(WATCH) Sen. Sampson Supports Public Health Bill That Includes Protections for the Disabled (5/2/2022)

May 2, 2022


Senator Sampson obtains clarification on several components of a 78-section public health bill, which contains many sections that were previously stand-alone bills.

One such section, Section 51, is Senator Sampson’s original stand-alone legislation crafted to ensure that those with disabilities are not discriminated against during the organ donation process. While he supports this wide-ranging measure, Senator Sampson articulated that this approach overwhelmingly does not result in thoughtful legislation and is not good practice for lawmakers.
