Donnelly, Young Welcome Introduction of Bipartisan House Companion to Support Law Enforcement Mental Health
Washington, D.C. – Indiana’s U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly and Todd Young welcomed news today that a companion version of their bipartisan Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Donnelly-Young bill was introduced earlier this month in the U.S. Senate. U.S. Congresswomen Susan Brooks (IN-05) and Val Demings (FL-10), who served as Orlando’s first female Chief of Police, introduced the matching legislation in the House.
Donnelly and Young said, “We welcome this bipartisan companion bill in the House of Representatives, another step towards ensuring that law enforcement officers have access to mental health services when they need them. Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day protecting our communities, and this bill would let them know that we have their back. We urge leaders in the House and Senate to quickly bring this bipartisan legislation to the floor, so we can pass this commonsense bill.”
