The bill also would create a legislative oversight committee of delegates and senators to monitor state police procurement of new medevac helicopters and safety improvements to the state's emergency medical system.

The emergency medical transport system has faced strong scrutiny after a fatal helicopter crash and critical legislative audit last year.
The legislation still needs final approval in the House and votes in the Senate before reaching the governor's desk.
