Jenna Moyer, Staff Revisor gave an overview of the bill.  She answered questions from the committee.

Joseph House presented his proponent testimony on HB2234. He stated that the passage of HB2234 provides a fix for two problems - 1) a lack of clear expectation of medical oversight; and 2) a process to obtain medical protocol approval that has become increasingly more problematic to successfully achieve each year. HB2234 provides multiple fixes with a simple solution. It appropriately places any potential liability on the party that is ultimately responsible to be providing medical oversight and it clearly defines what is considered medical oversight for the purposes of emergency medical services in Kansas.(Attachment 8)
