Legislative VictoriesThe APTA of Maryland has been working hard to protect your scope of practice. The legislative session ended on April 10th. The recently concluded 2017 Session was a successful one for the Maryland Chapter. During the Session 2878 bills were introduced, and we reviewed - as did several of our members - each of the bills introduced. The key issues we dealt with were an expansion of the scope of practice of athletic trainers, and a workers' compensation bill that could have adversely affected payment of claims for treatment of an injured worker.
