State and Local Issues
The ACR takes a proactive approach to legislative and regulatory trends across the country and assists chapters with state-level legislative and regulatory initiatives. We accomplish this by monitoring legislation and coordinating communication and sharing of resources among chapters.
ACR staff monitors hundreds of radiology-related bills introduced in state legislatures each year. Issues we track include teleradiology licensing and practice requirements, certificate of need laws, billing issues, radiologist assistant licensure and medical liability reform.
State Government Relations Committee
The state government relations committee meets regularly to evaluate state legislative and regulatory proposals and actions. Loralie Ma, MD, FACR, is chair of the committee. Committee members drive advocacy within their respective chapters and inform ACR advocacy in statehouses nationwide. The ACR staff collects, analyzes and disseminates resources to state chapters. Please send questions to Eugenia Brandt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
