National Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019
H.R.1236 would make grants available to state governments that have enacted extreme risk laws to help provide critical funding for implementation, allowing the law to be enforced at its highest potential. This bill provides minimum standards that state-level extreme risk laws must meet in order to be eligible for grant funding while providing enough flexibility for states that do not mirror or that may exceed those standards to remain eligible -- allowing the largest number of states to be eligible for funding.
H.R. 1236 would also empower federal courts to issue Extreme Risk orders. The legislation establishes clear legal standards for when a federal order could be issued including strong due process protections, and it would give family members and law enforcement in all fifty states a path to take action when they observe someone in crisis.
