Ohio courts would have to report certain mental health information for inclusion in a law enforcement database under a bill headed to the governor.
The House passed the measure on a 92-0 vote Wednesday. The Senate previously passed the bill.
Courts would be required to report to law enforcement agencies those who have been found not guilty by reason of insanity, or people who have been convicted of a violent offense and ordered to get mental health treatment.
The bill is named after a sheriff's deputy who was fatally shot two years ago.
Last week, following a news conference to announce a new health insurance mandate on treating children with autism, Governor John Kasich also addressed 'mental health' and it's connection to violence. He announced that five million dollars in new funding would be available to help Ohio families with intervention and counseling. WYSO's Jerry Kenney has more on the story.
