Support HB 91 and SB 132

HB 91

 

5.14.2021  РDr. McKayla Dick, AKVMA president and Dr. Mary Ann Hollick, AVMA House Delegate testified in support of HB 91 at the House Labor and Commerce Committee Meeting.

 

SB 132

 

The PDMP for Alaskan Veterinarians is:

  • UNUSABLE
  • NOT PRACTICAL OR EFFECTIVE
  • CREATING UNECESSARY BUSINESS BURDENS
  • ADDING COSTS

 

Why It Makes SENSE to Exempt Veterinarians from the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
