Current Agenda

2013 General Assembly

The 2013 General Assembly is over but you can see the bills we were tracking and lobbying on the Legislation Tracking tab at left. That page will provide you a list of bills important to emergency medicine and their status.

VACEP retains the services of The Hillbridge Group for government relations services and lobbying. Read the weekly blog by Aimee Perron Seibert at the Member Action Center tab.

VACEP’s legislative agenda is successful when members participate in the process!

A community of empowered emergency physicians know their legislators and communicate with them before they are required to vote on any matter.

For starters:

  1. If you do not know who your legislators are, find out now! Click here to go to the Virginia General Assembly website to find your legislator.
  2. Look and see which committees your legislators are assigned. VACEP will send alerts to emergency physicians for whom we have an email address, when your legislator is voting in committee on bills we are actively pursuing. Contact information for all House and Senate members is also found on the Virginia General Assembly website.
