MMA Legislative Committee Chair, Jay Mullen, M.D. welcomes you to participate in the weekly conference calls of the MMA Legislative Committee. 

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 actions of the week. The calls rarely last longer than an hour. 

Legislative Committee members and specialty society legislative liaisons are strongly encouraged to participate. Any physician, practice manager, or other 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. 

The next MMA Legislative Committee weekly conference call for the First Regular Session of the 130th Maine Legislature will take place Wednesday, April 7, at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom. 

You may now join the meeting with your computer or continue to connect by phone only. Please use the following Zoom meeting information. This will remain the same for every weekly call during the session.
