To all of our men and women in blue, thank you for standing on the front lines to protect our communities. A couple of weeks ago, Senator Donnelly and I introduced the "Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act". Today, that bill passed the Senate and will now move on to the House of Representatives. This bill works with the relevant federal agencies, mental health providers, and broader law enforcement community to offer opportunities for care. When our police force is healthy and strong, our communities are healthy and strong too.
