We Help You Have A Voice!
Join us in fighting for legislation that will help physicians practice medicine without interference from over regulation and protect their patients with decisions made by doctors not politicians.
Current State Legislation
Please call your Representative, and urge them to oppose House Bill 4359, dangerous legislation that threatens patient safety by allowing Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) to practice independently, without physician supervision.
Current Federal Legislation
