Summary:
Solicitation of contributions; exemptions. Adds community health centers and rural health clinics to the health care institutions exemption from registration requirements by redefining "health care institutions" to include (i) facilities designated by the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) as federally qualified health centers or (ii) certified by HCFA as rural health clinics. The exemption currently applies to health care institutions granted tax exempt status under 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and any supporting organizations. This bill is identical in substance to HB 1269; however, the versions vary in technical amendments made.
