Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today praised the passage of the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act. The bipartisan bill introduced last month offers several critical measures that would improve mental health care and suicide prevention resources for American service members. Bennet is a cosponsor of the bill.
Today, an amendment introduced by U.S. Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO), Richard Burr (R-NC), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) received 59 votes in the United States Senate, sending a clear signal that the Senate supports a permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). While the amendment needed 60 votes in order to meet a procedural hurdle, today's vote proves that a bipartisan majority of the Senate supports the LWCF.
