MIDDLETOWN - Sen. Stephanie Hansen honored Kim Thompson’s third grade class at Cedar Lane Elementary School Thursday morning for the students’ efforts to support to local animal rescue organizations.
Hansen presented a Senate tribute to Thompson and her students during class Thursday morning after they worked to organize a school-wide drive for pet food, toys and other supplies that were donated to Doggone Happy Animal Rescue and Faithful Friends.
DOVER - In a 38-0 vote, the Delaware House of Representatives has passed Senate Bill 41 overwhelmingly.
SB 41, sponsored by Stephanie Hansen, D-Middletown, would save lives and help stem the addiction epidemic by requiring health insurers to cover medically necessary treatment for addiction—including diagnosis, medication for addiction and/or withdrawal, and in-patient treatment—for up to 14 days without requiring patients to clear pre-admission hurdles like pre-authorization or medical referrals.
Hansen called the House vote a victory for addicts and families across the state.
