February 18, 2020 Update on HB 2378 

Our PA Bill passed the House on February 15th

On Feb 5th, 60+ PAs and PA students came to the capital for our second annual legislative day and it was a success! Our bill passed the house on Feb 15th with a unanimous decision, because of you! The system works, but we are not done.

Our bill is scheduled to go before the Senate Health and Wellness committee on Friday, February 21st  at 8:00 am. Linda Dale and I will testify on behalf of WAPA.  You are invited to observe and support this effort. We have until early March in this short session to pass the bill in the senate and have it become law.  Our focus if passed, will be to educate employers of the changes enacted by the bill. This is an uphill climb and will be executed by your president elect Gabe Zecha with the WAPA Legislative Committee, WAPA Board of Directors and you, our membership.
