PPE DOT Legislative Effort and Subsequent Sunrise Application

In 2013, the WSCA initiated legislation that would amend the chiropractic statutes against discrimination by stating that “licensed chiropractors must be allowed to perform sports physicals for student athletes and physical examinations required for commercial driver’s licenses. The bill, HB 1573, prime sponsored by Paul Harris (R-Vancouver), was met with a barrage of insulting accusations and negative testimony during its initial hearing and did not receive the support needed to pass out of the House Health Care Committee. The committee bill analysis  doesn’t capture the summary of the testimony but the actual testimony can be seen in the TVW video, beginning at 39:51 starting with the staff bill report. However; the House Health Care Committee Chair, Eileen Cody (D-34), agreed to refer the bill to the Department of Health for Sunrise Review during the legislative interim.

 

The WSCA prepared the Sunrise application with support from Dr. William Moreau, Vice President, Sports Medicine Division at United States Olympic Committee, Dr. Robert  Nelson, D.C., D.A.C.B.S.P., C.C.E.P., F.I.A.M.A., C.S.C.S., F.I.C.C., Advanced Practice Chiropractor, Lakewood Colorado, Dr. Justin Nabhan, Vice President, Sports Medicine Division at United States Olympic Committee, Dr. Gary Schultz, Professor and Chair Clinical Services, University of Western State, and Lori Grassi, WSCA Executive Director and Lobbyist.

 

The following documents are in chronological order of the events that occurred during the Sunrise Review process. Following the final Sunrise rebuttal by the WSCA, no further action has been taken by the WSCA.
