This session in Concord has been tough, but the past two weeks have been full of legislative successes for the Granite State!
I’ve been hard at work advocating for New Hampshire families with bills fighting for everything from birthing centers to disaster relief loans. I’m excited to share that, together, we’ve seen some major progress.
Most notably, my bill SB407, the Healthy Moms and Healthy Babies Act, passed the House with resounding bipartisan support! This legislation expands coverage for postpartum health care services and I was glad to see it receive bipartisan support.
We also had public hearings for four of my other bills in the House Health and Human Services Committee:
SB335, which streamlines the delivery of health care
SB337, which improves critical data sharing to allow for better EMS and trauma responses
SB408, which provides more financial stability for NH’s freestanding birthing centers
SB419, which would strengthen our regional public health networks
This exciting progress will directly improve the lives of all Granite Staters. I’m proud to see us band together to advance this legislation.
Even with Senate Republicans in control I’ve advanced meaningful legislation by working across the aisle. But we have more to do in order to make progress on our other priorities, including reducing costs, strengthening public education, and ensuring that women have the right to make their own health care decisions. In order to continue our work, I need your help to return to the Senate in 2022. Please join us in our fight by donating $22 today!
