The bill authorizes county public hospitals and affiliates and health
service districts and affiliates authorized under certain statutory
provisions, all of which are in rural areas of the state, to engage in
activities that might be characterized as anticompetitive or that might
result in a monopoly or displace competition.
The activities that a county public hospital or health service district

may engage in include, among others, joint ventures, joint purchasing
agreements, and joint negotiations.
In exercising these powers, the county public hospital or health
service district or its affiliate is performing essential public functions on
behalf of the state and is immune from any liability under federal and
state antitrust laws.
