House Fast-Tracks Veterans Suicide Bill

The Hill (1/9, Matishak) reported that legislation to help prevent suicides among veterans “will likely reach the House floor next week, far sooner than lawmakers had predicted.” The bill, which is titled the “Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act,” sailed through the House Veterans Affairs Committee after being blocked by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) at the end of the previous Congressional session.
