Each year, 1.5 million children die from vaccine-preventable diseases. Government spending on foreign aid has proven to be extremely effective, however, in reducing these deaths through vaccine programs and initiatives. The Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Initiative, for example, has made great progress since 2000 when it began, saving more than 20.4 million lives from this incredibly contagious disease in total. Still though, every day there continue to be 246 child deaths from measles — deaths that we can prevent with a simple MMR vaccine.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton in 2016 signed a bill allotting an additional $12 million over two years to the state's Peace Officer Standards and Training Board to amp up police training for tense situations. With the funding came additional requirements. Minnesota law enforcement must complete 16 hours of additional training each three-year licensing cycle that focuses on challenging implicit bias, conflict mediation and mental health crisis intervention. The requirements take effect after POST develops its learning objectives for Minnesota peace officers' training.
