  • SIGNED INTO LAW: Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act of 2017

    H.R. 2228, the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act of 2017, introduced by Representatives Susan Brooks (R-IN), Val Demings (D-FL), Doug Collins (R-GA), Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) and Dave Reichert (R-WA), has been signed into law. This bipartisan bill helps agencies create and 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).
  • Historic Tax Cuts for Hoosiers Signed into Law

    The President signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law. The signing of these historic tax cuts into law is a win for people who need tax relief the most: middle-income families. By doubling the standard deduction, increasing the Child Tax credit, lowering the threshold for the medical expense deduction, continuing graduate student tuition exemptions and reducing the tax burden on all taxpayers, Hoosiers in the Fifth District will soon take home more of the money they work so hard to earn. It will also help create more jobs, increase paychecks, raise wages and make the tax code fairer and simpler for hardworking Americans.
  • IN Receives Nearly $5 Million to Further Combat the Opioid & Heroin Crisis

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced that Indiana will receive nearly $5 million in federal funding to combat the opioid crisis. Specifically, the state will receive $3.6 million from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for health centers across the state to tackle mental health issues. In addition, Indiana will receive $1.7 million from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to support prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts.
  • Everyone Has a Role to Play When Combating the Opioid Crisis

    The President's declaration of opioid crisis as a nationwide public health emergency further emphasizes the urgency to provide Americans struggling with substance abuse the tools and support needed in order to overcome this sweeping epidemic. The White House reports that 175 people die of a drug overdose every day. We must remember these statistics represent human lives that are cut short because of addiction.
  • IN Leads the Way In Next Generation Emergency Response Capabilities

    Congresswoman Brooks and Chairman Pai discuss NG911 with local public safety community leaders at the Hamilton County 911 Communications Center in Noblesville. Indiana is ahead of the curve when it comes to public safety. For example, in all 92 counties in the state, Hoosiers can text 911 to receive the help they need. I am proud of the hard work from public safety leaders in the Fifth District who are dedicated to ensuring safety in our communities
