The state Senate today advanced budget-related legislation that includes measures focused on protecting Pennsylvanians’ access to high-quality health care.
Senators sent House Bill 1300 to the House for consideration with a 29-18 vote. The legislation authorizes spending for many programs funded by state budget adopted during July. The legislation includes several measures focused on Pennsylvanians’ health care, including:
“HAP and Pennsylvania’s hospital community thank senators for prioritizing Pennsylvanians’ health through measures that strengthen the sustainability of critical health care services in communities throughout the commonwealth, support care for millions of Pennsylvanians, and help to expand much-needed access to behavioral health care,” HAP President and CEO Nicole Stallings said. “As the legislative process continues, HAP looks forward to working with the House to ensure that these critical measures supporting Pennsylvanians’ health care are enacted.”
