DHS-DMH FY 2015 DEFICIT
We understand the Administration and members of the General Assembly are discussing fund sweeps to transfer funds which have a cash surplus to cover FY 2015 deficits. We urge that this solution be used to cover the DHS-DMH FY 2015 deficit.
Please contact your legislators today!
The new Congress has settled in here on Capitol Hill. While we don't yet know which behavioral health bills lawmakers will take up this year, there's one thing we know for sure - it's never too early to start building support for a strong substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery agenda.
Please take action today to help us get a head start, by asking your Representative to join the Addiction Treatment and Recovery Caucus!
