Special Session on Health Care Adjourns
March 11, 2016
The Senate adjourned the Second Extraordinary Session on Health Care yesterday after passing a raft of tobacco control bills.
The Governor had called the special session last June to work on the MCO fix and health care issues. Legislators passed a final Managed Care Organization tax on February 29, and were able to pulls several other issues into the special session, including the aforementioned tobacco bills, rate increases for the developmental services community, and the “Right to Die” bill.
Now that the special session has adjourned in both houses, the Right to Die bill can take effect in 90 days.
CSAC will provide a more comprehensive list of special session legislation in the coming days.
