Senate Redesignates Health Sciences Scholarship Program

The Senate convened at 11 a.m. today to pass two bills and introduce six pieces of legislation.

Senate Bill 316, which relates to tolling with regard to civil actions, was passed unanimously. Senate Bill 394 was passed as well, which would redesignate the Health Sciences Scholarship Program as the Health Sciences Service Program to reflect the program's purpose as a job recruitment incentive.

Among the legislations introduced was Senate Bill 450, relating to the sale and consumption of alcohol in an outdoor dining area. Senate Bill 455, or the "Move to Improve Act," would require healthier foods and at least 30 minutes of physical activity to battle obesity rates and the resulting health costs.

Senate Bills 267, 381, 405 and 435 had their first readings.

  • Senate Health and Human Resources at 1 p.m. in 451M
