ASDSA model bills garner increased attention
ASDSA’s SUNucate and PULSE initiatives are starting to see some legislative action throughout the states as the 2017 legislative session is now in full swing. Thanks to supporters of ASDSA’s SUNucate initiative, Arizona, Georgia, Rhode Island and Washington state legislatures have all formally introduced versions of ASDSA’s model legislation to ensure children have access to sunscreen in school. Florida, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts are all expected to introduce similar legislation in the next few weeks.
Additionally, ASDSA’s model legislation, supported by the Patients and Physicians United for Laser Safety and Efficacy (PULSE) coalition effort, is designed to protect patients undergoing laser procedures and has once again been introduced in Rhode Island.
ASDSA continues to search for partners for both the PULSE and SUNucate initiatives. If you are interested in advancing these initiatives in your state, please firstname.lastname@example.org.
