IDHA President Bunge and Legislative Chairperson Benkert met with Senator Sandoval prior to the Senate Committee hearing to address concerns regarding SB 2849. Senator Sandoval indicated he heard from many RDH and public member opponents of SB 2849 and their voices were heard for today’s hearing. Small successes make a difference, and today the collective voices of RDH, DDS, and public member opponents of these two bills were heard.
Both HB 4414 and SB 2849 are still alive and can be called at any time until the committee deadline near the end of March. Opponents of SB 2849 and HB 4414 must remain vigilant in submitting e-slips and contacting the legislators on both committees along with the legislators in their House and Senate voting districts.
Please remember to also contact your legislators and the Committees above to support SB 2847 and HB 4441: Collaborative Practice between Licensed Registered Dental Hygienists and Licensed Dentists!!!!
