Health and Human Services

NCSL's Standing Committees are comprised of legislators and legislative staff appointed to serve by legislative leaders in their states. The committees develop NCSL's policy positions on federal issues of interest to state legislatures and provide a forum for state legislators and legislative staff to discuss key public policy issues of interest to states. The Health and Human Services Committee is responsible for protecting states' interests in federal decisions regarding Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Medicare, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, child welfare and aging services and a host of other programs that provide critically important services to individuals and families. The committee also provides members an opportunity to share and learn from the experiences of other states in shaping health and human services policy and addressing key health and human services issues in the states.
