Rep. David Jolly, whose ties to the Church of Scientology have generated recent news coverage, is pushing church-backed legislation to study the relationship between psychiatric drugs and veteran suicide.

"I know this type of opioid abuse has been a concern to the church and they have approached me about it as constituents," the Pinellas County Republican said in an interview.

But he said the church, which is headquartered in Clearwater, did not write the legislation and that veterans groups have raised the issue, too, including Fleet Reserve Association and AMVETS.
