Great news - Sen. Debbie Mayfield and Rep. Ralph Massullo, M.D., have refiled the bait-and-switch bills for consideration in the upcoming 2018 Legislative Session! We’re so grateful to our sponsors for their continued support. You might recall that the bill passed the full Senate during the 2017 Session, but the House bill stalled after passing out of the Health Innovation Subcommittee. The links to the newly filed bills are below.
