State Sen. Doug Beck Co-Sponsors ‘Clean FRA’ Bill on First Day of Extra Session

State Senator Doug Beck Co-Sponsors ‘Clean FRA’ Bill on First Day of Extra Session

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Doug Beck, D-St. Louis, has co-sponsored a measure to extend Missouri’s Federal Reimbursement Allowance (FRA) as a stand-alone bill. The proposal, referred to as “Clean FRA,” contains no provisions to prohibit providers from prescribing birth control or women receiving MO HealthNet benefits from accessing contraception. The bill is meant to be a noncontroversial avenue to leverage billions of matching federal dollars to help subsidize MO HealthNet, or Medicaid.

“I do not support banning birth control for women on Medicaid, and I urge my colleagues to join me in supporting a ‘Clean FRA’ to protect billions of dollars in health care funding,” Sen. Beck said. “The health and well-being of Missourians should never be used for partisan games — a clean FRA puts people first.”

The governor called an extra session after the General Assembly failed to pass the FRA bill during the regular session. Under current state law, the FRA sunsets every year unless the Missouri Legislature votes to extend it. The language in the “Clean FRA” mirrors the legislation passed the last three years and extends the sunset clause for five years. In FY 2020, Missouri’s FRA program generated $1.59 billion in General Revenue and an additional $3.07 billion in federal matching funds for Missouri’s Medicaid program. By not passing a “Clean FRA,” Missouri could miss out on more than $4.6 billion in funding for the state’s Medicaid program.

Attorney General James Urges Senate to Pass Equality Act

AG James and Coalition Take Action to Protect LGBTQ+ Community from Discrimination
NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today continued her fight to secure and protect the fundamental rights, civil liberties, and well-being of members of the LGBTQ+ community in New York and across the nation. Attorney General James, as part of a coalition of 25 attorneys general, today sent a letter to U.S. Senate leadership urging them to pass H.R. 5, the Equality Act, which would protect Americans from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
“While we celebrate Pride and recognize all the progress made in the 52 years since Stonewall, the LGBTQ+ community is still fighting every day for their most fundamental rights,” said Attorney General James. “It is well past time for us to codify federal protections for LGBTQ+ individuals and make good on our country’s promise of equal protection under the law for all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, or religion. My office will continue to stand with our LGBTQ+ neighbors until they are able to celebrate who they are and whom they love without fear of unfair treatment.”
The Equality Act would strengthen federal legal protections for LGBTQ+ Americans by clarifying and modernizing federal civil rights law and would prohibit discrimination against LGBTQ+ individuals in employment, education, federally-funded programs, housing, public accommodations, credit, and jury service.
In June 2019, Attorney General James co-led a coalition of 22 attorneys general in filing an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that the Civil Rights Act should protect LGBTQ+ Americans from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Then, last June, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Attorney General James’ cause that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects employees who are fired for being gay or transgender. The court determined that employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity is discrimination on the basis of sex, which is prohibited by Title VII.
In their letter today, the coalition asserts that despite the high court’s decision, the absence of explicit federal prohibitions on discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity leave LGBTQ+ Americans vulnerable to experiencing discrimination in education, housing, credit, health care, federally-funded programs, and the jury system — essentially constituting legalized discrimination.
The Equality Act addresses these gaps by clarifying that existing protections under federal civil rights law include discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, thereby creating and expanding protections for LGBTQ+ Americans facing discrimination in education, employment, housing, credit, and public facilities. The legislation would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity, in sections of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibit discrimination in public accommodations and federal funding.
Additionally, the legislation would expand the definition of public accommodations to expressly prohibit sex discrimination, such as denying services to people because they are pregnant or breastfeeding, or denying transgender individuals access to sex-specific restrooms corresponding to their gender identities. Lastly, the legislation would enable the U.S. attorney general to intervene in federal court actions alleging denial of equal protection of the laws based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
In their letter, the attorneys general reiterate their commitment to protecting their citizens from unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. By increasing and specifying federal civil rights protections, the Equality Act would empower state attorneys general to better protect the LGBTQ+ communities in their state. For example, the legislation adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of groups protected under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Fair Housing Act — both of which state attorneys general routinely enforce.
While a number of states, including New York, have amended their laws to expand protections for LGBTQ+ residents, the Equality Act is needed to fill the gap in the 27 states where LGBTQ+ Americans currently have no protection against discrimination. In New York state specifically, LGBTQ+ residents are now protected from discrimination under the Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act (SONDA) and the Gender-Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA). These laws amended the New York state Human Rights Law to prohibit discrimination based on actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity or expression respectively — many other states have failed to take similar steps to protect their residents. But the coalition insists, in today’s letter, that the Equality Act is needed to create a national standard that expands civil rights protections beyond the existing patchwork of state laws. Furthermore, members of the LGBTQ+ community deserve, like every American, the federally guaranteed right to live their lives free of discrimination.
Joining Attorney General James in submitting the letter today are the attorneys general of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia.

Sen. John Rizzo Files Legislation to Extend Missouri’s FRA without Blocking Birth Control or Risking Health Care Funding

Senator John Rizzo Files Legislation to Extend Missouri’s FRA without Blocking Birth Control or Risking Health Care Funding

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. John Rizzo, D-Independence, has filed legislation to extend Missouri’s Federal Reimbursement Allowance (FRA) program, an extension that has been signed into law by the past three administrations. The legislation introduced by Sen. Rizzo does not include any prohibitions on birth control or birth control providers. Senator Rizzo’s “clean FRA” bill differs from versions filed by other senators, as some of those versions contain language that would block women on Medicaid from accessing birth control. No such birth control prohibitions were included in previous extensions, including those signed into law in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

“The other proposals introduced by some of my colleagues to block birth control for women on Medicaid could potentially jeopardize billions in health care funding, while also increasing the number of unplanned pregnancies among the Medicaid population,” Sen. Rizzo said. “I will not support legislation blocking birth control for women, and I am offering a path forward that protects health care funding, has bipartisan support and has been done before. This ‘clean FRA’ is the only thing guaranteed to protect Missouri’s entire health care system.”

Missouri’s FRA program assesses hospitals a fee, which is used to earn federal Medicaid matching funds. The governor signed a clean FRA (SB 29) in 2019 and again in 2020 (HB 2456). Former-Gov. Greitens signed a clean FRA (SB 775) in 2018. The FRA was put in place by former-Gov. John Ashcroft in the early 1990s.

Current language in several of the extra session FRA bills deviate from previous FRA legislation as these proposals would block women on Medicaid from accessing birth control. Such prohibitions on birth control and birth control prescribers would put Missouri out of compliance with the federal Medicaid program and potentially forfeit federal Medicaid matching funds. In FY 2020, Missouri’s FRA program generated $1.59 billion in General Revenue and an additional $3.07 billion in federal matching funds ($4.66 billion total) for Missouri’s Medicaid program. The governor has released a list of budget cuts that would be immediately necessary if the FRA funding streams are lost.

On Wednesday, June 23, the Missouri Senate convened an extra legislative session to consider FRA legislation ahead of the governor’s July 1 deadline.

Florence County Man Arrested on Child Sexual Abuse Material* Charges

Source: US State of South Carolina

(COLUMBIA, S.C.) – June 23, 2021 – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced the arrest of Matthew Duane Palmer, 39, of Effingham, S.C., on three charges connected to the sexual exploitation of minors. Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force investigators with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office made the arrest. Investigators with the Attorney General’s Office, also a member of the state’s ICAC Task Force, assisted with the investigation.

 

Investigators received a CyberTipline report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which led them to Palmer. Investigators state Palmer distributed multiple files of child sexual abuse material.  

 

Palmer was arrested on June 18, 2021. He is charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, second degree (§16-15-405), a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment on each count.

 

This case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.

 

Attorney General Wilson stressed all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty in a court of law.

 

 

 

* Child sexual abuse material, or CSAM, is a more accurate reflection of the material involved in these heinous and abusive crimes. “Pornography” can imply the child was a consenting participant.  Globally, the term child pornography is being replaced by CSAM for this reason.

Attorney General James Applauds Supreme Court Decision Recognizing Ability of Schools to Protect Students from Bullying

Source: US State of New York

High Court’s Decision Permits Schools to Address Harmful Off-Campus Speech That Disrupts Students’ Learning at School
NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today welcomed a U.S. Supreme Court decision that recognizes the ability of schools to curb cyberbullying and address other off-campus speech that materially and substantially interferes with the learning environment or interferes with students’ rights to be secure at school. In March, Attorney General James, as part of a coalition of 24 attorneys general, filed an amicus brief in the Pennsylvania-based case, Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L., a minor. While the coalition did not take a position on which party in this specific case should prevail, the attorneys general, instead, argued in favor of a legal rule that would allow schools to protect students from cyberbullying and disruptive off-campus speech. The brief urged the Supreme Court to reject a lower court’s rule, which would have largely prohibited schools from regulating off-campus speech.
“All children must have the right to learn in safe environments that empower them to perform at their best, and today’s decision recognizes that should continue to be the case in schoolhouses across the country,” said Attorney General James. “While the internet and social networking sites have made it easier than ever for students to connect both within and outside of the classroom, it has also made hurtful language and behavior more commonplace. This past year, many schools only existed on the internet as a result of the pandemic, so screen names do not cease to exist at a schoolhouse’s front door. I applaud the court’s decision today that acknowledges the power of schools to protect our students and their ability to learn because education is the key to a bright future.”
In this case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit previously adopted a categorical rule that student speech that occurs off-campus on a private social network cannot be regulated by a school. The amicus brief that Attorney General James and the coalition submitted to the Supreme Court disagreed with that analysis and argued for a more flexible rule that would recognize the practical harms that can be caused by online speech. Cyberbullying, in particular, can become disruptive at school regardless of where it originates, and it creates a school climate in which student victims feel unsafe and unable to engage in learning.
In addition to Attorney General James, the attorneys general of California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia submitted the March amicus brief to the Supreme Court.

Attorney General Bonta Announces Sponsorship of Legislation to Provide Oversight of Charitable Giving on Online Platforms

Contact: (916) 210-6000, agpressoffice@doj.ca.gov

SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Rob Bonta today announced his sponsorship of AB 488, legislation that would provide critical oversight of charitable fundraising on internet platforms. The bill, authored by Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin and sponsored by Attorney General Bonta, would authorize the California Department of Justice to exercise supervision over charitable fundraising occurring on internet platforms to protect donors and charities from deceptive or misleading solicitations.

“AB 488 would create the framework to oversee online charitable fundraising platforms by providing my office, which already oversees charitable organizations and fundraisers, the tools to match today’s virtual market,” said Attorney General Bonta. “Supervision of third-party online platforms is essential in order to make sure that donations go towards their intended purposes. This measure will give California’s generous donors and charities the peace of mind we all seek as we support one another amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Over the past year we have learned just how much our society relies on support from the non-profit sector. Whether it’s passing out food to hungry families or grants to the undocumented population, the pandemic shined a light on their tireless work. With online fundraising, there are more opportunities than ever to give to your favorite charity,” said Assemblymember Irwin. “However, it has also opened the possibility for fraudulent actors to operate. AB 488 will update California’s already strong charitable giving laws to provide clear rules for online fundraising.”

The California Department of Justice is responsible for regulatory supervision of charities, trustees, commercial fundraisers, and other legal entities that hold or solicit donations for charitable purposes. In recent years, charitable fundraising on internet platforms has changed the landscape of charitable giving. Internet companies have developed methods for individuals to donate to charities through websites and phone applications that serve as “charitable fundraising platforms.” California’s solicitation laws do not specifically reach these online platforms, resulting in instances of deceit and mistreatment of charitable donations that the Attorney General’s Office is not able to address through enforcement of existing charity oversight laws.

If signed into law, AB 488 would:

  • Create a level playing field for all charitable giving platforms, regardless of business model, by defining two new groups of entities, “charitable fundraising platforms” and “platform charities” that are subject to the Attorney General’s supervision;
  • Require covered entities to provide meaningful and transparent disclosures on their internet platforms, promptly distribute donations, and prohibit solicitations for charities not in good standing with the Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts;  
  • Permit some instances of soliciting for a charity without prior consent if certain criteria that safeguard against harm to charities and the public are met; and
  • Authorize the Attorney General’s Office to implement regulations to require donor notification and reporting requirements, and to encourage transparency and accountability.
