State Advocacy

APTA State Government Affairs is here to assist state chapters reach their state legislative goals and defend the physical therapy scope of practice from infringement. In addition to tracking and analyzing various state legislation, assisting with grassroots, and formulating legislative strategies, we offer a variety of services for chapters outlined below. We are also available (schedule permitting) to speak at chapter meetings on state legislative issues.
