Mental Health System Overhaul Expected To Get Boost Before Congressional Recess

The Congressional Quarterly (7/16, Attias, Subscription Publication) reported that efforts in Congress “to overhaul the mental health system are expected to get a boost before the August recess with the introduction of a bipartisan Senate plan tracking with a House package that isn’t likely to be considered until later this year.” According to CQ, “Sen. Christopher S. Murphy, D-Conn., said the soon-to-be introduced bill would resemble the House plan (HR 2646) by Pennsylvania Republican Tim Murphy.” The Senate bill “is being crafted with Louisiana Republican Bill Cassidy.”
