At this time SB 801 is not rescheduled on the Senate Committee’s agenda; however HB 2267 is a “work session” bill. This is the bill that provides an exemption for individuals performing ophthalmic sonography. Since the RT statute will be open for amendment with this bill, the ARNPs may try to get the text of SB 801 rolled into HB 2267. There is a currently a hearing scheduled for HB 2267 on Thursday, March 9th at 1:00 PM. OSRT is working diligently with other societies and medical professionals to bring awareness to this extremely important piece of legislation.
