Washington State Senate passes Bill to Provide health care for Marshall Islanders

The State of Washington just passed bill 5683, to provide health care more Marshallese living in Washington.

The arguing point for passing the bill was that the US used the Marshall islands to conduct nuclear testings in Bikini atoll and that the US owed this to the people of Marshall islands.

The Marshall islands testings were the key factor to passing bill 5683. Citizens of Palau and FSM are also included in the heath care coverage in bill 5683.
