New Jersey Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy said he looks forward to signing the assisted suicide bill state lawmakers narrowly approved Monday, allowing terminally ill individuals to legally end their lives. “Allowing terminally ill and dying residents the dignity to make end-of-life decisions according to their own consciences is the right thing to do,” Murphy said. “I look forward to signing this legislation into law.”However, Patients Rights Action Fund Executive Director Matt Valliere said New Jersey lawmakers who voted for the bill “failed” the state’s citizens by allowing the bill to pass. “In other states where assisted suicide is legal, it has proven impossible to regulate and leaves the door wide open for abuse and coercion,” he warned. “The vulnerable in society: the poor, terminally ill, and people with disabilities, will be the most negatively affected by assisted suicide. New Jersey ought to be investing in better … [Read more...] about New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy: ‘I Look Forward to Signing’ Assisted Suicide Bill

But when it came time to sign up for the program herself this year, Lavoie, 65, faced the same concerns and uncertainties as anyone else navigating the maze of Medicare options, regulations, supplemental plans, and potential land mines.“It’s time-consuming trying to sort through it,” Lavoie said. “You’ve got to look at coverage, premium, network, drugs, how much it’s going to cost and what the restrictions are. There’s so many different plans, and they all have their own rules and regulations.” Advertisement With roughly … [Read more...] about Enrolling in Medicare can be confusing. Here’s how to do it.
By Cal Matters | PUBLISHED: November 8, 2018 at 6:10 am | UPDATED: November 8, 2018 at 6:11 am Gavin Newsom first ran for governor in 2010, an effort he abandoned and then relaunched in 2015 with the long, long campaign that crescendoed Tuesday tonight. Now that California voters have given the 51-year-old Democrat the job he has sought for eight years, he is about to discover that winning was the easy part. Governing is hard, particularly in a state as big, complex, troubled and expensive as California. We have the world’s fifth largest economy and, with our cost of living, the nation’s highest rate of poverty. The shortage of affordable housing has pushed the middle class out of the state’s coastal jobs centers—or out of state altogether—while exacerbating a decades-long crisis of homelessness and sending college housing costs into the stratosphere. Pension costs weigh on city finances, wildfires rage nearly year-round, the academic achievement gap … [Read more...] about How Gov-Elect Gavin Newsom could shape California’s future, issue by issue

Matt Charboneau The Detroit News Published 3:31 p.m. UTC Aug 31, 2018 East Lansing — The days of pulling double duty are over for Bill Beekman. Named Michigan State’s permanent athletic director on July 16 after serving for five months in an interim basis, Beekman had been continuing to help out in his old position as secretary for the Board of Trustees. But Thursday marked the first time he hadn’t attended a board meeting in more than 10 years, and it was his first chance to be only Michigan State’s athletic director. That position alone comes with its set of challenges as Beekman took over after Mark Hollis stepped down in late January. The university and the athletic department have been dealing with the consequences of the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal for some time, and this week, the NCAA notified MSU that it did not find any reason to continue investigating whether it had violated any legislation with regard to the Nassar case. It also stated … [Read more...] about Q&A: New Michigan State AD Bill Beekman: ‘You’re always wanting to make the place better’
