Therapy "Ban" Passes Senate CPH

On Tuesday, February 20, 2018, the Senate Consumer Protection and Health passed SB 270.  This bill forces physicians specializing in the practice of psychiatry, physician assistants, psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, or a person who performs counseling as part of the person's professional training for any of these professions to provide "acceptance, support, and understanding to a childen (under 18) coping, social support, and identity exploration and development, including sexual orientation-neutral interventions."

The votes in CPH were as follows: 7 Aye(s): Senator(s) Baker, Tokuda, S. Chang, Espero, Ihara, Nishihara, Ruderman

If you want to learn more about this issue, please listen to this great interview with Stephanie Currie from Family Policy Alliance and David Pickup a national therapist.

Upcoming Legislative Dates:

MARCH 2, 2018  |  FIRST DECKING (BILLS)

Deadline for bills to emerge from all their committees (with committee reports filed) and be submitted to the clerk of the originating chamber. This "decking" ensures a mandatory 48 hour opportunity for final review by the chamber's members before they are asked to vote on the third reading. Note: A bill must pass three readings (votes) in each chamber before being enrolled to the governor.

MARCH 8,2018 | FIRST CROSSOVER (BILLS) 

Deadline for bills to pass third reading in order to move (or "crossover") to the other chamber. If successful, House bills are sent to the Senate and Senate bills are sent to the House for further consideration. 

MARCH 9, 2018  |   LAST DAY TO INTRODUCE SUBSTANTIVE RESOLUTIONS

Resolutions are legislative measures which may request action of a government entity or state the legislature's position on an issue. They don't have the force and effect of law, require only one reading in chamber, and don't enroll to the Governor.

MARCH 12, 2018  |  BUDGET DECKING

Deadline for submitting the budget bill for third reading
