|Subject:||Amending the Chiropractic Practice Act|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to provide for an exemption to allow chiropractic interns and students to perform chiropractic activities under the supervision of a licensee, instructor or supervisor.
Currently, a chiropractic intern cannot obtain experience within the Commonwealth which lessens the chance of that student becoming a practitioner and remaining in the Commonwealth. There are no chiropractic educational programs in the Commonwealth, partly because this exemption does not exist. There is interest in establishing these programs and this exemption will provide a great incentive. The PA Chiropractic Association supports this legislation.
I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Introduced as HB1737
