COLUMBUS—Today, State Representative Beth Liston (D-Dublin) voiced her disappointment that the Ohio House voted against accepting Senate amendments to House Bill (HB) 61, her bill to maintain the safety of mental healthcare providers by exempting their personal and familial information from being released under Public Records Laws.

“Mental healthcare providers are often put in difficult positions while serving their patients,” said Rep. Liston. “HB 61 is a bipartisan, commonsense bill that will allow providers to be able to do their work without having to fear for the security of themselves or their families.”

HB 61 now heads to conference committee.
