WASHINGTON, DC – Bipartisan Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today sought information on steps taken by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to assess and improve upon our nation’s mental health system following previous incidences of mass violence.
Excerpt: After past tragedies, federal, state, and local entities have reviewed what steps should be taken to prevent future tragedies from occurring… A helpful starting point for the committee’s inquiry is to examine the current and past efforts by federal agencies, in particular those of HHS, to assess and improve upon our mental health system in reaction to previous tragedies.
During the 1970s, fears of “peak oil” drove policymakers to rethink our nation’s energy policy. The idea that America was running out of precious energy supplies was generally accepted as fact. In response to this energy crisis, leaders in Washington implemented an energy strategy aimed at phasing out traditional energy sources and spending more on developing alternatives. But over the last few years, the energy landscape has dramatically changed.
