Committee Purpose

The purpose of the Legislative Committee is to monitor and react to all legislative activities that would affect the practice of physical therapy; disseminate legislative information to districts via liaisons for input; develop legislation that reflects the changes in scope and need of the practice of physical therapy and, in accordance with the membership needs; develop guidelines for members to react to legislation in an appropriate, professional and informed manner; and identify methods of recruiting support for our legislative interests.
