Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act
This bill, passed out of the House in January, originally didn’t include PTs but our advocacy from the Sports Section, along with support from APTA staff, led to PTs being included in the list of eligible providers. We are extremely thankful for the overwhelming support this legislation received, and are pleased to announce this bill has now passed through the Senate on June 29. This legislation is imperative to gaining the necessary protections to allow us to continue to provide these crucial sports medicine services to athletes as they travel across the Country. Please email your Senators through APTA’s Legislative Action Center and request that they cosponsor this bill today!
