OSCA District 7 Legislative Banquet – OSCA D7 hosted State Representative and former Supreme Court Justice, Bob Cupp and Senator Cliff Hite at their event on April 11th.
House Bill 276 – Substitute House Bill 276 (nutrition) unanimously passed the House Health & Aging Committee! Thank you to bill sponsor Representative Schuring and Chairwomen Gonzales for working with the OSCA on this legislation.
We look forward to this bill moving to the House floor for a vote in the near future!
House Bill 169 (PT Scope of Practice) – The OSCA continues to work with the bill’s sponsor on language compromises. The OSCA and other healthcare associations continue to oppose the bill that calls for PT’s to have direct access to patients. Until these compromises are worked out it seems to be clear the bill will not be moving. No New Update
