Georgia Dental Association goes back on word

CO-AGE priority, HB 684, didn't make it out of Rules committee because the Georgia Dental Association broke their word. Here's the sponsor's reaction in today's Georgia Health News:

"HB 684’s main sponsor, Rep. Chuck Martin (R-Alpharetta), went further Monday, telling GHN that the Dental Association, despite its expressed position on the legislation, “was secretly trying to bottle it up in Rules.”

“I’m disappointed and confused that the Dental Association changed their stance on this,’’ Martin added. “It’s fairly clear the bill allows more access, is safe, and is good for Georgians.”
