Murphy’s Mental-Health Reform Measure Losing Support Among Some Democrats.

The Hill (5/22, Viebeck) reports that a mental-health reform measure introduced by psychologist Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) has lost “support among some Democrats, raising questions about the bill’s prospects.” In the past week, Reps. William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Gwen Moore (D-WI) and Marc Veasey (D-TX) “withdrew their co-sponsorships,” and Del. Donna Christensen (D-VI) “pulled away on April 2.” Meanwhile, on May 6, Rep. Ron Barber (D-AZ), backed by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), introduced a different mental-health reform bill.
