ASRT Legislative Update

Apr 20, 2023

The ASRT government relations team actively monitors state and federal legislative and regulatory issues that could affect the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession. The Society provides periodic updates so radiologic technologists can stay informed and get involved.

To ensure the radiologic technology community has up-to-date legislative information, the government relations team publishes a blog. The current update includes information about legislative efforts in Tennessee, New Hampshire and North Carolina. In addition, the team sent letter campaigns to voice opposition on encroachment and inappropriate scope expansion in seven states.

For technologists who want to contact their elected officials about legislative and regulatory issues, the Society offers the ASRT Advocacy Action Center. It is a resource for the radiologic technology community to learn about what is going on in their states. The Advocacy Action Center also provides technologists with the tools to contact state and federal officials.
