WASHINGTON. D.C. – On January 12, Congressman Frank Guinta voted in support of the Clay Hunt SAV Act, a bipartisan bill to improve mental health care and suicide prevention resources for American servicemembers. Following the Senate’s passage of this legislation on February 3, Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement:
“Far too often, our veterans return home with wounds in mind and body. In New Hampshire, we have one of the highest veteran populations per capita in the nation - we know all too well how difficult a veteran’s transition into civilian life upon returning from overseas can be. I was honored to support this legislation and with the Senate’s bipartisan passage of the Clay Hunt SAV Act, we as a Congress have taken an essential step towards ensuring our service members have the very best care and resources to assist them. We must continue to find these common sense, bipartisan solutions. Our nation’s heroes deserve nothing less.”
The bill now awaits the President’s signature to become law.
