Public Comments for 02/14/2023 Health, Welfare and Institutions - Subcommittee #3
SB1090 - Pharmaceutical processor or cannabis dispensing facility; increases number of permits issued.
SB1327 - Comprehensive children's health care coverage program; DMAS shall establish.
I urge the delegates to vote in favor of this resolution by Senator Jennifer McClellan. A Cover All Kids program will provide much needed health care coverage to children and provide them with a healthy start to life. Having lived in a few other states I know what a difference health care coverage can make to children and their families. I was very surprised upon moving to Virginia nearly five years ago how different state coverages could be. As a retired teacher any education issue or health care issue for children should be a concern and of the utmost importance to all of us. They are our future. Let's not continue to let them down.
