Legislative Advocacy Overview
Advocacy for physicians and patients at the state and national levels is a key element of your membership. Members are empowered with the information and support necessary to participate in policy debates.  
MSMA advocacy takes place in several forms:
  • Writing, proposing, promoting and opposing legislation;
  • Testifying before and meeting with legislators and regulators;
  • Participating in task forces, advisory groups and commissions.    
You can also learn more about the legislative process with political advocacy training, effective talking points and briefings on health care issues. We encourage you also to meet with your legislators and attend legislative committee hearings. Your Association also monitors more than 2,000 bills and reams of rules and regulations every year to insure that your voice is heard.
