    Here's another issue you need to support.

    Ever wonder why CRNA's are the only providers in some rural counties, which they constantly want to remind us of? One reason is that hospitals have a financial dis-incentive to use anesthesiologists. The hospital can actually get more money by hiring CRNA's than it does with anesthesiologists. Strange but true. This bill seeks to correct that inequity.
