Purpose of Committee:
The Legislative Committee advocates for the PAs in Michigan and is a leader in protecting the PA practice environment in Michigan. The committee regularly interacts with legislators in Lansing on issues that are important and affect PAs. The committee also develops and maintains relationships with other health care organizations and creates legislative initiatives to promote and protect the PA profession in Michigan.
The committee has been active during an election year to show support for PA friendly legislators and attend their fundraisers to discuss pertinent PA issues with them.
Currently, the Legislative Committee is working with House of Representative Ned Canfield, D.O. on the PA legislation that was introduced in the House called HB 5533.
The committee has also been involved in updating language and modernizing the Mental Health Code of Michigan to include PAs and to support those PAs practicing in Psychiatry or practices where PAs treat mental health patients.
