Every legislative session is unique, and 2023 was no exception. A large contingent of new representatives and senators meant that there would be a learning curve for both elected officials and lobbyists. It was also the first session since 2020 that wasn’t overly affected by the pandemic. As for physicians, the session was a frustrating one. There was not a physician in the Senate for the first time in 12 years. Other groups noticed, and introduced a record number of scope-of-practice bills. Some of those passed. On the other hand, it was a good year for some public health initiatives that we have pursued for years. Through it all, MSMA remains the voice for physicians in Jefferson City.
SLMMS invites you to join the MSMA lobbying team on Wednesday, September 27 at 6:00 p.m. via a Zoom webinar to receive a recap of the 2023 Legislative Session and what new laws are impacting the practice of medicine in Missouri. Plus, a preview of the upcoming 2024 session followed by a Q & A session. 2023-24 MSMA President Dr. Lancer Gates will also provide an update from our state organization.
Join us as we welcome MSMA’s new lobbyists – Rachel Bauer, Director of Government Relations, and Jacob Scott, Director of Legislative Affairs.
