State Advocacy Issues and Resources
ACEP works with its chapters to support local legislation favorable to emergency medicine. In this section of ACEP.org you’ll find a clearinghouse of information on legislative and regulatory issues and how-to tips for developing state advocacy programs.
ACEP and its chapters work together to pursue critical state legislative initiatives such as addressing the medical liability crisis, ensuring patient access to emergency medical care, and promoting public safety.
StateScan features news on key state issues, highlights examples of ACEP chapters’ advocacy efforts, links to ACEP advocacy resources for chapters, and provides access to the current text and status of bills of interest to emergency medicine from state legislatures across the country.
