URGENT CALL TO ACTION: RE: SB 1353

Posted by Susan Thomas on 02/08/2018
CALL TO ACTION!
 
Senator Ervin Yen has introduced a Senate bill that requires our immediate action. 
Below is a list of the members of the Senate's Health and Human Services Committee. 
If your Senator is a member of this committee, contact them immediately and let them 
know you oppose Senate Bill 1353. 

Senate Bill 1353 - This legislation would create a new license for an "Assistant 
Physician." Assistant Physicians have been introduced in Arkansas and Missouri in 
the last two years and have created a great deal of confusion about the scope of practice 
of a PA vs. an assistant physician. It is absolutely unnecessary.  We need to let the 
members of the Health and Human Services Committee, of which Senator Yen is the Chairperson, know that we are strongly opposed.  This bill is not on a meeting agenda, 
yet, and should not be heard.  
 
If your legislator is a member of the Health Committee (see list below), please take immediate action to voice your opposition 
to this bill.

Members of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee:

Senator Ervin Yen, Oklahoma City:  (405) 521-5543 
Senator Rob Standridge, Norman:  (405) 521-5535 
Senator Kim David, Wagoner:  (405) 521-5590

Senator AJ Griffin, Guthrie:  (405) 521-5628 
Senator Allison Ikley-Freeman, Tulsa:  (405) 521-5600
