Question of the day: Is AB 988 too big to fail? A 988-telephone number as a behavioral health alternative to summoning law enforcement through 911 calls has broad support and many advantages. Chief among them would be reducing the 16-fold increased likelihood of fatal encounters with law enforcement for persons in a mental health crisis. AB 988 has not been set for hearing. The Clock is ticking!
