Uvalde state representative asks Abbott and others for more mental health resources

AUSTIN (NEXSTAR)—Uvalde State Rep. Tracy King said his city needs more beds and staff at their local mental health facility.

He wrote a letter Thursday to Governor Gregg Abbott, Speaker of the House Dade Phelan and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick asking for more resources.

This comes as Robb’s shooting incident investigation committee has heard testimony from law enforcement officers, the Uvalde CISD superintendent, and others.

Members pledged to continue the work to find out what allowed this to happen.

Gov. Abbott and other Republicans have previously said investing in mental health care is necessary to prevent mass shootings.
