Voted on Monday February 27, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

This bill expands the service cancelable loan program for doctors
Adds "Health care providers to the name of the Act >> 'Physicians and Health Care Practitioners for Rural Areas Assistance Act.'"
Basically salaries are matched by the state so hospitals can hire more doctors or double the doctors. This adds this PA's to the list
Expands the number of grants
