Legislation Update

Aloha Midwives Alliance of Hawaii members and supporters,
UPDATE: 3/16/17: On 3/16/17 HB1312_SD2 that was heard in the House Committee on Health has been deferred.

Midwives Alliance of Hawaii believes that the best way to move forward with legislation is to continue to support the principle of midwifery licensure.
