Opt In for State Legislative Updates

American College of Radiology (ACR) members can now stay abreast of legislative developments relevant to radiology in their states or other states across the nation by opting in to receive weekly email reports through the College’s collaboration with StateScape, a respected legislation tracking service.

ACR has worked with StateScape since November 2015 to secure continuous, comprehensive updates on radiology and health care-related legislation. The tracking service has helped state chapter leaders monitor legislative developments in their states and has guided the ACR’s national political advocacy efforts. Advocacy in Action features weekly StateScape coverage that links readers to the status of hundreds of tracked bills while state legislatures are in session.

To assist with preparations for 2017 legislative sessions, ACR staff can help facilitate “guest caller” interaction during quarterly State Government Relations Committee discussions on various legislative issues. During the calls, ACR chapter members can communicate with their colleagues to take away important feedback to guide their chapters’ legislative strategy development.

Please contact Eugenia Brandt, ACR director of state governmental affairs, at ebrandt@acr.org to opt in to StateScape reports or if you have a legislative/regulatory issue that you would like to highlight for the committee.
