COLUMBUS — The Senate today passed Senate Bill 58, sponsored by Ohio Sen. Theresa Gavarone, R-Bowling Green, which would make significant reforms to Ohio’s competency restoration procedure, according to a press release by her office.

Senate Bill 58 would allow nonviolent, misdemeanor offenders to receive evaluation and mental health treatment outside of a state-operated psychiatric hospital. This will help ensure psychiatric hospital beds are available for Ohioans suffering from serious mental illnesses.
