Your Committee has amended this measure by adopting the Proposed Draft and changing its effective date to July 1, 2050, to promote further discussion.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B.
