CONCORD – Yesterday, in a party-line vote, Republican members of the House ED&A Committee voted to repeal the Board of Registration of Medical Technicians.

Senator Tom Sherman (D-Rye) and Representative Bill Marsh (D-Brookfield) issued the following statement in response:

“On a party-line vote, despite the testimony of medical experts, House ED&A has recommended the repeal of the Board of Registration of Medical Technicians. This puts the entire state at risk of recurrence of the 2016 Exeter Hospital Hepatitis C outbreak, where 1,074 people were exposed to hepatitis C, resulting in at least 32 infections and at least 1 fatality, by the preventable criminal actions of a traveling technician addicted to opioids. Since this Board was established, there have been no further significant outbreaks of illness related to drug diversion in a healthcare facility, making the vote to repeal it both dangerous and illogical.”
