X-link to NYSBA blogs

So what are other NYSBA blogs doing this first week of October?
There are several new posts and some cross linking of subjects of mutual interest among NYSBA Section blogs.
The more active blog writing so far is General Practice Section blog (1). Their latest post provides a link to the text of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 text-99 pp, with Subtitle B, sections 511-512 enacting provisions regarding Mental Health Parity & Substance Use Disorder Benefits, (including on p 75 a requirement for a GAO study to be conducted analyzing certain elements of the new law). This Act seems breathtaking in scope based on a scroll through the pages.

(U.S. Congress) - Text of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 passed by Congress and signed by President Bush October 3, 2008. The financial bailout package includes numerous tax ..., and parity for mental health coverage in group health plans.

Posted by David Wilkes, Esq. on September 26, the NYSBA Journal Editorial blog posts its Oct. poll for response by NYSBA members. Several monthly polls have already been conducted, read the comments there.
Earlier in Sept., the Elder Law Section blog provided a post concerning the new Medicare Mental Health law. (3)
