Latest Issue: 2021 Mid-Year Review

The first half of 2021 brought a deluge of legislation. One factor contributing to the large volume of bills is this year’s introductions included not only new legislation, but 2020 carry-over legislation that was derailed due to the pandemic-shortened legislative sessions. COVID-19 public policy remains at the forefront, including legislative efforts to adopt or repeal healthcare provider liability provisions, regulate vaccine delivery, and expand non-physician provider’s scope of practice in light of the declared emergency.
