AK Legislative Session

ASHNHA’s goal is to have a sustainable health care system in the near term and to support the transformation of the health care system over the long term.

The health care industry touches many aspects of public policy and ASHNHA monitors a broad spectrum of issues. During the state legislative session, ASHNHA convenes a Legislative Committee to guide policy decisions and holds a weekly meeting for health care lobbyists and government affairs staff.
