Rep. Abigail Griffin (R-Levant) is pleased to announce that she will begin her first term assigned to the Joint Standing Committee on Health and Human Services for the next two years. Reached for comment this week, Representative Griffin was appreciative for the opportunity to serve on this committee; “I’m looking forward to learning a lot more about what Maine is doing to promote the health and wellbeing of our citizens. I think there is a lot more that can be done, especially in rural areas like ours, and it will be up to the HHS Committee to endorse proposals that help the Department make improvements where they are needed, and to keep successful programs going strong.”

The committee will be responsible with reviewing all new bills relating to the Department of Health and Human Services; MaineCare/Medicaid; children’s welfare and mental health services; child care; maternal and infant health; public health; lead and water testing; immunization; tobacco and e-cigarette sale and use; medical use of marijuana; eating, lodging and campground licensing and inspection; opioid medications and limits; state health system planning; health care facilities; health care workforce; telemedicine; oral health and dental care; substance use disorder; mental health; developmental disability; aging; elderly and disability issues; home and community-based longterm care; nursing facilities and residential care; palliative and end- of-life care; and public assistance.
