It was a very productive “health day.” We have ironed out the disagreeing provisions of the Mental Health bills during the bicameral conference meeting in the morning where we eventually signed the bicameral report, and conducted a public hearing in the afternoon, as chair of the Senate health panel, for the proposed Dialysis Center Act.
