Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation sets forth requirements for lobbying disclosures when promoting or opposing any matter before one or more local coordinating entities.  The bill also provides that no person may serve on the local coordinating entity in each health district for the EMSC program more than two years and may only serve as chairperson for one year.  The proposed statute would set forth a new procedure whereby another health district would be the final arbitrator of appeals in any given health district.  The proposal would also require that the local coordinating entity request new proposal from ambulance providers at least every five years.  Additionally, there is new language that requires that each provider comply with safety standards established by the board which may be based on the national safety standards of the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services, and requires additional mandatory monthly reporting regarding calls and response times.
