Walz Statement on Senate Passage of Clay Hunt SAV Act

Feb 3, 2015
Press Release

Washington, DC [2/3/15] – Today, after the U.S. Senate passed and sent to the President Rep. Tim Walz’s (D-MN) bipartisan Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans (Clay Hunt SAV) Act, Walz released the following statement:   

“While this bill represents an important step forward to improve care for our warriors, tomorrow we must start again. We must build upon its passage. We may never completely end this terrible epidemic that is plaguing our country, but if we can save one parent from having to bury their child, one son from losing his mother, or one sister from losing her brother, it’s worth trying with all our might. As we move forward, I will continue working with my colleagues in Congress, veterans, and veterans' advocates to improve mental health care for our warriors and their families. They deserve nothing less.”
