Murphy Pledges To Revive Comprehensive Mental Health Legislation Next Year

Congressional Quarterly (12/3, Attias, Subscription Publication) reports that the 113th Congress is most likely not going to act “on comprehensive mental health legislation,” but Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), “the sponsor of a bipartisan House bill, is pledging to ‘revise and revive’ his proposal next year.” Murphy “said he is reviewing the wide-reaching measure (HR 3717) to see what needs to be clarified after getting feedback from lawmakers, families and professionals,” with the aim of introducing “an updated version early next year, he said.”
