Dear VACC members:
Delegate H. Morgan Griffith has proposed HB1986, which is summarized below, to include duly trained LPCs in the group of mental health professionals who can evaluate individuals who have been accused of an "abnormal sexual offense". This bill has passed through committee unanimously, and will come to a vote in the house of delegates soon. It would be very helpful if you would contact your delegate to note your support for this legislation. When the bill reaches the Senate, it will be assigned a new number and once again will need your support by contacting your senator.
