The Ayes Have It: Volunteer Health Services Act Passes
The Volunteer Health Services Act has passed in the Missouri Legislature. If the governor signs it into law, the legislation would allow out-of-state medical professionals to easily provide free, charitable care to Missouri’s neediest — an activity that Missouri license law currently complicates. It is an issue I have talked about a lot, both this year and last. I am glad the bill gained the legislature’s approval.
Some bills are legitimately tough calls, but the Volunteer Health Services Act is, I think, a no-brainer. Missouri should be letting people help people, and in this case, the helpers are highly trained for the purpose. The bill’s passage is a great call. Kudos, Missouri Legislature.
