Hi. Please urge State Senators to quickly pass House Bill 5. As WRAL reports on the temporary funding for Group Homes issue:
The House voted 116-0 on House Bill 5, but it's fate in the Senate remains murky. Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger said Wednesday that he wasn't in a hurry to address the group home issue.
From the Director of The National Alliance on Mental Illness North Carolina chapter:
What is the scoop?
We are hearing, and you may have too, that the Senate is not seeing the urgency associated with this bill's passage. The urgency is this:
-the money will run out immediately for those whose appeals are being concluded
-this affects 1400 people - their lives, their homes, their stability
-it is vitally important that the new administration show they can act quickly and decisively to correct a very important, and very pressing problem
-now is the time to invest in building a stable mental health system, accessible when it is needed
Please contact your Senator urging her or him to address this urgent issue. Thank you.
