CONCORD - Today, HB 1639, a bipartisan omnibus health care bill, was signed into law.
Senator Tom Sherman (D-Rye) issued the following statement in response:
“New Hampshire’s health care system will be recovering from the direct and indirect impacts of the coronavirus pandemic for years to come. HB 1639 works to address not only the immediate needs as related to the virus, including authorizing pharmacists to administer a COVID-19 vaccine when one becomes available, but the long term effects on public health by giving the state the necessary funding and tools to study and expand treatment and recovery options for opioid addiction. This comprehensive legislation is the result of bipartisan collaboration and I am happy to see it signed into law today.”
