Davisson Bills Have Yet to be Heard on the Floor

 

STATEHOUSE- Two of Rep. Steve Davisson's (R-Salem) bills passed out of the Public Health Committee and have yet to be heard on the House floor due to the House Democrats failing to show up to vote.

 

House Bill 1034 would allow pharmacists to administer shingles immunizations to patients with a prescription. This bill passed committee by a vote of 11 to 0.

 

Also, House Bill 1111 proposes that pharmacists be allowed to change a patient's drug regimen schedule with the approval of a physician. HB 1111 passed committee with a vote of 11 to 0.

 

These bills, along with many others, are in danger of never being heard on the House floor due to the lack of Democrat members required for a vote.
