For the near future, the Committee will be taking all testimony via Zoom, as the State Capitol Building remains closed to everyone except a few staff people. This has required adjustments for everyone involved, but the process is moving ahead. For our members who want to participate in public hearings, there is no longer a reason to travel to Augusta. This puts all parts of the state on equal footing and we urge members who would have difficulty appearing in person to consider this to take advantage of the opportunity. Watch for details on upcoming bills through E News and MHCA Action Alerts.
