Today House Bill 76, “Access to Healthcare Options” has passed the North Carolina House of Representatives in a vote of 87 to 24.
NC House Speaker Tim Moore said, “This is an historic step forward to increase access to healthcare for our rural communities.”
He continued, “Considering the HASP funds and the work provisions put in place in this bill along with other safeguards, our workforce will remain strong as we expand access to healthcare for those who need it in the most conservative and fiscally responsible way possible. I look forward to a passing a strong conservative budget for North Carolina so that expansion can take affect.”
House Bill 76 will be sent to Governor Cooper for his signature.
