NJ Senate votes today

The full New Jersey Senate will vote on SB 1093 TODAY at 2:00 pm. It is supported by grops like NAMI New Jersey, The New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, and The New Jersey Psychiatric Association.

It was also recommended by The New Jersey Governor's Task Force on Mental Health. "The Task Force concluded that any comprehensive reform of a mental health system requires that the needs of the people with the most severe and persistent mental illnesses be addressed," said Task Force Chair Bob Davison."Our careful deliberations and extensive research led us to conclude that for those who are too ill to access mental health services, IOC strikes the appropriate balance of individual's well being and their constitutional liberties."
