Bill to License Single ORs is Reintroduced
As we reported two weeks ago, Governor Chris Christie pocket vetoed a bill passed by the Legislature in the last legislative session, which would amend the law governing surgical practices and require them to be licensed by the Department of Health and Senior Services. Following a pocket veto, a bill cannot go back to the Legislature for an override vote, but must be reintroduced in the new legislative session.
Last week S-1210/A-1836 was introduced, which would, if passed again by the Legislature and signed by the Governor, require surgical practices to be licensed by the Department. We will continue to monitor this bill and report further action.
