Local health partnership authorities; sunset repealed. Repeals the sunset clause that allows the article on local health partnership authorities to expire on July 1, 2006, thereby establishing the law indefinitely. The law provides that government and private entities may join forces to address the health care needs of an area and assist in providing such services in a coordinated manner so as to eliminate duplication and inefficiency. This bill is identical to HB 714. Read the Bill »
