HB 1501 Passes Senate and House

Legislative Update: HB 1501 Passes Senate and House; Moves to Governor's Office

After a 4-year process, TAMFT is excited to announce HB1501 has passed both the House and Senate and is on its way to the Governors’ Desk! We have been in touch with the Governor’s office, and we are not anticipating a veto. 
On Wednesday, the House concurred with Senate amendments, with HB 1501 passing by a vote of 129-14 at 5:30 p.m. with key deadlines looming. After many meetings, working closely with our Social Work and LPC partners, the creation of the Behavioral Health Executive Council is now official. 

Thank you to every member who called, emailed, wrote, and met with their Representatives and Senators this legislative session--we could not have done this without your support!
We will bring you an update next week to share the rest of TAMFT's work this session.
