The Legislative Committee, chaired by Kevin Harmon and Megan Fulton, has successfully led the modernization of the 2019 PA Practice Act. The bill (S.132) was signed into law on May 13, 2019 by Governor McMaster and will go into effect August 11, 2019. The bill decreases administrative burdens when applying for PA licensure and allows PAs to increase access to care for patients and their families.
