Legislative Calls to Resume When Legislature Returns

The Maine Legislature is in recess at present. Should they return for a special session in the fall of 2017 (which the Governor has said will happen), the Weekly Update will feature articles concerning aspects of that work of interest to medicine. Otherwise, legislative report articles will resume, and Legislative Committee calls will begin, when the Legislature returns to Augusta in January 2018.
