Colleagues: see below. The Governor is expected to sign the bill and make it law. This is the suicide prevention bill that Representative Orwall has been trying to get passed for at least two years now. Acknowledgements to Deb Casey, Scott Latiolais, Edward Esparza, and Al Souma for their work on the Task Force and legislative testimony in support of this work. I'm sure others of you played a role in this effort and I thank you as well. Stay tuned for official notification and next steps.
