- An insurance policy issued, renewed, amended, or continued in this state shall provide coverage for embryo, oocyte, and sperm cryopreservation procedures, for an insured who is at least
eighteen years of age and has been diagnosed with cancer but has not started cancer treatment, including chemotherapy, biotherapy, or radiation therapy treatment.

Introduced comprehensive foster care bill
Other work is still being done in the Statehouse, including Neely's comprehensive bill on improving foster care. "The reason I came down here, as a physician, I didn't come down here because of healthcare issues. I came down here because of children,
and the things that I've seen over my years." The legislation would allow abuse investigations outside the state, update background checks on foster families, expand treatment for children in foster care, and much more.

Outlaw "revenge porn," but don't blame broadband providers
The bill, introduced by Republican Jim Neely, would outlaw "nonconsensual dissemination of private sexual images." An amendment added by Neely also would ban people from threatening to distribute those images.
Several lawmakers spoke in favor of the bill while no one appeared to speak or vote against it. The bill says communications networks, such as broadband providers, are not automatically liable if they unwittingly distribute those images.
