Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Health Survey Act of 2009 - Amends the Public Health Service Act to require the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to award a contract or grant to an entity to develop and conduct a health survey regarding Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders in the United States, U.S. territories, and affiliated Pacific jurisdictions in order to:
(1) identify their unmet health and health care needs; and
(2) establish baseline health information to achieve equity in health information for the Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander community.
Requires such data collection efforts to be targeted to areas with the highest concentrations of Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders based on the 2010 decennial census.
Directs the Secretary to award a contract or grant to an entity to: (1) analyze and prepare the data collected under this Act for distribution; and (2) submit the data, analysis, and any corresponding documents to the National Center for Health Statistics for internal review.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.


No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
