Access to Healthcare
As a former social worker, Rep. LaPointe is a strong advocate for the human service sector and social net. Prior to COVID-19, she was leading several bills to expand access to healthcare and increase reimbursement rates for community healthcare providers. During the May special session in Springfield, Rep. LaPointe voted in favor of crucial legislation to ensure hospital and Medicaid funding during this pandemic. She continuously fights for accessible and affordable healthcare – including mental healthcare – to keep everyone in our community healthy.

Rep. LaPointe sits on the Energy and Environmental Committee, and she is proud to say that the Clean Energy and Jobs Act (CEJA) was the first bill she signed onto as a new legislator.
