Before you go…

During a crisis like this, it’s more important than ever to dig beyond the news, to figure out what government policies mean for ordinary citizens and how those policies were put together.

This is perhaps the biggest, most consequential story our reporters will ever cover. And at no other time in Civil Beat’s history have we relied on your support more. Please consider supporting Civil Beat by making a tax-deductible gift.

Though not in complete agreement with many of his measures, the LG's  commitment to his first profession is commendable and his dedication to OUR state and his fellow physicians, who are unable to perform their duties for whatever reason, is admirable. The outer islands are facing HUGE shortages and amidst the Covid pandemic, we are going to see more and more physicians dealing with PTSD to the point of job abandonment, and our legislators are concerned with tying the hands of a man who is trying to fulfill his overwhelming desire to help others? Shame on you legislators. It's obvious what is being done this legislative session. I've never seen how hard individuals have tried to hide and control "minions" for the future, as I've seen this session. Appalling !!!!
