Background:

Senate Bill 32 passed out of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee and is now coming before the entire senate. One Democrat joined three Republicans on the measure to move it to the floor of the Senate. Legislation last year banned parents from bringing young children to homeopathic medical providers. SB 32 removes that restriction so that parents can make the decision about what kind of health care is best for their children.
