8 February 6, 2019 berdeen Times Cont'd from front requires all public school personnel including bus drivers, custodians, coach- es, and all others who in- teract with students to go through annual suicide prevention and awareness training. "We know that when people are trained in sui- cide identification and in- tervention, it saves lives," said Shaw-Tulloch at the JFAC hearing. This legislative ses- sion, Rep. Troy introduced a house joint memorial that is currently on the House floor for, its second read- ing. Rep Troy's HJM 1 re- quests support of Idaho's congressional delegation in proposal before the Federal Communications Commis- sion to designate 611 as the National Suicide Pre- vention and Mental Health Hotline. The current national hotline number is 1-800- 273-8255 and Idaho's Suicide Prevention hotline number is 208-398-4357. "I don't know about you, but if I were in cri- sis that would be a hard number to remember," Rep. Troy said during a House Health & Welfare hearing on Thursday, Jan. 31. Among the funding requests from the Division of Public Health, $117,200 will support the Iclaho Sui- cide Prevention hotline for expansion projects includ- ing local crisis centers, county jails, overnight re- sponse and amplify volun- teer impact. "We know hotlines are evidence-based and we know they save lives," Shaw-Tulloch said at the budget hearing. The Idaho Council on Suicide Prevention will meet in March tentatively to finalize the state's new plan.

Will Congress consider s0-called Green New Deal? From the Editors of E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: What is the so-called Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and is Con- gress likely to go for it? - Mark Talarico, Brooklyn, NY The concept of a "Green New Deal" (GND), first called for in a 2007 New York Times op-ed by Thomas Friedman, has been in the news lately thanks to a protest outside of Nan- cy Pelosi's office in mid-November a week after the 2018 mid-term elections when Democrats took back the House. The goal of the GND is to put America at the forefront of green technologies to meet or exceed our Paris climate treaty commitments while boosting the economy and reducing eco- nomic inequality. Think of it as like President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's original "New Deal" that helped get Americans back on their feet economically after the Great Depression through the creation of millions of federally-funded jobs that not only employed people but boosted U.S. economic productivity. The GND aims to give Americans a leg up in profiting off the transition to greener energy sources while simultaneously reducing the divide between the haves and have-nots. At that November protest, hundreds of activists affiliated with the so-called Sunrise Movement showed up to call on Pelosi to back omnibus economic stimulus legislation that would put millions of Americans to work on facilitating the transition to an economy powered by 100 percent renewable, emissions-free energy. Later that day incoming Congress- woman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed her support by proposing the creation of a new House Select Committee on a Green New Deal tasked with detailing a "national, indus- trial, economic mobilization plan capable of making the U.S. economy 'carbon neutral' while promoting 'economic and environmental justice and equality'." At least 45 House members have expressed support for the GND, while eight likely Democratic presidential candi- dates (including Jay Inslee, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren) are also behind it. And with the majority of Americans favoring taking strong action against climate change even if it means higher taxes, imple- menting some kind of GND seems like a no-brainer. But environmentalists might not want to hold their breath. For starters, Ocasio-Cortez's proposal for the creation of a new House Select Committee on a Green New Deal won't be ready for a full House vote until 2020. Also, just because 40 members of Congress are supportive now doesn't say anything about where the other 395 Congresspersons stand, let alone the 100 members of the still-Republican-control- led Senate. Meanwhile, conservative critics point out that a Green New Deal could actually hurt the economy more than help it given how reliant we are on abundant and cheap fossil fuels. Even some liberals worry that the GND is trying to bite off more than we can chew. Only time will tell if something like thb GND will become the law of the land--and many greens are keeping their fingers crossed.
