restraint in emergency situations. Her bill ensures school resource officers, who are contracted to a school district from a law enforcement department in the region, are able to utilize their training to effectively resolve incidents that may arise.“Clarity was needed in a state law to make certain our school resource officers were not limited in their response to incidents that occur within a school,” Representative García said. “Currently, an officer may have to respond to a potentially dangerous situation by placing a student under arrest or wait until a second officer responded to the scene to limit exposing the school officer to legal liability. I’m certain neither one of those options are acceptable to parents across Michigan.”The issue was brought to Representative García by local law enforcement and school officials. Testifying with her today was Holland Police Officer Joe Soto and Holland High School Assistant Principal Kevin Griffin.“I was happy to listen to the concerns my local police and school officials had with this law,” García said. “We’ve been able to work quickly to address this issue that will impact many school districts statewide. Our number one priority has been the safety of students, staff and law enforcement officers, and this bill will help to provide that safety.”HB 5126 remains under consideration of the committee.State Representative Daniela R.

A dominant North Carolina hospital system has agreed to halt insurance practices that hindered patients from finding better health care deals, prosecutors said Thursday.The U.S. Justice Department announced that Atrium Health agreed to a settlement that prohibits the Charlotte-based system from including certain anti-competitive measures in its contracts with health insurers. Prosecutors said the contract restrictions had kept insurers from encouraging patients to find the most cost-effective hospitals and doctors.The settlement will get rid of “restrictions that curb comparison shopping and interfere with competition,” said Makan Delrahim, an assistant attorney general with the U.S. Justice Department.North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, whose office had sued Atrium alongside federal prosecutors, said the settlement will give consumers the ability to find care at a lower cost and to get more transparency about prices.”We can’t allow Atrium to use its size and market dominance to the detriment of healthcare consumers,” he said in a statement.The federal antitrust lawsuit filed in 2016 argued that the hospital chain formerly known as Carolinas HealthCare System had used its market power to keep consumers from exploring options that offered better value.Atrium Health issued a statement Thursday saying it didn’t violate the law and noting the settlement includes no admission of wrongdoing or payment of any fines. Atrium Health said the contract language subject to litigation dates to 2001 and was originally created to ensure that it could compete equally for patients.”Atrium Health has always been a champion for patient choice,” the not-for-profit company said.The health care system, described by the Justice Department as the largest in North Carolina and a dominant provider in Charlotte, also has locations in South Carolina and on the North Carolina coast. The flagship of the system’s nine hospitals in Charlotte, Carolinas Medical Center, is the largest in the city, according to the Justice Department.The settlement will be subject to a public-comment period and must be approved by a federal court.
Bengaluru: In some relief to the embattled coalition government in Karnataka, Congress MLA Ramalinga Reddy on Wednesday said he has decided to withdraw his resignation from the assembly and will vote in favour of the trust vote to be sought by Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy.“I will take part in the assembly session tomorrow and vote in favour of the party. I will continue to remain in the party and serve as MLA,” he told PTI here. Reddy, a former minister, is among the 13 Congress and three JDS MLAs who have tendered their resignations while two independent legislators have withdrawn their support to the 14-month old Kumaraswamy government, leaving it tottering on the brink of collapse.The survival of the Congress-JD(S) government hangs precariously on the eve of the trust vote with the Supreme Court Wednesday holding that the 15 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs, who had moved it, cannot be compelled to participate in the proceedings of the ongoing assembly session.While most of the rebel MLAs have been staying in Mumbai, Reddy chose to be in the city amid reports that Congress was trying to pacify him. The party had also left him out while moving the Assembly Speaker for disqualification of the rebel MLAs, saying he was an “exception.”Reddy too had maintained he would remain in Congress and he has resigned only from the assembly. Hours ahead of the floor test Thursday, Reddy said he would withdraw his resignation letter submitted to the Speaker on July 6.The other rebel MLAs camping in Mumbai said there was no question of stepping back on their resignations or attending the session. If the resignations of the 15 MLAs are accepted or if they stay away from the assembly, the ruling coalition’s tally will plummet to 102, reducing the government to a minority. congressCongress MLACongress-JD(S)HD Kumaraswamy First Published: July 18, 2019, 7:30 AM IST
