The House Energy and Commerce Committee is poised to mark up a long-stalled mental health bill on Wednesday, which lead sponsor Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) thinks could be brought swiftly to the House floor.

"I think it's going to come, we just have to work towards a date," he told reporters Tuesday after a press conference to rally support for the bill. "I don't want this to languish over the summer. I don't want anybody to have to face another tragedy, whether it's just a single tragedy in their family or a mass tragedy, while Congress is waiting."
