Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts recently signed L.B. 755, which streamlined statutory language relating to PA practice and made changes allowing improved care to patients. Among other things, the law removes language stating that a PA is the agent of the PA’s supervising physician.
Priority legislation for the Florida Academy of PAs, HB 713, becomes law giving PAs a majority in the regulation of the profession, one of the pillars of Optimal Team Practice. The new law modifies the composition of the PA Council.
