The Good, the Unhealthy and the Silly 7

Good: SB 740 and SB 471 — each of which cope with digital know-how and youngster pornography.

SB 740 would make it unlawful to make use of digital manipulation to change any sexually express media (picture, video, and so on.) to incorporate the picture of an precise minor to make it appear to be the minor is partaking in sexually express conduct. This consists of any picture of a minor, even when that particular person is now not a toddler or is deceased however was a minor when the image was taken. SB 741 offers with generative synthetic intelligence (AI), which can be utilized to create a picture or video or sound recording of a minor who isn’t actual. This invoice would make it unlawful to create, distribute or possess media that reveals a minor partaking in sexually express conduct, even when the minor portrayed was solely generated by AI.

Unhealthy: HB 4299 — “Allow lecturers in Okay-12 faculties be approved to hold hid firearms as a chosen faculty safety officer.” The reply to gun violence isn’t extra weapons. This invoice feeds on the parable that faculty shootings may be prevented by a very good man with a gun. Take a look at Parkland, the place the armed faculty useful resource officer ran away from the capturing, or Uvalde, the place dozens of armed and skilled regulation enforcement brokers stood round and refused to have interaction with the shooter, who then went on to kill a number of extra individuals earlier than lastly being stopped hours later.

Even setting that apart, there are two sensible points with this invoice: 24 hours or much less of coaching is just not sufficient and it undermines all of the efforts faculties have made to maintain firearms out of their buildings. Can a instructor actually be ready to level a gun at one in all their college students? Is 24 hours of coaching sufficient to make it possible for they solely hit the menace, not any innocents, when chaos and panic get away? What if a pupil — or another person — will get ahold of a instructor’s gun and makes use of it to shoot college students and employees members?

Silly: HB 5105 — to take away vaccine necessities for college students attending digital public faculties; expanded by means of modification to permit personal faculties to undertake their very own insurance policies and to permit mother and father citing spiritual beliefs to choose out of vaccination necessities at any faculty in West Virginia.

One of many few issues West Virginia has performed proper with reference to kids and well being is to have childhood vaccine necessities. It has prevented our state from seeing outbreaks of extreme however preventable illnesses like we’ve seen not too long ago with measles in Florida and polio in New York.

Hoppy Kercheval made a very good level in his commentary this week: The brand new “spiritual” exemptions are so unfastened, “What’s to stop mother and father from simply stating a spiritual purpose when the truth is their objection relies on one thing they noticed on the web or heard from a pal?” And we all know there’s a ton of misinformation about vaccines on the web.

Republicans wish to proclaim spiritual freedom or — sarcastically — bodily autonomy on the subject of vaccines, however vaccines are usually not only for the particular person receiving them: Vaccines are important for safeguarding those that can not get vaccinated and for holding illnesses at bay. Consider each vaccinated particular person as a brick in a wall holding out illness: the less bricks within the wall, the extra holes for illness to come back by means of, and the extra harmful it may be for everybody.

Honorable mentions:

The Senate is advancing its personal model of the “Ladies’s Invoice of Rights,” however SB 601 doesn’t embody the modification from the Home model (HB 5243) that eliminates the marital rape exemption. So pay shut consideration to which model is shifting.

After being despatched to Senate Guidelines for a pair weeks, SB 468 — to require faculties to indicate children the anti-abortion propaganda video “Meet Child Olivia” — was resurrected and handed the Senate. Those that spoke in favor of it did so virtually solely on spiritual grounds; those that spoke in opposition to it — together with one Republican lawmaker who’s an precise medical physician — did so due to its inaccuracies.  Make certain your native delegates know this deceptive video has no place in our faculties.
