MA S.2634 (S.665) Passed the Public Health Committee – Now Ask the Senate Ways and Means Committee to Send it to the Floor!
Great News! The Massachusetts Safe Harbor Practitioner Exemption Bill, S.2634 (formerly S.665/H.3660), is one step closer to becoming law! The Joint House and Senate Public Health Committee recently passed S.2634 out of committee and sent it to the Senate Ways and Means committee. PleaseTake Action here to urge legislators to send it now to the Senate floor for a vote. After passing the Senate, the bill will need to be voted on by the full House, as well, before session ends in July!
We acknowledge legislators are tied-up handling the COVID-19 crisis and want to be sensitive to that. Yet, we believe S.2634 is now more important than ever given its potential to both reduce the strain on allopathic care providers and to boost the economy by supporting small alternative healthcare businesses in Massachusetts!
Take Actioneven if your Senator is not on Senate Ways and Means Committee, and even if you’ve already contacted your legislators about this bill. Informing them about the progress of S.2634 reminds them of your interests and encourages them to tune in to this important, solution-oriented, bill.
Please help get the bill the attention it deserves!Massachusetts is SO close to becoming the 12th Safe Harbor state and we don’t want it to be forgotten during this time when legislators are so focused on COVID-19-specific legislation! The bill is waiting to be sent to the Senate floor! Help it move by Take Action here. After Taking Action, you’ll receive an email with info about calling your legislators including a sample message.
Together we can protect complementary and alternative health practitioners who are vulnerable to being charged criminally for practicing medicine – or other licensed health care profession – without a license!
