Health Care Facility Regulation (Oppose – Preemption)

Health Care Facility Regulation (Oppose – Preemption)

CS/SB 622 (Grimsley) and CS/HB 597 (Yarborough) are comprehensive bills dealing with health care facilities. Of concern to cities, the bills provide that a designated health care facility owned or operated by a public health trust and located within the boundaries of a municipality is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the county creating the public health trust and is not within the jurisdiction of the municipality.
