It is also currently in committee.In an op ed letter, the representatives are joined by Senators Corbin and Shane Martin in saying their trust in GHS was shaken when the board “unilaterally restructured and leased our publicly owned, multibillion dollar asset without the legislative delegation’s input or consent as law requires.”They believe the bill to sell GHS is the best solution to the problem, allowing the system to move forward as a private entity.
