Avery: officials broke the law

Lincoln State Senator Bill Avery is alleging officials broke the law when they shut down a program for the mentally ill at the Lincoln Regional Center, without telling the legislature.
“The concerns are that some of the most difficult to treat patients are being taken out of a world class, nationally recognized program, that is being ended and there is no apparent placement services or treatment protocols for these patients.”
Senator Avery tells us that they weren’t told of it even though the law requires notification. The program served several mentally ill people who were not progressing in other programs at the psychiatric hospital.
