Categories: Audio,Diana Farrington Audio

Rep. Farrington talks about her HB 4217, that would create a task force, formed under the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, to investigate the causes of suicide among military veterans and seek ways to prevent former members of the military from taking their own lives.  The panel will prepare and present a comprehensive public report of its findings and recommendations by December 2018.  It is estimated that about 20 U.S. veterans take their own lives nationwide every day.
