Here in Seattle and King County, an invisible infrastructure is working its magic and keeping us all relatively safe. In the chart below, Public Health is showing how the budget gap has been exacerbated over the years. More must be done at the local, state and national level to ensure prevention efforts are not overlooked. Please keep the conversation civil and help us moderate this thread by reporting any abuse. The opinions expressed in reader comments are those of the author only, and do not reflect the opinions of The Seattle Times. The Chinese military pledged to strengthen the management of its installations after recent inspections revealed some safety and information-security risks. Song Xinfei, a staff officer in Ma's bureau, which is in charge of planning and oversight of military infrastructure, said some overseas intelligence agencies' aggressive efforts have posed substantial threats to the security of PLA facilities. Fake companies or sightseeing tours are often used as pretexts by outside entities to approach sensitive Chinese facilities for the purpose of gathering military secrets, Song said.
In addition, some local governments' pursuit of economic growth and the behavior of ordinary residents can cause trouble for the military.


An inspection report cited by PLA Daily shows that a local government near an unidentified naval base in the southern island province of Hainan repeatedly violated regulations by allowing foreign-invested villas to be built inside the base's restricted area, despite the fact that higher authorities spent money to acquire some of the villas and demolish them. Shan Shaoli, another staff officer, said operations at half of the PLA's airbases have been disturbed by high-rise buildings irregularly constructed by local governments or developers since 1995.
To resolve the potential threats to the military facilities, the National People's Congress Standing Committee, China's top legislature, passed a set of amendments to the Military Facilities Protection Law on Friday.
The revised law requires local authorities to take military facilities into account and seek input from the PLA when reviewing development projects that might affect military facilities. Wei Guirong drives his granddaughters from kindergarten on his home-made three-wheeled vehicle in Luorong county, Liuzhou city of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, on May 19. For the prevention division, composed of staff members devoted to minimizing communicable diseases, this means a potential loss of $4 million affecting the department’s capacity to conduct disease investigations, combat obesity and tobacco use, inform the public and collect data to identify health trends. In 2000, voters repealed the state motor-vehicle excise tax, which had been a major source of funding for public-health services.
Still, thousands of patients — mostly women, children and infants — are at risk of falling through the cracks.
The committees are usually composed of officers and civil servants temporarily assigned for short-term duty. Congress continues to politicize public health while its members slash federal funding to local governments.


The work they do is essential and up against a chronic funding gap that can no longer be ignored, as stated in Monday’s Seattle Times editorial. This is the division that controls communicable diseases, collects data and informs the public among other duties. While the cost of doing business keeps increasing,  state and general funds have simply not kept pace.
