Advocacy Day


Mark Your Calendar for February 20, 2020 at the State Capitol  

We need constituents / key persons for each and every legislator! This day is invaluable to your practice and your profession. Please schedule a day out of the office with us.

Be there to defend Optometry! If we don’t meet with the Legislators, but our opponents do, they win! We need to educate our legislators about the importance of laws that protect Optometry and our ability to serve our patients.  Without these legislative meetings, everything we have fought so hard to gain could be taken away from us.

2019 Advocacy Day Update 

SB 129, Telemedicine modernization, passed unanimously out of the Senate Health Care Committee and is on to the 2nd of 4 stops, the Senate Floor for a final vote in the upper chamber.  SB 575 had a phenomenal and star-studded public hearing and closed with the Chair directing the one voice of opposition to continue discussions with us and to come to some positive conclusion before we reach the legislative deadline. 

Here are video clips of the testimony.    SB 575  [Fwd to ~33m]  &  SB 129  [Fwd to ~16m 30s]
