Our compassion committee member, Forrest Hurd, has committed bi partisan authors for a bill in 2018. The concept is to ensure that catastrophically ill patients have access to low no cost medicine. Forrest has invited Cal Growers to work with him on developing language. Specifically, we will explore:
- Entity type and structure to ensure and allow for nominally commercial activities (compensation for time and goods but no profit)
- Tax credits for business that make donations
- Other relevant provisions
Recommendation: Support in concept
Notes: Staff will keep the committee in the loop throughout the development of language.
