ASRT Legislative Efforts Begin Strong in 2024

May 13, 2024

The ASRT Government Relations Department is off to a strong start in 2024. The team continues its efforts to elevate and protect the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession and to monitor legislative actions at the state and the federal level.

Information about the department’s work can be found on its blog located on the Advocacy Action Center webpage. The blog includes information about the launch of advocacy action campaigns to support legislative efforts in three states as well as successes in protecting and expanding licensure in New Hampshire, Michigan and Washington. Read about the department’s actions to oppose various issues of encroachment, inappropriate scope of practice expansion, remote imaging and deregulation through letter writing campaigns in seven states. ASRT also continues to collaborate with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and other partner radiologic science organizations to support advocacy efforts in numerous states.

The Advocacy Action Center is a resource for the radiologic technology community to learn about the legislative efforts in their states. It also provides technologists with the tools to contact state and federal officials.
