Committee Recommendations: We found that this bill was clear, and thoughtfully written. The price that was thought of by Adele and Jenna, two democratic members in the house was thought of as the “adequate price” from both the democrats and the republicans. The written legislation does reflect its stated purpose. On the bill it says that they are going to be receiving mostly from government. We think that they should also raise money from individuals to raise more awareness and to help build these rehab centers. The bill does sound constitutional. Yes the bill is needed to help people suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome and other disorders that occur after the war. This needs to be broadcasted though to the people of the United States and the soldiers because a lot of soldiers could be in denial of these disorders. The achievements from this bill will outweigh any bad affects caused by the bill because the disadvantages would not have as much of an affect as the advantages.
