  WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-CA) and U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) introduced the bipartisan “Ferry Service Expansion Act” with Representatives Rick Larsen (D-WA02), Aumua Amata Coleman Radewagen (R-AS), Albio Sires (D-NJ08), Alan S. Lowenthal (D-CA42), Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan (D-MP), Barbara Lee (D-CA13), Jared Huffman (D-CA02), James R. Langevin (D-RI02), Eric Swalwell (D-CA15), Derek Kilmer (D-WA06), Suzan K. DelBene (D-WA01), and Julia Brownley (CA-26) as original cosponsors. Congressman Garamendi is a senior member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. Senator Murray is the Assistant Democratic Leader of the Senate Democratic Caucus and sponsored landmark ferry legislation in the 112th, 111th, 109th, and 108th Congresses. “With rising sea levels due to man-made climate change and increasing congestion on our bridges, I strongly support expanding ferry service across the Bay Area. I am thrilled to partner with Senator Murray from Washington State on this much-needed legislation to improve ferry service for commuters and visitors alike. Our ‘Ferry Service Expansion Act' would provide more federal funding to help retrofit diesel WETA ferries to reduce emissions and eventually replace the entire Bay Area fleet with zero-emission ferries built by skilled American workers,” said Congressman Garamendi. Specifically, the “Ferry Service Expansion Act” would: Increase funding for both the Federal Highway Administration's formula and the Federal Transit Administration's competitive grant programs to the levels requested by the Public Ferry Coalition. Provide $640 million total from fiscal years 2023 to 2026 in formula grants from the Federal Highway Administration's Ferry Boats and Ferry Terminal Facilities Formula Program, a $180 million increase over current law. Provide $450 million total from fiscal years 2023 to 2026 in competitive grant programs from the Federal Transit Administration's Passenger Ferry Grant Program, a $300 million increase over current law. Provide a one-time $1.25 billion investment in federal transit funding for passenger ferries serving urbanized areas like San Francisco-Oakland and Seattle. Allow States to use their federal Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) for hovercraft ferry projects. Under current law, only “watercraft” ferry projects are available, not hovercrafts performing the exact same overwater transit service. In December 2020, the Bay Area Council released a feasibility study for employing hovercraft to provide ferry service in the South Bay. Make all Census Bureau-designated rural areas nationwide eligible for Ferry Service for Rural Communities Program established under 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (Public Law 117–58). Make the 85% federal cost share permanent for the replacement or retrofit of diesel-powered ferries that substantially reduce emissions. Under current law, this more generous federal cost share will end after fiscal year 2025. Normal cost share if 80% for toll roads, bridge, tunnels, and ferry projects. Apply “Buy American” and Davis-Bacon prevailing wage requirements to the two newly authorized ferry grant programs established under the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Make privately operated passenger ferries eligible to register Capital Construction Funds with the Maritime Administration (MARAD), which allow vessel operators to forgo paying federal business taxes on such vessels provided all that forgone tax payment is reinvested in constructing new US-flagged vessels in American shipyards. Under current law, only cargo vessels and commercial fishing boats are eligible for this special tax exemption.

Mental Health for Leaders
S06 | E07 Answering “What is Wellbeing?” with Sarah McGuinness & Chris Hewitt

Mental Health for Leaders

How do you define wellbeing? It has a lot of different meanings, and it really depends on what lens you're looking through. That brings a challenge to organizations or teams that are trying to do the work.Many organizations have taken roles in human resources and tacked on “wellbeing” supervisor responsibilities. They know they need someone in that role but aren't really willing to dedicate the necessary resources. And depending on what experience that new wellbeing professional has, this looks wildly different, even within different teams in the same organization.What can be done about this? Actually defining what wellbeing and wellness mean and creating space and time for the person in the role to perform effectively in this role.But to get to that point, the organization and its leaders need to be on board with the investment of time, talent, and resources. This week on the podcast, we're talking to Sarah McGuinness and Chris Hewitt of Revolutionaries of Wellbeing about changes in corporate wellness programs, why being proactive benefits everyone, and how to look at wellness through a different lens.About Sarah McGuinness:Sarah McGuinness is a wellbeing disruptor, burnout awareness advocate and Founder/CEO of Revolutionaries of Wellbeing (ROW). ROW helps wellbeing leaders to be change makers and to create better workplaces, together. With a community of wellbeing champions from organisations around the globe, ROW is dedicated to helping leaders to develop professional expertise, access practical tools and resources, and network with peers and experts to meaningfully improve wellbeing.Sarah brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in corporate wellbeing and behaviour change and has supported well-known organisations to improve the wellbeing of their people, including Sealord, the NHS, nib and Weta.She draws on her honours degree in psychology and degree in communication, training in health behaviour, coaching, fitness and facilitation, plus a 15+ year career in the corporate sector specialising in leadership and organisational development in Australia and New Zealand.She is a passionate mental health and wellbeing champion and is determined to reduce stigma and improve conversations around mental health, particularly with having lived experience of burnout, anxiety, and fibromyalgia.

In today's Podcast, Steve had the privilege of speaking with J.R. Woodgates. The author of Daily Light on the Prisoner's Path, and former Voice of America on-air personality. J.R. graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in broadcast journalism. He enjoyed a long radio career, internationally for 27 years at the Voice of America, locally in Washington, DC for 13 years at WETA part-time. He was live on-air with VOA when the planes exploded into the Twin Towers, in PA, and the Pentagon on 9/11, and the world experienced the most horrific terror attack ever seen on U.S. soil. Now, as an advocate for restorative justice, it's his goal for prisoners everywhere to learn about and experience the relief, restoration, and empowerment they can enjoy as repentant, forgiven, and blessed sons of God.

It's one of the most appealing stories from World War One - certainly featuring New Zealand troops - though it's surprisingly not commonly known here. Not compared to Gallipoli, say, or the Battle of the Somme. But it's different in the small French town of Le Quesnoy where the streets reflect their enthusiasm for Aotearoa. Streets like Rue de la Nouvelle Zélande, Rue Hélène Clark and Place des All Blacks... Now finally we're setting up a commemoration of how New Zealand liberated the town without the loss of a single civilian life. And we're bringing in the big guns. The New Zealand Memorial Museum Trust has employed Weta Workshop's Andrew Thomas to lead the project, fresh off a similarly huge undertaking - the New Zealand Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. Lynn Freeman asked Andrew why the story resonated so much with him.
