The heroin and opioid crisis continues to impact communities across Indiana and our country. The Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing about state efforts to address the crisis. We must alleviate the burden on our foster care system, help babies who are born addicted to drugs, and protect our law enforcement officers and first responders who are overdosing from contact with very small amounts of extremely potent opioids at emergencies and crime scenes.
H.R. 1104, the Veterans To Enhance Studies Through (TEST) Accessibility Act, a bill Congresswoman Brooks introduced earlier this year, was included in H.R. 3218, the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017, a package of 16 bills that will reform and ultimately improve our veteran’s access to GI bill benefits. The Veterans TEST Accessibility Act helps our veterans compete in today’s job market after serving our country.
U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks made it clear to her Grant County constituents this week that treating opioid addictions and mental health issues in the state were still among her top priorities. During her trip to Grant County Monday, Brooks met one-on-one with constituents at Ivy Tech Community College, talked with members of Family Service Society, Inc. and toured the Flannery-Keal Home for victims of domestic violence in Grant County.
Representatives Susan Brooks (R-IN), Val Demings (D-FL), Doug Collins (R-GA), Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) and Dave Reichert (R-WA) introduced H.R. 2228, the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act of 2017, which would help agencies create or improve mental health services for law enforcement officers. It is the companion bill to S.876, introduced by Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Todd Young (R-IN) that passed the Senate in May.
The American Health Care Act passed the House. It will increase competition and choice in the healthcare marketplace, repeal harmful taxes like the medical device tax, eliminate burdensome mandates and the IRS penalty, and put decisions about your healthcare back in your hands. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate to put this bill on the President’s desk.
