MMA Legislative Calls Will Begin Tuesday, January 14th
MMA Legislative Committee Chairs Jay Mullen, M.D. and Lindsey Tweed, M.D. welcome you to participate in the weekly conference calls of the MMA Legislative Committee.
The first MMA Legislative Committee weekly conference call for the Second Regular Session of the 129th Maine Legislature will take place Tuesday, January 14th, at 8:00 p.m.
Legislative Committee members and specialty society legislative
strongly encouraged to participate. Any physician, practice manager, or
staff member who is interested in the MMA's legislative advocacy also is
welcome to participate. It is not necessary to RSVP for the calls. To
date the Legislature has printed approximately 1700 bills, and as the
deadline for committee consideration is approaching the number of bills
printed each week is beginning to dwindle. While that makes the work of
the legislative call shorter, it also allows for more in-depth
discussion of significant matters.
Please use the following conference call number and passcode. These will remain the same for every weekly call during the session.
Conference call number: 1-603-766-5646
Participant ID - 699139#
The purpose of the weekly conference calls is to discuss the MMA's position on bills printed the previous week, to hear the views of specialty societies on the new bills or their concerns about any current health policy issues, and to discuss the highlights of legislative action of the week. The calls rarely last longer than an hour.
The following are bills of interest to the physician community
last week. (For those not familiar with the term, a "concept draft" is a
bill that contains only a title and a brief description of what it is
intended to do. It does not contain the actual bill text.) We will
discuss the priority bills marked with an asterisk
