The House passed legislation on Tuesday to provide mental health care for

veterans who would otherwise be ineligible because they received an

other-than-honorable discharge from the military.



Passage of the measure, which came by voice vote, comes two days after a

shooting at a Texas church by a gunman who had a record of mental illness

while he served in the Air Force. The suspect was forced out of the military

after a bad conduct discharge.
