Hello Health Care Advocates,

We are headed to the halfway point of the legislative session and things are moving fast!

Check out our full bill tracker on our website; you can also find links to these weekly session emails and other updates from our team on that page. 

A few highlights from Week 3:

  • hb81 - Mental Health Days for Students: Passed the House, headed to Senate 

  • hb194 - Diabetes Prevention Program: in House HHS Committee TODAY at 3:40

  • hb206 - Epinephrine Auto-Injector Access Amendments: Passed House, Passed Senate HHS, headed to Senate floor

  • sb63 - Caregiver Compensation Amendments: Passed the House, headed to Senate HHS

  • sb103 - Dental Hygienist Amendments: Passed the Senate, headed to the House

  • sb128 - Family Planning Services Amendments: Passed Senate HHS, headed to Senate floor (see this Deseret News article for more!)

  • sb158 - Children's Health Coverage Amendments: Introduced! 🎉 Waiting for committee 

We are still concerned about the Governor's plan to restructure the Department of Health and Department of Human Services. 

Action Items:

  • Let us know if your organization would like to sign on to this letter
  • Send questions and concerns to constituent services: constituentservices@utah.gov 
  • Reach out to legislators with your concerns (you can use the messages in this one-pager)

You can see the notes from this week's Health Care Round Table linked here, and you can plan to join us on Thursdays at 1:00 for policy discussions, strategy brainstorming, and updates from advocates and elected officials. 

Stay well, 

The UHPP Team
