Scott Grosskreutz

Hawaii has a severe shortage of healthcare professionals .  Senator Lorraine Inouye introduced SB1035 to exempt the healthcare of Medicare , Medicaid and TriCare patients from GET taxation.  The successful passage of this bill will increase the number of doctors, dentists and nurses able to care for our kupuna, economically disadvantaged and military veterans and their families on the Big Island.  Mahalo Nui Aloha to the Senator for looking out for our local communities!

State Senate President Ron Kouchi
