This is the draft that will receive two public hearings and a markup meeting through the first half of December before the full Legislature either passes or passes up a final set of rules.

 

"The rules that Public Health proposed can very well change if citizens come to the table and propose reasonable changes," Sen. Rodriguez said. "My committee wants to hear as many relevant viewpoints as possible. We want there to be a healthy debate about these rules. Every rule has to make sense. At the end of the day, these rules need to govern an industry in a way that provides the best care for patients. This is about the patients."

 

The senator is asking residents to read the rules and send him their suggestions and changes prior to the first public hearing, which is next week Tuesday, December 5.

 

"This is your chance to change whatever you don't like about these rules BEFORE they go into effect," the senator wrote on his Facebook page, 'People First - Sen. Dennis Rodriguez, Jr.' "Please email me at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  with any questions or concerns or proposed changes you want to make to these rules."
