Re: Majority Cosponsors Parity (Parity Alert #23)
The “Senator Paul Wellstone Mental Health Equitable Treatment Act” (S. 486/H.R. 953) has now gained a majority of cosponsors in both the House and the Senate! Congratulations and thank you to all national organizations and your state affiliates which have been pressing members of Congress to make this very visible commitment that will ease insurance discrimination against mental disorders. We also achieved a significant victory when Senator Pete Domenici secured $5.4 billion in the final Budget Resolution to offset costs associated with enactment of parity legislation. See “Background” below for details.
Introduced on February 27 by Senators Pete Domenici and Edward Kennedy and Representatives Jim Ramstad and Patrick Kennedy, this critical legislation now has 57 cosponsors in the Senate and 231 in the House. Only a handful of the previous cosponsors have not signed on to the new bill. However, many of the newest Members of Congress are yet to express their support for mental health parity. Please ask constituents to continue their outreach efforts to these legislators
