Kotek Marks Signing Health Care Bills

(Salem, OR) -- Oregon Governor Tina Kotek held a ceremony in Salem on Tuesday to mark signing two health care bills. HB 2002 was controversial and led to Senate Republicans walking out. It protects patients from lawsuits by other states that have banned abortions and it requires Medicaid and insurance companies to cover gender-affirming care. HB 2697 creates a minimum nurse-to-patient staffing ratio and establishes committees for hospital care providers to improve staffing.
