The bill repeals the laws relating to extreme risk protection orders.
Under current law, a person can be held on an involuntary 72-hour
mental health hold if the person appears to be an imminent danger to
others or to himself or herself. The bill changes the standard from
imminent danger to extreme risk and defines extreme risk as a credible
and exigent threat of danger to themselves or others through actionable
threats of violence or death as result of a current mental health state.
