Last week, the Massachusetts Senate passed an omnibus healthcare reform bill to lower costs, improve patient care, and maintain access to healthcare. One amendment added by State Senator Adam Hinds, a Pittsfield Democrat, was based on pending legislation in the House to help volunteer ambulance services in rural communities. WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief JD Allen spoke with Representative Paul Mark of the 2rd Berkshire state House District, who authored the legislation.

The state House is expected to take on the HEALTH Act in the new year.
