Senate Bill 676: A Bill Regarding Health and Medical Services

Authors:
Senators Conti, Tomlinson, Rafferty, Logan, Kitchen, Costa, O'Pake, and Stack.

Summary:
This bill would have revised the health and medical services provisions of state law for all students. The most significant change would have been the increase in the frequency of medical exams. It would have eliminated exams for students in the sixth grade but would require such exams for fourth and eighth graders. Homeschool students must receive these same services. HSLDA opposes any effort to increase state-mandated medical exams of children.
