LT. Governor's Sine Die Visit to Lawmakers

On Sine Die, LT. Gov. Burt Jones discusses his support for the contentious hospital certificate of need bill, which Republicans claim would ease hospital development in areas with less than 50,000 people. Opponents of the bill say it will be bad business for existing rural hospitals, and that Jones’ support could be a conflict of interest.
