LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Washington, D.C. – The bipartisan Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act, originally introduced by U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Todd Young (R-IN), is headed to President Trump to be signed into law. Donnelly and Young introduced the bill in the Senate in early April and it passed unanimously in May. U.S. Representatives Susan Brooks (IN-05) and Val Demings (FL-10) introduced the companion bill in the House of Representatives in late April and it passed the House in November and cleared the Senate tonight.
Donnelly and Young said, “We are pleased that our bipartisan legislation to support the mental health and wellness of our law enforcement officers will soon become law. Our law enforcement officers work every day to keep our families and communities safe, and it’s important we ensure they have access to the mental health services they need to remain ready to serve.”
