Bill Aims to Combat Teen Suicide


Assembly Bill 2390, which proposes to put help-line numbers on the back of student ID cards, was recently passed unanimously by the state Assembly Education committee and is now under review by the Appropriations Committee.

The legislation to prevent teenage suicides was proposed by Assemblyman Matthew Harper, a Republican from Huntington Beach, who represents the 74th Assembly District that includes Laguna Beach.

Harper is seeking re-election in November and faces four challengers, including first-time candidate and Laguna Beach resident Cottie Petrie Norris.
