RICHMOND —Gov. Terry McAuliffe heads to Charlottesville on Monday to mark two milestones.

At a ceremony with state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds, D-Bath, McAuliffe will commemorate his signing of Senate Bill 260, the mental health legislation Deeds backed after his family tragedy in November.

The senator’s son, Austin C. “Gus” Deeds, 24, had been released from an expired emergency custody order just 13 hours before he stabbed his father and shot himself at their Millboro home on Nov. 19.

The bill that takes effect July 1 extends the emergency custody order duration from six to eight hours and requires that state hospitals admit people for temporary detention within that time, although state officials will have an additional four hours to look for a preferable facility for people under temporary detention orders.

The ceremony is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the University of Virginia Medical Center.

McAuliffe also will address Larry J. Sabato’s final Introduction to American Politics class at UVa. Sabato has taught the lecture class to hundreds of students each year since 1978.

Sabato, who heads the Center for Politics at UVa, has made visits by prominent politicians a hallmark of the course.
