On Tuesday’s “Legislative Review,” we have details about a bill that would accelerate the implementation of the state’s involuntary commitment law. In 2010, the state Legislature passed a law making it easier to commit dangerous people with mental illnesses. But it never got funded. The measure discussed Wednesday would provide funding and move up the implementation date to next year.
We also cover Senate floor action, as well as a public hearing over a measure that would prohibit the state’s ferry department from designing boats in the future.
