Bill seeks help for combat veterans

help for veterans



A Senate Republican on Thursday filed a proposal aimed at helping combat veterans and their families get mental-health and substance-abuse services.

The bill (SB 128), filed by Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, would direct the Florida Department of Children and Families to help establish the “Florida Combat Veterans’ Care Coordination Program.”
