PINEVILLE, Louisiana (KALB) – The overhaul of Central State Hospital has been underway for years, with lawmakers and local officials pushing for it to take on new life and fill a gap in care available to mentally ill patients in the region and in facilities. state corrections.

That reality is getting closer, with the new central facility now located adjacent to the Pinecrest Support and Service Center off Esler Field Road, remaining in Pineville. The current plan is for the facility to house 120 beds, but Sen. Jay Luneau of District 29, the lawmaker leading the effort, said he hopes to see that number increase to 200 beds. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

“When I’ve spoken to sheriffs across the state, their number one issue is that they have to house so many mentally ill people, and they don’t have the facilities to take care of them, they don’t don’t have the programs to help them,” Luneau said. “It just creates a lot of problems, and the expense is really, really huge. they’re getting better, they’re getting better, or they’re stabilizing, or they don’t have those issues, so there’s a great need, not only to reduce the population in our prisons, but to provide mental health support to these people.

For the current property in the corridor overlooking Lake Buhlow, which comprises over 400 acres, discussions are ongoing on how best to develop the property for new businesses and industries.

“It has to happen in a way that’s beneficial to the state, but more importantly that it’s done in a way that’s fair and equitable in terms of how we approach it and how we get there,” the mayor of Pineville said. Clarence Fields. “Also, not that anything is there. It has to be the right thing that matches the footprint and also the vision of the Town of Pineville.

District 27 Representative Mike Johnson noted the need for a master plan for the development of the property.

“You have to have a plan and you have to try to meet those needs in a coordinated way, so you don’t have a development that makes another part of a development less valuable,” Johnson said.

District 26 Representative Ed Larvadain hopes to see the addition of businesses seeking to create a future for young people in central Louisiana.

“We would like to create an area where we can only have sustainable jobs, $10, $15, $20 an hour jobs, skilled labor,” Larvadain said. “We would like to have that. But I reflect with the local actors, and I say: ‘This is what we want. Let’s go out. Let’s take money for LEDs. Let’s find employers who want to grow. Because if we don’t bring in the kind of businesses we want, we’re just going to get anybody. And I don’t want just anyone. I don’t want to build a hamburger franchise where you bet on $9, $10 an hour. No. We want good, sustainable jobs so we can keep our young people here.

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (41NBC/WMGT) — Baldwin County leaders met with state officials Wednesday to inspect 13 Central State Hospital buildings.

The inspections follow a lawsuit filed by the county against the state’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities over an alleged breach of contract. The department blames the state for poor building maintenance.

“It was the department’s responsibility and duty under Georgia law to maintain its properties,” said Brandon Palmer, an attorney hired by the county.

The contract between the county and the state was established in 1999. Palmer says the state failed to take care of the buildings and that caused several problems for local fire crews.

“Fire crews come into these buildings,” he said. “They need to be maintained for the safety of citizens and firefighters who go there.”

According to County Executive Carlos Tobar, Wednesday’s inspections provide insight into conditions.

“If you look at the photos of the Chernobyl buildings and the photos of the Central State Hospital, you won’t be able to tell the difference,” he said. “It was a nuclear disaster. It was the political disaster of the state of Georgia. They left us, it’s a dangerous situation.

Tobar says the buildings pose dangers to anyone who enters them as well as residents who live near the buildings.

“It’s a disaster for our community,” he said. “It’s a public safety issue. It is an environmental hazard. It hurts businesses that come here. It harms the citizens who come here.

Inspections will continue until March 7. The county says no court date has been set.

By Harsh Mander, Anjali Bhardwaj, Jagdeep Chhokar*
On January 18, 2022, a petition was filed in the Supreme Court (SC) regarding the central and state governments’ failure to comply with the guidelines given in the suo motu migrant workers case.

The SC in its judgment of 29 June 2021 in the case of migrant workers (Suo Motu Writ Petition (Civil) No. 6 of 2020, ‘In Re: Problems And Miseries Of Migrant Labourers’) had given several important directives to ensure the food and social security for migrant workers, including:

  • Order the central government to undertake an exercise under section 9 of the National Food Security Act 2013 to re-determine the total number of people to be covered in rural and urban areas of the state under the National Food Security Act (NFSA) public distribution system as coverage is still based on the 2011 census.
  • Instruction to all state governments to put in place an appropriate program of distributing dry rations to migrant workers without insisting on the provision of proof of identity, and to continue this program until the pandemic continues
  • Directing all state governments to operate community kitchens in important locations with large numbers of migrant workers, provide cooked food and continue until the pandemic continues.

However, the central government and most state governments have failed to implement and operationalize these guidelines.
The non-compliance is all the more worrying as the country is once again facing a growing number of Covid cases and nearly all states have implemented lockdowns, restrictions and curfews, exacerbating the distress. economic and hardship of migrant workers, most of whom are in the informal sector and therefore have no social or financial safety net to fall back on.
They are once again faced with the loss of their livelihoods, uncertainty and hunger.
The petition relies on information accessible under the Right to Information Act (RTI) and governments’ responses to legal notices sent regarding the implementation of instructions to highlight the violation of the SC stop. On the issue of increasing coverage under the public distribution system, it is pointed out that the central government has so far not launched any exercise to redefine the coverage.
In response to an RTI inquiring about action taken following the SC shutdown, the central government said: ‘Any revisions to state/UT coverage will be possible after the release of the next census data. The judgment rendered by the Honorable Supreme Court is currently under review”.
According to government information and press releases, it has been confirmed that the 2021 census has been delayed due to Covid and data is unlikely to be released in the next two or three years.
The government’s failure to initiate the re-determination of coverage is in clear violation of SC guidelines which were in the context of the pandemic and the suffering caused due to food security exclusion and therefore required urgent action. and limited in time.
Following the June 29, 2021 shutdown, legal notices were sent to all states to ensure timely compliance with CS directives, including the directive to state governments to establish a system for the provision of dry rations to migrant workers who do not. not have ration cards.

No program has been put in place for the equally poor and vulnerable families who do not have ration cards

Only five states responded to the legal notices, of which only the states of Odisha, Delhi and Assam provided details of the scheme formulated by them. In addition, a request has been made under the RTI Act to the central government for details of which states have requested additional food grains to be given to migrant workers and whether the central government has provided the grains.
The response revealed that as of September 2021, only two state governments i.e. Telangana and Meghalaya were seeking additional food grains to provide rations to migrant workers and even this was not provided by the central government.
Therefore, it appears that most states and the Center are not complying with SC guidelines in terms of providing rations to migrant workers.
The petition notes that the central government is well aware of the plight and has therefore extended Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Ann Yojana (PMGKAY) until March 2022, knowing that 80 million people who have ration cards are entitled to receive 5 kg of additional rations (over and above the five kg per person entitlement). However, no provision has been made for equally poor and vulnerable families who do not have ration cards.
The petition calls for the immediate implementation of the guidelines contained in the June 29, 2021 judgment and for central and state governments to file reports on the status of implementation.
The petition was mentioned by Barrister Prashant Bhushan before the Bench of the Chief Justice of India (CJI) on January 19, 2022 for listing the case and the CJI indicated that it would look into it.

Minister of Agriculture Narendra Singh Tomar said on Tuesday that the Center and state governments are working together to meet the goal of doubling farmers’ incomes by 2022.

In 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has set itself a very ambitious goal of doubling farmers’ incomes by 2022.

Even during the pandemic, the agricultural industry held up well, with farmers harvesting bumper crops. Despite tourism taking a back seat during the pandemic, the agricultural sector continued to thrive in Goa, he noted.

Highlight central patterns such as PM-KISAN Launched to empower small farmers, Tomar pointed out that the Center encourages the creation of 10,000 Agricultural producer organizations (OPA) by 2027-2028 with a total budgetary investment of Rs.6865 crore, and that this program is “successfully implemented in Goa”.

He also urged people to practice integrated agriculture, which includes agriculture, horticulture, dairy farming, fish farming and floriculture.
