Legislation in Action

HB 152 (aka. Madeline’s Law) was recently amended into HB7, which is an Ohio House Bill that focuses on various aspects of maternal and infant health. It is very likely this bill will go to a House floor vote in the next few weeks.

A similar bill (HB152) has already passed the House and has been in the hands of the Senate for several months without any further attention/progress. In order for this coverage to be implemented, both the House & Senate must pass this initiative into law!

Therefore, we encourage OSLHA members to reach out to their Senators TODAY to request their urgent attention to HB152 before they break for the summer and campaign season. Please Consider this CALL TO ACTION!  We are passionate about this issue because Ohioans need this support!!


Learn More About This Bill & Contact Your Senator at: https://www.legislature.ohio.gov/legislation/135/hb152
