House subcommittee hosts Senator Deuell to speak about bills

Subcommittee Chair Susan King led a fast-paced and productive meeting on Thursday morning to consider giving locals more options for HIV and Hep B and C prevention. She and subcommittee members J. Davis, Naishtat, Coleman and Zerwas heard from Senator Deuell, Chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus, as well as House bill authors Chair McClendon and Representative Ortiz.

The authors agreed to sign on to Senators Deuell, Van de Putte, Wentworth, Hinojosa, West and Zaffarini's bill SB188. Chair King and the subcommittee members agreed that Chairman Coleman would lead, and that they would move quickly to draft three changes to the bill to strengthen it.
