Representative Abigail Griffin

Representative Griffin is a retired teacher and is serving in her first term in the Maine House of Representatives. She has worked hard to successfully cosponsor several bills working collaboratively with her colleagues, including:

LD 84: Resolve, Directing the Department of Health and Human Services To Allow Spouses To Provide Home and Community-based Services to Eligible MaineCare Members, LD 136: An Act To Establish a Special Education Circuit Breaker Reimbursement Program, LD 145: An Act To Expand the Membership of the Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine, LD 359: An Act To Address Student Hunger with a “Breakfast after the Bell” Program, LD 985: An Act To Maintain High School Diploma Standards by Repealing Proficiency-based Diploma Standards, LD 1263: An Act To Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence and To Support Survivors, and LD 1319: An Act To Prohibit Employer Disciplinary Action against Firefighters and Emergency Medical Services Persons Responding to an Emergency.

Health & Human Services

The HHS Committee is responsible for reviewing all new bills relating to the Department of Health and Human Services; MaineCare/Medicaid; children’s welfare and mental health services; child care; maternal and infant health; public health; lead and water testing; immunization; tobacco and e-cigarette sale and use; medical use of marijuana; eating, lodging and campground licensing and inspection; opioid medications and limits; state health system planning; health care facilities; health care workforce; telemedicine; oral health and dental care; substance use disorder; mental health; developmental disability; aging; elderly and disability issues; home and community-based longterm care; nursing facilities and residential care; palliative and end- of-life care; and public assistance.

I’m looking forward to learning a lot more about what Maine is doing to promote the health and wellbeing of our citizens. I think there is a lot more that can be done, especially in rural areas like ours, and it will be up to the HHS Committee to endorse proposals that help the Department make improvements where they are needed, and to keep successful programs going strong.”
